Today Kate Middleton stood alongside the Queen on the balcony of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, as millions fell silent to mark 100 years since the end of the First World War. Today marks 100 years since the signing of the treaty which ended the battle on the Western Front of the First World War at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918.
The Duchess, all dressed in black, was visibly fighting tears back as she watched Prince Charles, William and Harry also pay their respects. She recently learned about her great-grandmother’s three brothers who died in World War I. She wore a black coat with a white collar. The coat is likely a version of a previous McQueen design. The Duchess wore three paper poppies representing her three relatives who fought and died in World War One. She also wore the Royal British Legion’s ‘Women Of The First World War Brooch.’
Kate has attended the service every year since she married Prince William in 2011 – scroll down to see what she has worn in the past seven years.
