King George VI

The King's Tomb.

02 Jun 2012
King George VI and Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother

I've discovered there's a new star in that stellar building at Windsor, St George's Chapel.

'Where's the Queen Mother buried?' was the question most frequently asked by visitors until last year. But then Colin Firth won his Oscar, and now there's a new query - "Where's the King of 'The King's Speech'?" King George VI has finally become the most important occupant of the tomb that holds both his remains and those of his consort, Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother -- along with the ashes of Princess Margaret that were slipped inside after her cremation in February 2002.
