The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were also at the service. The Cambridges are closely connected to the family: Natalia, Duchess of Westminster is William's godmother, and the 7th Duke of Westminster is one of Prince George's godparents. Kate wore the petite diamond and pearl earrings that are on loan to her from the Queen.

The three royal Kent siblings -- the Duke of Kent, Princess Alexandra, and Prince Michael -- arrived together at the cathedral. Alexandra wore diamond floral stud earrings with her diamond floral brooch.

The late Duke's widow, Natalia, wore diamond and pearl earrings with a lovely diamond brooch. She arrived at the service with her son, who is now the 7th Duke of Westminster.
