The Duchess of Sussex paid tribute to Queen Elizabeth II at the late monarch's state funeral today.

Meghan, 41, wore a pair of pearl and diamond earrings, which were gifted to her by the Queen following her marriage to Prince Harry.

She wore a black caped dress by British designer, Stella McCartney. Meghan previously wore a similar dress by the designer in navy at a London concert held in honour of the Queen's 92nd birthday in 2018.

Meghan joined other senior members of the Royal Family as they entered Westminster Abbey including the Prince and Princess of Wales, along with their two eldest children, nine-year-old, Prince George, and seven-year-old, Princess Charlotte.

The Duchess of Sussex also put on long black gloves to leave Westminster Abbey along with the Queen Consort, the Princess of Wales, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and the Countess of Wessex.

She was first seen wearing the jewellery back in 2018 in Cheshire, during her first and only solo engagement with the late Queen.
