More precisely at the memorial to George VI, father of Elizabeth II, who died in 1952, the new stone bears, as before, the names of the Queen’s parents – the previous King and Queen Mother Elizabeth (1900-2002) – and now the sovereign Monday and her husband Philip (1921-2021 ) was buried.
According to Buckingham Palace, the slab, pictured previously on social media, is made of hand-carved Belgian black marble, inlaid with brass lettering, “to coordinate with the stone previously installed in the chapel.”
Elizabeth II, who died on September 8 at the age of 96 after ruling the United Kingdom for more than 70 years, was buried in a lavish state funeral on Monday.
She now rests in the chapel of Saint-Georges, where, along with the coffins of her parents and her husband, lie the ashes of her sister Margaret.
On Friday, the palace published a photo of King Charles at work, with the famous red box used for the communication of official documents.
