The Queen's granddaughter, 32, was pictured arriving at the funeral service at St George's Chapel in Windsor with her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi – and royal fans quickly noticed her long hair.

While she often wears her hair down, Beatrice styled her hair in loose curls and pulled it into a ponytail, accessorising with a simple black hat featuring a bow.

Several royal fans noted the extra-long style, with one Twitter user commenting: "I can’t help noticing Princess Beatrice’s hair. Not just the length, but (without wishing to be rude) the very simple way it’s styled today."

A second replied: "I noticed that too, but in a more positive way - I loved the length! Thought it looked very sleek," and several others suggested the length could be the result of hair extensions. 

"Extensions I would say. They looked lovely. Thank goodness the hairdressers are open again!" added another.

The Duke and Duchess of York's eldest daughter wore a beautiful black coat with gold button detailing and a belted waist. To finish off her sombre look, Beatrice added a pair of simple stilettos, a silky face mask and a black clutch.

Meanwhile, Edoardo opted for a black suit as he accompanied Beatrice into the funeral, which was limited to just 30 guests instead of the planned 800 attendees due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
