This morning members of the royal family attended the annual Remembrance Sunday commemorations at the Cenotaph in Whitehall, London. The Duchess of Cambridge attended the ceremony and watched the service from the Foreign Office balcony alongside Princess Alexandra and The Countess of Wessex.
Kate wore a new black coat by Dolce & Gabbana for the solemn occasion.
She picked out the 'Collarless Long Coat' (US$4,500) from the Fall/Winter 2016 collection of the Italian fashion house. The black wool and silk-blend double breasted button-down coat features a collarless design, round neckline, buttonhole on the front, front flap pockets, long sleeves, pleated waist, mid-calf length and straight hem.
Kate teamed it with her black felt Philip Treacy hat.
The wide-brimmed chapeau was first worn at William's Passing-Out Parade in 2006, and again at the 2012 Remembrance Sunday service.
Other familiar items included her Oscar de la Renta Pearl Sun Star Button Earrings, and a cluster of Royal British Legion paper poppies.
We got a glimpse of a new handbag. Kate carried the Emmy London 'Natasha' Jet & Gold clutch (£350) - a style she already owns in a few different colourways.
There was also another déjà vu debut. Kate wore the black Cornelia James 'Beatrice' gloves (£70) - a style she already owns in navy.
The highlight of today's look was Kate's new faux bob hairstyle. The iillusion was created by carefully tucking her long locks under and pinning them back just above her shoulders. The style definitely suits the Duchess, and perhaps she's testing out the new style before making the decision to cut her hair short!
