The mother-of-three looked elegant in the outfit which she paired with a statement pearl necklace and matching pearl drop earrings. Her choice of necklace is a sweet nod to the monarch and Philip’s 73-year marriage. Kate wore the piece, which is borrowed from the Queen, to an official dinner in 2017 to celebrate the royal couple’s 70th wedding anniversary.
Both she and William wore black face masks as they were driven to the funeral to remember the life of the Queen’s “strength and stay”.
Kate, 39, put a brave face as she arrived without William to St George’s Chapel on the grounds of Windsor Castle.
The couple will part ways as Prince William participated in the procession from the castle to the chapel.
Prince Philip passed away peacefully on the morning of Friday, April 9 aged 99.
Royal fans have been quick to praise Kate, who will one day become Queen when William ascends the throne.
The Duchess and the Queen’s husband shared a sweet link as Kate participated in the Duke of Edinburgh Award, which was spearheaded by Philip, as a young girl.
Following the death of Philip, Prince William released a statement which read: “Catherine and I will continue to do what he would have wanted and will support The Queen in the years ahead.”
