After her state funeral on Monday, Queen Elizabeth II was laid to rest in private burial ceremony attended by members of the Royal Family.
The late Monarch was buried beside her ‘strength and stay’, the Duke of Edinburgh, in St George’s Chapel.
Her final resting place has been marked with a simple ledger, which reunites her with her husband and parents.
George VI 1895-1952
Elizabeth II 1926 – 2022
In between the two couples’ names is a single metal Garter Star, which is the insignia of the Order of the Garter.
The new stone replaced the black stone slab, which had featured the names George VI and Elizabeth in gold lettering.
Buckingham Palace have released a photograph of the ledger stone which has been installed at the King George VI Memorial Chapel, following the internment of the late Queen Elizabeth II.

When Prince Philip died last year, his coffin was placed in the Royal Vault of St George’s. This meant it was ready to be moved to the memorial chapel when the Queen passed away.
The Queen’s sister, Princess Margaret, who passed in 2002, was cremated and her ashes were initially placed in the Royal Vault, before being moved to the memorial chapel with her parents’ coffins when the Queen Mother died just a few weeks later.
