King Charles III will lead the annual Remembrance Day events for the first time this year. It will be a poignant few days as royal family members commemorate Armed Forces members who have died in conflicts throughout the years.

The Queen Consort attended the 94th annual Field of Remembrance at Westminster Abbey. The Queen owns a lot of green coats, but I do believe we’ve seen this specific number at least once before. The zip front and the front details are nice feature. Yes, the boots have returned, but the overall effect is certainly warm looking and appropriate for the occasion.

Camilla added her Bugle Horn Rifles Badge to finish off the look.

The Duke and Duchess of Gloucester attended the National Memorial Arboretum Armistice Day service in Staffordshire. There isn’t much to say, sartorially speaking, about these events other than the DoGlo is her usual appropriate self. That is a lovely brooch she has used at her collar, and a placement approach I wish other royals used more often.
Saturday, November 12th
The Queen Consort, The Prince and Princess of Wales, The Earl and Countess of Wessex, The Princess Royal and Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence, The Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, and (possibly) the Duke of Kent and Princess Alexandra attended Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall.
The Queen is reportedly wearing an Anna Valentine design. She is also sporting her favorite Van Cleef & Arpels Alhambra earrings and bracelet.
The Princess of Wales wore separates with a lace detail hem by Self Portrait. Thanks to our eagle-eyed Baguette Elizabeth Davies who reported that this is the same dress worn by Princess Beatrice for the Grandchildren’s Vigil and Flora Vesterberg for HM’s funeral. Kate has the same outfit in ivory, worn in 2021 at a Hold Still reception. She is in the “Japanese” pearl choker and the Bahrain Pearl drop earrings, originally lent to her by Queen Elizabeth.
The Countess of Wessex’s is in a dress with cutwork by Suzannah. Her poppy is by the Poppy Shop, and her clutch is by Lulu Guinness. It has some lovely details which you can see at UFONoMore.
The Princess Royal is continuing her elegant streak. I think she has looked terrific the past few months.
Sunday, November 13th
Members of the Royal Family, led by the King and Queen Consort, attended the service at the Cenotaph. There is a bit of changing of the wreaths, which you can read about on the Royal Family website.
The Princess of Wales leaned on two of her most reliable designers. She wore a Catherine Walker coat and a Philip Treacy hat. Those are the late Princess of Wales’ “Southsea” earrings, and rumor has it that brooch is new.
As I mentioned earlier, the Hofdames are only intermittently available this weekend, so we are relying on you to provide many photos and comments to carry us through.
