The Duchess of Cambridge made a surprise visit to the Imperial War Museum (IWM) in London today to view letters relating to three brothers of her great-grandmother, all of whom fought and died in the First World War.
These documents form part of the IWM’s archive, which provides a means to research, reflect and remember the extraordinary contribution and sacrifice made by so families during the First World War.
Kate also viewed a poppy installation outside the museum ahead of the Armistice centenary on 11 November 2018, marking the end the First World War in 1918.
The Duchess wore a French blue Jenny Packham sheath dress which you might recall from her trip to Canada back in 2016.
The bespoke piece features peaked shoulders, a nipped waist, 3/4 flared sleeves, and flat pointed lapels that extended to the back.
Kate carried a new clutch bag - it is the Mulberry 'Amberley' Clutch in Dark Blush Smooth Calf Leather (£515).
The style is a new addition to the equestrian-inspired 'Amberley' collection which features Mulberry's distinctive Rider's Lock. The chain strap can be fully detached, and it has an optimized interior, with a main compartment, zipped pocket and credit card slots.
She teamed it with her trusty Gianvito Rossi 'Gianvito 105' Praline Suede Pumps.
Kate accessorized with her beloved Sapphire & Diamond Oval Drop Earrings and Cartier Ballon Bleu de Stainless Steel Bracelet Watch.
The Duchess finished the look with a Women of the First World War Poppy Brooch (£29.99) in support of the Royal British Legion.
