Duchess Kate honored Britain's heroes who were either lost or suffered in war with a nod to a different kind of British hero, Alexander McQueen

Joined by Queen Maxima, who is visiting from the Netherlands, the two looked on and chatted at the Remembrance Sunday Service at the Cenotaph on Whitehall in London. Kate wore a black velvet patchwork McQueen coat with a veiled fascinator and of course, poppies. 

The duchess' affinity for McQueen knows no bounds. She has stepped out repeatedly in looks from the fashion house. But the choice is especially notable for a ceremony honoring Britain's fallen war heroes, and is the perfect choice for this occasion.
