The Queen's coffin has been buried in the King George VI memorial chapel inside St George's Chapel, and as part of a standard ticket to view the castle, entrance to the chapel will be granted.

The King George VI memorial chapel is an annex to the main chapel and was added to the north side, behind the North Quire Aisle in 1969.

Her Majesty has been laid to rest 

Queen Elizabeth II's father, King George VI, and her mother Queen Elizabeth are buried in the memorial chapel – hence the name. Her Majesty's sister Princess Margaret's ashes are in the chapel too.

A special black stone is set into the floor, with the Queen's name now added with her year of birth and year of death.

St George’s Chapel has also been the location for happy memories within the royal family, including the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in 2018 and Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbanks' 2019 nuptials. King Charles III and Queen Consort Camilla were also married in the chapel.

The chapel is now open 

Adult tickets for Windsor Castle admission are £26.50-£28.50, while children's tickets are priced between £14.50-£15.50. Under fives can enter the royal residence for free.

Visitors will not be able to see the Queen's Platinum Jubilee display when they come as the exhibit has now closed in light of the monarch's sad death on 8 September.

Other royal residences once belonging to the Queen have now reopened including parts of Buckingham Palace and the Palace of Holyrood.
