The Funeral of Queen Mary at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle on this day in 1953, following a lying-in-state at Westminster Hall, during which time 120,000 people filed past her coffin to pay their last respects. Royal Attendees included Queen Juliana and Prince Bernhard of The Netherlands, Crown Prince Olav of Norway (nephew), the entire British Royal Family, and the Queen (granddaughter), who paid her final respects by sprinkling earth three times from a silver bowl onto the coffin as the Archbishop of Canterbury declared her resurrection to eternal life with the words ‘Earth to Earth, Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dust,’ followed by a deep curtsey.

    a title to maybe grab folқ’s attention? I mean Funeral of Queen Mary,
    1953 | The Rߋyal Watchеr is kіnda vanilla. Yoս ᧐ught to peek at Yahoo’s home
    page and see how they write news heɑdlines to grab people to click.
    You might try adding a video or a related pic or two to
    grab readers interested about what you’ᴠe got to say.
