The Duchess of Cambridge was spotted arriving to Windsor Castle wearing pearls and an all-black ensemble for Prince Philip's funeral today. Seated in the car with her husband, the Duke of Cambridge, she was seen wearing a netted veil and black dress for the solemn occasion, delicately accessorized with a thick pearl necklace and matching dangling earrings. Both Duchess Kate and Prince William wore face masks, adhering to COVID-19 health guidelines set by the U.K. for public gatherings.

Kate and William are two of 30 guests attending the funeral at St. George's Chapel; the guest list was pared down due to the ongoing pandemic. Attendees will include the queen, Prince Harry, and other family members, along with some of the Duke of Edinburgh's beloved royal aides. Meghan, Duchess of Sussex was not cleared to fly from California to Britain because she is currently in the later stages of her pregnancy.

Earlier this week, Prince William shared a touching tribute to his grandfather on Instagram, featuring a sweet snapshot of Prince Philip with Prince George, William and Kate's firstborn.

"I will always be grateful that my wife had so many years to get to know my grandfather and for the kindness he showed her," part of William's message read. "I will never take for granted the special memories my children will always have of their great-grandpa coming to collect them in his carriage and seeing for themselves his infectious sense of adventure as well as his mischievous sense of humour!"

He added, "My grandfather was an extraordinary man and part of an extraordinary generation. Catherine and I will continue to do what he would have wanted and will support The Queen in the years ahead," shared William. "I will miss my Grandpa, but I know he would want us to get on with the job."
