Kate joins Royal Family for Remembrance Sunday, repeats DVF coat & Philip Traecy hat

Along with other prominent figures of the Royal Family, Kate attended the Remembrance Sunday parade at the Cenotaph, in Whitehall, London to honour and remember those who have died at war for our country.

The Queen led the ceremony by laying a wreath at the Cenotaph, then other members of the Royal Family, politicians, military chiefs and servicemen and women lay tributes too. As Big Ben chimed eleven, the thousands of spectators at the memorial joined in with a two-minute silence to pay their respects for the fallen.

Wearing his RAF uniform, Prince William laid a wreath and the Cenotaph, as Kate looked on from the balcony of the Foreign Office alongside Sophie The Countess of Wessex and Princess Anne’s husband Vice Admiral Sir Timothy Lawrence.

Kate wore a black wool double-breasted coat:

It’s the Diane Von Furstenburg “Lio” coat.  It was from the designer’s 2008 collection.

Kate’s hat is by Philip Treacy.  You might remember this particular piece from Prince William’s Passing Out Ceremony at Sandhurst, back in 2006?

Kate wore her Annoushka pearl earrings:

You might spot a poppy from The Royal British Legion charity.  It’s the “Buckley Brooch” and it costs £24.99, you can buy it from their website – and yes, they ship internationally.

Just popping out from under her cuff, you may spy a pair Cornelia James pure wool glove with side bow.
