As members of the Royal Family arrive for the sombre occasion of Prince Philip’s funeral, we are able to see the sweet tributes they’ve made to the late Duke of Edinburgh through their fashion choices.

Here’s a look at what members of Royal Family are wearing, as they arrive at the ceremony.

The Queen

The Queen arrived at the funeral of her late husband Prince Philip wearing sombre black and a face mask.

Her Majesty partnered her outfit with pearl earrings and a pearl necklace.

On her black ensemble a large, stunning brooch can be seen sitting.

The brooch is named the Richmond brooch, and it was inherited from her grandmother, Queen Mary.

The brooch, made by Hunt and Roskell, was given to Mary as a wedding present in 1893 by the town of Richmond.

Kate Middleton

Captured on camera as she arrived at Windsor Castle beside her husband Prince William on Saturday, Kate could be seen wearing a four-strand pearl and diamond choker.

The choker is thought to be one which was made for Queen Elizabeth with pearls gifted to her by Japan. Her Majesty has worn the stunning piece on a number of occasions over the years.

Notably, it was also worn by Princess Diana in 1982. Kate has also been previously seen wearing the choker, including in 2017 when she attended the Queen and Prince Philip's 70th wedding celebrations at Windsor Castle.

Kate's choice of pearls is no accident, with the stones traditionally worn to funerals by the Royals. The Queen's great-great-grandmother Queen Victoria compared the creamy white stones to tears, and wore long strands of them for many years following the death of her husband Prince Albert.

Along with the choker, Kate's earrings also appeared to have been borrowed from the Queen.

She wore what appeared to be Queen Elizabeth's Bahrain pearl drop earrings.

Kate has worn these a number of times over the years, including in 2019 at a Remembrance Sunday service alongside Her Majesty.

As for her dress, at first glance this appeared to be the Roland Mouret dress Kate last wore in 2018 to attend the Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall.

Kate completed her outfit with a black fascinator.

Sophie, Countess of Wessex

Sophie, Countess of Wessex, arrived at Prince Philip's funeral wearing a black ensemble.

Sophie wore closed a coat with a high neckline and fitted bodice, with closed toe black high heel shoes and tights.

Princess Beatrice, 32, who is the daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah, Duchess of York, was pictured arriving at the ceremony alongside her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi .
