Princess Kate enjoys sweet moment with Queen Camilla as they attend Remembrance Service

Kate Middleton, the Princess of Wales, could be seen having a sweet moment of reflection with Queen Camilla as the pair paid their respects on Remembrance Sunday.

The royalls could be seen speaking with one another at the traditional spot on the balcony of the Foreign Office – which overlooks the Cenotaph in Westminster – before watching the emotional service.

Due to the chilly weather, both of the royals were wrapped up in elegant black coats and hats as well as pearl jewellery, with Kate opting for a military-style coat for the event.

But while King Charles and other senior members of the Royal Family wore one simple poppy on their uniforms, Kate could be seen with three on her outfit – paying tribute to those who lost their lives in the World Wars and other conflicts.

Despite never being officially confirmed by Buckingham Palace, a theory is that royals wear multiple brooches in honour of family members who have fought and died in wars.

The Princess of Wales' reason is also unknown, but many believe it stems from her paying tribute to lost family members. Kate's great-grandmother had three brothers killed in action during World War One, with the Princess having the opportunity to view the letters from her ancestors during a trip to the Imperial War Museum in 2018.

The late Queen is another famous figure who wore more than one poppy at Remembrance events – wearing five in total which was believed to be in tribute to the five branches of service during World War One and Two – the Army, Royal Navy, RAF, the Civil Defence, and Women.

At today's service, the King led the two-minute silence before laying a wreath in front of the Cenotaph, before being joined by senior royals behind him including the Prince of Wales – who also laid a wreath.

Wearing the uniform of The Marshal of the Royal Air Force with greatcoat, poppy and sword, Charles laid a wreath similar to the one produced for King George VI. The wreath features 41 open style poppy petals made from bonded fabric, hard-wearing paper.

It is mounted on an arrangement of black leaves – traditional for sovereign's wreaths – of 27-inch diameter ribbon and bow using the colours from The King's racing silk – scarlet, purple and gold, Buckingham Palace said.

The Cenotaph is a physical reminder for all of the servicemen who have served at sacrifice, including members of the emergency services and civilians who lost their lives in the line of duty fighting terror on the domestic front.

Prince William's wreath featured white Prince of Wales feathers and bears a ribbon in "Welsh red", while Prince Edward and Princess Anne also laid wreaths. Queen Camilla and Kate Middleton were joined by Sophie, the Duchess of Edinburgh, and the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester on the balcony of the Foreign Office.
