Kate Middleton Recycles Dione Von Furstenburg Coat For Remembrance Sunday

And we've seen that Philip Treacy hat before...

By On

It was a solemn day in London yesterday as the royals paid their respects to the members of the Armed Forces who died in action, with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge joining the Queen, Prince Philip and David Cameron at the Cenotaph memorial.

The nation fell silent at 11 o'clock as Prince William, dressed in his RAF uniform, lay a Remembrance Sunday wreath whilst Kate Middleton paid her respects from the balcony alongside the Countess of Wessex.

And to dress up for the sober day, Kate managed to look appropriate and gorgeous as ever in a 2008 Dione von Furstenburg black coat which she wore to last year's Remembrance Sunday.

The double breasted coat is 100% wool and features a detatchable trim to the collar and cuffs – a soutache – to add a touch of that Kate Middleton elegance that we all know and love.

The Duchess of Cambridge's hat is also a recycled fashion hit, a Philip Treacy number in which Kate wore for William's passing out ceremony at Sandhurst back in 2006 which she teamed with a red Armani coat.

And in comparison to last year's appearance, Kate looked noticeably more mature with her half up half down modest hairstyle compared to last year's bouncy 'do and slightly flamboyant Jane Corbett hat with a black bow.

Kate topped the look off with some gorgeous poppy bling with 18-carat gold and red and black crystals, available at Marks & Spencer.
