Meghan Markle wasn't the only royal to make a fabulous appearance yesterday, in the run-up to Remembrance Day on 11th November.

Her sister-in-law, Kate Middleton, visited Imperial War Museum in London to officially open two new galleries, The Second World War Galleries and The Holocaust Galleries.

The Duchess also viewed the exhibition 'Generations: Portraits of Holocaust Survivors' which includes the two portraits she took last year to mark 75 years since the end of the Holocaust. She also met with the subjects of her photos, Stephen Frank BEM and Yvonne Bernstein, who she'd pictured with their grandchildren.

Kate kept her attire sober for the occasion, choosing to rewear her favourite military-style blouse by Alexander McQueen, which she's worn several times in the past.

She covered up with a deep blue coat by Hobbs, teamed with navy trousers and matching suede pumps.



Sadly, the blouse is from Alexander McQueen's AW11 collection, so it's long sold out, however you can buy a similar coat to her Hobbs one above.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have changed their Instagram photo to a poppy ahead of Remembrance Sunday.

Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at MoneySavingExpert.com, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
