That is what I am afraid might have happened. There are claims that her remains were put with those of her sisters, which were enclosed in the wall of the crypt. There are some claims that she was buried at the convent in Marcigny where she retired but sadly, that convent was destroyed in the Revolution as well. The "necropsy of Chartres" lists her burial as in Caen under the inscription "Adela, Filia Regis" (Adela, daughter of the king) and I'm tempted to think it wouldn't be recorded incorrectly there. It would be amazing to find this inscription somewhere within the church in Caen, but her whereabouts, sadly, may remain unknown. Thank you so much for the information!

Edward Duke of Kent was the father of Queen Victoria. After he died, in Devon in January 1820, he was buried in St George's Chapel, Windsor.

His widow Victoria, the Queen's mother, survived him by forty one years and she too was buried in St George's Chapel. However, she had wanted to be buried in her brother Ernst's mausoleum in Coburg. He had died in 1844.

She was told that her remains must remain in England, so, in compensation, her nephew Albert, the Prince Consort, designed and had built a mausoleum very like the Duke of Coburg'sat Frogmore. It is on a rise, beside a lake. Both she and her husband were re-interred and placed there after Albert's death.

Speaking of the mausoleum of Victoria mother and father at Frogmore and also her own one where she and Albert are buried I read somewhere it is in despite need of repairs and that there is no family to fix it up and that you cant visit it any more why would the Royal family not keep up on repairs it isn't like they are broke

It has been suggested/reported that they will join King George VI, Queen Elizabeth, and Princess Margaret in the George VI Chapel. There is still room for four more coffins in the vault.

King Stephen,his wife Matilda of Boulogne and their son Eustace IV, Count of Boulogne were all buried at the Cluniac Faversham Abbey in Kent,their tombs were lost following the dissolution of Faversham Abbey in 1538.During an excavation of the site in 1964 the location of their burials was discovered but no remains were found,their were reports that the bones of Stephen,Matilda and Eustance were simply dumped in the nearby river following the dissolution of the abbey.

Elizabeth II and Philip will most likely be buried with her parents and sister in George VI Memorial Chapel. I can't imagine that Elizabeth would want to be buried somewhere else.

However i am not sure that Charles (III) and Camilla will take up the 2 remaining spaces. I think he may want to start a new tradition somewhere with Camilla and with William (V), Harry and their families.

They would have more room if they switched to cremation like Margaret did. But some religions are not in favor of cremation.

That's possible as that they were extremly close.
But it's also possible that he wants to be close to his sons and if there are no space for them unless they want to be creamted, they need to find a new arrangement, in St George's Chapel or somewhere else.

There is no room for further vaults in St George's.

I imagine Charles being buried in open air at Frogmore. In a biodegradable coffin.

He would be in good company. The last ones were Alexandra's husband Angus and Princess Alice before him.
