Queen Elizabeth’s eight grandchildren

For the first time in the history of the Queen’s royal family, her eight grandchildren held vigil over the coffin that housed her remains at the Westminster Hall on Sunday.

They eight grandchildren; Peter Phillips, Zara Tindall, Prince William, Prince Harry, Princess Beatrice, Princess Eugenie, Lady Louise Windsor and James, Viscount Severn, had answered the call of King Charles III to honour the Queen alongside him in the 15-minute vigil having the remains of the Queen cladded in a coffin draped with the Royal Standard and has the Imperial State Crown, the Orb and the Sceptre lying on top of it.

“You were our matriarch, our guide, our loving hand on our backs leading us through this world”, the grandchildren mourned.

“You taught us so much and we will cherish those lessons and memories forever. For now dear grannie, all we want to say is thank you”.

“You, being you, will never know the impact you have had on our family and so many people around the world.

“The world mourns you and the tributes would really make you smile. They are all too true of the remarkable leader you are.”

 We are so happy you’re back with Grandpa and our dear Uncle Charles, the King, will continue to lead in your example as he too has dedicated his life to service.

“Thank you for making us laugh, for including us, for picking heather and raspberries, for marching soldiers, for our teas, for comfort, for joy.

Rachel McRady‍ of ET News reports that the new Prince of Wales stood at the queen’s head while the Duke of Sussex stood at her feet. William was flanked by Princess Anne’s children, Zara Tindall and Peter Phillips, while Harry was flanked by Prince Andrew’s daughters, Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie, with Prince Edward’s children, Lady Louise Windsor and James, Viscount Severn, at the middle of the coffin.

This comes after the late British monarch’s four children – King Charles III, Princess Anne, Prince Andre and Prince Edward – all stood at her coffin on Friday.

RazorTimes recalls that the queen died on September 8, 2022 at age 96 at her summer estate in the Scottish highlands,

The outlined burial program, according to the US Police, has been the most challenging duty in the recent years considering the mammoth crowd of dignitaries flocking to the Queen’s land.

To avoid discomfort, rules are that President Biden of United States only will ride in his car, all other Presidents and dignitaries will have to share buses.

The public has a chance to view the closed coffin in person until 6.30 a.m. on Monday, when the hall will close in preparations for the State Funerial later that morning.
