Former Secretary of State Julie Bishop paid a subtle but moving tribute to the late Queen Elizabeth II this week.

During an appearance on the Today show, the 66-year-old wore an all-black ensemble to signify she was in mourning.

She also wore a pearl necklace, as the late monarch was known for her love of pearls.

Queen Elizabeth II passed away on Thursday at the age of 96.

Bishop had some kind words to King Charles III during her interview with the Today show.

She has met the Royal Family “about 16 times” over the years during her travels to Australia, while she is the Australian chairman of his charity The Prince’s Trust.

Bishop described Charles as someone with a sense of humor who was “self-righteous” before sharing an experience they had together in Vanuatu in 2018.

“I was holding a little boy who raised his hand to Prince Charles, who was holding a cup of tea at the time, and Prince Charles scooped up a little bit of tea as if to give it to the middle boy,” she explained.

‘And I looked at Prince Charles like, what are you doing? And he said, “Come on, Julie, a silver spoon never hurt anyone.”

Bishop said she got to know Charles well, especially in her role with The Prince’s Trust.

“He is extremely intelligent, has a very inquiring mind and asks a lot of questions, is incredibly knowledgeable,” she said.

She also commented on the King’s “sharp and deep interest in all things Australian,” as evidenced by his school years in Geelong and many visits Down Under.

Bishop said the Trust, which the then Prince of Wales had set up in 1976 with his £7,400 ($8,600) severance payment from the Royal Navy, had helped set up 100 business ventures set up by veterans.

The charity, which also has offices in Canada and New Zealand, also helps young people and stakeholders create a sustainable future.
