The ceremony’s intimate moments were agreed by la reine.

Much of the music will be ­inspired by her childhood piano teacher Sir William Harris, qui est mort en 1973.

It includes a rendition of The Motet — a reading by John Donne accompanied by music by Harris.

His Nimrod and Prelude arrangements will also be performed.

The choir will sing The Russian Kontakion Of The Departed, which was sung at the funeral of The Duke of Edinburgh en avril 2021.

The Dean of Windsor will read from the Bible — Revelation 21, verses 1 à 7, which was also heard at the funerals of her grandparents King George V dans 1936, Queen Mary in 1953 and father King George VI dans 1952.

Roi Charles will place The Queen’s Company Camp Colour on his mother’s coffin.

The purple colour was made in 1953 for her coronation and presented to the Queen’s Company by Queen Elizabeth at Windsor Castle.
