The Duchess of Cambridge was among the members of the royal family rocked by the heartbreaking loss of Prince Philip. During his funeral on Saturday, their raw emotions were on full display.
At one point, Kate was seen wiping tears away from her eyes as she walked alongside the Countess of Wessex following the Duke of Edinburgh's service at St. George's Chapel in Windsor Castle.

Kate was also pictured - in photos published by The Mail on Sunday - leaving the event with her father-in-law Prince Charles when she sweetly gave him a kiss on the cheek.
The royal family were certainly united with grief. Both Prince William and Prince Harry walked back up the hill to the castle in conversation and seemed to have put any differences aside.
It was the first time the royal brothers had met up since Harry and his wife Meghan Markle’s explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey, which was broadcast last month.

During the low-key funeral service, households were seated two metres apart to follow Covid-19 regulations. It meant the Queen had to sit alone in the chapel, clad in mourning black and wearing a face-covering like the rest of the limited congregation of 30.
As the world watched, she bowed her head during the national minute’s silence in honour of her late husband.
