Now see what the princess wore.

She was in a design that might look familiar, the Self-Portrait Crepe and Chiffon Midi Dress ($300, now sold out). The piece is 100% polyester with peak lapels, padded shoulders, hip pockets and a pleated skirt finished with a wide lace border.

It might look familiar because we saw the same style in creamy white shades worn for the platinum jubilee party at the palace in June.

It was first honored in September 2021 at a reception honoring those who served hold tight project

This is a popular design; Princess Beatrice has worn this design in both black and white. He was seen in black during a vigil for the Queen in September.

Flora Westerberg, granddaughter of Princess Alexandra, wears black (seen below).

Many of the most recognizable pieces of jewelry worn by princesses, including the four-row pearl and diamond choker, were worn by the late Queen and Diana, Princess of Wales. The Princess of Wales also wore Bahrain pearl and diamond drop earrings, so-called because the pearls used for the earrings were a wedding gift to Princess Elizabeth, the ruler of Bahrain.

It’s a combination of the same jewelery that was seen at Prince Philip’s funeral in April 2021 and the Queen’s funeral just nine weeks earlier.

The poppies the princess wore appeared to be a thick paper style and she carried her black suede mulberry clutch.

I’ll see you tomorrow on Remembrance Sunday.


God bless tonight’s performance.
