Here’s Where And How You Can Visit The Queen’s Tomb

Queen Elizabeth II is finally laid to rest after a private burial in Windsor. Following her state funeral, which began at 11am on September 19, the coffin travelled in procession to Wellington Arch, behind Buckingham Palace, where it was taken to Windsor. Interred in King George VI Memorial Chapel, the deceased is now placed alongside her late husband, Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.
St George’s Chapel, founded in 1475 by King Edward III, has since become a central tourist attraction in the UK. And here’s all you need to know about taking a trip to the Queen’s Tomb in the Chapel.
