ROYAL REMEMBRANCE: The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge joined the royal family at a Remembrance Day service on Sunday morning.
The National Service of Remembrance ceremony was held at the Cenotaph memorial monument at London’s Whitehall. The event honors soldiers and members of military who have sacrificed their lives in combat since the World War I.
Kate Middleton donned a black Diane von Furstenberg coat adorned with three red poppies.
She stood next to the Duchess of Cornwall and the Countess of Wessex as they viewed the service from the balcony of the Foreign and Commonwealth building.
Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of Cambridge took part in the service and laid wreaths made from red poppies at the Cenotaph.
Last night the royal family took part in the Royal Festival of Remembrance held at Royal Albert Hall. The duchess joined Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles, the Duchess of Cornwall, Prince Andrew, Prince Edward and the Countess of Wessex.
The festival honored the centenaries of the Battle of the Somme and the Battle of Jutland, the 25th anniversary of the Gulf War as well as the 80th anniversary of the Supermarine Spitfire. The duchess wore a black Temperley coat.
Last week, the young royal attended the U.K. premiere of “A Street Cat Named Bob” at London’s Curzon Mayfair theater. The preview was in support of Action on Addiction, a charity that aids people with drug and alcohol abuse as the Duchess is a royal patron.
The charity works on development, research, prevention and treatments that help families and children suffering with addiction. The duchess is the patron of a number of organizations, in particular ones that assist young children.
