Queen’s name inscribed on family chapel stone at Windsor
The Queen’s name has been added on a new ledger stone in the Windsor chapel where she was buried on Monday.
Queen Elizabeth II was buried alongside her late husband, Prince Philip, her parents and her sister Princess Margaret. All are buried in the George VI Memorial Chapel.
Buckingham Palace says the stone replaces a black slab naming George VI and Elizabeth, the Queen Mother.
The names of the Queen and Prince Philip are included under a metal star of the Order of the Garter.
The new stone set into the floor also includes the dates of when all four were born along with the year of their deaths.
The stone has “George VI 1895-1952” and “Elizabeth 1900-2002” written on it, followed by the metal star, and then “Elizabeth II 1926-2022” and “Philip 1921-2021”.
The Queen’s sister Princess Margaret, who died in 2002, is not mentioned on the stone, despite being in the chapel with her family.
