The body of Queen Elizabeth was “buried” in the crypt of St. George’s Church, Windsor Castle. A few minutes earlier, the symbols of her reign had been removed from her coffin: the crown, the scepter and the orb. The royal piper played the last hymn and slowly left the chapel so that the reign of Charles III could be blessed and the long ceremony concluded with the audience chanting “God Save the King”.

Earlier, Britain observed a two-minute silence in memory of Elizabeth II at the climax of the ceremony at Westminster Abbey. The casket was placed back on the killivant which carried the remains of 142 sailors to the temple. The procession moved towards Wellington Arch – and now reached Windsor Castle.

King Charles, accompanied by his wife Camilla, Prince and Princess of Wales William and Kate, and grandchildren Prince George and Princess Charlotte stood in the front row at the Abbey, along with Elizabeth’s three other children, the royal Princess Anne, Andrew and Edward.

Hundreds of thousands of people have flooded London to pay their last respects to Britain’s longest-serving monarch. Her reign spanned two centuries, she swore in 15 prime ministers and she, Queen Elizabeth was the constant reference. A special presence at the funeral, that of nine-year-old Prince George and his seven-year-old sister Charlotte – a message of continuity for the monarchy, alongside their father, Crown Prince William.

Her children and her grandchildren, visibly moved, sang with the approximately 2,000 guests in the Abbey the farewell hymns, which had references to her reign, to the sense of duty that possessed her, but also symbolism. The Queen made her final journey to London. He will be buried at 9.30 pm (Greece time) in a private ceremony. Beside her, will rest Prince Philip, who remained in a crypt until Elizabeth’s death. She “endured” without Philip for less than a year and a half.
