She last wore the dress when she visited the Noel Coward Theatre in London to see a special performance of Dear Evan Hansen, in aid of the Royal Foundation.

Back then she teamed with sparkly accessories, but for the Royal Albert Hall appearance she teamed the dress with black stiletto shoes, and a black clutch bag. Kate wore her hair down, and her makeup looked totally flawless. Just exquisite, don't you think?

This was the first year Her Majesty the Queen was not in attendance. A statement from Buckingham Palace read: "Following on from their recent advice that the Queen should rest for a few days, Her Majesty’s doctors have advised that she should continue to rest for at least the next two weeks.

"The doctors have advised that Her Majesty can continue to undertake light, desk-based duties during this time, including some virtual audiences, but not to undertake any official visits. Her Majesty regrets that this means she will be unable to attend the Festival of Remembrance on Saturday November 13.

"However, it remains The Queen’s firm intention to be present for the National Service of Remembrance on Remembrance Sunday, on November 14."

The annual event had no audience in 2020 due to the pandemic, so this year was even more special.

In 2019, Kate went all out, rocking an elegant dark blue midi dress with a fitted waistband. She also wore her trademark glossy brown hair in loose waves and famously channelled a £17.99 padded rhinestone headband from high street favourite Zara.

The Festival of Remembrance is a commemorative event dedicated to all those who have served and sacrificed from across Britain and the Commonwealth.  

To mark 100 years since the collective national Remembrance traditions came together for the first time, we remember the military and civilians, the old and young, and the British and Commonwealth men and women who have fought wars, disasters and pandemics to protect and defend Britain.
