The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge remember the fallen on ANZAC day
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge carried out the final official engagement of their tour of New Zealand and Australia on Friday morning.

William and Kate paid their respects to fallen soldiers by attending the ANZAC day march and a commemorative service in Canberra before visiting the Australian War Memorial in the country’s capital.
 

At the memorial the royal couple planted a ‘Lone Pine’, a tree specifically planted as a memorial to the Australian and New Zealand soldiers who fought in Gallipoli.

For the formal occasion Kate sported a blue and white coat dress and a dark navy pillbox hat and heels.

The 31-year-old Duchess accessorised her look with a jewelled poppy badge, while her husband Prince William wore a smart navy suit.

Earlier in the day the couple had made an unscheduled appearance at a 5:30am memorial service, for which they both wore black.

Given the earlier hour, Kate wrapped up against the cold in a quilted black coat and a cream scarf.

William and Kate’s engagement at the war memorial marked the end of their three-week royal tour and the couple later boarded an Royal Australian Air Force aircraft as they began the long journey back to London.
