Anne, Princess Royal, walked alongside the men of the royal family in the processional honoring of Prince Philip before he is laid to final rest. She broke the tradition of only men walking in royal funeral processionals, according to E! News. The 70-year-old princess looked graceful and elegant as she dressed in a long black coat, sporting her military medals.

The standout feature of the Princess Royal's attire was her Grima pearl earrings, which she has worn time and again at public appearances. The earrings were actually a gift to the princess from the Queen and Prince Philip in the late 1960s. Designed by Andrew Grima, the earrings constitute gold, pearl, and diamonds in a modern leaf design. The beautiful pair was also worn by the princess on the day of her wedding to second husband Sir Timothy Laurence.

As she walked beside Prince Charles and led Prince William and Prince Harry in the funeral procession, she broke the Windsor tradition of women being veiled or riding in carriages at funerals. She had also made a bold, empowering statement in 2002 at the Queen Mother's funeral when she donned a full military uniform, complete with trousers.

Users across the world who have tuned into their televisions to watch the Duke of Edinburgh's funeral are pouring in their appreciation and respect for Princess Anne.

Some users felt that she looked like her mother the Queen at the funeral, while some felt she looked a 'splitting image' of Princess Margaret. "Wow. Princess Anne looks just like her mother. I thought it was the queen at first," wrote a user. Another remarked, "Princess Anne looking the spitting image of her late Aunt Margaret #PrincePhilipfuneral".

Hinting that she was Prince Philip's favorite child, a user wrote, "Even though she has hardly received any attention today, i think she looks the saddest. Not easy, she was dad's girl."
