Queen Elizabeth II will be interred at Windsor Castle’s King George VI Memorial Chapel, with the body of her late husband, Prince Philip, being moved to join her. 

The burial is expected to take place after Elizabeth’s state funeral at Westminster Abbey.

Her parents, King George VI, who died in 1952, and Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother, who died in 2002, as well as her sister, Princess Margaret, who also died in 2002, have each been laid to rest at King George VI Memorial Chapel. 

The remains of Prince Philip, who passed away at age 99 in April 2021, are still at the Royal Vault at St. George’s Chapel.

King George VI Memorial Chapel is part of St. George’s Chapel, the site of various royal burials.

Elizabeth died on Thursday at age 96 at Balmoral Castle in Scotland. 

“The Queen died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon,” the royal family tweeted of Her Majesty, the longest-reigning monarch in British history at 70 years on the throne. 

“The King and The Queen Consort will remain at Balmoral this evening and will return to London tomorrow.”

“The death of my beloved Mother, Her Majesty The Queen, is a moment of the greatest sadness for me and all members of my family,” read a statement posted to the royal family’s social media accounts.

“We mourn profoundly the passing of a cherished Sovereign and a much-loved Mother. I know her loss will be deeply felt throughout the country, the Realms and the Commonwealth, and by countless people around the world.
