Kate Middleton paid tribute to her husband, Prince William’s grandfather, Prince Philip. On Saturday, he attended the Duke of Edinburgh’s intimate funeral at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle in England.
The 39-year-old Duchess of Cambridge wore a fitted black wrap dress with a large bow, as well as a modest fascinating hat and a small veil.
He also sported a necklace that had deep symbolism. The accessory was a four-strand pearl necklace from Queen Elizabeth II’s personal collection, which the reigning monarch once loaned to the late Princess Diana. The necklace has been worn by both the queen and Diana at public events and was originally a gift from the Japanese government.
Kate is known to have worn tiaras and jewelry from both the queen and Diana in the past. Saturday’s display was a moving tribute to Queen Elizabeth II, who is grieving for the loss of Felipe, her husband of 73 years.
Kate and William drove to Windsor Castle together on Saturday and then parted ways when William took part in the procession behind his grandfather’s coffin.
The couple met inside the Chapel of St. George, where they sat together but separated from the rest of their relatives due to the COVID-19 protocol.
They were seen leaving the chapel with William’s estranged brother, Prince Harry, and all of them talking together in a rare moment.
