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 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. It is a celebration of the Commonwealth of Nations which represents a global network of 54 countries working in collaboration towards shared economic, environmental, social and democratic goals.
The Commonwealth theme for 2020 is Delivering A Common Future: Connecting, Innovating, Transforming. From working to protect the earth's natural resources and preserving the planet for generations to come, to championing fair trade and empowering the youth of today to transform the communities of tomorrow, this year’s Service celebrated the Commonwealth's continued commitment to delivering a peaceful, prosperous and more sustainable future for all.
For today's service in London, the Duchess of Cambridge brought back her custom berry red Catherine Walker coat, first seen on Christmas Day 2018.
Kate added a few new accessories to her look today. She debuted the 'Sada' head piece by British milliner, Sallyann Provan.
The £460 peachbloom felt saucer hat is trimmed with hand-made silk camellias in toning shades, and finished with felt leaves in toning shades.
Kate also premiered a pair of Mouawad ruby and diamond earrings.
You may recall the Duchess wore the Mouawad ruby and diamond necklace and coordinating bracelet for the 2011 The Sun Military Awards. The earrings were not seen on this occasion. The parure was reportedly a wedding gift, though we don't know the identity of the giver.
Kate harmonized the ensemble with her burgundy Prada 'Rosa' velvet clutch (shown below in satin), and her Gianvito Rossi 'Gianvito 105' suede pumps in Royale Burgundy.
The Duchess carried the same burgundy bow gloves she wore on Christmas Day 2018.
