Carrie Johnson wears a military-style outfit as she accompanies Boris Johnson to Queen’s funeral

Carrie Johnson and former Prime Minister Boris Johnson arrived at Westminster Abbey for the state funeral of Queen Elizabeth II.

The 34-year-old wore a long black dress with military-style buttons and a square neckline.

She accessorized with a wide black silk headband with a short black net veil, a gold pendant necklace, a black handbag and black stilettos.

The former residents of Number 10 are among many political figures who will attend the elaborate event.

US President Joe Biden, Frenchman Emmanuel Macron and Brazilian Jair Bolsonaro were among other political leaders to enter the 1,269-year-old church on Monday morning.

Some 2,000 mourners will attend the funeral, which will begin at 11 a.m.

The coffin of the longest-reigning monarch will soon be brought back from Westminster Hall, where it has lain undisturbed since Wednesday evening.

Transport for London said it expects more than a million people to follow the route in London, while millions more watch the TV service around the world.

Monday’s state funeral is the first of its kind since that of Winston Churchill in 1965 and will take the form of an elaborate ceremony, after which Her Majesty’s coffin will be carried to Windsor Castle.

Celebrities expected include Sir David Attenborough, Kill Eve star Sandra Oh, Canadian musician Gregory Charles and Olympic gold medalist Mark Tewksbury.

Other celebrities likely to turn up at the funeral to pay their respects include former racing driver Sir Jackie Stewart, who befriended the late monarch early in his career.

In his tribute to the Queen, he said: “She was certainly the most extraordinary woman I have ever known.”

Lord Andrew Lloyd-Webber and former Take That singer Gary Barlow could also be in attendance, having co-written a song for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in 2012.
