Kate Middleton wore earrings previously owned by Princess Diana to the Queen’s procession.

Onlookers were deeply impressed by the carefully chosen jewelry from the Princess of Wales.

Read on for the full story.

In recent years, people have been, understandably, more concerned for the Queen.

  via Getty Images  

Losing a partner of more than seventy years must have been horrific. And right after that, she was struck with another painful blow just a few months later.

At the time, according to friends, the Queen was using her dogs to help cope with the grief of losing Philip…

  via Getty Images  

The Queen was known for being a true animal lover, with one animal, in particular, that’s always been associated with HRH.

The Queen was given her first corgi, Susan, on her eighteenth birthday in 1944.

  via Getty Images  

It has been estimated that the Queen owned more than thirty dogs during her reign, all of which were from the same family.

Her most famous dog was Monty, who appeared with her in a sketch for the Opening Ceremony of the 2012 London Olympics…

  via Getty Images  

The Queen had planned not to get any more dogs after Vulcan, her dorgi – a dachshund-corgi cross – passed away. She was left with just 1 corgi called Candy.

She acquired 2 new four-legged friends when Philip was hospitalized…

  via Getty Images  

And their names had truly special meanings…

Fergus was named after her uncle Fergus Bowes-Lyon, who was killed in action during the First World War.

  via Getty Images  

The second dog, Muick, pronounced Mick, is a pure-bred corgi and named after Loch Muick, a favorite spot for the Royals during their summer holiday.

When the news of the new dogs came out, Royal biographer Penny Junor said: “Her corgis are hugely important to her.”

  via Getty Images  

“They have over the years been closer to her than any human being. The corgis are intensely loyal and loving and they have never let her down.”

But sadly, just a month after Philip died…

  via Getty Images  

Her 5-month-old puppy Fergus passed away.

Fergus had been purchased by Prince Andrew to help his mother cope with the grieving process.

  via Getty Images  

But sources confirmed Fergus passed away in May, just a month after she lost her husband.

A source told The Sun: “The Queen is absolutely devastated.

  via Getty Images  

“The puppies were brought in to cheer her up during a very difficult period.”

“Everyone concerned is upset as this comes so soon after she lost her husband.”

  via Getty Images  

It seemed that as she tried to handle all her grief, Queen Elizabeth appeared to be struggling physically as well as emotionally…

She was snapped at Westminster Abbey with her daughter for the Thanksgiving service…

  via Getty Images  

To celebrate the hundredth anniversary of the British Royal Legion.

But as soon as she stepped out of her car, people noticed something concerning…

  via Getty Images  

She was using a walking stick to support herself, something she hadn’t been seen with for seventeen years.

The only other time the Queen was been pictured with a stick was after her knee operation back in 2003…

  via Getty Images  

But she quickly recovered and stopped using it the following year, in 2004.

The pictures left a lot of people worried about her physical health…

  via Getty Images  

However, although it might have been a little alarming, the Queen still looked to be her usual upbeat self.

But royal doctors were then reported to have given her a stern health warning.

  via Getty Images  

And people were left worried all over again…

Queen Elizabeth was reportedly told to stop drinking by royal doctors.

  via Getty Images  

As per Vanity Fair, 2 sources claimed that doctors advised the queen to cut out alcohol except for special occasions.

“The Queen has been told to give up her evening drink which is usually a martini,” the source said.

  via Getty Images  

“It’s not really a big deal for her, she is not a big drinker but it seems a trifle unfair that at this stage in her life she’s having to give up one of very few pleasures.”

Doctors were said to have given her the warning about alcohol to ensure she is was healthy as possible for her full schedule.

  via Getty Images  

It also came ahead of her Platinum Jubilee celebrations in June.

However, things went from bad to worse as the queen suffered a sprained back, resulting in her absence from the Remembrance service in London.

  via Getty Images  

The service would have been her first appearance since being admitted to hospital, after which she was advised by her doctors to rest for 2 weeks and only undertake “desk-based duties,” as per Buckingham Palace.

The palace released a statement ahead of the Remembrance event…

  via Getty Images  

“The Queen, having sprained her back, has decided this morning with great regret that she will not be able to attend today’s Remembrance Sunday service at the Cenotaph.”

