Charlotte was seen outside Westminster Abbey with her brother and mother as they made their way into the funeral service.

Charlotte wasn't the only royal to honor the late monarch through her style. Her mother sported a stunning pearl necklace that once belonged to Elizabeth.

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, was also on hand for the services and paid tribute to the queen in her own way, donning diamond and pearl earrings she had received as a gift from the queen during their first official joint engagement in 2018. The former Meghan Markle also wore the earrings last week during a separate service honoring the queen.
