Sophie, Countess of Wessex has stepped out in an all black ensemble to mark Remembrance Sunday.

For the sombre occasion, the royal wore a Catherine Walker black coat paired with a Sophie Habsburg clutch and an Aphrodite headpiece. She complemented the look with white pearl earrings and a pearl necklace.

In a special touch, Sophie’s dress was recently worn by her daughter, Lady Louise Windsor during the Queen’s Vigil.

The Vigil of the Princes saw Her Majesty’s children and grandchildren join the Royal Company of Archers, who were tasked with guarding the Queen’s casket during its time in St Giles’ Cathedral in Edinburgh, Scotland.

In September, Princess Anne became the first female royal to join the Vigil. Later, Anne’s daughter Zara Tindall, Prince Andrew’s daughters Beatrice and Eugenie, and Prince Edward’s daughter Lady Louise Windsor joined their male relatives for the tradition.

The Princess of Wales paid homage to her late mother-in-law Princess Diana while attending a Remembrance day event.

Dressed in all black, Catherine donned a black coat dress with a suede clutch and downturn hat while joining King Charles III and other royals at the Cenotaph for Remembrance Sunday.

In a poignant touch, the princess wore a stunning pair of sea pearl earrings that once belonged to the People’s Princess herself.

Catherine recently donned the earrings during a Buckingham Palace reception for foreign dignitaries on the eve of the Queen’s funeral.

Most notably, Diana wore the drop pearls to an English National Ballet performance in Budapest in 1992. She was known to pair the gems with her iconic Spencer tiara, which is set to be inherited by Catherine’s daughter Princess Charlotte.

The Remembrance event comes four days after Catherine gave one of her red poppies to a young royal fan.

During her inaugural visit to Colham Manor Children’s Centre in Hillingdon, west London, the Princess of Wales was greeted by a chatty boy named Akeem, and the patron of the Maternal Mental Health Alliance was more than happy to oblige in a conversation with the three-year-old.

“My name is Catherine,” the royal introduced herself after Akeem inquired. “Very nice to meet you,” she continued.

The Duchess of Cornwall then asked if Akeem had a poppy, before offering her own to the young boy. “You can have my poppy,” she said as she removed it from her coat.

“Do you know what this is for?” Catherine asked as she handed Akeem the poppy. “It’s remembering all the soldiers who died in the war.

“There you go that’s for you, you look after it,” she continued. “Is there a teacher here or your mummy? Is your mmmy here? Shall I give her the pin in case she wants to put it on?”
