Over the weekend, the British royal family bid a final farewell to Prince Philip, the late husband of Queen Elizabeth II.

In line with COVID-19 restrictions, the funeral procession was a lot smaller than it would be normally for a royal funeral, but that didn’t mean the royals looked any less elegant.

In particular, Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, looked flawless wearing an all-black ensemble by Roland Mouret which included her coat, mask and veiled fascinator.

The Duchess also wore jewels from the Queen’s personal collection, with some pieces coming from Bahrain.

The pearl drop earrings Kate wore were gifted to Her Majesty some 73 years ago as a wedding gift by the Hakim of Bahrain in 1947 when she and Prince Philip wed.

The Duchess of Cambridge also wore a four-row pearl choker, also from the Queen’s personal collection, which was gifted to the monarch by the Japanese government. Notably, both the necklace and the earrings were also previously loaned to the late Princess Diana.

Prince Philip’s funeral

Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions, the funeral for the Duke of Edinburgh was a toned-down affair, taking place within the grounds of Windsor Castle in the UK, with no members of the public present and only 30 members of close family and friends permitted in St George’s Chapel, where the service took place.

In line with social distancing requirements, Queen Elizabeth II sat alone as she bid a final farewell to her beloved husband of 73 years.

A poignant photo was shared to the British Royal Family Instagram of Her Majesty standing alone as her husband’s coffin was carried into the chapel.

Also in attendance at the funeral was Prince Charles, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward.

The service was lead by the dean of Windsor, David Conner, who praised the late Duke of Edinburgh’s “kindness, humour and humanity”. He also added that the entirety of the UK was “inspired by his unwavering loyalty to our Queen”.
