  • Queen Elizabeth II’s state funeral took place at Westminster Abbey on Monday.
  • The service contained several nods to the late monarch’s husband Prince Philip, who died in 2021.
  • The Queen will be laid to rest next to Philip at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle.

The state funeral of Queen Elizabeth II took place at Westminster Abbey in London on Monday, featuring several tributes to her late husband Prince Philip.

The Queen will be laid to rest next to Philip, who died in 2021, in St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle. They were married for 73 years, making their union the longest in royal history.

One of the hymns played at the late sovereign’s funeral service was “The Lord’s my Shepherd,” which was also sung at her wedding ceremony to Philip in 1947, according to a tweet from Westminster Abbey. The couple was married at the same church.

The flowers in the colorful wreath that was placed on top of the Queen’s coffin also contained references to her marriage at the request of her son King Charles III.

“At The King’s request, the wreath contains foliage of Rosemary, English Oak and Myrtle (cut from a plant grown from Myrtle in The Queen’s wedding bouquet) and flowers, in shades of gold, pink and deep burgundy, with touches of white, cut from the gardens of Royal Residences,” a spokesperson for the royal family tweeted Monday.

This isn’t the first reference to the Queen’s marriage to Philip since her death. According to Hello! Magazine, a wreath used in processions last week contained sweet peas from Balmoral Castle, the Scottish summer home where she died on September 8.

The outlet reported that sweet peas were not only one of the Queen’s favorite flowers but were also used in the wreath at the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral. The Queen reportedly picked out the flowers herself.
