Queen buried alongside her family, Royals say On Monday evening, the Royal Family said in its article on the day’s proceedings that the private ceremony had been completed and that “the Queen was buried together with The Duke of Edinburgh, at The King George VI Memorial Chapel.”

The UK will return to work on Tuesday following a public holiday on Monday to coincide with the state funeral, the first in the UK since the death of Elizabeth’s first prime minister, Winston Churchill, in January, 1965.

DW’s Robin Merrill reflects on service

DW’s veteran anchor Robin Merrill called the state funeral “an extraordinary day, the like of which I expect we’ll never see again, because I think Charles will pare down the monarchy a little bit.” Merrill called it “the culmination of the last 10 days and indeed the last 70 years of this extraordinary woman, who had an unwavering duty to serve that we’ve never really seen the like of.”Merrill said it had surprised many people, including himself, “how emotional I got about it, because she’s been the constant in my entire life. (…) There’s never been anybody else.””It’s going to be a hard act to follow,” he said, particularly given that the country is undergoing a change in monarch and prime minister virtually simultaneously.

Archbishop of Canterbury closes ceremony.

David White later spoke again to name Charles as Elizabeth’s successor in these titles and duties.The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, read out a benediction often used at the end of confirmation ceremonies starting, “Go forth into the world in peace; be of good courage; hold fast to that which is good; render to no one evil for evil.” One of the last hymns of the ceremony was then followed by the chorus of the British national anthem, revised in the past fortnight to “God Save the King.”

Coffin committed, bagpipes sound.

Dean of Windsor David Connor said a short psalm as the coffin began to descend into the royal vault in the chapel’s floor. Then David White, another member of the royal household, the Garter Principal King of Arms, read out her list of formal titles:”Thus, it hath pleased almighty God to take out of this transitory life unto His divine mercy the late, most high, most mighty, and most excellent monarch Elizabeth II.

By the grace of God, of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and all Northern Ireland, and of her other realms and territories, queen. Head of the Commonwealth, defender of the faith, and sovereign of the most noble order of the garter.” Bagpipe music sounded thereafter, a lament played by the late queen’s personal piper.

Instruments of state removed from coffin

The three instruments of state — the Imperial State Crown, the Orb and Scepter — were removed from the coffin in anticipation of the committal and placed on the high altar in the chapel. The Imperial State Crown is traditionally worn by the monarch at the end of coronation ceremonies and at formal events like the state opening of Parliament. But in recent years, given its quite considerable weight, Elizabeth had elected not to place it on her head. The Scepter is supposed to symbolize the monarch’s power and it has been used at every coronation for centuries.

The Orb, meanwhile, with a cross on it, is supposed to symbolize the power of God and remind the monarch where their power originates. King Charles then placed the colors of the queen’s company, the Grenadier Guards, on the coffin.

The queen’s Lord Chamberlain, the most senior official in her household and formerly MI5 spy chief Baron Parker, subsequently broke his Wand of Office and placed that atop the coffin along with the regiment’s colors.

The coffin, with the instruments of state placed on top of it, was carried into St George’s Chapel at roughly 16:15 local time (1515 UTC).King Charles III and the Queen Consort Camilla walked directly behind the pallbearers. Charles’ eldest son and heir, Prince William, wore military attire.

“We have come together to commit into the hands of God the soul of His servant, Queen Elizabeth. Here in St George’s Chapel, where she so often worshiped, we are bound to call to mind someone whose complicated yet profound Christian faith bore so much fruit,” David Connor, Dean of Windsor, said when opening the ceremony. “Fruit in a life of unstinting service to the nation, the Commonwealth and the wider world, but also — and especially to be remembered in this place — in kindness, concern and reassuring care for her family and friends and neighbors.” “In the midst of our rapidly changing and frequently troubled world, her calm and dignified presence has given us confidence to face the future as she did, with courage and with hope,” Connor said.
