Queen Elizabeth II’s coffin has been lowered into the Royal Vault at St. George’s Chapel following a committal service. 

The proceedings began at Westminster Abbey, where a small ceremony was held for members of the royal family and other dignitaries.

After that, a 25-mile funeral procession carried the Queen’s remains to her final resting place at Windsor Castle, with thousands of Brits lining the streets to pay their respects.

“In the midst of our rapidly changing and frequently troubled world, her calm and dignified presence has given us confidence to face the future, as she did, with courage and with hope.” Said the Dean of Windsor while opening Queen Elizabeth II’s committal service.

A private burial service will be held for the family later Monday. Queen Elizabeth II, Britain’s longest-reigning monarch, died on September 8 at the age of 96, prompting an outpouring of grief across the UK and around the world.
