Kate, 38, was among members of the Royal Family commemorating the nation’s war dead at the service – which was scaled back due to the coronavirus pandemic – at the Cenotaph in London. Royal fans took to Twitter to praise Kate, who watched the ceremony from a balcony at the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office building alongside Camilla.

One wrote: “This beautiful regal lady looked so proud as her husband lay his wreath, they are such a credit to the royal family and our country.”

Another gushed: “Beautiful elegant lady we are so lucky to have her as our future Queen.”

A third praised: “Regal. Dignified. Elegant.”

Another commented: “Kate looks stunning, her serenity, strength and empathy never falters , she is a true inspiration.”

A fifth said: “Kate Middleton looks phenomenal.”

One more added: “Stunning! Beautiful lady and will make a wonderful Queen.”

Kate looked typically stunning in a black military-style coat and fascinator, completing her outfit with three poppies.

She stood next to the Duchess of Cornwall for the service.

Prince Charles laid a wreath at the ceremony on behalf of the Queen, who watched from a balcony with Lady-in-Waiting Susan Rhodes.

The monarch’s message on her wreath said “In memory of the glorious dead”, echoing the words on the Cenotaph.

Prince William, Princess Anne and Prince Edward also laid wreaths at the service, which was held outdoors with guests required to follow social distancing.

The Countess of Wessex and Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence were on a third balcony.
