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.”

Along The Mall, thousands of people have already lined the route along the barriers ahead of the procession, with some intrepid mourners even camping out in tents and sleeping bags in a bid to get a good spot.

Transport and travel issues on some trains into London on Monday morning mean thousands of mourners could miss the funeral due to rail disruption which has left them waiting for hours on stationary trains.

The funeral service – which will also be shown on large screens around the UK and in several cinemas – is set to draw billions of TV viewers across the globe. It is likely to become the world’s most watched broadcast of all time.

The funeral marks the climax of what is being regarded as the biggest security operation the UK has ever seen, surpassing the operation for the Platinum Jubilee weekend and the London 2012 Olympics, which saw up to 10,000 police officers on duty per day.

The funeral itself will be attended by more than 2,000 people, including royalty, world leaders, politicians and members of the royal household.

Poignantly the Queen was both married and crowned in Westminster Abbey. It is the first time a monarch’s funeral has been held there since 1760.

The abbey opened its door to the congregation for people to take their seats for the service at 8am.

The funeral began at 11am and ends at 11.55am when the Last Post will sound followed by a national two-minute silence.

The procession will then head to Wellington Arch at Hyde Park Corner, before the journey to Windsor.

A private committal service will then take place at St George’s Chapel, conducted by the Dean of Windsor, and attended by the King and members of the Royal Family.
