Following today’s ceremony at the Cenotaph, the Queen led the British Royal Family at a remembrance service at Westminster Abbey to commemorate the centenary of Armistice Day at the close of World War I. Personally I love it when the family gathers at the Abbey – even if it does often signify a solemn occasion – as the optics do such a good job of representing the continuity of the monarchy without saying a word.
Some photos from inside the Abbey:
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were among the first to arrive. Meghan is wearing a navy peplum ensemble – I haven’t seen an ID for it yet, but I’ll udpate if and when I see one.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge soon followed, with Kate repeating her green and black velvet trimmed Catherine Walker coat. This was first debuted as a double-header in March 2017 – first for the St Patrick’s Day Irish Guards engagement and then for Kate’s arrival look when the two carried out a mini-tour in Paris.
Meanwhile, both the Queen and the Duchess of Cornwall chose what can only be called “royal” purple.
That’s it for today – tomorrow I’ll catch us up on a couple of Kate’s recent engagements that I missed. Happy Sunday!
