Only 30 guests could attend the funeral service in the chapel

Camilla was among the senior royals to attend the Duke of Edinburgh's funeral at St George's Chapel in Windsor on Saturday.

She looked visibly moved as the royal procession arrived at the chapel behind Prince Philip's coffin, which was carried on a custom Land Rover, designed by the Duke himself before his death.

Wearing an all-black outfit, the 73-year-old also donned her Bugle brooch, believed to be a touching tribute to her late father-in-law.

Camilla is the Colonel-in-Chief of The Rifles and she took over the role from the Duke of Edinburgh last summer.
