The tombstone for Queen Elizabeth II was officially unveiled on Saturday with a photo released by Buckingham Palace, five days after the queen was buried at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.
Near the memorial to George VI, the father of Elizabeth II who died in 1952, on the tombstone is inscribed, as before, the names of the Queen’s parents, the names of the King and her husband Philip.
The slab, photos of which have previously appeared on social media, is made of hand-carved Belgian black marble, and inlaid with copper letters, “to harmonize with the stone previously installed in the chapel,” according to Buckingham Palace.
About a week after the funeral
Elizabeth II died on September 8 at the age of 96, after more than 70 years of rule, a record in the United Kingdom, and Elizabeth II was buried on Monday during a lavish state funeral.
She now rests in St. George’s Chapel, where the ashes of her sister Margaret lie, as well as the coffins of her parents and husband.
On Friday, the palace released a picture of King Charles at work. Next to it is the famous red box containing official documents.
