The royal, who is Joint-President of the Scouts, sat down with Colonel Blum and Emily at the Royal Hospital Chelsea, and spoke about the vital role that Remembrance has played within our society over the past 100 years, and the importance of ensuring that we continue to acknowledge and commemorate the sacrifices made by our servicemen and women.

Colonel Blum reflected on the importance of Remembrance to him, having served in Italy during the Second World War, whilst Emily spoke about what she has learned about the roles that the Scouts played as part of the wartime effort, including helping with the evacuation of young children from cities, and taking part in fire watches and harvests.

Earlier in the week, Kate was spotted rocking a unique sailor outfit by Alexander McQueen for a visit to London's Imperial War Museum to open two new galleries - The Second World War Galleries and The Holocaust Galleries.

Looking as stylish as ever, the mother-of-three re-wore one of her favourite sailor-style blouses with tailored trousers, a waist belt, high heel shoes and her navy blue Catherine Walker coat. Her hair was perfected with a polished blow-dry and her makeup was as immaculate as ever.

During the visit, the brunette beauty viewed the new exhibits, which included the two portraits she took last year to mark 75 years since the end of the Holocaust.
