Queen Elizabeth was buried in the King George VI Memorial Chapel at Windsor Castle.

The private service took place on Monday evening (19.09.22), with the monarch being buried with her husband, Prince Philip, who died in April 2021, aged 99.

A statement on the Royal Family’s website read: “The Queen was buried with the Duke of Edinburgh, at the King George VI Memorial Chapel.”

The service was led by the Dean of Windsor, the Very Reverend David Connor, and brought together close members of the monarch’s family.

The Queen’s coffin was interred with the camp color of the Queen’s Company of the Grenadier Guards – which is a version of the regiment’s Royal Standard – and was placed on the coffin earlier by King Charles at the end of the incarceration service at Windsor.

Ahead of the service, the Royal Family posted details of the funeral on Twitter.

Alongside a black and white photo of the Queen, her husband, her parents – George VI and the Queen Mother – and her sister Princess Margaret, a caption read: “Tonight a private funeral will be held at the King George VI Memorial Chapel in Windsor.

“The Queen will be laid to rest with her late husband, the Duke of Edinburgh, alongside her father, King George VI, her mother, Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother, and her sister, Princess Margaret.”

Prince William and Catherine, Princess of Wales also paid tribute to Britain’s longest-serving monarch on social media.

Alongside a black and white photograph taken at the funeral, they said in a heartfelt message on Twitter: “Goodbye to a Queen, a Mother, a Grandmother and a Great Grandmother.”
