Queen Elizabeth’s coffin was interred at St. George’s Chapel.

The monarch has been lowered into the Royal Vault of the Windsor Estate Chapel, where he will remain until 7.30pm Monday (19.09.22), when a private burial will take place.

During the service of committal, the Dean of Windsor received the Instruments of State – the Imperial Crown of State, orb and scepter which had been placed on the coffin – from the Queen’s bargemaster and a sergeant-at-arms.

At the end of the service’s final hymn, “Christ Is Made The Sure Foundation”, King Charles came forward to place the camp color of the Queen’s Company of the Grenadier Guards on his mother’s coffin and the Lord Chamberlain broke his desk wand and placed this on it.

The Dean recited Psalm 103.

He said, “As a father has mercy on his own children: so the Lord is merciful to those who fear him.” Because he knows what we are made of: he remembers that we are only dust. Man’s days are only like grass, for he blooms like the flower of the field. For as soon as the wind passes over her, she goes away, and her place will know her no more. But the merciful goodness of the Lord abides forever and ever on those who fear him, and his justice on their children’s children.

“Go on a journey out of this world, O Christian soul; In the name of God the Almighty Father who created you; In the name of Jesus Christ who suffered for you; In the name of the Holy Spirit who strengthens you.

“In fellowship with the blessed saints, and aided by the angels and archangels, and all the armies of the heavenly host, let your portion be in peace this day, and your dwelling place in heavenly Jerusalem. Amen.”

The Garter King of Arms then proclaimed the Queen’s styles and titles as her coffin was lowered.

He said: “So it has pleased Almighty God to remove from this transitory life to His Divine Mercy the fire the most high, mighty and most excellent monarch, Elizabeth II, by the grace of God of the Kingdom- Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and Her Other Kingdoms and Territories Queen, Head of the Commonwealth, Defender of the Faith and Sovereign of the Most Noble Order of the Garter.

The Queen’s piper then played a lament and the service ended with a blessing from the Archbishop of Canterbury before the national anthem was played.

He said: “Go into the world in peace; Be of good courage, hold fast to what is good, do not return evil for evil to anyone; strengthen the timid, sustain the weak, help the afflicted, honor all, love and serve the Lord, rejoice in the power of the Holy Spirit; And may the blessing of Almighty God, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit be among you and abide with you always. Amen.”
