Kate Middleton's look at the annual Festival of Remembrance in London has always been simple, neutral, and all-black. In 2016, she wore a lace Dolce & Gabbana shift, but this year the duchess pulled out a luxe new coat. The bespoke Catherine Walker design came in velvet and was embellished with Swarovski crystal buttons. Some type of standout outerwear, eh?

The custom piece is based on the label's Caressa Jacket, and Kate played up the shimmer with Princess Diana's Collingwood pearl earrings, a beaded Magid clutch, and her sapphire engagement ring. Read on to see every detail of Kate's latest maternity ensemble, and if you like a velvet dress with a little something extra, shop inspired styles.
