Carole Middleton's green coat, worn at the Together At Christmas carol service event in Westminster Abbey, fuzes elegance and practicality as the business woman stepped out in chilly London weather. The event, organized by her daughter the Princess of Wales, was attended by other members of the Middleton clan including Pippa Middleton.

Carole Middleton, Michael Middleton, Pippa Middleton, and her husband James Matthews attended the special carol service, which is organized by the Princess of Wales. Carole chose to wear a stunning green Hobbs coat, that has flown off the rails since she was spotted in it. Luckily there's a super similar, and even more affordable option from high street favorites Monki.

Classic Double-Breasted Coat, £75 | Monki

A classic cut, this coat sits just below the knee. It's in a classic forest green and double-breasted. This coat has two sleek side pockets and one hidden pocket on the inside of the coat - which is always a plus!

The shade of green stood out in contrast to burgundy, which appeared to be the color of the night for the ladies in attendance. Zara Tindall, Pippa Middleton, Kate Middleton, and Princess Charlotte all sported the popular shade. This meant that Sophie Wessex's cream coat and dress, alongside the Queen Consort's cream coat really stood out from the crowd. Luckily, the royal event also saw Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice dispel feud rumors as they put on a united front during the carol service.

Together at Christmas is all about recognizing unsung heroes across the country. Supported by the Royal Foundation, it's an annual opportunity to celebrate and acknowledge the selfless efforts of individuals, families, and communities across the UK. The event serves to celebrate and platform the true joy that human connection and togetherness can bring.

This year's event pays tribute to the memory of Queen Elizabeth II, and the values the monarch displayed throughout her life and reign - duty, empathy, faith, service, kindness, compassion, and support for others. Held in Westminster Abbey, guests at the event were afforded the opportunity to see fantastic performances and poignant readings from public figures too. 

Needless to say, only days after volume II of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's Netflix documentary dropped - in which Prince Harry opens up on the 'Megxit' talks with senior royals that ended in Prince William 'screaming and shouting' - many saw a double entendre in the Prince of Wales' reading, which called for 'togetherness.'
