It is with a heavy heart that we at Tree2mydoor must say goodbye to one of the greatest monarchs in British history. Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II will be laid to rest on Monday, September 19th and, in accordance with her wishes, her funeral will be a small, private affair. Out of respect for the Queen and her family, Tree2mydoor will be closed on Monday 19th September but will reopen as usual on Tuesday 20th September.
A Life in Nature
The Queen was well known for her love of nature and the great outdoors. She was a patron of the prestigious Royal Horticultural Show and attended the RHS Chelsea Flower Show more than 50 times. In 2017, she launched the Queens Green Canopy jubilee planting project; an initiative which encourages communities across Britain to plant trees in celebration of her 60 years on the throne. Over the past four years, thousands of people have taken part in this scheme and many more trees have been planted than there are people in Britain!
The Funeral Service
The funeral service will be held at St George's Chapel in Windsor Castle, whereby, The Dean of Windsor will give the address and the Archbishop of Canterbury will lead the prayers. Members of The Royal Family, close friends and palace staff will form the congregation.
The funeral cortege will travel through Windsor Town before arriving at Horseshoe Cloister where pallbearers from The Grenadier Guards - of which The Duke of Edinburgh was Colonel - will carry Her Majesty's coffin into St George's Chapel.
At 3pm, a national moment of silence will be observed throughout the UK and Commonwealth realms.
A Royal Send Off Fit For A Queen
On Monday we will remember her life and all she did for this country, both publicly and behind closed doors. Our thoughts are with her family during this difficult time.
Queen Elizabeth II 1927-2022.
