Kate Middleton Wore An Outfit That Violated Protocol

The Duchess of Cambridge went for a very sharp look with a headband... But in doing so made a big mistake.

As every year, the second weekend of November is dedicated to commemorations.

November 11th was Remembrance Day, a symbolic day on which the Commonwealth countries pay tribute to fallen soldiers. On this occasion, several events followed one another starting from the beginning of the weekend.

On Saturday, November 9th all members of the Royal Family were gathered at the 96th edition of the Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall in London. Dressed in black and red, the Queen was surrounded by her son Prince Charles and her grandchildren Prince William and Harry and their wives.

For the occasion, Kate Middleton wore a black knee-length dress, as well as a pair of black pumps and had accessorised her hair with a headband. This is one of the key trends of the moment. From Fashion Week parades to red carpets at media events, all the stars have adopted it.

‘When you go Home, tell them of us and say, For your Tomorrow, we gave our Today.' Members of the Royal Family joined faith leaders, political leaders, veterans and serving members of the Armed Forces who gathered at the Cenotaph on Whitehall this morning to remember those who have lost their lives in conflict. The word cenotaph means ‘empty tomb’ and it symbolises the unprecedented losses suffered during the First World War. The Cenotaph was unveiled by King George V on 11 November 1920 at the same ceremony which saw the Unknown Warrior laid to rest. Initially intended as a temporary structure, the Cenotaph was made permanent after the British people, still grieving for the huge losses of the First World War, took the monument to their hearts. 📸 Press Association

Despite this fashionable accessory, the Duchess of Cambridge's outfit was relatively sober and in keeping with the theme of the day.

An element that makes a difference

Forced to comply with the protocols imposed by her status, Kate Middleton broke a key rule with her look. George, Charlotte and Louis' mother appeared wearing opaque black tights. Since these are forbidden, she should have opted for flesh-coloured tights.
