During the farewell ceremony to Queen Elizabeth II, the new monarch of the United Kingdom, King Charles III, left a touching note on his mother’s casket.
King Charles III, 73, designed a wreath of blossoms to honor Queen Elizabeth II. During the wedding between Prince Philip and Queen Elizabeth, blossoms were the dominant flower of the ceremony.
What did King Charles III write to Queen Elizabeth II?
Charles left a flower wreath and a note on the Queen’s casket.
The note read: “In loving and devoted memory. Charles R.”
Charles doesn’t have a second or last name that begins with the letter R. However, it is a way to call someone King or Queen.
The letter R stands for rex, the Latin word for king. However, queens can sign with an R too. The Latin translation for a queen is “regina”.
Charles left the flowers before the procession from Westminster Hall to Westminster Abbey began.
Who attended the Queen’s farewell?
Reports illustrate that more than 500 political figures from all over the world attended Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral mass.
President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden attended the ceremony. Prince Harry, Prince William, and King Charles III led the procession before the mass took place.
Even not working royals such as Meghan Markle, Zara Tindall, and Peter Phillips attended the mass.
Queen Elizabeth II died on September 8, 2022, after 70 years of reign. She was the longest monarch in British history, and she was 96 years old.
