The Dean of Windsor has delivered the commendation earlier than the coffin was lowered into the royal vault.
Here is what he mentioned:
Go forth upon thy journey from this world, O Christian soul,
Within the title of God the Father Almighty who created thee;
Within the title of Jesus Christ who suffered for thee;
Within the title of the Holy Spirit who strengtheneth thee;
Could thy portion at the present time be in peace,
and thy dwelling within the heavenly Jerusalem. Amen.
