Zara Tindall joined the rest of her family to bid farewell to her grandfather Prince Philip on Saturday, paying tribute to the late royal in black like other royal ladies.

The mother-of-three chose a black dress, wore her blonde hair up in a slicked-back bun and topped it with a black hat that featured a small bow on the side. She added subtle pearl drop earrings and in pictures arriving to the chapel in the car, she shielded her eyes with sunglasses.
