This afternoon, Queen Elizabeth II left Buckingham Palace for the last time. Her Majesty's coffin was transported on a Gun Carriage of The King's Troop Royal Horse Artillery from Buckingham Palace to Westminster Hall where she will lay-in-state until the early morning of her funeral.
The somber procession down The Mall was led by her children, King Charles III, Princess Royal, Duke of York and Earl of Wessex, her grandchildren the Prince of Wales, Duke of Sussex and Peter Philips, and other senior royals.
The Princess of Wales followed the procession in a car alongside the Queen Consort.
The Princess joined her husband's side inside Westminster Hall where senior royals stood in formation facing the coffin on its catafalque.
Dressed in a black Catherine Walker coat, Kate curtseyed the Queen's coffin before departing from Westminster Hall at the end of the service.
The Princess accessorized with pearl jewelry. Royal women often wear pearls when in mourning - a tradition that can be traced back to Queen Victoria. Kate wore the Collingwood pearl drop earrings, and she honored the late Queen by donning the Diamond and Pearl Leaf brooch which belonged to Her Majesty.
Kate first borrowed the piece during a trip to Belgium for the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Passchendaele.
Below is a photo of Queen Elizabeth II wearing the brooch in 1999 during a State Visit to South Korea.
Kate's hat appears to be the Jane Taylor Pillbox Halo in black with a birdcage veil.
The Prince and Princess of Wales will travel to Norfolk tomorrow to view flowers for the Queen left by well-wishers at her former home Sandringham’s Norwich Gates.
