Meghan Markle looks downcast as she arrives at Queen’s funeral alongside Kate, George and Charlotte

Meghan Markle looked downcast as she made her way to Westminster Abbey to attend the state funeral of the late Queen Elizabeth II this morning.

The Duchess of Sussex, 41, was photographed travelling alongside Sophie, Countess of Wessex, with the pair making their way to Westminster via car.

Meghan looked glamorous in a black dress complete with cape sleeves, which she paired with tights and black high heels. The mum-of-two wore her hair up in a low bun with a wide brimmed black hat and small pearl earrings.

Sophie, 57, opted for a mid-length dress featured a pleated skirt and also wore her hair tied back in a bun with a black hat.


Meghan and Sophie travelled by car from Westminster Hall to Westminster Abbey while their husbands, Prince Harry, 38, and Prince Edward, 58, made their way to the venue on foot.

As part of the procession,Prince Harry andPrince William could be seen putting on a united front as they made their way to the Abbey on foot ahead of the following fleet of cars.

The pair were led by their fatherKing Charles as well as other royals including Peter Phillips,Princess Anne andPrince Andrew.

It marks the first time Meghan has attended a Royal funeral, as she was unable to be at the service for Prince Philip in 2021 as she was pregnant with her and Harry's second child at the time.

Following the Queen’s tragic passing on 8 September, members of the Royal Family have spent recent days paying their respect to the beloved monarch and have attended a series of ceremonies during the period of national mourning.

Last week, many royals gathered to attend the procession of the Queen’s coffin from Buckingham Palace to Westminster Hall where it spent four days lying-in-state.

During the service,the Duchess of Sussex could be seen comforting her husband Prince Harry, who appeared to lose composure during a particularly emotional moment.

According to one body language expert,the sweet moment showed the couple as being “emotionally impulsive” as they "broke ranks" in order to hold hands and express their desire to be connected to one another.

In an interview withThe Sun, Judi James said: "Meghan and Harry do seem to break rank to hold hands at the end of the service.

"It looks like an emotionally impulsive gesture, driven by a need to touch and unite again. But it's hard to not factor in how Harry was not allowed to appear in uniform like the others – apart from Andrew – so possibly felt less restriction in terms of sustaining royal protocol."
