One of the crucial hanging moments from Queen Elizabeth II’s committal service on Monday was the elimination of the Imperial State Crown, the orb and the sceptre from the Queen’s coffin. All three had been faraway from the monarch’s coffin forward of the ultimate hymn “Christ is product of positive basis” after which the Queen’s coffin was lowered to the Royal Vault to the lone piper’s lament at St George’s Chapel in Windsor.
The Crown Jeweller eliminated the Crown, orb and sceptre from the Queen’s coffin with the assistance of the Queen’s Bargemaster and Serjeants-at-Arms.

The Crown jeweller will finally return all the three to the Tower of London though the jeweller handed them to the Dean of Windsor who positioned them rigorously on the altar.
The committal service in St George’s Chapel included royals, prime ministers and former and present members of the queen’s family. The service drew to an finish with Queen Elizabeth’s coffin being lowered into the royal vault because the world bid goodbye to the nation’s longest-reigning monarch.
