The Queen doesn't attend many funerals; the last one for a British politician was for Sir Winston Churchill. But this is indeed a fitting tribute to her longest serving Prime Minister, regardless of the controversial politics and regardless of what is often made of the relationship between the two powerful women.
As for the jewels, bow brooches are a standard pick for this sort of thing - certainly something in white is preferred.
