LONDON, United Kingdom- Queen Elizabeth II was laid to rest Monday, September 19, 2022, as hundreds of world leaders traveled to London and millions around the world watched a historic event not seen on such a grand scale since the last monarch died 70 years ago.

The queen was buried in a private funeral at Windsor Castle alongside her late husband, Prince Philip, who died last year, after she had lay in state for four days inside Westminster Hall and hundreds of thousands of people waited in line -- in some cases for hours and hours -- to pay tribute and walk past her casket.

Queen buried @ King George VI Memorial Chapel

"The queen was buried together with the duke of Edinburgh, at the King George VI Memorial Chapel," the royal family said in a statement.

The tiny King George VI Memorial Chapel houses the remains of the Queen’s father George VI, her mother the Queen Mother and sister Princess Margaret.

The queen's state funeral Monday began with a procession to Westminster Abbey and lasted for about an hour. After its conclusion, the queen's casket began a long procession that traveled through London and was met by thousands of mourners along the route. It ultimately reached the final destination at Windsor Castle early Monday afternoon.

World leaders attend funeral

Roughly 500 world leaders and dignitaries were estimated to be at Monday's funeral. In all, about 2,000 people attended inside Westminster Abbey and millions around the world watched the service live on television and Internet streams.

Governor John J. Rankin, CMG and Premier and Minister of Finance Dr the Honourable Natalio D. Wheatley (R7) attended the funeral on behalf of the [British] Virgin Islands.

Elizabeth II died on September 8, 2022, after spending 70 years on the British throne. Her coronation occurred in 1952 and she became Britain's longest-serving monarch. Upon her death, Prince Charles, 73, became the king and he later announced that he would take the name King Charles III. With the queen's death, Prince William became next in line to the throne. William, 40, is the king's first child with Princess Diana.

As queen of Britain, Elizabeth II also served as head of the Commonwealth, which includes 54 nations -- 14 of which count the monarch as their head of state.

    Andrew must have sunk when he saw our new Premier at Buckingham Palace with the King. Instead of being in the Palace, look where greed has brought him. Very, very, sad.

    The biggest devil ritual ever all symbolic. Ask yourself what a the symbols on those badges means, you better educate yourself people putting places on things is just to make the person who comes in second feel like a failure all by design. Of course I prime minister has to be a part of it because he also did the freemason pledge for power to control the people. All government does witch craft on the people. The king has a new book called the great reset go and read it as the usher in the New world order

    She was not buried next to her husband. She was buried near her father, mother and sister. Her husband's body will be exhumed later and buried next to the queen.

    Charles looks rather insecure. He knows what time it is.
