Happy memories of Queen Elizabeth live on.

Kate Middleton paid a touching tribute to her late grandmother-in-law through a special outfit at Monday’s state funeral for Queen Elizabeth II, who died on September 8 at the age of 96.

The new Princess of Wales brought back the same Alexander McQueen coat dress she wore for June’s Trooping the Colour events during the Platinum Jubilee — wearing a black version of the exact piece she sported in white to celebrate Queen Elizabeth’s 70 years on the throne.

The single-breasted, blazer-style coat dress features a full skirt and two buttons at the waist and is a bespoke piece from the British designer, with the princess having first worn the white version to the G7 Summit in 2021.

While she chose a jaunty blue-and-white hat and sapphire-and-diamond earrings that belonged to Princess Diana for her Jubilee ensemble, the 40-year-old royal went with sentimental pieces from the late monarch for yesterday’s funeral services in London and Windsor.

Wearing a wide-brimmed black hat by Philip Treacy featuring a dramatic veil, Middleton donned pearl-and-diamond pieces that belonged to the Queen — the same jewelry she wrote to Prince Philip’s funeral in 2021.
