  • The Duchess of Cambridge wore a navy Temperley London coat and matching James Lock & Co beret for Sunday's commemorative service in Central London

    Kate Middleton proudly watched on while her husband Prince William laid a wreath at the Cenotaph in London’s Whitehall to mark Remembrance Sunday yesterday.

    The 31-year-old Duchess of Cambridge watched the moving memorial proceedings unfold from the nearby Foreign Office balcony, with the service taking place to commemorate members of the Armed Forces who lost their lives in the decades since the First World War.

    Wrapping up against the November cold, Kate wore a regal navy Temperley London button up coat featuring quilted satin panels and her favourite silhouette – a slimline fluted skirt.

    The Duchess accessorised her warm winter coat with a matching Fairy Tale beret by Sylvia Fletcher for Lock and Company, an elegant pair of Cornelia James gloves with bow detail and a dainty pair of pearl drop earrings by Annoushka.

    Wearing her long brown hair down in loose barrel curls, Kate finished off her look with dark, defined eyes, a subtle pink lip and a rosy blush. Gorgeous.

    The mum-of-one was joined on her viewing platform by the Countess of Wessex and retired British naval officer Sir Timothy Laurence as the trio observed a two minute silence as part of Remembrance Sunday.

    Other senior royals present at the special commemorative service included The Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Harry and the Duke of Cambridge, who joined the monarch and politicians, military leaders, veterans and serving personnel in laying wreaths of poppies at the Central London monument.
