Queen’s funeral: The fashion nods to Elizabeth made by her royal family members

From the choice of flowers picked for the floral arrangement on top of the Queen’s coffin to the hymns sung in church, there were several elements during the monarch’s funeral which were small nods to Her Majesty.

While many have looked into the jewellery worn by female family members, their choice of dresses also had significant meaning.

Despite the strict dress code for all mourners, royal and political alike — all-black, to-the-knee dresses or coats, black hats and optional veils for women, and formal morning coats for men — many were able to show their own personality in their outfits.

Starting with the Queen Consort Camilla, who wore a fitted dress coat with a black fascinator embellished with flower appliqués and a netted veil.

She also carried a clutch by Launer, Queen Elizabeth’s longtime favourite label.
