Kate Middleton Is Appropriately Sombre At Remembrance Service

One thing is clear: Kate Middleton knows how to dress for the occasion.

On Sunday, the Duchess of Cambridge cut a striking—if sombre—figure in a black Alexander McQueen coat and matching hat during a service of remembrance at the Cenotaph in Whitehall, London.

The pregnant 32-year-old looked on from the foreign office balcony as husband Prince William and the Queen laid a wreath at the Cenotaph alongside other members of the Royal Family, veterans and Prime Minister David Cameron.

During the service, Prince George's mum looked visibly moved as she stood beside the Duchess of Cornwall and the Countess of Wessex. Catherine's late grandfather Peter Middleton, who passed away in 2010, trained Canadian pilots during the Second World War.

On Saturday, Duchess Kate and Prince William visited the Valero Pembroke Refinery in Wales just days after returning from a relaxing vacation at Balmoral Castle in Scotland. The couple are expecting their second child in April, 2015.
