The first image of the Queen’s tombstone revealed

The late queen was buried for a few days. Now the image of the tombstone is being published for the first time. Not only the Queen’s name and the dates of her life are recorded.

A few days before Windsor Castle reopens to visitors, a photo of the new tombstone of Queen Elizabeth II and her immediate family has been published for the first time. The palace said the stone was handcrafted from Belgian black marble chiseled to match its predecessor.

Copper letters and numbers announce the life dates of the Queen, her parents, Queen Elizabeth (“Queen Mom”), King George VI, and her husband, Prince Philip. In the center is the coat of arms of the Order of the Lace, to which all four members of the royal family belonged. The photograph shows the tomb surrounded by wreaths in the small memorial chapel of King George VI in the grounds of Windsor Castle.

The royal residence reopened to visitors on September 29, who can also visit the tomb. The Queen died on September 8 at the age of 96 and was buried on September 19 at Windsor Castle. The urn of the Queen’s younger sister, Princess Margaret, is in the same side chapel that forms part of the large St. George’s Chapel.

Queen to get a statue

Demands for a statue of the late Queen Elizabeth II were raised in the British Parliament on Thursday. Conservative MP John Hayes has proposed the location of a previously empty base in Trafalgar Square in central London. The MP cited an “unusual response” from the people of the UK, saying it was a mixture of sadness and appreciation for a life of service to the country.

Relatives of the Queen held official dates for the first time since the state funeral on Monday. The Queen’s grandson Prince William and his wife Princess Kate thanked volunteers and staff at Windsor Castle, west London, for their dedication to the mourning ceremony. Princess Anne, the Queen’s only daughter, met members of the Navy who took part in the Queen’s funeral procession in Portsmouth Harbour, southern England. Anne’s brother Prince Edward traveled to Estonia where he thanked the British forces for their service to the Queen.
