Princess Anne was dressed in royal attire while attending Queen Elizabeth’s II funeral service in London on Monday. Anne walked side by side with King Charles III behind the Queen’s funeral cortege borne on the State Gun carriage of the Royal Navy.
The princess wore a royal blue military uniform, as is tradition for royal family members for this occasion. The uniform consists of a black jacket with matching dark pants completed with a blue sash, badges, and gold buttons. The uniform’s formal white hat, as well as a sword and white gloves, are also customary.
The procession wore black shoes, including Prince Harry, Prince William, David Armstrong-Jones, King Charles III, Prince Richard and Timothy Laurence. Anne’s footwear consisted of black leather boots with almond-shaped toes and short heels for formality and efficiency.
Buckingham Palace said that the Queen’s state funeral will take place on Sept. 19 at 11 a.m. The fashion industry has also joined the nation in mourning as the British Fashion Council has recommended that London Fashion Week shows on Sept. 19 should be rearranged.
