Queen Elizabeth II has been buried alongside her late husband, the Duke of Edinburgh, at the King George VI memorial chapel following a private ceremony on Monday evening.

Earlier her coffin was lowered into the royal vault in St George’s Chapel, in the grounds of Windsor Castle.

That brought to an end the committal service concluding the public funeral events for the late monarch.

World dignitaries gathered together earlier in the day at the Westminster Abbey – the building in which the Queen was married, and crowned for her funeral service.

The funeral service was attended by around 2,000 people including many heads of state, some from Africa.

Following her interment, a period of royal mourning continues for another week – until the end of 26 September.
