Princess Elizabeth, daughter of King Charles I of England, lies buried in Newport Church, in the Isle of Wight. During the time of her father’s trouble, she was a prisoner in Carisbrook Castle, in the same beautiful island. While there she had a long spell of sickness. She was found one day dead in her bed with her Bible open before her and her finger resting on these words, “Come unto me all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”
A monument in Newport, erected by Queen Victoria, represents the young princess with her head bowed in death, and her hand resting on a marble book before her, her finger pointing to the words.
