Princess Eugenie was spotted wiping away tears from her face as the royal attended the late monarch's lie in state.

The Queen's granddaughter looked sombre as she stood alongside her husband Jack Brooksbank, as well as Zara and Mike Tindall at Westminster Hall in London.

Dressed in black and clasping a back and gold handbag, the Princess could not hold back her tears as she tilted her head to one side and wiped her face. She completed her all-black ensemble with a black hat boasting a short netted veil – similar to that worn by Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton.

Her stunning wedding ring was also on show as she positioned her hands in sync with her husband who looked well presented in his black and white suit.

Meanwhile, Zara and her husband mostly looked straight ahead – although there were moments when Mike tilted his toward the ground in sadness during the service.

Queen Elizabeth II’s coffin was driven to Buckingham Palace last night after being flown from Edinburgh where the Queen had been lying in state at St Giles' Cathedral in the Scottish capital, after the late monarch died at Balmoral Castle in Aberdeenshire on 8 September.

At 2.22 pm her casket was carried down The Mall on a gun carriage to Westminster Hall where it will lie in state for members of the public to pay their respects until the late sovereign’s funeral on Monday 19 September.

Her coffin was followed on foot by her royal family who solemnly marched behind the carriage – a tradition which dates back to the death of Queen Victoria in 1901.

But Eugenie was not the only one to shed a few tears, Prince Harry was also seen wiping his eyes as he appeared to lose composure during an emotional moment.

During the service, the senior royals stood in formation facing the coffin on its purple-covered catafalque, which was flanked with a tall, yellow flickering candle at each corner of the wide scarlet platform.

The King and Queen Consort stood together a metre or so apart, with the Princess Royal and Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence behind them, then the Duke of York alone, and in the next row the Earl and Countess of Wessex.

Behind them were the Prince and Princess of Wales, with the Duke of Sussex behind William, and the Duchess of Sussex directly behind Kate. The Cross of Westminster was placed at the head of the coffin.
