If you thought she looked remarkable in head-to-toe white for her wedding to Prince William back in April, black suited the Duchess even better, as Kate Middleton donned a black outfit for her first Remembrance Day ceremony as Duchess of Cambridge on Sunday.

Queen Elizabeth II and the family gathered on Sunday for the Remembrance Day ceremony at the Cenotaph in central London, giving a moment of silence to commemorate those who died in war.

While the occasion was a somber one as a public tribute to Britain's war servicemen on Remembrance Sunday, Middleton stood out in the sea of black, wearing a double-breasted coat by Diane von Furstenberg, a bowler-style hat with a large bow on the brim by Jane Corbett and two red paper poppies, the Daily Mail reported.

The women alongside Middleton (Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, and Sophie, the Countess of Wessex) also wore all black and large hats with plumage for the ceremony. The women, along with Vice-Admiral Timothy Laurence, husband of the queen's daughter, Princess Anne the Princess Royal, abided by protocol, which states that  all members who married into the family shall watch from a distance, according to the Daily Mail, on the balcony.

The royal-born members of the family, Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh; Prince Charles and Prince William; and Prince Andrew, the Duke of York, along with the Queen, laid wreaths as commemoration. Prince Harry, currently in Arizona for helicopter training, reportedly attended a small ceremony at the base, according to USA Today.
