The funeral of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II took place on Monday 19 September, with millions of mourners in London gathering to pay their respects to the late monarch. Guests at the somber occasion included state leaders and dignitaries from all over the globe, and of course the Queen's own family.

It was announced on the day of the funeral that Princess Charlotte and Prince George, aged seven and nine, would also be in attendance on the day to say goodbye to their great grandmother. They were pictured arriving at the church alongside their mother Kate, the Princess of Wales.

And seven-year-old Princess Charlotte drew attention thanks to a special outfit detail which paid tribute to the Queen. The daughter of the Prince and Princess of Wales attached a horseshoe brooch to her black attire, a sweet nod to her 'Gan Gan', as the children affectionately called the Queen, who famously had a deep love of horses and riding. It is believed that horse riding is a passion that Charlotte shared with her great grandmother.

It has become tradition over the years that the royal family use their sartorial choices to pay respect to the situation they are in; whether that be to people they've loved, or countries they are visiting. And so it is no surprise that over the last two weeks we have seen the likes of Kate, the Princess of Wales and Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex pay tribute to the late monarch through special pieces of jewellery, too.

On the day of the funeral itself, the Princess of Wales donned the special Four Row Japanese Pearl Choker that has previously been worn by Queen Elizabeth and Princess Diana.

Other special tributes to the Queen on the day included the choice of flowers and hymns - both of which included a nod to her beloved late husband, the Duke of Edinburgh.
