Meghan Markles touching tribute to Queen with funeral jewellery choice

Meghan Markle has been spotted wearing pearls during the Queen's funeral service today (Monday, September 19) in a subtle tribute to the late monarch.

TV cameras picked up the jewellery on the Duchess of Sussex as she entered Westminster Abbey this morning, along with an all-black outfit.

Pearls are famously a symbol of mourning in the Royal Family.

In a similarly touching tribute, Meghan used her jewellery to give a nod to the late monarch at the service for the Queen at Westminster Hall last Wednesday (September 14).

She was sporting a pair of pearl and diamond drop earrings that the Queen gifted to her in 2018 in honour of their first royal outing together, shortly after she married Prince Harry.

According to PEOPLE, the Queen was famously a fan of pearl accessories. The ones she gave to the Duchess of Sussex appear to be a smaller version of her go-to pairs.

Discussing Meghan's look and earrings at last week's service, royal writer Rebecca English said: "Shoulders back, clutching her programme and bag, she was the most stylish and striking of them all."

Meghan has joined members of the Royal Family for the state funeral service in Westminster Abbey, commemorating the UK's longest-reigning monarch.

Earlier today the Queen's coffin was moved from Westminster Hall, where it had been lying-in-state, to the Abbey in a procession led by King Charles.

Following the service there will be a procession from the Abbey to Wellington Arch before the Queen's coffin is taken in a hearse to Windsor for the committal service at 4pm.

Her Majesty will then be buried in a private ceremony in Windsor Castle's King George VI Chapel at 7.30pm.

She will be reunited with the late Prince Philip as she is laid to rest.
