Buckingham Palace on Monday released a photograph of Queen Elizabeth II’s final resting place in St George’s Chapel after her burial in Windsor.

“A register stone has been installed at the King George VI Memorial Chapel, following the burial of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth”, the royal family wrote on Twitter.

The stone, made of Belgian black marble, is in the King George VI Memorial Chapel at St. George’s Chapel, Windsor. The brass lettering on the stone reads “George VI 1895-1952 / Elizabeth 1900-2002”, followed by a garter star and then “Elizabeth II 1926-2022 / Philip 1921-2021” on the bottom two lines.

The King George VI Memorial Chapel was built in 1969 after Queen Elizabeth II commissioned it to be the final resting place of her father, George VI. The Memorial Chapel is an attachment to St. George’s Chapel, which was commissioned by King Edward IV in 1475, but the chapel was completed by King Henry VIII in 1511.
