The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge joined The Queen and senior members of the Royal Family at Westminster Abbey this afternoon for a multi-faith service to observe Commonwealth Day.
Commonwealth Day is a celebration of the Commonwealth of Nations held on the second Monday in March each year. The event is usually attended by the Queen in her role as Head of the Commonwealth. This year's Observance focused on the theme ‘A Connected Commonwealth’ – underlining the opportunities for the people, governments and institutions of this richly diverse family of nations to connect and work together at many levels through far-reaching and deep-rooted networks of friendship and goodwill.
The Duchess looked resplendent in her red Catherine Walker coat and matching slip dress.
The ensemble was a custom design for Kate back in 2014 when she wore it arriving in Wellington, New Zealand. It is based off of the designer's ‘Russian Greatcoat’ featuring a sharply tailored military design with a double-breasted front highlighted by eighteen metal buttons, a high colour, structured shoulders and a flared skirt.
Kate offset the vibrant red coatdress with grey suede accessorises by Emmy London. She carried the 'Natasha' Cinder & Gold clutch (£350).
On her feet were the 'Rebecca' cinder court shoes (£425).
Kate wore a new pair of diamond cluster earrings. Their provenance is unknown.
Also new was a red felt hat with a bow. The milliner is unknown.
