Queen Elizabeth committed to earth


By Aminu Kutama

Queen Elizabeth II has been buried alongside her late husband, the Duke of Edinburgh, at the King George VI Memorial Chapel at Windsor Castle.

Her internment followed a glowing service led by the Royal Family, who sang hymns alongside other World leaders as they paid their final public respects to the Queen after a day of ceremonies in both London and Windsor.

The lowering into the Royal Vault of St George’s Chapel during a committal service in the afternoon was the last time the Queen’s coffin was seen by the public.

Later in the evening, at around 7.30pm, members of the Royal Family attended a small and private burial service at the memorial chapel where Elizabeth II was interred with her husband of nearly 74 years, away from the public view.

The longest-serving monarch in British history died at Balmoral, her Scottish Highland retreat, on September 8 after a year of declining health.

Her eldest son and successor, King Charles III, dressed in ceremonial military uniform, followed the solemn processions, alongside his three siblings ands members of the close family.
