Previously unseen photo of Queen released after private burial takes place at Windsor | UK News

The Royal Family has released a previously unseen photograph of the Queen after she was laid to rest in a private burial.

The image of the monarch was taken at Balmoral in 1971, with the caption often borrowed from Shakespeare’s Hamlet: “May flights of Angels sing thee to thy rest.”

“In loving memory of Her Majesty The Queen.

“1926 – 2022.”

It comes shortly after the Royal Family said the Queen had been buried alongside her late husband, Prince Philip, at the King George VI Memorial Chapel, part of St George’s Chapel, in the grounds of Windsor Castle.

The family’s website said the burial service, attended by close family members, was conducted by the Dean of Windsor.

Before the burial, some 800 guests attended a committal service in St George’s, which concluded with the crown, orb and sceptre – symbols of the Queen’s power and governance – being removed from the coffin and placed on the altar.

The Lord Chamberlain, the most senior official in the royal household, then broke his ‘Wand of Office’, signifying the end of his service to the sovereign, and placed it on the casket before it slowly descended into the Royal Vault.

Earlier in the day, 2,000 people, including foreign royalty and world leaders, attended the Queen’s state funeral at Westminster Abbey in central London.

During his sermon, the Archbishop of Canterbury told the congregation the outpouring of emotion for the Queen “arises from her abundant life and loving service, now gone from us”.

He told mourners: “People of loving service are rare in any walk of life. Leaders of loving service are still rarer.

“But in all cases those who serve will be loved and remembered when those who cling to power and privileges are forgotten.

“The grief of this day – felt not only by the late Queen’s family but all round the nation, Commonwealth and world – arises from her abundant life and loving service, now gone from us.

“She was joyful, present to so many, touching a multitude of lives.”

The Queen’s lying in state has entered its first full day, with mourners braving lengthy queues for the chance to file past the late monarch’s coffin.

There are predictions the line could stretch for up to 10 miles with waits of up to 30 hours to get into Westminster Hall.

However, as of 5am on Thursday it was 2.1 miles long – stretching to Southwark Bridge.

Sky News reporter Olive Enokido-Lineham waited six hours to enter the palace, suggesting wait times are much shorter than initially feared.

Police officers, volunteers, and stewards are managing the queue, while toilets and water fountains are being provided at various points along the route.

People waiting in line are being given a coloured and numbered wristband to prevent any queue jumping, and to allow them to leave for short periods, such as to get food.

King Charles has returned to his Highgrove home in Gloucestershire. He will have a private day of reflection and is not expected to attend any public events.

In the detailed planning for the aftermath of the Queen’s death – known as Operation London Bridge – a day was set aside at this point for the new monarch to have some time away from public duties.

Elsewhere, King’s Counsel will take part in wreath laying after the death of the Queen.

Senior barristers, now known as KCs instead of QCs after the proclamation of the King, have been invited to dress in robes and court mourning attire.

They will then gather outside the Old Bailey before walking to Gray’s Inn Chapel for the ceremony.

Meanwhile, Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, has postponed a celebratory event she was due to attend as a woman of honour, as well as the release of her podcast, out of respect for the Queen.

Meghan was selected alongside other high-profile women, including Hillary Clinton, Oprah Winfrey and Malala, as part of US outlet Variety’s Power of Women event.

The honourees will feature on the cover of the publication’s Power of Women special edition, with an event taking place on Wednesday, 28 September.

“Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex, was chosen as one of one of this year’s stellar honorees,” Variety said.

“The Duchess’ cover will be postponed to a later date, out of respect for the recent passing of Queen Elizabeth II.

“Similarly, she will not attend the Power of Women event in Los Angeles later this month.”

Meghan’s podcast, Archetypes, will also not be released during the duration of the mourning period for the Queen.

Among her fellow honourees was US talk show host Oprah Winfrey, who conducted the explosive interview with Harry and Meghan in March 2021.

Speaking recently at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), Winfrey said she hoped the Queen’s death will allow the Royal Family to come together and provide “an opportunity for peacemaking”.

The royals were reunited as they joined a procession behind the Queen as she left Buckingham Palace for the final time on Wednesday.

King Charles, the Prince of Wales and Duke of Sussex accompanied the monarch on the journey to Westminster Hall for her lying in state. The Queen Consort, Princess of Wales, Countess of Wessex and Duchess of Sussex travelled by car.

Winners of Love Island 2022 crowned, with Michael Owen’s daughter finishing in second place | Ents & Arts News

Ekin-Su Culculoglu and Davide Sanclimenti have been crowned as this year’s winners of Love Island.

The 27-year-old Turkish actress from Essex and Italian business owner, also 27, won over fans with their fiery but passionate relationship that lasted most of the series.

They beat Gemma Owen, who is the daughter of former England footballer Michael Owen, and Luca Bish in the final two, while Indiyah Polack and Dami Hope finish third.

Tasha Ghouri, who was the show’s first deaf contestant, and Andrew Le Page finished in fourth place.

ITV this year scrapped the option for one of the winning couple to steal all of the prize money for themselves.

Ekin-Su and Davide arrived in the Love Island villa early on in the series as bombshells and despite initially being attracted to each other, they suffered a rocky relationship, with the Italian labelling Ekin-Su as “fake as Louis Vuitton from China”.

However, they were later inseparable and dubbed themselves the “Italian snack” and “Turkish delight”, eventually professing their love for each other.

When they were announced as the winners, Ekin-Su burst into tears and Davide gasped and said: “I can’t believe it.”

This year’s Love Island was hosted by Laura Whitmore.

The current series of Love Island has been a ratings success, securing its biggest launch episode since 2019.

ITV has also announced there will be two series of the show in 2023 – a winter series in South Africa and a summer series in Majorca.
