Carrie Johnson arrives at the Queen's funeral wearing an elegant coat dress

Carrie Johnson arrived to the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II with Boris by her side.

She wore an elegant coat-dress with gold detailing down the centre, accentuated by a chunky belt with a gold C-shaped buckle.

Her outfit was in-keeping with the Royal funeral dressing rules, which request below-knee-length black dresses and shoes, and she donned what is fast becoming the headwear of choice for the mourning period of the Queen: A pillarbox-hat-style headband complete with netting to serve as a veil.

Jewellery-wise, while many of the Royals have chosen pearls for the occasion, Carrie instead wore simple gold hoop earrings.

Along with this, a gold necklace and a black bag, complete with gold hardware.


Carrie is of course not the only woman in politics at the funeral so far.

Brigitte Macron arrived wearing a similar veiled pillarbox hat, while Sophie Grégoire Trudeau opted for a netted hat too.

Samantha Cameron, too, wore a pillarbox style hat, plus statement earrings and a red lip.
