Meghan Markle attended the event in a black long dress, complementing the look with an elegant hat. Kate Middleton arrived with older children George and Charlotte – 4-year-old Louis stayed at home.

Princess Beatrice also came to say goodbye to the Queen. Throughout the week, the granddaughter of Elizabeth II dedicated touching lines to her deceased grandmother. “I know that you, the Universe, gave us a beautiful rainbow over the palace and castle on the Thursday when our beloved queen passed away. It’s so unexpected. It was necessary to give us signs earlier: send pigeons or release monarch butterflies six months earlier, or something else. Prepare us for this unprecedented heartbreak,” she wrote on social media.

Princes William and Harry also saw the Queen off.
