Duchess Kate Pays Sweet Tribute to the Queen as She Arrives At Prince Philip's Funeral

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrived together for Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh's funeral on Saturday at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle. 

Hello magazine shared a picture of the royal couple as they traveled by car to the funeral, which displayed Kate Middleton's sheer elegance. She wore a well-designed black dress for the ceremony paired with stunning jewelry, a veiled fascinator, and a headpiece.

Prince William dressed in a black suit with a white shirt and a back tie. The couple both completed their looks with black masks as they arrived for the service.

Middleton paid tribute to both the late Princess Diana and Queen Elizabeth by wearing the monarch's jewels for the Duke of Edinburgh's funeral.

The Duchess stepped out draped in the monarch's pearls paired with drop pearl earrings, both from the Queen's personal collection – with a black face covering and pillar-box hat with net and veil as she traveled to Windsor alongside her husband, the Duke of Cambridge, 38.

The 39-year-old wore the iconic Japanese Pearl Choker necklace. The four-strand necklace with a central diamond clasp was commissioned by the royal matriarch, made from pearls given to her by the Japanese government.

While the jewels belong to the Queen, they were famously worn by Middleton’s mother-in-law Princess Diana, who wore the necklace in 1982 in the Netherlands.

Following the announcement of the Duke's death, Middleton and Prince William paid a moving tribute to the royal consort on their website. The pair uploaded a black and white photo of Prince Philip, who died on April 9, at age 99, with the message: "HRH The Duke of Edinburgh. 1921-2021."

Ahead of his burial, his son Prince Edward viewed homages paid to his father with his wife Sophie and their daughter Lady Louise. His Royal Highness' funeral site has been decorated with flowers and cards.

The Queen and the Duke’s youngest son, Prince Edward, 57, and the Countess of Wessex were visibly moved by the number of handmade letters and bouquets of mourning. The Countess knelt to read cards laying on the grass at St. George’s Chapel.
