Harry & Meghan Markle at Queen Elizabeth’s Funeral

Harry walked behind the coffin alongside his brother William as the Queen’sfuneral procession passed through the streets of London yesterday.

He did not wear a military uniform to Queen Elizabeth’s state funeral, as hewas stripped of his military titles when he stepped down as a working memberof the Royal Family in 2020. At a vigil held by the late monarch’s eightgrandchildren, Harry was allowed to wear his military uniform by his father,King Charles.

Meghan Markle is said to have honored the Queen in a beautiful way during thestate funeral. She is said to have worn the earrings with pearls and diamondsthat the Queen gave her during their engagement together in 2018.

It has been a mourning tradition within the royal family since the time ofQueen Victoria to wear pearls.

In the infamous 2021 Oprah interview, Meghan spoke heartily about the Queenand how she had treated her during their engagement.

“The Queen, for example, has always been wonderful to me. I mean, we had oneof our first dates together,” Meghan said at the time.


“She asked me to go with her, and I went by train. And we had breakfasttogether that morning and she gave me a beautiful present and I just reallyenjoyed being in her company, and I know we were in the car – yes, she gave mea pair of beautiful pearl earrings and a matching necklace – and we sattogether in the car between appointments.”

Did Meghan Markle Break a Royal Tradition?

Meghan added: “And she has a blanket over her knees for warmth and it waschilly and she said Meghan come on and put the blanket over my knees too.”

Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle both followed royal protocol with theirattire. However, many royal fans reacted to the fact that Meghan seemed to bebreaking a certain royal tradition. It is said to be tradition – although notmandatory – for the royal women to wear a mourning veil. Kate, Camilla – theQueen Consort – and Princess Sophie were some of the women who wore such aveil, along with the traditional black hat.

However, Meghan Markle and the young Princess Charlotte decided not to wearthe veil.

Last Wednesday, Queen Elizabeth’s coffin was transported from BuckinghamPalace as she left her official home for the last time.

The journey to Westminster Hall passed Queen’s Gardens, The Mall, Horse Guardsand Horse Guards Arch, Whitehall, Parliament Street, Parliament Square and NewPalace Yard, with tens of thousands of people paying tribute to her along theway.

The Queen’s Last Voyage

The procession – which, according to The Guardian, was literally decades inthe making – saw the queen’s coffin placed on a gun-carriage and pulledthrough the center of the capital. The coach, The George Gun, was also usedfor the ceremonies when the Queen Mother and King George VI – Her Majesty’sparents – died.

King Charles walked behind the coffin alongside William and Harry, as did theQueen’s other children, Prince Andrew, Prince Edward and Princess Anne.Meanwhile, the Queen Consort, Kate Middleton, Sophie and Meghan Markletraveled by car.

Hundreds of thousands of people were allowed to say goodbye to the queen forthe last time. Westminster Hall was open 24 hours a day. Not everyone in linecould see the queen, however, because of how she lay in state.

The BBC reported that access to the back of the line would be closed early toensure anyone already waiting would have a chance to walk past the Queen’scasket.

Among the well-known royals who attended the funeral were King Felipe VI andQueen Letizia of Spain, King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima of theNetherlands, Emperor Naruhito and Empress Masako of Japan, and King Carl XVIGustaf and Queen Silvia of Sweden.

The coverage of the program Today The Queen’s funeral was led by presenterKarl Stefanovic, who decided to poke fun at Meghan after photos of her cryingwere published.

“We don’t know if it was real or not”

He said they were open to interpretation, meaning photos of Meghan wipingtears from her face may have been misleading.

“There are a lot of photos in circulation and interpretations of photos thatmay or may not be real,” Stefanovic said.

“There’s a few with Meghan, er, with a tear running down her face – apparently- and even one of Princess Charlotte that everyone said she was crying, and wejust don’t know if it was real or not.”
