While Prince William is in New Zealand meeting with victims of the March 15 Christchurch shooting, Prince Harry and Kate Middleton represented the Queen at ANZAC Day commemoration and service of Thanksgiving in London.
Harry was not scheduled to attend the service at Westminster Abbey, which marks a national day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand for those who served and died in war. With the Duchess of Sussex's (unconfirmed) due date looming, the prince is keeping his royal diary clear.
Harry and Kate were joined by the Queen's first cousin, Prince Richard, Duke of Gloucester, for the service. The Duke, who is Colonel-in-Chief of the Royal New Zealand Army Medical Corps, and his wife are considered full-time working royals, carrying out engagements on behalf of Her Majesty.
Kate wore a dress by Catherine Walker for the service, on which she pinned a Remembrance poppy. I would twirl around in that pleated skirt all the livelong day.
Kate accessorized with blue topaz and diamond earrings and a necklace by one of her favorite jewelers, Kiki McDonough. According to What Kate Wore, HRH topped the look off with a hat by Rosie Olivia. Feathers!
Reports that the Sussexes and Cambridges have been at odds over the past year may still be circulating, but the warmth between Harry and Kate hasn't gone cold. The two have always had a great relationship, especially given that William dated Kate for the better part of a decade before proposing.
And now, we wait for Baby Sussex to make his or her debut. Unlike other royal births, the public will not be made aware of the labor timeline, as confirmed by Buckingham Palace earlier this month.
