The Princess of Wales came for the Queen’s burial with her kids, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, looking stunning.
Kate, 40, wore an immaculate black attire as she joined senior members of the Royal Family at Westminster Abbey to pay tribute to the Queen.
In a moving honor to the Queen, the Princess wore drop earrings and a triple-string pearl choker from Her Majesty’s personal jewelry collection.
The royal mother-of-two arrived at Westminster Abbey hand-in-hand with her daughter Princess Charlotte, seven, who walked behind their great-coffin grandmother’s with her brother.
The couple are thought to have bribed the second-in-line after senior palace experts advised them that allowing him to attend the State burial would send a strong symbolic statement.
George is the second in line to the throne at the youthful age of nine, having recently conquered the daunting prospect of entering a new school.
With this in mind, advisors have urged that the people see the young Prince, who fondly calls the Queen ‘Gan Gan’ and is the Monarchy’s future.
It comes after they attended the burial of their great-grandfather, Prince Philip, last year, and will allow them to say their final goodbyes to Her Majesty, whom they lovingly referred to as ‘Gan Gan.’
It is the first time any of the Wales kids have been seen in public since her death.
Kate has been exceedingly busy, openly supporting her husband Prince William and, no doubt, assisting her kids in adjusting to life without their Gan-Gan.
The death of their great-grandmother, the Queen, will come as a shock to Prince George, nine, Princess Charlotte, seven, and Prince Louis, four, as they and their parents settle into a new existence at Adelaide Cottage on the grounds of Windsor Castle, where Her Majesty spent the most of the year.
Mia and Lena Tindall, two of the late Queen’s other great-grandchildren, were at Westminster Hall on Friday for her lying-in-state. They were in the gallery with their parents, Zara and Mike Tindall, while their grandmother, Princess Anne, stood silently before the Queen’s coffin with her three brothers.
Kate and The Queen had a particular bond and were frequently seen together in public, with the Princess of Wales dazzling the queen with her “down to earth demeanor.”
In May, Princess Diana’s author Andrew Morton stated that the Queen spent time fostering The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s bond after “made errors with Charles and Diana.”
The Queen was struck by Kate because she cherished and loved William for himself, not for his status. She devotes far more time to maintaining and cultivating William and Catherine’s relationship than she did to Charles and Diana’s. She made it plain she wasn’t going to commit the same error again.
After a while, everything that transpired in Kate and William’s relationship was extremely planned, quite thought through.
In the start, nobody in the royal household believed for a second that the university relationship with Catherine and William would last for any length of time after they graduated, like most college loves that crumble under the harsh scrutiny of jobs and location, he continued.
Hundreds of thousands of Britons have lined up to watch the Queen lie in state this week, as the official period of mourning comes to a close today.
People from all over the world expressed their condolences to the world’s longest-serving head of state, and well-wishers queued up to thirty hours to pay respect.
Commonwealth dignitaries, including Australia, New Zealand, and Canada, will join the Firm in mourning today, as will monarchs from throughout the world.
The Queen’s formal burial will be followed by a two-minute national silence as a fitting homage to an unparalleled reign, before she is put to rest alongside her late husband.
Cops have also been given a no-fly zone above London today, following ten days of grief.
In addition to hundreds of uniformed Metropolitan Police officers, plain-clothes police will be stationed among the throng to monitor potential threats.
Other armies are anticipated to be requested to contribute officers under the guise of “mutual help.”
The Queen’s Coffin was transported from Westminster Hall to the State Gun Carriage and then placed outside the building’s North Door today.
The procession then passed through Parliament Square, Broad Sanctuary, and the Sanctuary before arriving at Westminster Abbey shortly before 11 a.m.
The casket will be put on the State Gun Carriage outside the Abbey after the State Funeral Service concludes about lunchtime.
The parade will leave Hyde Park Corner at 12.15pm towards Wellington Arch.
Broad Sanctuary, Parliament Square (south and east sides), Parliament Street, Whitehall, Horse Guards including Horse Guards Arch, Horse Guards Road, The Mall, Queen’s Gardens (south and west sides), Constitution Hill, and Apsley Way will form the route from the Abbey.
The Queen’s coffin will be carried from the State Gun Carriage to the State Hearse at Wellington Arch just after 1pm, ahead of the journey to Windsor.
It will then travel from downtown London to Windsor along a path that the Palace has not revealed. The parade will begin just after 3 p.m. when the hearse arrives in Windsor, near Shaw Farm Gate on Albert Road.
The state hearse will join the procession at Shaw Farm Gate, which will have been arranged and in place, before proceeding to St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.
Albert Road, Long Walk, Cambridge Gate, Cambridge Drive, George IV Gate, Quadrangle (south and west sides), Engine Court, Norman Arch, Chapel Hill, Parade Ground, and Horseshoe Cloister Arch will be part of the parade route.
The procession will come to a stop just before 4 p.m. at the bottom of St George’s Chapel’s West Steps in Horseshoe Cloister. The casket will be carried up the steps into the chapel by the bearer party.
At 7.30 p.m., the Queen will be laid to rest at the King George VI Memorial Chapel at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.
