UPDATED: Duchess of Cambridge Sombre in Last Years DVF Coat for Remembrance Sunday

The Duchess of Cambridge attended her second Remembrance Sunday ceremony at the Cenotaph this morning.


The Duchess was joined on the balcony in Whitehall by the Countess of Wessex and Sir Timothy Laurence, the husband of the Princess Royal. The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall were unable to attend as they are in New Zealand on a Jubilee tour.


Remembrance Day (also known as Poppy Day or Armistice Day) is a memorial day observed in commonwealth countries since the end of World War I to remember the members of their armed forces who have died during conflicts. The day was specifically dedicated by King George V in 1919 as a day of remembrance.


The Royal Navy, Scots Guards, Royal Marines and Lifeguards were all on parade.

ITV's Georgina Brewer shared a photo of Private Derek Derenalagi who lost both legs in Afghanistan. It was an emotional day for Derek who said he feels "lucky to be alive".

The red remembrance poppy has become a familiar emblem of Remembrance Day due to the poem "In Flanders Fields". These poppies bloomed across some of the worst battlefields of Flanders in World War I, their vibrant red colour an appropriate symbol for the blood spilled in the war.

One can purchase a poppy brooch, lapel pin or pendent at The Royal British Legion's Online Shop. Kate regularly wears her £25 Buckley Brooch, most recently at the St Andrews dinner.

The first stroke of Big Ben at 11 am and the firing of a gun from Horse Guards Parade by The King's Troop Royal Horse Artillery marked the start of two minutes silence. The Queen, then laid the first wreath, followed by Prince Philip, Prince William, the Duke of York, the Earl of Wessex, the Princess Royal, Prince Michael of Kent and Field Marshal Lord Guthrie of Craigiebank.

Kate wore black - a sombre colour for a sombre occasion. The Duchess chose to recycle the Diane Von Furstenburg coat she wore to last years service.


The wool coat is from the Autumn/Winter 2008 Collection and has detachable cuffs and collar. I thought it an excellent idea to re-wear last year's coat, obviously done to detract attention from Kate's sartorial choices ensuring the focus stays on the ceremony.

Kate also recycled her black Philip Treacy wide brimmed hat, having originally worn it to Prince William's passing out parade at Sandhurst in December 2006 (with many thanks to the wonderful Anna) I would be very interested to know how she stores her pieces and keeps them in such pristine condition.


Kate accessorised with her Annoushka Baroque Pearl Earrings. The 18ct yellow gold and white pearl earrings are available for £295.

Kate wore her poppy (the aforementioned Buckley Brooch) to commemorate the life of her late grandfather Peter Middleton who trained pilots in Calgary during the second world war.



The Duchess wore the Cornelia James Pure Wool Gloves With Side Bow. (It was originally thought the gloves were by BLACK, a simple mistake as Cornelia James is a supplier of BLACK and they sell the gloves in Satin Lycra)  The gloves are available for £52 in black, winter white, dark grey, chocolate, taupe caramel, pink, petrol and plum.

  1. What a lovely coat and what a lovely recycle -- seems such a respectful act to recycle -- a sort of mini remembrance act and a sober decision for such a sober occasion.

    Can't believe the hat got dusted off again and for such a different occasion from William's passing out parade. But the big full heart is so much a part of remembrance too. She really knows how to wear a hat and looks very beautiful in the whole outfit.

    I don't think black is always an easy colour to carry off but she wears it very well.

  2. Catherine looks beautiful as always. The coat is so pretty and as you said, a wise choice to recycle. When I saw her hat, I immediately recognized from the passing out parade at Sandhurst. I wonder the same thing, how she stores her pieces and keeps them looking perfect?

    Thank you for another wonderful post! Remembering all the men and women here in the US and throughout the world who have sacrificed so much in serving their country.

