The Royal Family Releases Photo of Queen Elizabeth’s Ledger Stone, Which Marks Her Final Resting Place

Queen Elizabeth II has finally been laid to rest, and she's in good company, as she was interred next to her husband, Prince Philip, and near her parents, King George VI and Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother.

The moment was documented on the official royal family Instagram account, where they shared a photo of Her Royal Majesty's ledger stone (which, in case you were unaware, is an inscribed slab on the ground that marks the resting place of a major figure).

In the ledger stone photo, the names of Queen Elizabeth's parents are seen on the left, while the late monarch and her husband's names are etched on the right. Wreaths and bouquets of flowers are also seen laying around the room.

The caption read, “A photograph is released today of the ledger stone now installed at the King George VI Memorial Chapel, following the interment of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth.” They added, “The King George VI Memorial Chapel sits within the walls of St George’s Chapel, Windsor.”

This post follows the state funeral service that took place on Monday, September 19 at Westminster Abbey. For the event, all four of Queen Elizabeth's children, as well as all eight of her grandchildren, gathered in the church to honor the life of England's longest-reigning monarch.

A snap from the service was also shared to the royal family Instagram, where they said, “Thus it hath pleased Almighty God to take out of this transitory life unto His Divine Mercy the late Most High, Most Mighty, and Most Excellent Monarch, Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and of Her other Realms and Territories Queen, Head of the Commonwealth, Defender of the Faith, and Sovereign of the Most Noble Order of the Garter.”

Ahead of the queen's service, her body laid in state at Westminster Hall from September 14 to the 19th, where hundreds of thousands of people waited in line to pay their respects to Her Royal Majesty (including major figures like David Beckham).

Meanwhile, members of the queen's family also came to pay their respects by taking vigils next to her coffin.

Rest In Peace, Queen Elizabeth.
