Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge (AKA Kate Middleton) attended the National Service of Remembrance this Sunday in an elegant all-black outfit. The socially-distanced service at The Cenotaph honoured the fallen with a moment of silence and laying of wreaths.
Kate paid her respects in a special military-inspired custom coat by Catherine Walker, featuring black tassels on the shoulders and mother of pearl buttons. Black rope detailing added to the smart, uniform-inspired look. While Kate's exact coat is not for sale, as it is custom, high street brands like Monsoon offer similar versions.
Kate kept warm in sleek black gloves, and adorned her coat with three red poppies. She added a velvet Philip Treacy hat on top of her beautiful updo. The black pillbox hat featured an elaborate statement bow. And the finishing touch? A pair of dainty pearl drop earrings from the Queen's jewellery collection.
In transit to the service, Kate was seen wearing a simple black face mask. The mask is by children's brand Amaia Kids, who also make face masks for adults. Kate is a fan of the masks, and has been photographed in a few of the floral print versions on different occasions this year.
Photos of the special day were shared to the Kensington Royal Instagram account. In one post shared to followers around the world, the caption explained that the day is "to remember and honour those who have sacrificed themselves to secure and protect our freedom."
