CHILDREN AND grannies WALKED BEHIND THE COAT
After the death that shocked millions of people all over the country, the body of Queen Elizabeth II was brought to Buckingham Palace for the last time yesterday. The most emotional moments of the ceremonies that lasted for days were also experienced at that time. The body was then removed from Buckingham and taken to Westminster Hall. Meanwhile, the Queen’s four children, the succeeding King Charles III, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward, walked behind the coffin. The “offended brothers” William and Harry also accompanied their uncles and aunts. At this ceremony, it was seen that Andrew, who lost his dignity and titles due to scandals involving his name, and Prince Harry, who left the family voluntarily, were not wearing military uniforms.
TWO BRIDES ASKED AGAIN
Another curious detail of the ceremony was the female members of the family. In particular, the wife of the crown prince William, who was declared the Prince of Wales by King Charles III, Kate, the new Princess of Wales, and the Duchess of Sussex, the wife of Prince Harry Meghan Markle.
Although the family had gathered for a tragic event, as always, the clothing and jewelry of some family members attracted millions of curious glances. Apart from the ceremony, the clothes of the prominent family members were also discussed.

MEGHAN AND SOPHIE GO TO THE CEREMONY
Prince Harry’s wife, Meghan Markle, who was rumored not to attend the ceremonies a few days ago, shared the same vehicle with Prince Edward’s wife, Countess Sophie of Wessex.
WHAT THEY WEARED EVEN AT THE FUNERAL WAS A MATTER OF CURIOUS: Both women were dressed in black from head to toe. She had completed her looks with matching hats and, of course, precious jewellery. During that ceremony, which brought together the leading members of the British royal family, the jewels of these two young women were put on the table.
JEWELRY FROM THE QUEEN AND DIANA
The two women, who completed the parade under the excited gazes of the people gathered on both sides of the street where the cortege will pass, “sent greetings” to Queen Elizabeth II with their jewelry that day. Her mother-in-law, whom she never met with her clothes and jewelry from time to time Princess DianaReminiscent of , Kate Middleton completed her image in black with jewelry from both the Queen and Diana.
THESE EARRINGS TAKE MANY PEOPLE IN THE PAST
The earrings in Middleton’s ear, which left her hair open, were worn many times by Princess Diana years ago. Princess Diana wore these drop-shaped white earrings, sometimes with her tiara and sometimes with different outfits. Most importantly, these earrings were used to complete Diana’s “revenge dress”. This election of Middleton refreshed many people’s memories of what happened in 1994.
HE COMPLETED THE “REVENGE DRESS” WITH THESE EARRINGS: Now let’s remember why Diana’s dress is called the revenge dress. The calendars showed June 29, 1994. Diana was experiencing the lightness of ending her unhappy marriage of 11 years. And that evening she was going to attend an event organized by Vogue magazine at the Serpentine Gallery.
By a twist of fate… No one knew that morning that the crown prince of the British royal family would hear with their ears the confession that he had cheated on his wife. But in the evening, the unexpected development happened. Veteran journalist Jonathan Dimbley asked Prince Charles if he had ever cheated on his wife Diana. “No,” Charles replied at first. However, in the face of the journalist’s persistent question, he added that he “never cheated until their relationship reached the point where it was beyond repair”. Moreover, he did not show any signs of sadness or regret at this time.
DRESS OF REVENGE
Hours before this interview aired, Diana was also preparing for Vogue magazine’s party. She either knew what kind of statements her husband would make on the TV screens that night, or she trusted her intuition about it. As she was getting ready for the party, she made an unexpected change. She wanted to change the Valentino-designed outfit she was planning to wear that night. Instead, she wore a strapless mini black dress by Christina Stambolian, which had been sitting unworn in her closet for three years. She completed the dress that tightly wrapped around her body, with a pearl necklace with turquoise stones and drop-shaped pearl earrings. Diana was in the headlines of all the newspapers the next day. In other words, he overshadowed even that interview where Prince Charles announced that he was cheating on him. The press described Diana’s black dress as “a noble and elegant weapon of revenge”. That black dress has since been known as “Diana’s revenge outfit”.
Diana wore these pearl earrings from time to time with her tiara. His bride Kate has also worn these pearl earrings before.
25 YEARS AFTER HIS DEATH, HIS BRIDE TAKES HIS TITLE
Kate Middleton, the wife of Diana’s eldest son William, also used the pearl earrings Diana wore with that dress while going to Westminster Hall, where the ceremony was held for Queen Elizabeth II. In the meantime, let us remind you that Kate Middleton is the first person to hold the title of Princess of Wales, which was identified with Diana exactly 25 years after her death.
BROOCH FROM THE QUEEN
Meanwhile, her mother-in-law was not the only person Kate Middleton greeted at the ceremony. She also wore a stunningly large pearl brooch that belonged to the Queen to the left side of her dress, just above her heart.
THE QUEEN WAS WEARING THIS BROOCH FROM TIME TO TIME
Queen Elizabeth II wore this brooch at various times. Among these, the most memorable moments occurred in 1999 in Seoul. The Queen wore this large pearl brooch over her yellow and white patterned dress.
HIS EARRINGS ARE THE QUEEN’S GIFT
Kate Middleton wasn’t the only one to greet the Queen with her jewelry at the ceremony. The other bride, Meghan Markle, who left her duties in the royal family with her husband, Prince Harry, completed her look in black with valence earrings designed with pearls and diamonds. These earrings were also gifted to Markle by the Queen.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle left the ceremony hand in hand.
Zara, the Queen’s granddaughter born to her daughter Anne, and her husband Mike Tindall also left Westminster Hall hand in hand.
Eugenie and Beatrice, daughters of Prince Andrew and his ex-wife Sarah Ferguson, attended the ceremony with their spouses Jack Brooksbank (foreground) and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi. The two princesses, who were said to be the Queen’s favorite grandchildren, were also very upset.
