Sombre Kate wears veil as she travels with Camilla in car behind Queen's coffin procession & Meghan follows with Sophie | The Sun
KATE Middleton and Camilla looked solemn as they departed Buckingham Palace together for the Queen's coffin procession.
The Queen Consort and Princess of Wales set off for Westminister Hall before Meghan Markle and Sophie Wessex who are travelling in a separate car.
Kate and Meghan both donned black veils for the sombre last journey of their grandmother-in-law.
The new Princess of Wales kept her head bowed to the ground while Meghan looked straight ahead alongside Sophie.
Meanwhile, a clearly emotional Camilla looked out at the thousands of mourners who gathered to pay their respects.
Prince William and Prince Harry but on a united front, walking alongside each other as they joined the sombre march with their close family.
The Queen’s grandsons followed their father King Charles who led Princess Anne, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward.
King Charles, the Prince of Wales and the Duke of Sussex appeared solemn as they walked behind the coffin.
The procession brought back sad memories of when they walked behind the coffin of their mother Diana, Princess of Wales when the brothers were just 15 and 12.
Harry, who spent a decade in the forces including two tours of duty to Afghanistan, was not in military uniform unlike William, because he is no longer a working royal.
The sun shone as the procession moved onto The Mall in central London and members of the crowd threw yellow roses into the road as the gun carriage passed them.
Now at Westminster, a 20-minute service will take place led by the Archbishop of Canterbury.
It comes as…
- The list of 500 world leaders and dignitaries attending the funeral has been revealed
- King Charles was pictured arriving at Buckingham Palace ahead of today's procession

The doors of Westminster Hall will open at 5pm allowing mourners to pass the Queen's coffin as she lies in state.

She was met at the Palace by the Royals – including Charles, Harry, Meghan, William and Kate.
The Queen remained in the Bow Room overnight before she lies in state from today in Westminster.
