Her burial (7/8)

List item

Mary died on 17 November 1558 at the age of forty-two of what historians believe to be uterine cancer. She was buried in Westminster Abbey, a royal church located in Westminster, London. The abbey has served for centuries as the site of many royal burials and weddings – including the 2011 marriage of Prince William and Catherine Middleton. In the abbey, Mary is buried beneath her sister, Elizabeth, where a latin inscription reads, “Partners both in throne and grave. Here rest we two sisters Mary and Elizabeth in the hope of one resurrection.”
