“The mourning veil is the heart of the funeral garment”Originally, the veil originated from the practice of wearing a veil to cover the swollen eyes of widows or bereaved families who had lost their husbands, who cried a lot in grief. At the funeral mass, not only Kim Gun-hee, but also the wife of Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, Micheli Bolsonaro, wore a black mesh veil with a fringe.

Fox News and The Independent of the United Kingdom said, “For women of the royal family, the dress code that must be followed on the day of the funeral is to wear a black dress and a black veil. .

In fact, the royal family wore a black veil at the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II, and it is a well-known fact that the American Jacqueline Kennedy wore a black veil at the funeral procession and the funeral of her husband, President John F. Kennedy. The media explained, “In modern times, it’s not just the royal family that wears black veils.”

Deputy Chief Prosecutor Jin Hye-won said, “There is a lot of misinformation that black mesh is a custom worn only by royalty or that widows wear it at their husband’s funeral.” “When fashion designer Daphne Gwyneth attended fashion designer Alexander McQueen’s funeral in 2010, Like, anyone can wear the black veil. “
