The Queen's coffin was seen in public for the final time after Her Majesty was lowered into the Royal Vault ahead of a private burial alongside her late husband Prince Philip.

The monarch's funeral was attended by 2,000 people, and then she was moved through central London to Wellington Arch at Hyde Park Corner.

She arrived in Windsor shortly after 3pm.

Many flowers, thrown by well-wishers along the route, remained on the car's bonnet and roof.

The Committal Ceremony in St George's Chapel concluded just before 5pm.

The sceptre, orb and imperial state crown were removed from her coffin and it was lowered into the Royal Vault.

She was then buried alongside her beloved Prince Philip at a private ceremony later on Monday.
