After Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan visited the "Field of Remembrance" on Thursday (November 7), Saturday's "Festival of Remembrance" will take place at the famed Royal Albert Hall. On Sunday afternoon, the whole family shows up on the balcony at the "Cenotaph", a monument in London's Westminster district. A memorial service at Westminster Abbey will be held on the evening of November 11th.
"Remembrance Sunday" 2019: Meghan hides under XL hat
Duchess Meghan shows up on Sunday (November 10) as part of the Remembrance Day celebrations in a dark coat with a wide belt that wraps around her waist. Underneath, the Duchess wears a high-necked black garment with an elegant lace, which flashes lightly under her coat. Her high-set hair seems almost completely hidden under her big hat with XL brim.
Even Duchess Meghan herself seems to want to hide under her large headgear and use it as a kind of fashionable shield in public. For her appearance on the balcony, she also chooses a rather strong make-up and is photographed with pink-rimmed lips and intensively accentuated eyes.
Duchess Kate: Her coat is a tribute to fallen soldiers
High-necked and with an elegant collar on her coat, Duchess Kate positions herself on the "Remembrance Sunday" on the balcony of the Cenotaph. The chic embellishments and idiots are reminiscent of a military uniform – a beautiful gesture to the glory of the fallen soldiers. Bahrain pearl earrings, which Kate wore on Remembrence Sunday in 2016, as well as a black fascinator by Philip Treacy and her poppy brooch make Kate's look perfect that day. Her refined updo also thrilled.
Duchess Meghan in 2018 for the first time as Royal at "Remembrance Day"
Last year, Duchess Meghan attended the memorial service for the first time as part of the Royal Family, appearing on both the "Remembrance Sunday" on the balcony and the service at Westminster Abbey. In a dark coat from Givenchy – the fashion house where Meghan's wedding dress was made just a few months earlier – and a matching black velvet headgear, Prince Harry's wife and the other royals stood on one of the three balconies.
Sophisticated details on the shoulders and sleeves made the simple it-piece a real eye-catcher. The growing baby bump was not visible under the coat at this time. Her dark hair had knotted her into a noble chignon at the nape of her neck, the sparkling "Precious" earrings by Vanessa Tugendhaft came out to perfection.
Pregnant Meghan wore tailoring by Prada
For the evening's service, she chose a tailored Prada dress in dark blue. The submarine neckline, which has become a trademark of Meghan since her marriage to Prince Harry in May 2018, fits perfectly in this case as well. She also combined dark blue "Deneuve" pumps by Aquazurra and a dark clutch.
The duchesses relied on their bridal gown designers
Duchess Catherine also relied on the fashion house for her appearance on the balcony, which was already creating her wedding dress. She wore a dark, tailored coat from Alexander McQueen, who looked like a tribute to the uniforms of the soldiers through his white collar and silver buttons.
Beaded earrings by Cassandra Goad, a poppy brooch and a dark hat by Lock & Company made the look perfect. Special attention was also given to her artfully raised wickerwork.
For the evening's service, the triple mom then chose a dark green coat with velvet collar by Catherine Walker. The accessories were perfectly matched; a dark velvet headband graced her updo, the dark green of the coat found in her clutch.
"Remembrance Day": This is important for the looks of the Duchesses
Because the Duchesses are not prepared to take off their mantles in public, and the winter temperatures in London are no different, we will see Catherine and Meghan in outerwear on Sunday.
Important for these dates is the red poppy, which serves as a symbol for the fallen soldiers. Small brooches or artificial stickers with the red "Poppy" are distributed and worn in the weeks before "Remembrance Day".
While many eyes were turned to Meghan, who attended the celebrations as a Royal for the first time last year, the focus this year is on both couples. After countless headlines, a sensational TV documentary and several solo appointments will show whether the princes and their wives can finally put an end to the rumors of a family feud.