“Her Majesty is disappointed that she will miss the service,” it continued.

  via Getty Images  

“As in previous years, a wreath will be laid on Her Majesty’s behalf by the Prince of Wales.

“His Royal Highness, along with the Duchess of Cornwall, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, the Earl and Countess of Wessex, Princess Royal and Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence, the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, the Duke of Kent and Princess Alexandra will be present at the Cenotaph today as planned.”

The Queen had only ever missed 6 cenotaph ceremonies in her sixty-nine-year reign…

  via Getty Images  

But that wasn’t the only commitment that had to be canceled as the Queen’s in-person appearance at the General Synod was also canceled with the Earl of Wessex attending instead.

While attending the Synod, the Earl read a speech to bishops and clergy at the Westminster headquarters of the Church of England on behalf of the queen, The Sun reported.

  via Getty Images  

But what the Queen had to say in her speech broke hearts…

In her speech, the queen praised the Church of England for offering “hope” during the pandemic.

  via Getty Images  

A period of time that she described as full “of anxiety, grief & weariness.”

“It is hard to believe that it is over fifty years since Prince Philip and I attended the very first meeting of the General Synod,” the Earl also read on her behalf.

  via Getty Images  

“None of us can slow the passage of time; and while we often focus on all that has changed in the intervening years, much remains unchanged, including the Gospel of Christ and his teachings.”

She showed her nation just how motivated she was to carry on with her duties.

  via Getty Images  

As she returned back to work after telling Armed Force Chiefs that she couldn’t move.

The Queen was back to work, smiling, and performing duties for her nation.

  via Getty Images  

And she did so via a Zoom conference call.

The Queen virtually welcomed ambassadors, and definitely displayed her ability to power through.

Attending the virtual call was Ambassador of Finland Jukka Siukosaari, with Mariella Siukosaari, and the Ambassador of Jordan Manar Dabbas, with Muna Abuhassan.

And she even managed to crack an adorable smile for her audience.

Despite feeling tense after the day before.

And it’s safe to say, that the Queen had a lot to feel tense about lately.

  via Getty Images  

Especially after Prince Charles tested positive for the coronavirus.

However, that didn’t stop the Queen from ensuring her job continued on.

  via Getty Images  

Including her partaking in her Platinum Jubilee celebration.

The celebration, which marked a whopping 70 years of the Queen’s reign, was well attended.

  via Getty Images  

The vast majority of the royals were there for the many different ceremonies and events over the four days.

Prince William and Kate Middleton were there with their children.

  via Getty Images  

Alongside Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla.

And as ever, all eyes were fixed on the family in the hopes of seeing some drama.

  via Getty Images  

Particularly between Kate Middleton and her son, Prince Louis.

Because it seemed as though little Louis really wasn’t enjoying the celebrations…

  via Getty Images  

As he was spotted pulling a series of amusing facial expressions that got the whole internet talking! But, that wasn’t the only moment people paid attention to…

Because Prince Charles addressing the Queen as “mummy” in his Jubilee speech really turned some heads.

  via Getty Images  

In his speech, the Prince of Wales thanked his mother for the seventy years she has reigned as Queen…

“Your Majesty, mummy, you have met us and talked with us, you laugh and cry with us, and most importantly, you have been there for us for these seventy years. You pledged to serve your whole life. You continue to deliver. That is why we are here. That is what we celebrate tonight. These pictures on your house are the stories of your life, and ours. So, Your Majesty, that is why we all say thank you,” the speech said.

And although Prince Charles elicited a huge cheer from the crowd, social media became divided over his choice of words for his mom.

  via Getty Images  

One person wrote: “Something deeply disturbing about a 70-year-old man who says, Mummy.”

But then the Queen made headlines for some more heartbreaking news…

  via Getty Images  

And it was linked to her childhood friend.

The sad news came just months after the monarch also lost fellow close friends the Duchess of Grafton and Lady Farnham, The Mirror reports.

  via Getty Images  

The Queen’s Scottish-born friend Lady Myra Butter and Her Majesty were “both young girls after she was enlisted to join her in various childhood activities,” including swimming and attending Brownies.

