Carrie, 34, looked incredible wearing a black, square-necked dress from high street store Karen Millen. She carried a beautiful black bag by Grace Han, known as the 'Black Love Letter Small Top Handle Bag', which Princess Kate also has. She wore high heels, and her long blonde hair was immaculately blow-dried with a black headband placed on the top.

He later remarked she remained "absolutely on it" despite her ill health.

"One of the reasons it was so shocking on the eighth to hear about her death was because in that audience she had been absolutely on it. Just two days before her death. She was actively focused on geopolitics, on UK politics, quoting statesmen from the 50s, it was quite extraordinary," he told the BBC.
