The daughter, and eldest child of Prince Edward and Sophie Wessex, could be seen comforting her younger brother as the young royals said goodbye to their grandmother.

The two teenagers were dressed in black formal dress as they stood during the service, with their heads bowed low.

The Queen’s eight grandchildren held a poignant vigil at Westminster Hall on Saturday night, where the late monarch will lie in state until 6:30am on Monday.

Peter Phillips, Zara Tindall, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, Lady Louise Windsor, and James, Viscount Severn, as well as Prince Harry and Prince William, were all in attendance.

The two brothers, dressed in military uniforms, stood at the foot and head of the Queen’s casket throughout the 15-minute service.

Zara Tindall and Peter Philips stood on either side of the Prince of Wales, while Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie were positioned on either side of Prince Harry.

Lady Louise and James Viscount Severn stood at the middle of the coffin, opposite one another.

It comes after the Queen’s children, King Charles, Princess Anne, Prince Edward and Prince Andrew, held a separate vigil around her coffin on Friday night.

The four royals stood at each corner of the Queen’s coffin where it is currently lying in state at Westminster Hall.
