Meghan Markle was seen wiping away tears as she left Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral today.
The Duchess of Sussex arrived chic in a black Stella McCartney dress and a large black hat.
The high-necked dress retails for around €1,640. It was also significant in that it was a black version of the same dress she wore when she attended a concert celebrating the Queen’s 92nd birthday at the Royal Albert Hall in April 2018.
Meghan complemented the look with black tights, black suede pointed-toe pumps and black suede gloves. Meghan opted for an elegant wide-brimmed hat, which she paired with simple pearl jewellery, the stone traditionally associated with mourning.
After some controversy over Harry and Meghan holding hands as they exited Westminster Hall after the brief service at the start of the Queen’s funeral, the couple walked side by side but did not hold hands.
They sat directly behind Britain’s King Charles III during the ceremony. and his wife, overlooking the coffin, while William and Kate – for whom the abbey has happier memories than the place of their marriage more than a decade ago – sat across the aisle with their two children.
Britain’s Prince George also wiped away tears as he said his final farewell to his great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II.
The king-to-be and his sister, Princess Charlotte, bid farewell to their beloved “Gan Gan” as the youngest members of the royal family follow the queen’s coffin through Westminster Abbey.
The royal siblings, the Queen’s great-grandchildren, were among the 2,000 guests at her state funeral, joining their parents, world leaders and national figures from Britain.
