On Monday, the body of the late Queen Elizabeth II will begin its final journey in the morning as part of a grand state funeral – first to Westminster Abbey, for a religious service in front of a congregation of thousands, and then on to Windsor Castle for a more intimate committal service and, finally, a private burial.
Around 1645, the committal service will come to an end and the King and members of the Royal Family will leave the chapel.
At 1930 hrs, that evening, at a private family service, the Queen will be buried together with her late husband, the Duke of Edinburgh, at the King George VI memorial chapel, located inside St George’s Chapel.
Her marble slab will be engraved ELIZABETH II 1926-2022.
