Myko told Distractify: "The chapel has been the final resting place for a number of senior royals, including Henry VIII, Charles I, George III, but most significantly, the parents of Queen Elizabeth (King George VI and Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon) and her husband of over 70 years, Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh."

Operation London Bridge (a contingency plan following the queen's death) went into effect the moment Queen Elizabeth II died. Her first-born son, Charles, is now officially King Charles III. His wife Camilla is now the queen consort.
