All british royals are buried at the Frogmore Burial Ground. When King George VI died a special chapel was created in St Georges Chapel. He &, eventually, the Queen Mother are buried there. Princess Margarets ashes were interred in the crypt with her parents.
I assume that when the Queen & Prince Phillip pass over they will be buried in St Georges Chapel as all previous sovereigns from Edward VII and their consorts have been.
Everything I write here is my opinion and I mean no offence by it.
The Riddarholms Church in Stockholm
From 1300, it used to be the burial place for Swedish nobles – from 1634 it is one of the two burial places of the Swedish royals. The last royal to be buried here was King Gustav V in 1950, since that the Royal Cemetery at Haga has been used.
The church is still in function as a grave holder and memorial church, but foremost as the church for the highest order in Sweden – the Order of the Seraphim. The walls are covered with the shields of numerous knights through the years, from past to present. When a knight of the Order of the Seraphim passes away, his/her shield is mounted in the church, marked with the name of the grant of it and the date of the death. On the day of the funeral for the knight, the traditional Seraphim toll of the bells takes place.
The Royal Cemetery
In the early 1900’s, Crown Princess Margaretha wanted a less dark and “heavy” place than an old church for the Swedish royals eternal rest – so she initiated the Royal Cemetery at Haga, a wonderful area of beautiful parkland on a little islet outside Stockholm. The Royal Cemetery has been used as the royal burial place ever since it was created.

I declare before you all that my whole life, whether it be long or short, shall be devoted to your service and the service of our great imperial family to which we all belong. HRH Princess Elizabeth, Cape Town, 21st April 1947
Where exactly is the crypt in the Cathedral of Our Lady in Luxembourg? Is it 'downstairs' like in Delft? And, are there large stairs (if it is downstairs) like in Delft where we see the coffin being brought to the crypt, or are the stairs 'hidden' (in the back or another place)?
I was wondering, have there been any photo's taken of the resting place of S.A.R. La Grande-Duchesse Josephine-Charlotte? Also, are there floorplans of the crypts? I have seen one of the Oranje-Nassau crypt in Delft, but are there any others? Thanks.
