Monday, March 9, is Commonwealth Day, and to mark the day there was an inter-faith Commonwealth Service at Westminster Abbey attended by The Queen, Prince Philip, Prince Charles, Camilla Duchess of Cornwall, Prince William, and the Duchess of Cambridge (Kate Middleton).
The Queen wore a pale beige tweed dress and coat by Karl Ludwig and matching hat by Angela Kelly.
Camilla wore a navy Bruce Oldfield dress and coat with black trim with a hat by Philip Treacy. She wore pearl earrings and her four-strand pearl choker with diamond clasp.
Prince William is a grumpy pants. Kate finally recycled a maternity look from her last pregnancy. She wore this custom pink Alexander McQueen coat with pearl buttons she previously wore to Trooping the Color 2013. She wore her pink satin Prada pumps and carried her pink satin Prada clutch.
Kate is wearing new earrings from Kiki McDonough, the Kiki Classic Morganite and Diamond Cushion Drop Earrings (£3,400.00), and a new pink hat by Jane Taylor.

There was also some wind:
As expected, Will and Kate will visit the 1st Battalion Irish Guards at Aldershot on St. Patrick’s Day, March 17. William is Royal Colonel of the Irish Guards and he and Kate have visited them every St. Patrick’s Day since they got married.
