Queen Elizabeth II, the late monarch of the United Kingdom, has been laid to rest today in a state funeral.
World leaders made their appearance at Westminster Abbey on Monday bid a final goodbye to the woman who sat on the British throne for 70 years.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, U.S. President Joe Biden, and French President Emmanuel Macron were among the 2,000-strong crowd president for the funeral.
The Queen’s “unswerving commitment to a high calling over so many years” was recognized by David Hoyle, the dean of Westminster.
“Her late majesty famously declared on a 21st birthday broadcast that her whole life would be dedicated to serving the nation and Commonwealth,” Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury, said. “Rarely has such a promise been so well kept. Few leaders receive the outpouring of love that we have seen.”
Elizabeth will later be buried in the King George VI Memorial Chapel at Windsor Castle alongside her husband, Prince Philip, her parents and the ashes of her sister, Princess Margaret.
