Meghan Markle and the Duchess of Cambridge have very different signature styles - and favoured colour schemes - but the two royals both opted for shades of blue at two different events in London today.

Meghan Markle and Duchess Kate's Best look of the year

Kate, 37, arrived at the launch of the National Emergencies Trust in London’s St Martin-in-Field this morning wearing a belted long-sleeved midi dress by one of her go-to British designer’s: Emilia Wickstead.

The so-called ‘fit and flare’ silhouette is a favourite of Kate’s, who has worn similar A-line dresses in numerous shades over the years.

The mum-of-three, who was accompanied by Prince William, appeared to braving the autumn chill in very thin, nude tights and accessorised with black patent stilettos and a matching clutch from Aspinal of London.

The trust is set up to work collaboratively with charities and other organizations to direct public donations to specific appeals and to distribute funds fairly and efficiently at the time of a national emergency. It follows the concept of the Disasters Emergency Committee, which has been the U.K. response to many overseas disasters for more than 50 years.

After two years of solo appearances, Prince Harry was joined by his wife Meghan Markle at the Field of Remembrance service at Westminster Abbey on Thursday.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex took part in the annual event that is part of a series of ceremonies leading up to Remembrance Sunday, which will see the entire royal family step out for a poignant ceremony. The Field of Remembrance is a place where former service men and women, as well as members of the public, can plant a cross carrying a personal message in memory of those who have lost their lives in action.

Meghan wrapped up in a navy ensemble paired with a matching fascinator from her go-to milliner, Philip Treacy. She also wore the Remembrance Poppy — an artificial flower that has been used since 1921 to commemorate military members who have died in war. The poppy symbol is believed to have come from the poem “In Flanders Fields” by John McCrae, a poem about World War I that includes a memorable line about fields of poppies. The royal family proudly wears their pins when they honor armed forces who sacrificed their lives. It is worn on the left to symbolize that those who died are close to your heart
