The equestrian wore her blonde hair styled in an elegant updo and opted for a natural makeup look. An even skin tone and a sweep of eyeliner highlighted her defined features.

She accessorised with a pair of large pearl drop earrings, in a nod to her late grandmother’s favourite accessory. Zara also wore a black netted headband designed by Bee Smith Millinery, as a modern take on a traditional mourning veil.

Zara looked sombre in a black collared dress

Zara’s royal cousins looked sombre beside her, all sporting black in accordance with royal mourning protocol.

The vigil lasted for fifteen minutes in total. The Prince of Wales stood at the head of the formation, while the Duke of Sussex stood at the foot. At King Charles’ request, both brothers donned a traditional military uniform.

Zara, Peter Phillips, Princess Beatrice, Princess Eugenie, Lady Louise and Viscount Severn stood by the middle of the coffin. The grandchildren paid their respects to the late monarch just a day after their parents, who held their own vigil on Friday night.

Notably, the grandchildren’s spouses were not in attendance. Princess Kate, Meghan Markle, Mike Tindall, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, and Jack Brooksbank did not take part in the vigil – allowing the grandchildren to come together without their wives and husbands.
