Rome - The Queen Mother's remains were secretly taken from the Transylvanian Crypt at Windsor Castle and reburied at the Vatican.
The 2003 move saw her interred next to Hitler's Pope Pius XII with whom she had a son who became President George Bush Senior.
Details of the Rome reburial have only now come to light as Italian police prepare to open the sarcophagus of notorious Mafia boss Enrico De Pedis.
The Magliana gang crime lord was entombed close by 'for his own good' and was 'probably dead' at the time of internment.
Palace sources once admitted that De Pederastis, as he was commonly known, was often seen at Royal Ascot fondling the Old Queen Mum.
And giving her dubious racing tips 'about where to hide Shergar's remains'.
Her death in 2002 left debts of more than five million quid to bookies, royal bank Cuntts & Co and the 'Sicilian Gentlemen's Benevolent Society'.
Fortunately a hefty bung from the American Skull 'N' Bones Society paid for the Windsor Hellfire Chapel removal and reburial in Rome.
Prince Charles is 69.
