The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were in South Yorkshire today to open McLaren Automotive's new Composites Technology Centre in Rotherham, before travelling to Barnsley’s local Centrepoint hostel.
At Centrepoint, Kate and William joined volunteers and young people that use the service, to prepare lunch in the hostel’s kitchen.
Kate wore the blue Eponine belted coatdress which she debuted in January 2017 for a visit to the Anna Freud Centre. More outfit details below.
COATDRESS: Blue belted coat dress by Eponine.
HANDBAG: Smythson Panama Purse with Strap in Navy (£450).
EARRINGS: Sapphire & Diamond Oval Drop Earrings
WATCH: Cartier Ballon Bleu Wristwatch.
Two beautiful family photographs have been released by Clarence House ahead of Prince Charles' 70th birthday tomorrow.
The photos of the Prince of Wales with his family were taken by Chris Jackson in September on the grounds of Clarence House.
Last week, the Daily Express newspaper released a photo of The Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Louise alongside his doting grandfather Prince Charles. The photo comes from the BBC documentary, “Prince, Son and Heir: Charles at 70.”
In the clip and photos Kate wore a navy polka dot dress by Alessandra Rich (£1,750) - a piece from the designer's SS 18 collection.
It is a vintage-inspired dress cut from polka-dot silk crepe de chine that falls to a pleated midi skirt.
The Italian made garment features long sleeves, button through front, and contrast spread collar and cuff detail. It was carried by Net-A-Porter and Moda Operandi.
Kate accessorized with her Sapphire & Diamond Oval Drop Earrings.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge joined the Queen and other members of the royal family at Westminster Abbey this evening for a service to mark the Centenary of the Armistice.
The Duchess brought back the forest green Catherine Walker double-breasted coat with velvet trims.
The piece was first worn for the 2017 St Patrick’s Day Irish Guards parade, and then later the same day for arrival in Paris.
Tonight, Kate debuted a custom Jane Taylor crescent moon headband in black silk velvet. There is a similar style on the milliner's website for £890.
She carried the black Jimmy Choo 'Celeste' velvet clutch, and on her feet were a matching pair of Jimmy Choo 'Romy' 100 pumps.
The Duchess wore her Cassandra Goad Cavolfiore Pearl Stud Earrings.
She was also wearing her Cartier Ballon Bleu wristwatch.
Kate completed the look with a Royal British Legion 'The Poppy Collection ® Large Brooch Gold Tone' brooch (£24.99).
This morning, members of the royal family gathered for 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 central balcony alongside Her Majesty the Queen, and Camila, Duchess of Cornwall.
Catherine wore a new bespoke piece from her go-to designer Alexander McQueen.
The military-inspired design is a fusion of a couple McQueen styles, namely the two shown below. The bodice and inset waistband are similar to those on the Military Jacket (on the left), while the contrast collar and epaulets resemble those seen on the Military Jacket with Lace Inserts shown on the right.
Kate donned a new black felt hat - a custom version of Lock & Co's 'Abney' style (£795) which is available in burgundy and brown leopard print. I have edited the stock image colour to show it in black.
The chapeau is an Autumn/Winter version of Lock & Co's best selling 'Lion Tamer' hat which Kate also owns.
The Duchess wore her Cassandra Goad Cavolfiore Pearl Stud Earrings, and topped off the look with her Royal British Legion 'Women of the First World War' Poppy Brooch (£29.99) and three paper poppies - possibly one for each of her great-great uncles who were killed in the Great War.
Kate wore her hair up in a braided chignon which was held together with a hair net.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended the Festival of Remembrance this evening.
The Festival commemorates all those who have lost their lives in conflicts and it is usually attended by the Royal Family. It is organized by the Royal British Legion and is held every year on the eve of Remembrance Sunday.
William and Kate joined the Queen, and other senior members of the Royal Family at London's Royal Albert Hall for the British Legion's traditional televised service.
As expected, the Duchess wore an all-black ensemble. She debuted a black Roland Mouret asymmetric neck dress (£1,605).
It is made of 100% wool with a stretch silk lining, and the fitted midi dress features elbow-length sleeves with a belled cuff, and an exposed back zipper. It has sold out but was carried by Farfetch and Stylebop.
Kate accessorized with new pieces by Jimmy Choo. She carried the 'Celeste' clutch in black velvet (US$1,550). She also owns this style in bordeaux suede, ballet pink suede, and navy suede.
On her feet were the Jimmy Choo 'Romy' 100 pumps (US$895) in a matching black velvet. Kate also owns this style in nude patent leather, and burgundy velvet.
It's been suggested that Kate's new earrings are the Quatar Diamond and Pearl earrings on loan from the Queen, however I don't think they are a match.
They closely resemble the J.Crew Pearl and crystal earrings ($68).
Another possibility is the LK Bennett 'Carolina' Earrings (£60). We will have to wait for better pics or a re-wear to confirm the ID!
Kate did however borrow Her Majesty's pearl and diamond brooch which she topped with three paper poppies - possibly one for each of her great-great uncles who were killed in the Great War.
It is the forth consecutive year Kate has attended the performance. Below we see her in 2015 wearing a black lace Dolce & Gabbana dress, in 2016 she wore a Temperley London 'Callas' evening coat, and last year she debuted a custom Catherine Walker coat.
