The Duke and Duchess arrived with Prince Harry at The Sun Military Awards (also known as The Millies) in Central London.

The Awards are held annually to honour members of the British Armed Forces and civlians involved with the forces.  Created by Prince Charles and sponsored by The Sun newspaper, awards include ‘Best Unit’, ‘Best Recruit’ and ‘Life Saver Award’.

The Duchess looked fantastic in her black strapless Alexander McQueen with matching Jimmy Choo ‘Cosmic’ black pumps (which are still available online for $695) and black clutch.

InStyle UK is reporting the velvet bow clutch designed by Jaime Mascaro from Pretty Ballerinas.  No surprise here the clutch is already out of stock!

The beautiful matching diamond bracelet and necklace she wore are rumoured to be a wedding gift.  The Daily Mail is reporting they were from a “family friend who wishes to remain anonymous”.

Obviously, I am loving this look.  We don’t often see Kate in black… but this is just fabulous!  The pink lips, and natural make-up (not too much eye liner this time… people will no doubt comment on the eye brows though!) looks fresh and stunning  Again, not to over the top, still classy and elegant and with just enough sparkle.   My only comment (especially on the above photo)… nail polish would have finished the look perfectly!

Just a few hours prior to the glamorous evening, the two were seeing driving to Buckingham Palace (along with numerous other senior royals) to attend The Queen’s Christmas Lunch.  Kate was wearing a simple red coat (perhaps the same one we saw in Copenhagen…) and looked all smiles on her way to her first Royal Christmas
