Kate Middleton’s Poppy Brooch: What It Means + Where to Get ItNov 12, 2012 @ 11:41 am
Similar to the way Americans remember Veteran’s Day (it’s today!), the British have Remembrance Day, also known as Poppy Day, which the United Kingdom celebrated yesterday with a series of events. In London, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge attended a ceremony at the Cenotaph War Memorial in Whitehall, London, for which she wore her Diane Von Furstenberg black coat and Philip Treacy hat (both repeats), and accessorized her all-black outfit with an appropriately-themed poppy flower pin. The brooch, a piece covered in red and black crystals, is sold by the Royal British Legion, a non-profit organization that provides assistance to enlistees, veterans, and their families. You can pick up one of your own for $24 on poppyshop.org.uk.
