The Queen has been laid in her final resting place beside her husband following a private service at Windsor Castle.

She was buried beneath the King George VI Memorial Chapel on Monday evening after members of the royal family said their last goodbyes.

Its walls were lit up by dazzling orange rays as the sun set in concert with the closing stages of what Charles called his mother’s ‘last, great journey’.

A small crowd had gathered outside the castle gates to pay respects as the service, conducted by the Dean of Windsor, got underway at 7.30pm.

The intimate ceremony stood in stark contrast to the monarch’s state funeral, believed to be the most widely watched ceremony of its kind in history.

The monarch’s coffin was last seen by the world earlier on Monday at the Committal Service at St George’s Chapel, of which the King George VI Chapel is an annexe.

It was then lowered into the Royal Vault, where Prince Philip was laid to rest last year, joining past monarchs including King George III, IV, and V as well as William IV.

But Elizabeth II was then relocated to the annexe which she commissioned after her father’s death and where he was relocated upon its completion seven years later..

It is also the burial place of her mother Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon and sister Princess Margaret, who both died in 2002.

The Duke of Edinburgh’s coffin was moved with her so she could rest beside her husband of 73 years, whom she described as ‘my strength and stay’.

Palace officials shared a poignant picture of the five late royals posing together before George VI’s death.

Her coffin was interred with the Grenadier Guards’ Queen’s Company Camp Colour, which was placed on top by her son at the end of the committal service.

The Colour is a smaller version of the Royal Standard of the Regiment, which served as the Queen’s Company Colour throughout her reign.

Monday’s service marked the end of a momentous 10-day period of processions across the country which King Charles III described as his mother’s ‘last great journey’.
