The Duchess of Cambridge attended the Anzac Day Service of Commemoration and Thanksgiving at Westminster Abbey today alongside her brother-in-law Prince Harry, and the Duke of Gloucester.
Anzac Day is a national day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand which marks the anniversary of the Gallipoli landings in 1915 by Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (Anzac's) during the First World War. It now broadly commemorates all Australians and Kiwis “who served and died in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations” and “the contribution and suffering of all those who have served”.
Kate stepped out in a new peacock blue Catherine Walker coatdress.
The custom wool-crepe piece is based off the designer's 'Amber' style featuring a high neck collar, flared skirt and diagonal fastening of covered buttons.
The Duchess also debuted the 'Varick' hat by Rosie Olivia Millinery (£440) - an almond shaped chapeau with curled pheasant feather trim.
Another new addition was a pair of navy bow accented gloves.
At first glance I thought they were the pair she first wore back in 2013 at the Place2Be Forum, but the bow detail is different.
They do however look similar to the black gloves she wore for a visit to the Royal Air Force Wittering base in 2017, and the burgundy gloves she wore on Christmas Day. The brand of the gloves remains a mystery.
Kate offset the peacock hue of the coat with green suede accessories by Emmy London. We saw the return of the 'Rebecca' pumps in greenery suede, first seen at the 2017 St Patrick's Day parade. Today she premiered the 'Natasha' clutch in a matching 'greenery' suede. Both pieces are available via Emmy's bespoke service.
The Duchess chose jewellery by Kiki McDonough, wearing her Blue Topaz and Diamond Drop Earrings, andEden blue topaz flower necklace.
And finally, a closer look at Kate's elegant up-do.