Even so, Lady Myra Butter told The Telegraph last year that “the Guides and the Brownies were a real mixture and was nice” to join friends, family, and “all the people in the royal mews.”

  via Getty Images  

She remained close to Her Majesty and also had a long-standing friendship with Philip — who she paid a “beautiful tribute” to after his death last year.

Where she mentioned how “lost” the Queen would be without her husband.

  via Getty Images  

She also didn’t hesitate to explain that “Philip’s dedication to duty meant nobody could have done that job” as the Duke of Edinburgh had done for decades.

But it was only at the beginning of this year when Lady Myra Butter handed back the Pushkin medal which she was awarded by President Vladimir Putin.

  via Getty Images  

For bringing Russian and Scottish schoolchildren together — but this is no big news for the Queen’s inner circle member…

As she was a descendant of Tsar Nicholas I and of poet and play-writer Alexander Pushkin.

  via Getty Images  

But sadly, Lady Myra Butter passed away at the age of 97 in London…

On Thursday 8th Septempber, Buckingham Palace revealed that the Queen was placed under medical supervision at Balmoral.

  via Getty Images  

It said in a statement: “Following further evaluation this morning, The Queen’s doctors are concerned for Her Majesty’s health and have recommended she remain under medical supervision.

“The Queen remains comfortable and at Balmoral.”

Prince Charles, Camilla, and Prince William traveled to Balmoral to be by Her Majesty’s side.

  via Getty Images  

Just days before her decline in health was announced, the Queen met with Liz Truss to appoint her as the new Prime Minister of the UK.

Meghan and Harry also traveled to be by the Queen’s side.

  via Getty Images  

The pair canceled an event to travel to Scotland to be with their family.

Now, the devastating news of the Queen’s own passing has been announced.

  via Getty Images  

Meaning Prince Charles is now King with Camilla becoming Queen Consort.

The title was announced before the Queen’s passing just before her Platinum Jubilee.

  via Getty Images  

The Queen said at the time: “When, in the fullness of time, my son Charles becomes King, I know you will give him and his wife Camilla the same support that you have given me.

“And it is my sincere wish that, when that time comes, Camilla will be known as Queen Consort as she continues her own loyal service.”

  via Getty Images  

The Titles have also changed for the new heir to the throne Prince William and Kate Middleton, from Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to Duke of Cornwall and Duke of Rothesay, with Kate taking on the female versions.

King Charles’ coronation will likely not take place for a while yet as the family mourn and rigorous planning takes place.

  via Getty Images  

Buckingham Palace released a statement confirming her passing.

Following the Queen’s death, Operation London Bridge has begun…

  via Getty Images  

This is a 10-day mourning period leading up to the Queen’s funeral before Charles officially takes the throne.

To mark the period, flags will be lowered to half-mast. A gun salute and a national minute’s silence will also take place in the coming days.

  via Getty Images  

The UK’s new prime minister Liz Truss will also make a statement before meeting with the new King of England.

Prince Charles will then give a speech before the service of remembrance for Her Majesty is held at St. Paul’s Cathedral.

  via Getty Images  

After this, on day 10 of the mourning period, processions will take place before the Queen is buried at King George VI Memorial Chapel.

Since the tragic news of Her Majesty’s death, many royal fans have been paying their respects outside Buckingham Palace.

  via Getty Images  

A statement was subsequently put up on the gates outside the Palace, officially announcing her death to passers-by and those who may not have seen the news yet.

The statement, which is the same as what was posted on the Royal website, reads: “The Queen died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon. The King and The Queen Consort will remain at Balmoral this evening and will return to London tomorrow.”

  via Getty  

Many have also been sharing that the Queen has now been reunited with her husband, Prince Philip, who died last year.

According to sources, the Queen held onto the faith that she would be reunited with her love when she passed.

  via Getty Images  

The pair met when she was just thirteen, and it was allegedly love at first sight.

Prince Philip was eighteen at the time, and the pair later got married in  1947.

  via Getty Images  

Their partnership lasted seventy-three years and ended with Philip’s tragic death last April, aged ninety-nine.

