Days after the grand state funeral held at Westminster Abbey in London, attended by 2,000 guests, the remains of Queen Elizabeth II, who spent 70 years on the throne, now rest next to those of her father George VI, her mother Elizabeth, and her husband Philip at Windsor Castle.
Five days after receiving her burial, last September 19, the British royal house published on Saturday on its social networks the first image of the tomb of Elizabeth II surrounded by several wreaths.
The site will be open to visitors from September 29 and will become a must-see place for all United Kingdom residents and tourists from various parts of the world.
According to some local media, the price to visit the tomb of Elizabeth II will be €32, about $32.
The slab, which was previously dedicated to George VI and the Queen Mother, was replaced by one with an engraving in memory of Elizabeth II, her parents, and her husband, the Duke of Edinburgh, who died in April 2021, which also has a metal star of the Order of the Jerretera, considered the most important of chivalry in the United Kingdom.
The slab is made of Belgian black marble and is hand-carved. It also has brass inlays for the letters so they do not deteriorate over time and are less costly to maintain.
Elizabeth II died on September 8 at Balmoral Castle in Scotland. Her remains were later taken to London to receive a multitudinous farewell, which resulted in the cancellation of commercial, work, school, sports, and cultural activities.
After the monarch’s death, the throne passed to her eldest son Charles III. The change will come from the hand of several measures, among them, the replacement of banknotes and coins that had the face of Elizabeth II.
