The Duchess of Cambridge attended a memorial service held at the Cenotaph for Remembrance Sunday, honouring those lost since the First World War.

Attending along with other members of the Royal Family, the Duchess looked solemn has she remembered those soldiers who have given their lives in the fight for freedom around the world.

Wearing a very appropriate long black coat by Diane Von Frustenburg (some may argue she should have worn a British designer – however I really don’t think that is the point on this day), Kate looked the part for this very important occasion. 
I believe Pamela Owen – reporter from The Dialy Mail said it best ”

Kate was dressed in a black double-breasted coat by Diane von Furstenberg that sported two scarlet poppies – a look that had no significance, it just followed a precedent set by other members of the monarchy.

She paired the DVF coat with a (still to be identified) classic black hat and her Kiki McDonough Grace earrings.  Everything was simple and classic, as to not draw too much attention away from the importance of the day.

Remembrance Sunday occurs on the second Sunday of November across the United Kingdom.
