She decided to wear the black version of a midi cape dress by Stella McCartney that she previously sported at a concert at the Royal Albert Hall in 2018, for the Queen's 92nd birthday celebrations.

Meanwhile, her wide-brimmed translucent asymmetric hat, which she styled with a chignon bun, was the black version of the same headpiece she wore to the Queen's Platinum Jubilee earlier this year.

In June, the Duchess donned the hat during the service of thanksgiving, which was held at St Paul's Cathedral, reports OK!

Her black gloves were also thought to be in tribute to the late monarch as she was never seen without a pair on as she attended royal engagements.

But it was her jewellery that held the most sentimental meaning as her hair 'do perfectly showed off her diamond and pearl drop studs which had been gifted to her by the late monarch during an engagement they did together in 2018.

The beautiful jewellery is thought to be a smaller version of the earrings that the late Queen tended to wear every day.

Meghan has also worn the pearls, which are no doubt now even more precious to her, when she attended a ceremony at Westminster Hall after the Queen's coffin had been transported from Buckingham Palace.

Revealing the details of the present, she said: "She gave me some beautiful pearl earrings and a matching necklace."
