The Princess of Wales looked sombre in a beautiful black ensemble when she joined her husband Prince William at Saturday’s Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance.

Dressed to the nines in an elegant black dressPrincess Kate, 41, was a vision as she arrived at the Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall on Saturday night. The royal mum-of-three made sure to stay respectful with her minimalist outfit, only accessorising with her ring and a pearl necklace that had been previously worn by the late Queen.

The mother-of-three – who raises Prince George, ten, Princess Charlotte, eight, and Prince Louis, five, with her husband – had her hair styled in her signature way.

Princess Kate never fails to get the dress code right for all-important Remembrance outings, favouring sombre and demure looks and letting her poignant choice of accessories do all the talking.

According to Matthew Storey, curator at Historic Royal Palaces, “mourning dress has been part of European royal culture for centuries, but it reached its peak in the 19th century with the influence of Queen Victoria.

“Widows were required to wear black, then either white or mauve, for at least three years before being able to return to richly coloured clothing,” he told The Telegraph.

Princess Kate was last seen on Wednesday when she visited the 1st The Queen’s Dragoon Guards in Norfolk for the very first time as Colonel-in-Chief of the regiment.
