The Queen in half mourning for first public appearance since Prince Philip’s death

May 13, 2021

According to the Royal Central:

Her Majesty wore grey for the event, one of the traditional colours of half mourning. Her pale dove coat was trimmed with gold and she wore a grey and yellow floral dress underneath. Her grey hat featured feathers in the same colour and gold trim.

For the first time in her reign, the Queen’s throne sat along at the centre of the House of Lords. The consort’s throne, always at its side, had been removed following the death of the Duke of Edinburgh. Prince Charles and Camilla sat on Chairs of State, below and to the right of the throne.
