Queen Elizabeth II’s resting place: Buckingham Palace releases photo of Queen’s tomb

 

Buckingham Palace has published a photograph of Queen Elizabeth‘s tomb at the Royal Chapel in Windsor, featuring a ledger stone bearing her name and those of her parents, and husband, Prince Philip.

 

The stone, made of black Belgian marble, sits in the King George VI Memorial Chapel, which Queen Elizabeth commissioned in 1962 as a burial place for George VI, her father.

 

The Queen was interred on Monday, September 19, 2022, after a State funeral in Westminster Abbey, London.
