Members of the British royal family attended the funeral of Patricia Knatchbull, Countess Mountbatten of Burma, today at St Paul’s Church in Knightsbridge. The Countess, who was the Duke of Edinburgh’s first cousin, Queen Elizabeth’s third cousin and the Prince of Wales’ last surviving godparent, died June 13 at the age of 93.
As one might expect, Queen Elizabeth, Princess Anne, Princess Alexandra, the Duchess of Gloucester and the Countess of Wessex all attended the funeral today in black hats.
The funeral was attended by members of the Knatchbull family, many who wore black hats. Photos below are only of Penelope Knatchbull (until today, titled Lady Brabourne), who is familiar to readers here. You can see hats worn by the late Countess’ sister Pamela Hicks here and niece India Hicks here.
