“Here, in St George’s Chapel, where she so often worshiped, we are bound to call to mind someone whose uncomplicated yet profound Christian faith bore so much fruit,” the dean of Windsor, David Conner, said during the service. He paid tribute to her role in the nation, Commonwealth and world, but also to her “kindness, concern and reassuring care for her family and friends and neighbors.”
