I’ll be attending my second funeral of September today–third if you count Queen Elizabeth’s.
While Queen Elizabeth’s funeral was certainly much grander (and longer!) than any funeral I’ve attended in person, the dress code (minus the hats) is what I was used to in the US.
Men wear dark suits. Women wear dark dresses or nice dark pants.
I’ve attended five or six Swiss funerals in my 13 years here and one for a fellow ex-pat. Today’s funeral is for my good friend Richard Brown who was part of my Improv Team. Richard is the larger-than-life man in the middle.