  4. Hi there. She does not look happy today. It is a sombre moment, but her eyes and general facial expression almost look sad/anger/had enough. Anyway, she still is very beautiful. Any reason why in the last 5 or 6 public engagements (except for the reception at the palace) she has recycled her clothes? It's almost like she ran out of clothes (I know it's not the case). Great pics :)

    1. I suspect the countess said something cruel to the duchess, because Camilla wasn't there as a buffer. I remember when the countess said horrible things about the family in her interview with the fake sheik. Also, do you remember when the countess exploded her protection officer before the royal wedding? The last time the duchess looked like this was when eugenie almost pushed kate down the stairs (Kate's 1st Christmas with royals) what do you think?

      Hello, Roza! I've never heard anything about the Countess' interview nor that Eugenie tried to push Catherine down the stairs!! How do you know all this things? Thank you, I'm very curious right now!

      Delete
    3. I really don't think Sophie said anything cruel to Kate at all. Daily Mail website has a picture of Kate and Sophie smiling at each other. Kate looks sad because it's appropriate for the occasion and she's taking it very seriously. Who knows, she's probably also thinking about Prince Harry and worried for his safety. In any case it's very understanding that she looks sad.

      Delete
    4. Roza - I would strongly suggest those rumours are just that - rumours.

      It is considered completely correct that Kate looked so solemn today (as did the other royals) It's an incredibly emotional day.

      I always think it interesting how we try to read things into how people look. If Sophie would have said to Kate "we were all ready to leave and then my son's tooth fell out (or what ever) and made a small laugh with one another. Some of the photographers would have caught them laughing and said they were insensitive and disrespectful. Like when the Queen walked in after her James Bond entrance at the Olympics she was very serious looking and got some bad raps for that. But I read that she was very concerned about it all. I'm sure Harry is on all of their minds as is all who have served in Armed Forces.

    7. Hi Ana - if you search on youtube, you can find a video of the royals at Christmas last year. There's a very brief incident when they're all walking down the stairs, Kate seems to pause, and Eugenie walks past her, and I guess their shoulders sort of brush. I wouldn't call it a push at all.

      I posted a comment earlier with a link to the video, but I think it didn't get posted because the video was made by some VERY anti-Kate people. It just happened to be the first one I thought of, but I'm sure there are others out there - sorry, Charlotte!

    It is not really the occasion for saying too much about what the ladies are wearing--the rules are black, warm and a poppy and they all did it very well.
    Must say though I remembered this hat when you did the coats blog and hoped she'd wear it again as in my opinion it suits her so well; her face is fully visible and we can see her earrings.
    I thought both she and the Countess looked very emotional, except for smiling at their husbands who almost fell over their swords when returning to the Home Office.

    2. I've wondered, since I've seen so many pics of her wiping her nose, if she may be sick? I would think with so many engagements, eventually a day comes when a royal has to do their duty even if they have the flu or something.

      May not be the case today, like Jean says I'm sure it was an emotional day. But I wonder if it ever happens and we don't know?

  14. Hi, Charlotte,

    Just listening to the last of the gun and fly past salutes here in Toronto, Canada where we celebrate Remembrance Day on Nov. 11 at 11am as you do in Britain.

    It's a gorgeous day here-the last gasp of warmth (14C/60F) before the cold really sets in for the winter.

    Many thanks for acknowledging "In Flanders Fields", the beautiful poem written by a Canadian WW1 officer as he rode in a field ambulance with the body of a dead comrade after 2nd Battle of Ypres.

    I'm honoured to have a great uncle who served throughout WW1 as a medic/stretcher bearer and survived. My husband's great uncle survived Ypres, The Somme and Passchendale- almost unheard of. Canadians were renowned for their front line service-and this is just WW1!

    Our troops coming back from Afghanistan are a current reminder of the awesome bravery of Canadians, Brits and Americans, as well as all the other nations who serve.

    Kate looks lovely and appropriate for the day. I love that hat. I wonder if another tour might be in the works so she is recycling clothing as new outfits are a tour essential-anybody's guess!?

    All the best and thanks for your amazing coverage!

