Windsor Castle will reopen to the public for the first time since the Queen's death, the Sky News reported.

The castle and St George's Chapel will open at 10am on Thursday (Sep 29), it said.

Entrance to the chapel is included in a ticket for Windsor Castle, which costs £26.50 for adults during the week and £28.50 on Saturdays. Children's tickets cost £14.50 during the week and £15.50 on Saturday.

The former monarch was buried with her husband, Prince Philip, and alongside the remains of her mother, father and sister in St George's Chapel following her state funeral on 19 September.

On Saturday (Sep 24), Buckingham Palace released a photo of the ledger stone that marks the spot where the family are interred.

It replaces a previous slab dedicated to George VI and the Queen Mother.

The fresh stone now reads "George VI 1895-1952" and "Elizabeth 1900-2002" followed by a metal Garter Star, and then "Elizabeth II 1926-2022" and "Philip 1921-2021".

This comes after the monarchy returned to royal duties after the period of royal mourning ended.
