Kate in Temperley London coat for 2016 Festival of Remembrance

This evening, William and Kate joined the Queen and other members of the Royal Family at this year’s Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall.

The Festival of Remembrance is an annual event that pays tribute to all the victims of war and conflict.

You may recall the Duke and Duchess made their debut at last year’s performance?

On to Kate’s outfit now.  Kate chose Temperley London’s Callas Evening Coat.

Big thanks to my friend Anna for the ID!) It’s from the designer’s Pre-fall 2014 collection.

Temperley London Callas Evening Coat

The Callas Evening Coat is made from a wool blend fabric that features a textured, embroidered pattern.  It features a high neckline and a button fastening on the front.

We’re not sure how much it retailed for on Temperley London’s website, but Brand Alley had it for £380 ($479 USD).  It was on sale from £995 ($1,254 USD).  As the coat is from a past season, it is no longer available.

Kate carried her Pretty Ballerinas velvet bow clutch bag.

You may recall she carried the bag on two other occasions: to the Sun Military Awards in 2011 and War Horse premiere in 2012.

The company no longer sells the bow clutch bag.  If you’re looking for something similar, L.K. Bennett a black suede clutch with an oversized bow.  It’s a very close match:

For the performance, Kate chose a pair of black suede heels with pointed toes.

It looks like she’s wearing her Gianvito Rossi 105 pumps.  She’s worn them quite regularly this year.

In some photos, it appears the Duchess is wearing her Oscar de la Renta earrings, first debuted last month:
