Kate Middleton Recycles LK Bennett Coat For Poppy Day Appeal
She first wore LK Bennett’s red “Ami” coat to a Copenhagen UNICEF center in November 2011, and then again at a rugby match in Wales, but the Duchess of Cambridge thought it an appropriate selection for today’s engagement.
Joined by her husband, the Duke, Catherine met with servicemen and women who are selling Remembrance poppies across London.
The royal couple welcomed a 1960s Routemaster Bus to Kensington Palace, where they were greeted by actress and Royal British Legion Poppy Day ambassador Barbara Windsor and newscaster Alastair Stewart.
William and Catherine then took the bus to Kensington High Street, where they met with those selling Remembrance poppies in honor of fallen soldiers.
“They asked how the appeal was going and whether we were getting support from the public,” retired volunteer Tim Connolly told the Daily Mail.
“The answer is we’re getting a lot of support. The public is responding when they see uniformed personnel out collecting for the appeal.”
Catherine’s next engagement is November 19th, when she and William will visit Only Connect Head Office in London, an organization that supportz ex-offenders and at-risk youths.
