The globe was in sadness upon Queen Elizabeth’s passing. Even though not everyone believes themselves to be in favour of the monarchy, most people liked the late Queen. She ruled for more almost 70 years, and she and Prince Philip have since reconciled.
Speculation about the Queen’s cause of death started to circulate soon after she passed away at Balmoral. Even the claim that the late Queen had bone cancer was made by an insider, albeit Buckingham Palace has not confirmed it.
An intimate friend of Queen Elizabeth just shared new information regarding her final days in an interview with The Daily Beast.
Queen Elizabeth, who ruled for more than 70 years, passed away at the age of 96 on September 8, 2022.
Queen Elizabeth’s body was carried in procession to Wellington Arch following the State Funeral at Westminster Abbey.
The coffin was transported to Windsor from Wellington Arch. The hearse then proceeded in Procession along the Long Walk to St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle. There was another funeral ceremony in St. George’s Chapel.
During the funeral service at St. George’s Chapel, music was performed by the choir. Then, prior to the singing of the “final Hymn,” Queen Elizabeth’s imperial state crown, the orb, and the sceptre were taken from her coffin and put on the altar.
The Lord Chamberlain broke his Wand of Office and set it down before King Charles placed his mother’s casket with the Grenadier Guards’ Company Camp Colour.
While Her Majesty’s coffin was being lowered into the Royal Vault, the guests sang God Save The King. Charles started to cry but fought back the tears. Later that evening, only the immediate family members attended a modest, private funeral service that was held without any cameras.
Together with her parents, her sister Princess Margaret, and her husband, Phillip, the Queen is now interred at the King George VI Memorial Chapel at Windsor Castle.
Philip’s casket was buried beneath St. George’s Chapel in the royal crypt after his passing. A few weeks following the funeral, guests were once again asked to pay their respects at the King George VI Memorial Chapel, where he later transferred to be alongside Elizabeth.
According to AP, the burial and lying-in-state for Queen Elizabeth cost the British government an estimated $200 million. Since the state funeral for former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill in 1965, the funeral was the country’s first ever.
Thousands of people paid their respects at Westminster Hall in London before the funeral to witness Queen Elizabeth lie in state.
As part of a written declaration to Parliament, the expenditures were made public.
According to John Glen, chief secretary to the treasury, “the government’s priorities were that these events ran smoothly and with the appropriate level of dignity, while at all times ensuring the safety and security of the public.”
The details of Queen Elizabeth’s cause of death were kept a secret for weeks after the funeral. Although many people believed Her Majesty’s death certificate should be a subject of public record, The Daily Mail claimed that a Scottish government department had been accused of being secretive and thwarting legitimate attempts to obtain a copy.
The Daily Mail said that the National Records of Scotland (NRS) “has prohibited its staff from giving any facts connected to the Queen’s death on September 8 despite MailOnline and other media organisations’ attempts to gain the information from the NRS.
The registered cause of death was disclosed in late September. The only reason given for Queen Elizabeth’s passing was “old age,” with no other information.
Paul Lowe, the Chief Executive of the National Records of Scotland, acknowledged that her demise was reported on September 16 in Aberdeenshire.
