When Ms Bishop worked as a politician she was known for her fashion sense and designer clothing.

Last year, she shared her heartache after being separated from her partner due to the coronavirus border restrictions between WA and NSW.

Ms Bishop has been in Perth, while her partner David Panton has been in Sydney.

"The first place I will go is to Sydney to see David," Ms Bishop told The Daily Telegraph in September.

"We FaceTime. It isn’t great but it is all you can do because he can’t get in here (WA) and I can’t go there without having to get an exemption. It is very difficult but I know a lot of families have been separated in this way, it is challenging."

While she spent much of her career travelling, especially while she was Foreign Minister, Ms Bishop doesn't miss working in politics.

She said that while it was a great honour to represent Australia as a member of parliament and as Foreign Minister, she is "loving" life in the private sector.
