  • The mother-of-two wore a black Diane von Furstenberg coat
  • Joined Duchess of Cornwall and other royals on the balcony
  • More than 750 Armed Forces personnel were applauded 

She has become renowned for ensuring that her outfits match the occasion and the Duchess of Cambridge once again struck the right sartorial note at today's Remembrance Day Service. 

The mother-of-two looked chic dressed in a black Diane von Furstenberg coat from the designer's 2008 collection, which she offset with a matching hat and three poppies affixed to her outerwear as she joined the nation in remembering the fallen. 

The 34-year-old, who accessorised her look with her favourite pearl drop earrings, also wore the piece at the same service back in 2011.

The Duchess of Cambridge, who wore her hair in a sophisticated low chignon, joined the Duchess of Cornwall, Sophie, Countess of Wessex, and other royals to watch the service on from the balcony of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO).

A two-minute silence led by the Queen was held to honour the war dead as the nation's leaders gathered at the Cenotaph on Remembrance Sunday.

The head of state was joined by Prime Minister Theresa May for the annual service in central London in memory of those killed in past and present conflicts.

More than 750 Armed Forces personnel were applauded by the gathered crowd as they marched to form a hollow square around the memorial.

As Big Ben struck 11am, the King's Troop Royal Horse Artillery fired their First World War-era guns to mark the beginning and end of the reflection in the heart of Whitehall. The Last Post was then sounded.

Dressed in black, the Queen laid a wreath of poppies at the memorial for 'The Glorious Dead' while Mrs May and leader of the Opposition and noted pacifist Jeremy Corbyn followed suit. 

Crowds of poppy wearers lined Whitehall, which was closed to traffic, hours ahead of the service to pay their respects.

Following the ceremony, thousands of veterans and servicemen and women paraded down Whitehall past the Guards memorial.

'Lest we forget': Remembrance Sunday is marked around the world

Remembrance Sunday has been commemorated across the globe today, as millions paid tribute to those killed in past and present conflicts.

This year, remembrance events will be especially poignant as 2016 marks the centenary 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.

The British Army suffered almost 60,000 casualties on the first day of the Somme battle alone and more than a million men would be killed or wounded on both sides over the course of the 141-day offensive.
