Following the Committal Service, Beatrice, Fergie and Edoardo were photographed walking away, presumably to the nearby Royal Lodge where the Duke and Duchess of York live, despite being divorced.
In a touching moment, Edo reached out his hand and placed it on his wife’s lower back in a gesture of support.
Beatrice and Eugenie were known to be incredibly close to their grandmother, Her late Majesty, and have been spotted looking emotional in public since she passed away on 8 September.
They were seated in the second row of Westminster Abbey as their ‘Grannie’ was laid to rest in a state funeral this morning.
While Beatrice stood next to her husband, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, Eugenie was across the aisle next to her husband Jack Brooksbank.
Beatrice could count on the support of her husband Edo Mapelli Mozzi, her mother Sarah Ferguson, her sister Princess Eugenie and her brother-in-law Jack Brooksbank

Later yesterday afternoon, they joined the royal family for the Committal Service in Windsor.
Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie posted a heartfelt tribute to their grandmother the Queen following her passing.
In a statement from both sisters and posted on Eugenie’s Twitter account, they said:
‘Dearest Grannie, We’ve not been able to put much into words since you left us all. There have been tears and laughter, silences and chatter, hugs and loneliness, and a collective loss for you, our beloved Queen and our beloved Grannie.
‘We, like many, thought you’d be here forever. And we all miss you terribly. You were our matriarch, our guide, our loving hand on our backs leading us through this world. You taught us so much and we will cherish those lessons and memories forever.
Sarah Ferguson also supported her younger daughter Princess Eugenie as she left the chapel following the Queen’s committal service today

‘For now dear Grannie, all we want to say is thank you. Thank you for making us laugh, for including us, for picking heather and raspberries, for marching soldiers, for our teas, for comfort, for joy. You, being you, will never know the impact you have had on our family and so many people around the world.
‘The world mourns you and the tributes would really make you smile. They are all too true of the remarkable leader you are.
‘We’re so happy you’re back with Grandpa. Goodbye dear Grannie, it has been the honour of our lives to have been your granddaughters and we’re so very proud of you.
‘We know that dear Uncle Charles, the King, will continue to lead in your example as he too has dedicated his life to service.

On Saturday evening the sisters joined with their cousins Prince William, Prince Harry, Zara Tindall, Peter Phillips, and Lady Louise Windsor and James, Viscount Severn, to attend a vigil paying tribute to their beloved grandmother.
The Queen’s grandchildren stood around her coffin to ‘guard’ it in silence as she was lying in state in Westminster Hall while members of the public filed past.
The vigil followed two similar ceremonies carried out by the Queen’s children the previous day at Westminster Hall and several days earlier at St Giles’ Cathedral in Edinburgh.
Dressed in black and wearing black headbands, they stood in silence and bowed their heads as they took part in the vigil, which until now had been reserved for male members of the Royal Family.
