Tonight members of the British royal family got all together to pay their respect to those who sacrificed their lives in Britain’s military conflicts. The event marks 100 years since the Armistice which brought World War I to a close.
Kate Middleton wore a black midi-length Roland Mouret dress with an asymmetrical neckline, as she was joined by Prince William. She paired the look with Jimmy Choo pumps and had on three poppies, likely in memory of her three relatives who fought and died in the War. Her brunette locks held their signature bouncy curls. Duchess Kate went with a simple and glowing makeup look for the evening.
This is a huge event for the royals as all of them were attending, including Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the Queen, and Prince Charles and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been guests of honour at the service for the past three years.
The Duchess of Cambridge will also attend two Remembrance Day services tomorrow with Prince William, the Queen, and the rest of the royal family: one in the morning at the Cenotaph and one in the evening at Westminster Abbey. Stay tuned for more photos!
It has been a very busy week for Kate as she and Prince William attended earlier this week the Tusk Conservation Awards at the Banqueting Hall in London. The reception recognises the extraordinary work of those working to protect Africa’s precious wildlife. The royal couple met with the three award nominees, Tusk supporters and sponsors during the reception. The Duke has been royal patron of Tusk since 2005.
The organisation has pioneered successful conservation action in Africa for almost thirty years, protecting wildlife, empowering communities and advancing the frontline in the fight against the illegal wildlife trade. William presented three awards to some extraordinary people whose work might otherwise go unnoticed.The three nominations for 2018 are Dickson Kaelo, Force Ngwire and Vincent Opyene. Dickson Kaelo leads the Kenya Wildlife Conservancies Association. Its mission is to work with landowners and communities to sustainably conserve and manage wildlife and their habitat outside formal protected areas for the benefit of the people of Kenya
For the occasion Kate re-wore her Jenny Packham aqua gown.
