Following the pomp and ceremony of the state funeral in Westminster, attended by leaders from around the world, a more intimate burial service was held at St George's.

At the end of the service, the queen's coffin was lowered into the royal vault, the resting place of many previous monarchs.

King George III, IV and V, William IV and others rest under the chapel.

Last year, Prince Philip, wife of the queen, was also buried there.

Before that, King Charles stepped forward to place the queen's banner of the Monarch's Grenadier Guards order over her coffin.

The queen's coffin will be transferred to the King George VI Memorial Chapel, where it will join those of her parents, King George VI and Queen Elizabeth I, the Queen Mother.

Afterwards, the Lord Chamberlain, the highest official of the Royal House, broke Queen Elizabeth's staff of command and placed it on the coffin.

This ceremonial action of splitting the fine staff creates symmetry with the three Instruments of State that have been withdrawn, according to Buckingham Palace.

As the queen's coffin was lowered into the vault, the Dean of Windsor delivered a psalm, before the Garter Chief King of Arms pronounced the queen's names and titles.

Thus concluded the public ceremonies in her honor.

However, the vault will not be his final resting place.

A private burial service for the royal family is scheduled to take place on Monday night, where the queen will be transferred to the chapel of King George VI.

There the queen's coffin will join those of her parents, King George VI and Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother.

Prince Philip's coffin will also be moved, so that the queen can rest with her loving husband of 73 years.

Although the chapel is closed for Monday's private ceremony, it is normally open to the public, meaning Britons can visit the queen's final resting place and pay their respects.
