Images showing the royal fighting back tears as she arrived at Westminster Abbey with her eldest children Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
Putting on a brave face as she guided her children into the ceremony, Princess Kate appeared teary yet resilient.
“Kate looks how we all feel – sad but trying to be strong,” noted one Twitter user.
In a sweet nod to the Queen, Kate is wearing a Japanese pearl choker necklace once treasured by the late monarch.
The necklace has four rows of pearls with a central clasp, which features three rows of diamonds at the top and bottom with marquise diamonds.
