Queen Elizabeth II is buried beside Prince Philip.

London, The Gulf Observer: In an emotional day for grieving members of the Royal Family, tens of thousands of people lined the streets to catch a glimpse of the procession carrying the Queen’s coffin and millions more watched on television around the world.

The Queen’s coffin left Westminster Hall on Monday morning, where the final members of the public had queued overnight to see the monarch lying in state, and was carried on a gun carriage to the abbey in a procession including the monarch’s children.

In a personal touch, the wreath adorning the Queen’s coffin had a handwritten note written by the King, which read: “In loving and devoted memory. Charles R.”

The wreath also included flowers requested by the King which were cut from the gardens of Buckingham Palace, Clarence House and Highgrove House.

George and Charlotte walk behind coffin

Inside Westminster Abbey, King Charles III and Camilla, the Queen Consort, walked immediately behind the coffin.

They were followed by the Princess Royal and her husband Vice Admiral Sir Timothy Laurence, the Duke of York, the Earl and Countess of Wessex, and the Prince and Princess of Wales.

Nine-year-old Prince George and Princess Charlotte, aged seven, accompanied their parents, followed by their uncle and aunt, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

Before the service, the Princess of Wales could be seen holding Charlotte’s hand, and giving her a reassuring touch on the shoulder.
