Joe Biden, Other World Leaders Bid Queen Elizabeth Final Goodbye


The coffin encasing the remains of Queen Elizabeth 11 was lowered into St George's Chapel vault to rest beside her beloved husband, Philip and parents.

Before the interment, her crown, orb and sceptre were removed from her Coffin to enable her remains 
descend into the grave 'as a simple Christian mortal and be reunited with the Windsors - husband, father, mother, and sister till eternity in the crypt at St George's Chapel to the
 lament of a lone piper as her 70-year reign came to an end.

 • Major Burns, the lone Piper

The Piper, Major Paul Burns, had served since 2021 and was included in the funeral arrangements on request of the Queen, according to Buckingham Palace.

Major Burns played the traditional Lament "sleep dearie, sleep" - the sound faded as he turned and walked down the internal steps of Westminster Abbey.

Also, two of the Queen's beloved pets - Muick and Sandy, awaited the procession carrying her coffin to St George's Chapel inside Windsor Castle.

One on a red lead and the other on a blue - both were escorted by pages in red tailcoats as the coffin of the beloved former owner passed by.
