A solemn Meghan Markle watched as Elizabeth II’s coffin was placed on an altar while standing beside Kate, George and Charlotte before taking a seat in the second row next to Prince Harry.

The Duchess of Sussex, 41, walked into the historic church in a sombre procession behind the Queen’s coffin. In front of her was Kate, the two eldest Cambridge children, and Prince Edward and his wife, the Duchess of Wessex.

Inside the church, Meghan stood alongside the three Cambridges for several moments before taking a seat at the funeral next to Prince Harry.

The Duke of Sussex – who put aside his feud with his brother, Prince William, to walk alongside him behind the Queen’s coffin – was wearing a civilian suit rather than uniform due to no longer being a senior royal. 

Harry and Meghan are sitting on the second row, directly behind King Charles III, the Queen Consort and Princess Anne. 

The Duchess  paid tribute to the Queen by wearing a set of pearl and diamond earrings she was given by the monarch as a gift. She earlier this week wore the same pair for the funeral procession to Westminster Hall.

Harry and Meghan, who live in Montecito, California, have remained in the UK since the Queen’s death on September 8. They happened to be in the country for the WellChild awards when the news was announced.

The couple were without their children Archie, three, and Lilibet, 15 months, who are believed to have remained in California with Meghan’s mother Doria Ragland.
