Ahead of Remembrance Day on November 11, the Duchess of Sussex and the Duchess of Cambridge made respective royal appearances at Westminster Abbey and St Martin-in-the Fields, coordinating their looks despite the different occasions.
To attend the Field of Remembrance service at Westminster Abbey, Meghan Markle elected to wear a Sentaler midnight blue coat from the brand’s autumn/winter ‘15/’16 collection. And, to accent the look, she matched the coat to a fascinator in the same dark hue by master milliner Philip Treacy, which juxtaposed the Remembrance Poppy affixed to her coat in a neat contrast.

Meanwhile, at the launch of the National Emergencies Trust that same day, Kate Middleton wore a designer royal favourite – a belted dress by Emilia Wickstead – in a royal blue shade, which she teamed with earrings from Princess Diana’s personal collection and a Remembrance Poppy brooch. To accessorise, Middleton rounded out the clean and polished look with a black envelope-style clutch bag and classic patent black heels, adhering to her minimal yet elegant personal style as per usual.
Their respective outings mark the beginning of a series of events that will commemorate those members of the armed forces who died fighting in World War One over the next few days. Both royals, alongside Prince William and Prince Harry, are set to come together at the Festival of Remembrance and Remembrance Day Services unfolding this Saturday and Sunday.
And, though it may just be a royal coincidence, it’s interesting to hark back to the Remembrance Day service held at Westminster Abbey in 2018, where Markle arrived in a navy, double-breasted, belted dress not dissimilar to the version Middleton stepped out in yesterday. While fans can deliberate who wore it better, we propose this investigation instead: is Middleton taking style cues from Markle?
