Meghan Markle cries, wipes tears at Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral


Meghan Markle became emotional at Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral Monday morning.

The Duchess of Sussex was seen wiping away tears while her lip quivered as the late monarch’s coffin was transferred into a hearse at Wellington Arch. From there, the Queen’s casket departed for its final journey to Windsor Castle.

Members of the royal family, including Markle, 41, watched as the pallbearers lifted the coffin from the State Gun Carriage and loaded it into the back of the Jaguar hearse.

For the historic event, Markle wore the diamond-and-pearl earrings the late monarch gifted her as well as a Stella McCartney dress she had previously worn to honor the Queen on a separate occasion.

Earlier, the “Suits” alum joined her husband, Prince Harry, 38, at Westminster Abbey where they sat in the second row for the funeral service — and as far away as possible from Prince William and Kate Middleton.

However, Markle was not the only royal to become emotional during the somber morning.

King Charles III, 73, was photographed wiping away tears as he sat with other members of the royal family, including Queen Consort Camilla and Prince William. Prince Edward’s wife, Sophie, Countess of Wessex, was also seen patting her eyes with a tissue — and at one point, comforting Prince George — while those around her remained relatively stoic.

Queen Elizabeth II died on Sept. 8 at age 96 after a 70-year reign — the longest ever of any British monarch. Following her death, her son Charles became king. He honored his late mother with a symbolic floral wreath and a heartfelt note that he laid atop her coffin.
