Queen Consort Camilla wears an elegant hat for Queen Elizabeth’s coffin procession

The Queen’s coffin was taken to St Giles Cathedral, Edinburgh, and was followed on foot by King Charles, Prince Andrew, the Duke of York, Prince Edward, the Earl of Wessex and Anne, the royal princess. Camilla, Queen Consort, and Sophie, Countess of Wessex also traveled behind Queen Elizabeth II’s coffin procession in carriages.

After the procession, the King and Queen Consort, accompanied by other members of the Royal Family, attended a service of prayer and reflection for the life of Queen Elizabeth.

Queen Camilla was seen wearing a black dress with silver details and a large black hat with feathers on one side.

The coat dress the Queen Consort chose for Queen Elizabeth’s procession and coffin service is the same one she previously wore at the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral.

The piece had a fitted bodice with fine silver detailing and it flared out into a fuller skirt.

Queen Camilla completed the look with black tights, a simple pair of black heels and a tall hat, and wore her short blonde bob under the chic feathered hat.

The royal was also seen wearing a black clutch and a pair of black gloves.

For jewelry, she sported a beautiful diamond brooch, her four-row pearl necklace with round diamond clasp and elegant pearl earrings.

Camilla was seen wearing the Queen Mother’s Thistle Brooch, one of the Queen Mother’s favorite jewels.


The brooch, adorned with two thistles, symbolizes one of the countries that make up the UK, Scotland, but the Queen Mother wore the piece even outside of Scottish engagements, showing her fondness for the country.

The large jewel is made of diamonds and features two thistles rendered from gemstones. Queen Elizabeth used to lend the piece to Camilla for her own Scottish engagements and the royal was seen wearing it earlier this year.
