As the world bid Queen Elizabeth II good night, it was totally a wow line of events for the late Queen, which came to a close Monday, September 19, 2022.
As a curtains drawn for a momentous day in UK history, here’s a roundup of what happened as Britain said goodbye to Queen Elizabeth II.
Queen Elizabeth II, Britain’s longest reigning monarch, has been buried in the King George VI Memorial Chapel in St George’s chapel, Windsor Castle, in a small private ceremony attended by family.
Earlier on Monday 2,000 guests including heads of state gathered in Westminster Abbey for her funeral.
The coffin was then taken to Wellington Arch in a procession featuring members of the armed forces and their bands. The Queen’s children, including King Charles III followed behind the coffin on its journey after it left the abbey. His sons, Prince William and Prince Harry joined them. The Queen’s coffin was later driven to Windsor Castle.
A service of committal was held at St George’s chapel, where the Queen’s coffin was lowered in to the royal vault and her instruments of rule were placed on the altar.