    Your Canadian Friend

  15. Excellent choice! I'm delighted to see Kate re-wear last year's coat, thus taking at least some attention away from herself, and furthermore it's a very pretty piece and appropriate for the occasion. I love the hat, and as others, I wish Kate would wear this hat style more often, instead of a fascinator or a really tiny hat. I'm impressed that she had this hat since 2006, it looks brand new - I have noticed this too with some of her clothes that she has had for a longer time, they always look impeccable. Sophie looked very nice and appropriate too.
    And thank you for telling us more about Remembrance Day. It seems to be a very important day in the Commonwealth countries and it’s good to see that. It’s not observed here in Austria so I only learnt about it on this blog. Here we already had a similar day, All Saints’ and All Souls’ Day on Nov. 1st and 2nd.
    Thanks for another great post!
    PS: I just have to add that Downton Abbey will be shown for the first time on Austrian TV, starting this evening... I’ve read several enthusiastic comments about it on this blog so I’m excited to see it myself!

  17. Kate recycled again, i wish we could see the outfit in it's entirety. Charlotte, I noticed the hat after you mentioned how much you liked Kate's look from prince William's passing out parade.

    1. Interesting comment re Camilla stealing Sophie's limelight.

      I've always thought that none of the royals steal limelight from each other - its down to how the media regard them.

      Catherine is #1 because she is young and slim and these days, the media think this is important; Camilla is slightly controversial and anyway, she's the wife of the next monarch and therefore rates highly. MEdia are v interested in how her ratings are +/-; that leaves poor Sophie out on a limb. She works hard, looks the part, balances her duties as Mum and Royal but the press are not interested. NOTHING to do with either Camilla or Catherine for that matter.

      We really should not confuse media bias reporting and reality. In the UK in particular they are really worlds apart.

  20. I also like last years hat better. I sort of would like to see Kate retire some of the bigger hats she wore in the past. Was there any info on Princess Anne being in attendance since you mention Sir Timothy Lawrence (her husband) was seen with Sophie and Kate at Whitehall?

    I really would like to see the red poppies sold again for Veterans Day (what the US changed the name to from it's former Armistice Day. Used to be a fund raiser for Veterans Of Foreign Wars, but have not seen them sold for a good 15- 20 yrs now. I used to always buy one and wear it proudly for weeks before today's date came up. I am the daughter of a US WWII Navy Lt. and am very proud of our various celebrations in honor of our veterans as well as those who are currently serving active duty - which is why the name here in the US was changed to Veterans Day, so as to incorporate not just the deceased armed forces but also the living as well to. A lot of restaurants in the US today offer free meals to all vets and those currently serving in active duty.

    3. Actually, poppies are used in the U.S. by the V.F.W.

    4. Dougies girl you are absolutely right. In fact, in Northeast Iowa a young girl is also selected to be Miss Poppy. She is usually the one to offer the first poppy to someone, such as the Mayor. She would also ride in the Memorial Day parade.

    5. The paper poppies are widely distributed throughout the middle part of the U.S. the weekend leading up to Memorial Day! Everyone donates to the VFW or the American Legion and wears the poppy to honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice. I don't ever recall them being sold at Veterans' Day. As for Kate, love the coat, love the brooch, hate that huge hat. I love Sophie's hat and I also love the hat Kate wore last year. Glad to see her not smiling. It's not exactly the time or the place to be giggling.

      Hee Hee! It is so ironic, because, although the term "recycled" does not bother me at all, I was just thinking about this very thing. I was wondering at what point clothes become recycled vs. just wearing your clothes again. I have a handful of nice clothing I wear for church and other dress up occasions, and I just wear them again and again. I wouldn't ever think to say that I am recycling them. I studied linguistics some in college and this type of word usage is really fascinating to me. Interesting! Before I started reading about Kate I had not heard the term used in respect to clothing. Probably I just hadn't read about famous people much before. Anyway, it is funny that I was just contemplating these thoughts when someone posted on it.
