Members of the British royal family found discreet ways to honor the Queen through clothing at the Queen’s funeral on Monday. Many women who were close to the queen wore jewelry and dresses that were either presented to her by the late emperor or designed to symbolize her presence.

Meghan Markle

According to Page Six, The Queen gave Meghan a pair of pearl and diamond drop earrings in 2018, which she wore to a funeral on Monday.

Britain’s jeweler Maxwell Stone previously told Page Six: “The royal tradition of wearing pearls for mourning dates back to the time of Queen Victoria, who was so overwhelmed with grief after the death of Prince Albert that she wore black for the rest of her life.” Wearing nothing but that.”

Meghan wore a Stella McCartney black cape. She wore the same in navy blue to celebrate the Queen’s 92nd birthday at the Royal Albert Hall in 2018.

Kate Middleton

According to the New York Post, the Duchess of Cornwall wore Queen Elizabeth’s pearls and a black Alexander McQueen coat to the funeral.

According to Page Six, Kate wore the same pearl earrings to Prince Philip’s funeral. The earrings were a gift from the Emperor of Bahrain for the Queen’s wedding in 1947.

Kate also wore a black veil in honor of the Queen.

Notably, she wore a Queen’s four-row pearl choker with a diamond clasp.

Camilla Parker Bowles

Queen Consort Camilla paid tribute to the Queen by wearing a Hesse Diamond Jubilee brooch.

The brooch is a heart shaped piece with the number 60 on it. According to the New York Post, it refers to the number of years in the reign of the Diamond Jubilee. Page Six reports that Camilla also carried a clutch from one of the Queen’s favorite labels, Launer.
