London: Buckingham Palace has released a photograph on Saturday of Queen Elizabeth II’s final resting place at the royal chapel in Windsor. The photograph shows a ledger stone bearing Queen’s 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, news agency Reuters reported.

The queen was interred there on Monday after a state funeral in Westminister Abbey.
The brass scribbling on the stone reads “George VI 1895-1952 / Elizabeth 1900-2002” on the top two lines, followed by a garter star and then “Elizabeth II 1926-2022 / Philip 1921-2021” on the bottom two lines.
Queen Elizabeth’s sister, Princess Margaret, is also interred at the chapel, at Windsor Castle west of London.
Queen Elizabeth II, Britain’s longest-reigning monarch, passed away on September 8 at the age of 96. She took her last breath at Balmoral Castle, her summer home in the Scottish highlands. Her reign as the queen of England lasted for over 70 years.