During their Golden Wedding Anniversary in 1997, the Queen said of Philip: “He has, quite simply, been my strength and stay all these years, and I, and his whole family, and this and many other countries, owe him a debt greater than he would ever claim, or we shall ever know.”

  via Getty Images  

It’s clear Prince Philip had been her rock throughout her life, a presence which she was torn apart without.

But sources claimed that she was comforted by the thought that the pair would reunite one day.

  via Getty Images  

“It is central to her life,” a friend of the Queen said at the time. “It means she looks confidently forward to the time when she and he are reunited.”

At last, they are together again.

  via Getty Images  

And they are set to be buried together on the grounds of Windsor Castle.

Before this happens, Prince Philip will be moved from his current resting place at the Royal Vault at St George’s Chapel to be beside his wife.

  via Getty Images  

They will then be buried in the King George VI Memorial Chapel together.

This is also the resting place of the Queen’s family, including her father, King George IV, mother, and sister, Princess Margaret.

  via Getty Images  

Following the Queen’s death, Prince Charles has become the King.

And he could have chosen from any of his given names, so could have been King Arthur, King George, King Philip, or King Charles.

  via Getty Images  

Clarence House, the former Prince of Wales’ official residence, has now declared that he will be officially known as King Charles III.

King Charles III isn’t the only royal with a new title.

  via : Getty  

The future King and consort of Britain, Prince William, and Kate Middleton, are now to be called The Duke and Duchess of Cornwall and Cambridge.

Following the death of her majesty, both William and Kate have changed their name on their social media bios to, “The official account of The Duke and Duchess of Cornwall and Cambridge and the Royal Foundation, based at Kensington Palace.”

  via getty  

William and Kate have not yet made a statement regarding the Queen’s passing.

 Following Queen Elizabeth II’s death, people have been curious about the line of succession to the throne.

Here is how Prince Charles became King Charles III and his accession to the throne:

  via Getty Images  

To start with, Charles has been the longest-serving heir to the throne, ever since his mother became Queen when he was just three-years-old.

So when was Charles declared King?

  via Getty Images  

The throne is never vacant and passes on as soon as the monarch dies so Charles became King immediately after Her Majesty, the Queen died.

The succession plans dictate that Charles will make his first address to the public as the head of state on the evening after the Queen’s death…

  via Getty Images  

And will be officially confirmed as King the following day at St James’ Palace in London.

It’s likely that Charles’ coronation won’t be for several months.

  via Getty Images  

The nation needs to give time and pay their respects to their Queen, who was the longest-serving monarch ever.

Holding such a ceremony of celebration during the seventeen-day mourning period, which the king had recently announced, would show a lack of respect.

  via Getty Images  

After the death of the Queen’s father, King George VI, Her Majesty had waited sixteen months for her coronation.

Therefore, we will probably see Charles crowned as King in 2023.

  via Getty Images  

Then the line of succession continues…

As of now, Prince William is next in line to ascend to the throne.

  via Getty Images  

However, William won’t become King until his father’s death.

At Charles’ age, his reign as a monarch won’t be as long as the Queen’s.

  via : Getty  

Polls have shown that almost half of Britons want Charles to step down as monarch and allow his eldest son to take the driver’s seat.

But that won’t happen.

  via Getty Images  

No monarch has ever turned down the throne, except for The Queen’s uncle, Edwards VII.

After Prince William, the next rightful heir to the throne would be Prince George.

  via Getty Images  

William and Kate’s oldest son, Prince George, 9, is now second in line to the throne.

After the death of her grandmother, 7-year-old Princess Charlotte becomes the most senior female royal in terms of succession.

  via Getty Images  

And is third in line to the throne.

The youngest member of the Cambridge family, Prince Louis, 4, is fourth in line for the throne.

  via Getty Images  

The little Prince made rose to prominence after acting his age at the Queen’s jubilee celebrations.

Next in line to the throne of Prince Louis is Prince Harry, thirty-seven.

  via Getty Images  

Harry is fifth in line to the throne.

Harry and Meghan’s firstborn, Archie Mountbatten-Windsor, who is now 3 years old, is sixth.

  via Getty Images  

And the couple’s fifteen-month-old daughter, Lilibet Mountbatten-Windsor, is seventh in line to the throne.

