    The Duchess of Cambridge made a surprise appearance at Westminster Abbey on Monday, attending a Service of Commemoration and Thanksgiving for Anzac Day 2022. Anzac Day is a national day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand, commemorating those who lost their lives in the First World War.

    Kate Middleton chose to wear a very special dress for the occasion, and you might have seen it before. The Duchess opted for a white coat dress by Alexander McQueen (one of her favourite fashion brands), which she also wore to Princess Charlotte’s christening back in 2015. Kate paired the designer number with black suede pumps by Gianvito Rossi and a matching black clutch bag by Jenny Packham.

    The royal finished off the look with an ivory tweed headband, looking as chic as ever for the occasion. Kate attended the ceremony with her husband, the Duke of Cambridge, who looked just as smart in a navy suit.
