In loving memory. The Royal Family shared a stunning retrospective photo of Queen Elizabeth II to mark her official funeral on Monday, September 19th.
“Let the flights of angels sing to your rest” The official twitter of the royal family signed the picture late monarch walking up a hill in the countryside. “In memory of Her Majesty the Queen. 1926 – 2022″.
The first part of the message is a quote from act 5, scene 2 Hamlet during which Horatio holds the dying Hamlet in his arms and says: “Now the noble heart will break. Good night, dear prince, and flocks of angels sing for you to rest.
A memorable line, which is often associated with the death of a respected person, is also mentioned in King Charles IIIthe first address after the death of his mother. The Queen died at the age of 96 on September 8 at her estate in Balmoral Castle, Scotland.
Later that week, Charles, 73, paid a heartfelt tribute to the late ruler, who served the crown for 70 years until her passing.
“We owe a mother as much as any family can have: for her love, affection, guidance, understanding and example. To my dear mother, as you embark on your last great journey to join my dear late father, I just want to say this: “Thank you,” said the King, officially known as the Prince of Wales, on September 9th. “Thank you for your love and dedication to our family and the family of nations that you have served so diligently all these years.”
He concluded by saying, “May ‘the flights of angels sing you to your rest’.”
The poignant message and angelic photograph of the Queen were released shortly after the Elizabeth family said goodbye during a private service at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle on Monday evening. The longest-reigning monarch was then buried alongside her late husband, Prince Philip, in the family vault on the grounds.