Charles III has been officially proclaimed as King.

  via Getty Images  

He inherited the throne at St. James Palace this morning.

Former UK prime ministers – including Gordon Brown, David Cameron Boris Johnson and Theresa May – were there to celebrate the historic moment.

  via Getty Images  

Alongside the Accession Council.

Which also means William and Kate have been officially named as Prince and Princess of Wales.

  via Getty Images  

Which means that Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis have new names.

Their original last name was Cambridge, but that is to be changed to Wales.

  via Getty Images  

All change.

But now, the Prince and Princess of Wales have reunited with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

  via Getty Images  

The foursome headed to Windsor castle to view tributes left to the Queen, as well as greet the many fans waiting there.

It was reportedly Prince Harry’s idea for them to get back together.

  via Getty Images  

Despite reports of a huge feud between the brothers, William is allegedly understood to have reached out to Harry, to make their first public appearance together in a year.

Kate Middleton spoke to the mourners in attendance about her own children.

  via Getty Images  

Banita Ranow was among them, Independent reports, and took to TikTok to share what Kate said.

Kate was welling up as she revealed what Louis said to her about the Queen’s death.

  via Getty Images  

“Louis said ‘at least Grannie is with great grandpa now’,” Ranow claims the new Princess of Wales said. Understandably, it made her emotional, and we can’t blame her.

Beautiful.

Now, the Queen’s coffin has been taken from Balmoral to Edinburgh.

  via Getty Images  

It made its way through the countryside, with many mourners lining the streets to pay their respects.

The coffin was draped in the Royal Standard of Scotland…

  via Getty Images  

While a wreath of Balmoral flowers sat on top.

Once the hearse made it to St Giles’ Cathedral in Edinburgh, the Queen’s coffin was taken inside.

  via Getty Images  

The Queen’s children paid tribute to their mother through the Vigil of the Princes.

According to PEOPLE, they stood side by side with the Royal Company of Archers around the coffin for approximately ten minutes.

  via Getty Images  

The Queen’s children looked as if they were holding back the tears as they stood at each side of their mother’s coffin.

During the event, King Charles wore a kilt due to the Vigil taking place in Scotland.

  via Getty Images  

It’s only been recorded that a Vigil has taken place 3 times in history.

The first time it took place was when King George V died in 1936.

  via Getty Images  

The second, was when the Queen’s mother died in 2002, and the third time was for Queen Elizabeth.

The Independent reports that Princess Anne is the first female royal to take part in the tradition.

  via Getty Images  

But you may have also noticed following closer behind the procession, was a very somber-looking Queen Consort, who in her own way honored her late mother-in-law.

Camilla followed in a car with Prince Edward’s wife, Sophie, Countess of Wessex.

  via Getty Images  

And of course, everyone was looking at her attire for the day…

According to Harper’s Bazaar, Camilla donned a black long-sleeved dress with a matching hat embellished with fur.

  via Getty Images  

She accessorized with a layered pearl necklace with a diamond pendant, various gold bracelets, and a stunning large diamond thistle brooch.

Camilla was gifted the beautiful piece by the late Queen Elizabeth.

  via Getty Images  

And it seems that Queen Consort wasn’t the only Royal to pay tribute to Her Majesty through their appearance…

Kate Middleton wore the Queen’s diamond and pearl leaf brooch…

  via Getty Images  

Which could be seen pinned against her black jacket at the late Royal’s procession.

It’s a piece that the Queen wore very few times.

  via Getty Images  

The last time the Her Majesty was spotted wearing it was on a yellow dress back in 1999, in Seoul, Metro reports.

It was a meaningful choice not just because the brooch belonged to the Queen, but because of the materials – pearls are often worn for mourning periods.

  via Getty Image  

Adding to the moment, the Princess of Wales also wore earrings that were previously owned by Princess Diana.

This isn’t the first time we have seen Kate wearing the Queen’s and Princess Diana’s jewelry at the same time.

  via Getty Images  

The Princess of Wales also wore the same brooch and earrings to The Passchendaele Commemorations in Belgium.
