Queen Elizabeth II Funeral Updates: Queen Laid To Rest Alongside Husband in Private Ceremony



The U.K. and much of the world spent Monday mourning Queen Elizabeth II, who was celebrated at a funeral at Westminster Abbey and brought to her final place of rest, St. George’s Chapel.

With the funeral concluded, and a private burial service held at 7:30 p.m. local time, a period of Royal Mourning is set to last for the next seven days, according to the wishes of the new king.
While the mourning period continues for the royal family, the transition of power has already occurred. The queen’s eldest son, Charles Philip Arthur George Windsor, 73, is now King Charles III of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. But the date for the formal coronation ceremony for the new king has not yet been announced.
Shortly after the queen was laid to rest, the royal family’s official Twitter account shared a new photo of Queen Elizabeth II climbing a hill with a walking stick in one hand and a coat draped over the other. She looks off in the distance, wearing sunglasses and a head scarf, as lush greenery fills the landscape behind her.

Along with the photo, the account shared a quote from William Shakespeare’s “Hamlet”: “May flights of Angels sing thee to thy rest.”
