Hidden Gems at the Queen's Funeral
By Almira Louise Martinez 20 Sep 2022 58

On September 8, the longest-reigning monarch halted due to the Queen’s passing. Hundreds of thousands of civilians paid their final respect at Westminster Abbey. Royalties were also present at the funeral to honor the majesty. In their peculiar ways, the female members of the royal family paid homage by wearing different accessories to remember her. 

On top of the list, Queen Consort Camilla arrived wearing her black dress with matching stockings and shoes. She also has a black fascinator embellished with flower appliqués and a netted veil. Apart from these, she also wore the diamond brooch gifted to her presumably, by the Queen when he married King Charles. 

Following this, the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan, showed respect by sporting a black dress with matching stockings, pointed-toe pumps, a wide-brim hat, and black gloves. As a subtle reference to the late monarch, the Duchess wore a gold bracelet and a pair of diamond-and-pearl stud earrings gifted when she had her first solo outing with the Queen back in 2018.

Aside from Meghan, Princess Kate, the Princess of Wales, was also seen using accessories to commemorate the Queen since she passed. At the funeral today, she used a four-strand Japanese pearl choker necklace with a diamond center that used to be in the Queen’s possessions. In previous events, the Princess donned different jewelry previously owned by the monarch while attending various gatherings this week. 

Wearing jewelry can symbolize the femininity of women and their social statuses. Through the years, Queen Elizabeth lent and gifted her female relatives jewelry to remember momentous events in their lives. With these little shiny pieces, the monarch hopes to remind her loved ones of the precious moments they have shared.
