Hailed by many as a style icon, Kate Middleton has once again proven that she’s committed to reusing and recycling her wardrobe, wearing an Eponine London dress for the Festival of Remembrance. She first wore the dress in February 2020. For the festival, she paired the refined dress with jewellery which once belonged to Princess Diana.
- Kate Middleton stunned in an Eponine London dress and items of jewelry belonging to her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana.
- Kate accompanied Prince William, Prince Charles and Camilla Parker-Bowles to the Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall.
- In other royal news, the Queen will attend Remembrance Day service following illness.
Kate recycled the dress which she last wore when visiting the Noel Coward Theatre in 2020 to see a special performance of Dear Evan Hansen, in aid of the Royal Foundation.
Kate paired the dress with the Collingwood Pearl Earrings, as well as the Three Strand Pearl Bracelet.
Diana most famously wore the bracelet in 1989 while attending a royal engagement in Hong Kong.
Kate finished off her look with a new poppy brooch from The Royal British Legion, the Three Poppies Crystal Gold Plated Brooch.
Kate was joined by husband, Prince William, father-in-law Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla Parker-Bowles.

This was the first year Her Majesty the Queen was not in attendance at the annual Festival of Remembrance.
A statement from Buckingham Palace explained, "Following on from their recent advice that the Queen should rest for a few days, Her Majesty’s doctors have advised that she should continue to rest for at least the next two weeks.
"The doctors have advised that Her Majesty can continue to undertake light, desk-based duties during this time, including some virtual audiences, but not to undertake any official visits. Her Majesty regrets that this means she will be unable to attend the Festival of Remembrance on Saturday November 13. However, it remains The Queen’s firm intention to be present for the National Service of Remembrance on Remembrance Sunday, on November 14."
