In attendance were Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Princess Anne and Sir Tim Laurence, and the Earl and Countess of Wessex along with their teenage children Lady Louise Windsor and James, Viscount Severn.

Lady Louise, 18, wore a sophisticated navy blue dress complete with a flattering skater skirt and square neckline, layered with a royal blue cardigan. She accessorised her outfit with a beaded blue clutch and striking blue fascinator, adding layers of silver jewellery.

The young royal was sure to pay tribute to her late grandfather too, opting to wear her equestrian broocha nod to her and Philip's shared passion for horse riding, in particular carriage riding, which the teenager has taken up in recent years.

Louise looked radiant with a natural, yet sophisticated a makeup look, adding a touch of rouge to her cheeks and lips. 

Completing her elegant ensemble, the young royal wore her honey blonde hair in an elegant curled style, neatly pinned beneath her statement hair accessory.

Louise was particularly close to her late grandfather, as they both shared a common interest of carriage driving, at which Louise is very talented.

Back in 2019, Philip was pictured proudly watching his granddaughter compete in the Private Driving Singles carriage drive during the Royal Windsor Horse Show, where she achieved third place.

The Queen has been actively involved in the plans for Tuesday's memorial service, which incorporated some elements initially planned for Philip's funeral that were unable to go ahead due to the government's COVID restrictions at the time.
