The first picture of the new ledger stone marking Queen Elizabeth II‘s final resting place in Windsor was released by the Buckingham Palace on Saturday. The photograph of the ledger stone is now installed at the King George VI Memorial Chapel- which is located in the St Gorge’s Chapel in Windsor- after the monarch’s burial.
The black burial stone is engraved in memory of the Queen, her parents, and her late husband Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh. The stone replaces the previous slab which was dedicated to the Queen’s parents- George VI and the Queen Mother.
The stone now reads “George VI 1895-1952” and “Elizabeth 1900-2002” followed by a metal Garter Star, and then “Elizabeth II 1926-2022” and “Philip 1921-2021”.

The stone is surrounded by floral tributes marking the Queen’s death and made of hand-carved Belgian black marble with brass letter inlays which are similar to the the previous ledger stone, BBC reported.
