Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, attended her first Remembrance Sunday ceremony at the Cenotaph at Whitehall, in central London today. She was joined by her husband, the Queen, the Prince of Wales, the Duke of York, the Countess of Wessex and other senior royals. Prime Minister David Cameron was also present.
All of the royal women were wearing black for the “somber” occasion.
Kate followed suit and wore a black double-breasted coat (Diane Von Furstenberg) with two Scarlett poppies attached. She also wore a stylish hat by couture milliner Jane Corbett.
The Mail calls Catherine’s performance at the annual event, which honors Britain’s fallen soldiers since the first world war, “almost faultless.”
