The Queen included a nod to Prince Philip’s pre-royal career in her funeral outfit, according to a royal commentator. The Daily Telegraph’s Royal Editor, Camilla Tominey, spoke to Australia’s Today Show about the Duke of Edinburgh’s ceremony. She gave insight into the monarch and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge’s style choices.

Today host Rebecca Maddern said: “I thought it was extremely significant and lovely to see Catherine wearing some earrings from the Queen’s personal collection.

“Also the brooch that the Queen chose to wear, given to her grandmother.”

Ms Tominey told viewers: “That’s right, the Richmond Brooch, which she has previously worn for Remembrance festivals at the Royal Albert Hall.

“I don’t know whether that’s perhaps a nod to the Duke’s naval career.”

The expert went on to speak about Kate’s appearance specifically.

She said: “There was a particularly stunning photograph of the Duchess of Cambridge arriving.

“She had a veil over her face and a face mask.

“But a photographer from Getty got this snap, showing her green eyes staring right down the lens.”

Ms Tominey also told the Today show about the “fabulous imagery” from the day.

She added: “There were some wonderful images from the day.

“Of course, we’ve seen the family themselves open the album.”

Ms Tominey continued: “A lovely photograph of the Queen and the Duke up in Balmoral was released.

“So we’ve really seen some fabulous imagery in the course of the last seven days.”

The family buried Philip on April 17 in St George’s Chapel.

His coffin is now being kept in the Royal Vault.

This is until the Queen dies and he will be moved to join her resting place.
