After the Queen Isabel was buried in a private service at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor, The Royal Family’s official Instagram account paid tribute to the monarch who died on September 8.
A never-before-seen photograph of the queen taken in 1971 at Balmoral, the place where she died at the age of 96, was published there. The image was accompanied with the message: “That flights of angels sing your rest. In loving memory of Her Majesty Her Queen. 1926-2022”.
The quote is from “Hamlet” by William Shakespeare, and was delivered by the king charles at the end of his first address to the nation the day after the queen’s death.
The photograph shows the late queen walking through the wild heaths of Scotland, not far from Balmoral Castle. Princess Eugenie had said: “I think my granny is happier there. I think she really loves the Highlands.”
The quote from Hamlet that accompanied the photograph is often used as a sign of respect when someone dies. The phrase, which is from the fifth act of scene 2, in which Hamlet is dying, was also used by Sir John Tavener in his “Song for Athena”, which was performed at the funeral of Diana, Princess of Wales, in 1997. .
The photograph is credited to Lord Lichfield, the queen’s cousin, who took the official photos of Charles’s wedding to Diana in 1981.
