The Duchess of Cambridge, 34, teamed the knee-length stunner, which also boasted a Peter Pan collar and black underlay, with a square clutch and pointed-toe pumps. She added a pin featuring both a poppy and a cornflower — the combined memorial symbol of WWI and Somme, respectively — and one of her favorite black hats by Lock & Co.Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, attends the 100th anniversary of the beginning of the Battle of the Somme at the Thiepval Memorial to the Missing on July 1, 2016, in Thiepval, France.

The mom of Prince George, who will turn 3 on July 22, and Princess Charlotte, 13 months, was accompanied by both her husband, Prince William, and brother-in-law, Prince Harry. The trio attended a commemoration ceremony for the battle at the memorial in Thiepval. When it started to rain midway through, both of the princes popped up their umbrellas, while Duchess Kate, seemingly amused, hid underneath.Prince Harry, Duchess Kate and Prince William during the Commemoration of the Centenary of the Battle of the Somme at the Commonwealth War Graves Commission Thiepval Memorial on July 1, 2016, in Thiepval, France.

After the ceremony, Harry, William and Kate toured the local visitor's center, where they unveiled a plaque commemorating the centenary. The duke and duchess also stopped to chat with schoolchildren who were present.
The night before, the royals (with Kate in a striped Missoni coat) solemnly attended a tribute to the fallen soldiers, while across the Channel, Queen Elizabeth II honored the date at Westminster Abbey. Her majesty chose a sequin slate coat, teamed with a striped hat, for the service.Queen Elizabeth II attends a service on the eve of the centenary of the Battle of the Somme at Westminster Abbey on June 30, 2016, in London.
