Prince Philip's remains to be moved from Royal Vault for burial alongside Queen Elizabeth II

The Queen's state funeral will take place at Westminster Abbey but the exact location will be confirmed by Buckingham Palace, BBC wrote.

Westminster Abbey has been used in the past for the coronation of Kings and queens. It is where Queen Elizabeth II was crowned in 1953. She had earlier wedded Prince Philip at the same venerated venue in 1947.

The Royal Vault

According to the Mirror newspaper, the 200-year-old vault was built between 1810 and 1814.

It was a tomb built for the interment of Henry VI, Henry VII, and finally, Henry VIII in 1494 before it was abandoned for close to 200 years.

It was finally finished in 1863 and was once again used as a monument for Prince Albert; Queen Victoria's husband.

The Mirror also wrote that in the 19th and 20th centuries the vault was used to bury various less senior members of the Royal Family.

It is a 25-metres by seven-metre stone-lined room. Its walls are designed with shelves to hold coffins.

The vault is now lit with electric lights which were fitted in the 20th century. Oil-lamps were originally used.

It also has a slab close to its entrance where the body of a recently deceased member of the royal family is placed.

Prince Philip's body currently lies in the vault. However, once Queen Elizabeth's funeral is held they will be buried close to each other, just as they lived for 73 years.
