Memorial Chapel in Winsdor together with her beloved husband Prince Philip (✝99). Now the first picture of the tomb has been released.
On the official InstagramThe said photo was shared on the royal family’s account. On it, supporters can see the black tombstone embedded in the floor of the royal burial chamber, surrounded by a number of funeral wreaths. Engraved on the inscription are the names of the Queen and Prince Philip, as well as those of the former monarch’s parents: George VI. and Elizabeth. Also featured on the stone is a metal crest representing the Order of Garter to which all four belonged.
This order is the highest order of chivalry in the British honor system and the history dates back to the Middle Ages.
