  • The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (AKA Prince William and Kate Middleton) visit Westminster Abbey on the National Day of Reflection to mark the one-year anniversary of the first lockdown in the UK

  • Kate and William pay tribute to staff, volunteers and those who have lost their lives as a result of the pandemic, with the Abbey now turned into a COVID-19 vaccination centre

  • For the occasion, Kate wore a white coat by Catherine Walker & Co, with a scalloped edge, lace detailing and brown suede pumps

Kate Middleton and Prince William just retraced their own steps by paying a visit to London's Westminster Abbey - the location of their 2011 royal wedding - for the National Day of Reflection, marking the one-year anniversary since the UK's first lockdown. The Abbey now looks quite different from how it did on their wedding day, with the site now converted into a COVID-19 vaccination centre.

"On the National #DayofReflection, one year since the first lockdown in the UK, The Duke and Duchess took part in a moment of reflection at Westminster Abbey, following their visit to the Abbey’s vaccination centre," reads a post shared on Kensington Palace's Instagram. "Today we remember all those who have lost their lives as a result of the pandemic over the last twelve months."

For the engagement, Kate wore an elegant white (or, technically, ivory) knee-length Catherine Walker & Co coat complete with a scalloped edge and subtle lace appliqué across the front.

Kate wore her Annoushka Ducas pearl drop earrings in the same hue, before finishing the look with a tan suede clutch bag and matching pumps - likely the exact pieces the Duchess wore for a visit to East London, coupled with a camel coat, late last week.

As for her hair, Kate swapped her signature blow-out for a pinned back look - a more practical choice given the royals wore disposable facemasks for the engagement in line with social distancing guidelines.
