Meghan Markle appeared to be wiping away a tear today as she watched Queen Elizabeth II’s coffin being carried from Westminster Abbey after a remarkable funeral attended by the greats and goodies from around the world. The Duchess of Sussex dabbed her cheek during the emotional moment as she stood next to Camilla, the Queen Consort, Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge and her children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
Earlier, Meghan, 41, walked into the abbey in a somber procession behind the Queen’s coffin. Before her stood Kate, Cambridge’s two eldest children, and Prince Edward with Sophie, the Countess of Wessex.

The Sussexes live in California but 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 stayed in California with Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland.

Today the UK’s main church, packed with 2,000 VIPs including Prime Ministers, Presidents and the Royal Family, was serene save for the sound of hymns and prayers at a funeral service Her Majesty had composed herself before she died.
The Queen made her last and saddest journey from Westminster Hall to the church where she married and was crowned as Britain mourned its longest-serving monarch and said goodbye to a beloved mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Her coffin was placed close to the altar with her crown, orb and scepter on top, surrounded by flowers chosen by the king from gardens she loved. A card in the flowers on top of the coffin read simply: ‘In loving and devoted memory. Karel R.’
