Duchess of Cambridge recycles DvF coat at Remembrance Sunday service

Duchess of Cambridge and Countess of Wessex

Britain's Duchess of Cambridge toned down her usually glamorous image at a Remembrance Sunday service at the Cenotaph in London yesterday.

Duchess Catherine wore the same re-cycled black Diane Von Furstenburg coat with embellished collar and sleeves that she wore to the service last year.

Catherine teamed the snug jacket with a wide-brimmed black Phillip Treacy designed hat complete with a feminine twirly bow.

Keeping with the solemn occasion, Catherine completed her look with a pair of discreet pearl earrings and added a touch of glitz with her bejewelled poppy brooch.

This isn't the first time the style icon has re-cycled her most iconic outfits.

The 30-year-old star - who is famed for her fashion thriftiness - wore a black and nude Alice Temperley creation for the second time at a dinner party in London last week.

Joining the duchess to watch the parade on the Foreign and Commonwealth Office balcony was Britain's Countess of Wessex. The countess also opted for a dark coloured winter coat and hat to mark the sombre event.

The pair watched as Britain's Queen Elizabeth II and then the Duke of Cambridge, wearing his Royal Air Force uniform, laid wreaths at the Cenotaph memorial service.

On Remembrance Sunday respects are paid to British servicemen and women who died during all of the conflicts since World War I.
