Kate Middleton Wore a Bold Scalloped Collar on a Remembrance Day Call

And you can still buy it.

Kate Middleton

Yesterday, just a day after she attended a Remembrance Sunday ceremony in London, Kate Middleton hosted a call with men and women serving in the armed forces. And during the call, which saw Kate speaking to armed forces families who had lost loved ones, she wore a white blouse with a bold, scalloped black collar from Ghost London — it's called the Boo Blouse and is still available for £79 (about $105 USD), though probably not for long — embellished with a traditional poppy pin.

During her talk with Chantelle Wynn, Serena Alexander, Charlton Taylor, and Sonia Fleming, Kate said that it was an honor to speak to people who had lost family members and that she recognizes the bravery and sacrifice that their loved ones made. The poppy, for anyone unfamiliar, has been worn since 1921 to commemorate military members who lost their lives during war.

"It's been a real honor to speak to all of you, and I think I speak for the whole nation when I say just how proud you should be of your loved ones, and for the sacrifice and the bravery that they’ve shown," Kate said. "I'll certainly be thinking of you this difficult week and will be for many years to come."

Kensington Palace posted the call to Instagram, which showed off Kate's blouse as well as her heartwarming message.

"The @RoyalBritishLegion provides lifelong support to anyone who has served with the British Armed Forces and their families. The Duchess of Cambridge spoke to Armed Forces families who have lost loved ones to hear about the impact that #Remembrance week has for them," the caption reads. "Together they spoke about the support that they receive from members of the Armed Forces community, including other bereaved families, and from the Royal British Legion."

Prince William also spoke for Remembrance Day, addressing deployed representatives from the Royal Navy, Army, and the Royal Air Force. William served as a pilot with the Royal Air Force's Search and Rescue Force.

"I hope that you know that we are still thinking about all of you and the important job you’re all doing and that everyone is very grateful," William told Flight Sergeant Gemma Thomson, Leading Physical Instructor Damon Bell, and Corporal Jiwan Kumar Thapa. "I hope that over Remembrance Sunday we can remind people just how committed and determined, and how brilliant all the people we have in the Forces are around the world."
