Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, looked every inch the stylish couple despite attending the somber Royal Festival of Remembrance ceremony at Royal Albert Hall in London on Saturday.
As usual, the Duchess looked flawless in a simple black Callas Evening Coat from Temperley London’s Prefall 2014 Collection with buttons and a customary poppy pinned to her lapel. She polished off the pretty style with blown out, curled tresses, a black clutch and a set of pumps. Prince William looked dapper in a suit.
The royal couple were joined by several other members of the royal family including, Queen Elizabeth, the Duke of Edinburgh, the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall, Prince Andrew, Prince Edward and his wife the Countess of Wessex.

This year’s Remembrance festival marks the anniversaries of the centenaries of the Battle of the Somme and the Battle of Jutland, the 25th anniversary of the Gulf War and the 80th anniversary of the first flight of the Supermarine Spitfire.
Prince Harry was noticeably absent from the evening, but reports that his girlfriend, actress Meghan Markle, being in town may have had to do with that. Markle was spotted outside of Kensington Palace earlier in the week, so perhaps Prince Harry took a night off from his duties to share the city with his new ladylove.
Earlier in the day, Harry was spotted at the Rose and Poppy Gates to pay tribute to those who had lost their lives in WW1.
Talk about a busy day for the royals!
