Portugal. The Queen in Question was Inez De Castro ( no relation to Fidel) it happened in I believe l357- her body ( intact largely) was exhumed- some cosmetic work done ( of course) and she was dressed in her royal robes and all were compelled and invited to kiss the hand of the dead queen. after this morbid ceremony- she was, of course re-buried. Mortuary enthronements of deceased Queens were quite common at one time and this was common in the Orient, where upright arrangements and even coffins ( there are different types) are common. In Western civilizations, of course, the Crown was removed to a museum or armory ( like the Tower of London) before the Queen was actually buried. often at the viewing or Lying in state- the Crown was placed on a pillow - not actually worn by the deceased. there were various customs for different countries- akin to customs involving memorials for Knights and warriors. ( where comes the old Custer- and Mansfield- angle- (died with their boots on) a mortuary statue of a knight was shown with the boots on- if he died in actual combat- and had not time to kick them off! If he died in the equivalent of a field hospital, maybe the boots would not be shown. the medieval morbid imagination was quite fascinating, in some countries , deceased people were buried with seasonably-appropriate apparel- as in Russia, If Catherine died in the wintr- she may have been buried in her Tiger-fur robs, which do exist in a Western collector- wonder where she got "em.

What is proper attire for the Queen invited back to crown their successors?

If a successor was being crowned, it would mean that the previous monarch had died or abdicated. So a Queen would not be invited back to crown their successor because she would be dead (or had abdicated). However, HM Queen Elizabeth II did crown her son, Prince Charles, as Prince of Wales, at Caernarfon Castle, Wales, in 1969.
