I am sure I read somewhere that the Earl of Harewood attended the Remembrance Day Service in Leeds.

Part of me expected to see William and Kate there at the festival of remembrance - they are in London and it would have been good to finally see William attend this event.

I was quite shocked they didn't attend, though Catherine will no doubt be in the balcony with Sophie and Camilla tomorow morning at the Cenotaph as William lays a wreath does he not?

In another way I am not shocked they weren't there as normally only children and cousins of the monarch attend in the Royal box. William has never been as he?

Thanks for the images, I love that Charles always goes his own way in the fashion stakes. He is wearing what appears to be a blue suit, while others wear dark navy/black. A bit like his grey morning suit while everyone else wears black. Funny man.

If Catherine attends tomorow I hope it does not detract from the reason for the ceremony, to honour the dead, not comment on the fashion choice of the living.

Catherine and William are confirmed to attend tomorrow. It is no surprise they did not attend tonight.

Well, as I said , lets hope her presence dosen't detract from the reason why they are there. I don't suppose there will be any prizes for guessing what will be on most front pages on Monday, or am I just being crass

Agreed. And not to criticize her hair and make-up either.

Best way to avoid press about one's fashion is to recycle. She will hopefully wear nothing new or flashy. Or even no-name non-descript people rather than the McQueen's and Packham's of the world.

I believe though that until she picks up on the charity front fashion will continue to be the only thing people can constantly talk about when it comes to her.

I don't believe that it will matter one way or the other what she wears, someone will say it's the wrong thing.

If she recycles someone will say she did not respect the veterans enough to wear her "best'. Or she didn't respect them enough to "make an appropriate effort".

If she wears something new she'll be accused of trying to "take the spotlight'.

Frankly, a no-win scenario for her.

I don't believe that if someone recycles their clothes that will be interpreted as disrespectful. Things like that occur when people show cleavage and things like that.

Even now we talk about her clothes because we can't yet nail down her professionalism....at least I can't.

Kate is going to wear a black dress & coat with a black hat like the other royal wives. Hopefully, the press will focus on the reason for the service.

This is her first time at the ceremony and the press will make a big deal of it just like they will for Christmas at Sandringham. However, Kate will spend the rest of her life attending this service and the press's fashion obsession will hopefully fade a little as she goes further along in her royal life.

I wholeheartedly agree. I'm sure the Daily Mail will have blazing headlines panning Catherine's outfit. God Forbid, the DM might actually report on the solemn ceremony itself.
