Leading up to and during Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral, many members of the British royal family have been paying homage to their departed monarch. Whether it’s their sartorial choices, the tributes they left on social media, or wearing a piece of jewelry from the Queen herself, everyone is finding a way to pay their respects — including young Princess Charlotte.

Like her mother, Kate Middleton, Princess Charlotte is honoring her late great-grandmother by wearing a diamond horseshoe brooch that was gifted to her by Queen Elizabeth II some years back, something that honored Charlotte and the Queen’s love of horses, per People. See the photos below:

As you can see, Charlotte was wearing a traditional, formal look for the Queen’s funeral: wearing all black, a hat, and the horseshoe brooch.

Kate has been wearing the Queen’s pearls and matching earrings quite a few times since her passing, along with Charlotte’s aunt Meghan Markle wearing jewelry the Queen gifted to her as well.

Princess Charlotte, 7, is Kate and Prince William’s only daughter, with them also having two sons named Prince George, 9, and Prince Louis, 4.

Queen Elizabeth II was a global icon for 70 years. Since ascending to the throne at the age of 25, the long-reigning sovereign has approached her historic role with poise and quiet confidence. But behind the veneer of monarchy, Queen Elizabeth was the leader of a family and household through good times and bad. Robert Hardman’s new biography, Queen of Our Times, takes longtime royal fans behind the veil with unprecedented access to royal records, friends, staff, and more, as the legendary leader and the House of Windsor celebrates her landmark reign. This will surely be known as the definitive book on Queen Elizabeth II. Pre-order before its release in early 2023.
