The Royal Family has confirmed Queen Elizabeth II’s burial with a stunning photo of the late Monarch and a touching tribute. Following her historic, lavish state funeral on September 19, the family issued a never before seen photo of Queen Elizabeth trapesing the wild heathlands, with a cream colored print kerchief in hair. The Instagram pic, which you can SEE HERE, showed the beloved Queen using a cane to leverage her steps as she made her way up the windy hill during her younger years. She wore a green jacket and carried a small tan purse and what appeared to be another light jacket on her arm. She also looked to be wearing leather gloves as she explored the majestic, misty hillside. “May flights of Angels sing thee to thy rest,” the Royal family captioned the photo post on Monday evening. “In loving memory of Her Majesty The Queen. 1926 – 2022.”
