Members of the British royal family bid a final farewell to Princess Margaret at Windsor Castle on Friday, 50 years after her father, King George VI, was buried nearby.

The service at Saint George's Chapel was private, though a subdued crowd of nearly three thousand wellwishers had gathered outside the gates.

The principal mourners were Margaret's children, Viscount Linley and Lady Sarah Chatto, along with the queen, Prince Philip, Prince Charles and Margaret's former husband, the Earl of Snowdon.

The 101-year-old Queen Mother arrived in a people carrier and entered the building through a different entrance to the rest of her family.

Some 450 people, including more than 30 royals, attended the funeral service for the 71-year-old younger sister of Queen Elizabeth II.

The princess's rose-covered coffin was shrouded in her red, blue and gold-coloured personal standard during the funeral service.

Following cremation at nearby Slough Crematorium, Margaret's ashes were to be placed in the Royal Vault at Saint George's Chapel.
