Honoring their country. Kate Middleton and husband Prince William attended the Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall in London on Saturday, Nov. 7, where they honored fallen British soldiers and veterans.
Accompanied by Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge gathered in the Royal Box and stood and applauded as the Chelsea Pensioners kicked off the ceremony.
Middleton, 33, looked elegant in a Dolce & Gabbana black lace dress with black pumps, while Prince William, 33, looked dapper in a suit and glasses.
The ceremony included a touching speech by an Afghanistan veteran, Paul Jacobs, who went blind after saving others from a blast. The royal couple looked onward from the balcony, standing up and applauding the heartfelt speech.
Last Sunday, William’s younger brother, Prince Harry, got choked up as he received dog tags from an injured American marine.
“No I can’t, I can’t accept this,” the royal, 31 — who served the Armed Forces for 10 years — said.
Last week, he also met with President Barack Obama at the White House to discuss his involvement with the 2016 Invictus Games — a sporting event for injured active duty and veteran soldiers — and his campaign to assist wounded soldiers.
