Three year's after wearing the gorgeous coat (seen above), Kate made a couple of changes to the ensemble—this time around, she added a Lock & Co. wide brimmed hat and pearl drop earrings.
The image of the three women on the balcony this year was striking as they looked down at their husbands' Prince William, Prince Charles and Prince Edward as they marked a moment of silence.
But naturally, the most notable detail about the royals in attendance was actually the absence of The Queen, who is usually a permanent fixture at the emotional event.
Yesterday, the palace shared a statement explaining that the Queen was unable to attend due to a back sprain. The statement reiterated the Queen's "great regret" and "disappointment" in missing the service.
"It is obviously incredibly unfortunate timing, and nobody regrets [The Queen’s] absence today more deeply than [Her Majesty] herself," a source told the publication.
On Saturday evening, Kate Middleton and Prince William again joined Prince Charles, Duchess Camilla and more royals at the Royal Albert Hall for the annual Festival Of Remembrance.
For the event, the 39-year-old Duchess wore a black tweed jacket paired with a matching long skirt. She wore her hair in simple loose waves and added a pair of pearl earrings to finish the look.
Kate's all-black ensembles are in line with the royal tradition in which black clothes are worn in occasions of mourning.
