The royals remember the fallen. Prince William and Duchess Kate joined Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Phillip at the annual Royal Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall in London on Saturday, November 12.

The Duke of Cambridge, 34, looked dapper in a navy suit, while the Duchess of Cambridge, 34, donned a stunning black Callas evening coat from Temperley London’s pre-fall 2014 collection. She accessorized the elegant look with a black clutch and high heels, and wore her long brunette locks down.

Prince Charles, Duchess Camilla, Prince Andrew, Prince Edward and his wife, Countess Sophie, and prime minister Theresa May were among the other dignitaries who attended Saturday night’s event.

The royals were greeted by Jon Moynihan, president of the famed Royal Albert Hall, and vice-admiral Peter Wilkinson, president of the Royal British Legion, before they took their seats in the royal box.

The 2016 Royal Festival of Remembrance marked the centenaries of the Battle of the Somme and the Battle of Jutland, the 25th anniversary of the Gulf War and the 80th anniversary of the first flight of the Supermarine Spitfire.

Hours earlier, Prince Harry, who was not at the Remembrance event, attended the Autumn International rugby match, in which England defeated South Africa 37–21, alongside Princess Charlene of Monaco. His new girlfriend, Meghan Markle, did not attend.

The day before, Harry, 32, attended a remembrance service at the Armed Forces Memorial in Staffordshire, where he was joined by Army, Royal Navy and Royal Air Force veterans and representatives. He honored Armistice Day by laying a wreath at the National Memorial Arboretum.
