Death of Queen Elizabeth II

The state funeral has begun at Westminster Abbey Queen Elizabeth II: in the place where she was crowned she now solemnly says goodbye. The funeral has already been defined as the event of the century and brought together heads of state – from Biden to Mattarella – emperors and crowned heads. Of course, the entire royal family is present at the funeral ceremony, including Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle. The Duchess of Sussex looked flawless and understated in a bun and wide-brimmed hat.

Every detail of the royal family’s clothing for the funeral was planned and researched well in advance. Meghan Markle chose a black cape with wide sleeves, without a collar, long just below the knee. It is a dress from the British designer Stella McCartney already “tested”: it was worn, in blue, in 2018, before being removed from the court. As per protocol, the Duchess wore sheer stockings and black heeled shoes.

Finally, Meghan Markle wore pearl and diamond earrings as a final tribute to the sovereign. The pearls in fact, besides being considered mourning jewelry, were the favorite jewels of Elizabeth II. Her precious jewels were given to her by the queen herself: a way to keep her precious heritage alive even in her little symbols.

Meghan Markle’s gold bracelet

The Duchess also wore one of her favorite bracelets, the Love by Cartier: a rigid and discreet model, even if gold is by no means among the most suitable jewels for a funeral. The precious jewel costs 7,200 euros and is one of the most famous models of the high jewelery house. A detail chosen certainly not to go unnoticed …
