Kate joins Royal Family for 2013 Remembrance Sunday ceremony

This morning Kate joined other prominent figures of the British Royal Family at the Remembrance Sunday ceremony at the Cenotaph in Whitehall, London. The ceremony is held to honour and remember those who have died since the First World War serving our country.

As is tradition, the Queen led the ceremony by laying a wrath at the Cenotaph. Other key members of the Royal Family, politicians, military chiefs and servicemen and women laid tributes too. For those in the UK, you can watch the service in full on the BBC’s website here.

At 11am, Big Ben chimed eleven, and millions of people around the country took part in a two minute silence – an act of respect for the fallen servicemen and women.

Kate watched the proceedings from the balcony of the Foreign Office along with The Countess of Wessex and Admiral Tim Laurence – just as she did last year too.

For the ceremony, Kate wore a gorgeous black coat by Temperley London. Specifically, the Noa style (see below). I think most Kate style-watchers were expecting to Kate to repeat the Diane Von Furstenberg coat she wore to the two previous Remembrance Sunday ceremonies.

Temperley London Noa

The collarless coat is very interesting: it features a satin panel with geometric design at the front.

The coat was for sale until recently at The Outnet, costing £190.50.  It originally retailed for £1,270 full price.

Farfetch also stocked the coat, describing it as follows:

“Black ‘Noa’ coat from Temperley London featuring a high neck, long sleeves, a single breasted front button fastening, a jacquard diamond check design and a pleated hem.”

For those looking for something similar from Temperley London’s current line, the label has a fairly similar black flared coat in stock called the “Colette.” The fabric is different but it has the same feminine silhouette.

Get the look:

Kate wore the Fairy Tale hat by Sylvia Fletcher for Lock and Co, which she’s worn on a number of occasions previously.

Finally, Kate wore her Cornelia James Bow Gloves and her pearl drop earrings by Annoushka.

Steal Kate Middleton's style:



  1. she looks gorgeous that coat by temperley is stunning

  2. Love the coat – it does have a collar on it however – that is known as a Neru collar. They were very popular in 1966-70 in mens wear but keep resurfacing off and on in women’s wear. I however really don’t like her hair – it’s too long and too heavy and the long ringlet curls are not chic and grown up looking as she should be. it’s time for a hair cut Kate!

    • I agree beachgal she should have had an updo and then she wouldn’t have been photographed twirling it as DM did an unfortunate article on that today.

    • shannanigans says:

      Why should she cut her hair because you don’t like how it looks? My mother is nearly 60, and she wears her hair long, and I’ve never thought her childish for her decision to do so.

      Loved the whole ensemble, especially the brooch. It doesn’t look like the same one from last year.
