Kate Middleton Gave the Classic Winter Coat a Cool Upgrade

She made an appearance at the Remembrance Day service in bespoke Alexander McQueen.

Another day, another chic coat worn by Kate Middleton.

During her time as a duchess, Middleton has cultivated an extensive outerwear collection, consisting of styles ranging from fancy coat dresses to sporty puffers. And for the Remembrance Day service in London on Sunday morning, the queen of the coats decidedly put a modern spin on the classic winter jacket, wearing a black bespoke Alexander McQueen number with fun fringe detailing on the shoulders.

She complemented the structured jacket with a matching Philip Treacy hat, diamond and pearl earrings borrowed from the Queen, and a pin of red poppies as a symbol of remembrance for World War veterans.

Despite the U.K.'s second lockdown, the royal family paid tribute to fallen servicemen and women with a scaled-down ceremony. Observing social-distancing measures, the public and military families were absent from the event, while members of the monarchy and political leaders stood on opposite sides of the balconies overlooking the memorial, where Prince William and Prince Charles laid wreaths honoring military personnel.

"On #RemembranceSunday The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge joined The Queen and Members of the Royal Family for the annual Remembrance Day Service at The Cenotaph," wrote the Palace on Instagram alongside photos from the commemorative event. "This year the @RoyalBritishLegion encouraged us all to to take to our windows and doorsteps for a two minutes’ silence at 11am on Sunday November 8, to remember and honour those who have sacrificed themselves to secure and protect our freedom."
