King Charles, Nov. 8, unveiled a new sculpture of his late mother, Queen Elizabeth II.

The statue now stands on the entrance to York’s cathedral, looking out over a square to be named in her honour.

The statue was commissioned to celebrate the late Queen’s platinum jubilee and was completed in August, one month before her death.

Standing at two metres tall, the sculpture weighs 1.1 tonnes and is made from lepine limestone from France.
