Queen Elizabeth II’s body finally laid to rest

 

Queen Elizabeth II’s coffin was on Monday, 19th of September, 2022 lowered into the Royal Vault at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle, bringing to an end public mourning for Britain’s longest-reigning queen.

The “second Elizabethan age” was symbolically brought to a close when the highest-ranking official in the royal household, Lord Chamberlain Andrew Parker, broke his wand of office.

The “instruments of state” with which she was crowned in 1953 — the Imperial State Crown, orb, and scepter — were removed from the coffin and placed on the high altar.
