For shoes, the Duchess of Cambridge selected the same pumps she wore to last year’s Festival of Remembrance: Jimmy Choo’s Romy heels. The court shoes featured a pointed toe, a black velvet upper and a slim stiletto heel. While not available for purchase in the fabrication chosen by the duchess, the Romy can be shopped in suede at Farfetch.com for just under $600.

To complete the look, the mother of three selected an Alexander McQueen clutch and a sparkly Zara headband. Puffy headbands are a major fall trend, and the Zara one is a relatively accessibly priced take on the fad — available on the brand’s site for just $30.

Held annually, the Festival of Remembrance is one of several events the British royal family attends to coincide with Remembrance Day, a U.K. memorial day honoring fallen soldiers. This year’s festival included performances from well-known entertainers such as Leona Lewis and James Blunt.

The 2019 event commemorates the 100th anniversary since the end of World War II and the 75th anniversary of D-Day.
