Kate’s moving tribute to Diana and the Queen with jewellery at Philip’s funeral

Kate Middleton subtly honoured the Queen and her mother-in-law, Princess Diana, with her choice of mourning wear at the funeral of Prince Philip.

The Duchess of Cambridge chose to wear Her Majesty’s pearl choker, which was previously lent to Diana.

Queen Elizabeth II often wore the necklace during the 1980s, and once leant the four-strand pearl choker to the People’s Princess for a state banquet in 1982.

She teamed the stunning jewellery along with an all-black-outfit, a colour that is true to Royal tradition, a netted hat and a black face mask.

Kate was pictured next to her husband, Prince William, as the pair were driven into Windsor Castle.

Ahead of them, Prince Charles and Camilla, who are just among 30 Royals who will attend, were seen at Windsor.

As the Queen’s consort, Philip was entitled to a full state funeral but in line with his "no fuss" wishes, he will instead have a ceremonial service.

Prince Philip's funeral is expected to begin at 3pm after a nationwide minute's silence.

Three minutes later, the Queen will have a "moment of reflection" to look at her husband’s coffin from her car before it is taken by Land Rover to St George's Chapel.

Prince Philip's three sons, Prince Charles, Prince Edward and Prince Andrew will walk next to their father, with his grandsons, Prince Harry, Prince William and Peter Philips behind.

No royals will provide a eulogy during the service, but several have already paid their respects with online tributes.

A teary eyed Prince Charles described Philip as his "dear Papa," while Prince William said he would treasure and never take for granted the memories his own children had with Philip.

Prince Harry also issued a heartfelt tribute, calling him a "legend of banter," and "master" of the barbecue."
