Meghan Markle had some emotional moments after the state funeral for Queen Elizabeth II, capping a long 11 days in which she and her husband, Prince Harry, were heavily scrutinized by the world media and subject to what their supporters believe were deliberate and unnecessary snubs by a royal family eager to put the California exiles in their place.
The Duchess of Sussex looked particularly bereft after she and Prince Harry attended the queen’s committal service at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle.

Like millions around the world, Meghan and Harry watched as the Imperial State Crown, orb and scepter — her “instruments of state” — were removed from the top of her coffin, was then slowly lowered into the family vault at St. George’s Chapel.
The service was the last time the queen’s coffin will be seen in public. It’s possible that Meghan and Harry would see the coffin one last time during a private family service Monday evening, when the queen is to be buried beside Prince Philip, her husband of 73 years who died in April 2021. The Sun also reported that Meghan and Harry would fly back to the United States as soon as possible to be with their two young children, Archie, 3, and Lilibet, 1, after being away from them for two weeks.

As she exited St. George’s Chapel after the committal service, the penultimate ritual of somber pageantry, Meghan looked as if she was trying not to cry.
Gone was the usual smile and confidence that the American former TV actress usually manages to radiate at public events, even under difficult circumstances. Instead, as Meghan and Harry waited for their car, she appeared uncertain. She also looked as if she was trying not to let her chin shake, and she mostly kept her eyes, heavily rimmed with dark makeup, downcast under her wide-brimmed black hat.
The Daily Mail reported that Harry was seen puffing his cheeks as if exhaling with heavy relief after they got into the car.

Earlier, Meghan was photographed wiping away a tear following the queen’s state funeral service at London’s Westminster Abbey. That emotional ceremony occurred before the late monarch’s coffin was taken to Wellington Arch in Hyde Park before being transported to St. George’s Chapel at Windsor.
