The striking outfits mourners donned as they say goodbye to the Queen | UK News

Many thousands of people are filing into Westminster Hall to see the Queen’s coffin, and some have taken to dressing up in striking outfits to mark the occasion.

Whilst many have donned practical clothing to prepare for waiting outdoors in the queue in famously unpredictable British weather, others opted for bright hats, patriotic flags or tartan.

As they take a moment to mourn the loss of the monarch, Westminster Hall bore witness to an eclectic mix of clothing, from feathered caps and tall top hats, to red and blue suits and sunglasses.
