Meghan Markles subtle tribute to Queen at historic state funeral

Prince Harry’s wife Meghan Markle made a subtle tribute to the Queen with her choice of jewellery for the late monarch’s state funeral.

People came from far and wide to attend Queen’s Elizabeth’s funeral at Westminster Abbey – including world leaders such as Joe Biden and Justin Trudeau.

Harry and Meghan, who reside in America, travelled to the UK before the Queen’s passing and extended their trip as a result of her death, meaning they’ve been in the country for all of the monarch’s memorial services – including her funeral today.

Meghan was pictured travelling to the funeral at Westminster alongside her husband Harry, and wore an all-black ensemble for the sombre affair.

The Suits actress wore her dark tresses up in a low bun, perfectly showing off her pearl earrings that were a nod to the Queen.

Pearls are famously a symbol of mourning in the Royal Family.

Her choice of jewellery today comes after she made a similar sign of respect the late monarch by wearing a pair of earrings that she was gifted by her husband’s grandmother.

The pearl earrings were given to her shortly after she married Prince Harry in 2018. She wore the earrings for a solo engagement with the Queen in June of the same year.

Kate Middleton did the same with her jewellery choices as she wore a stunning Diamond and Pearl Leaf brooch which has previously belonged to the Queen.

Mum-of-three Kate first wore the stunning brooch back in 2017, during a visit to Belgium with her husband Prince William, 40, for the Commonwealth War Graves Commissions' Tyne Cot Cemetery.

Kate also wore it in 2018 for the annual Festival of Remembrance at Royal Albert Hall.

The brooch, which features a trio of pearls, was worn by Elizabeth II on her 73rd birthday in 1999, according to The Court Jeweller.

The pearl earrings Kate paired it with belonged to her late mother-in-law Princess Diana, who wore them regularly after being gifted them by jewellery firm Collingwood.

Kate again donned pearls for the Queen’s funeral today as she was pictured travelling to Westminster Abbey alongside her husband Prince William and their children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

While Kate made her way to Westminster Abbey as part of a procession of cars, other members of the family including King Charles, Prince William and Prince Harry joined the procession on-foot.

The brothers could be seen united in their grief, similar to last week’s display which saw the pair walk with solidarity as they guided the Queen’s coffin from Buckingham Palace to Westminster Hall.
