Royal Family Attend Commonwealth Day Observance Service at Westminster Abbey


The BRF was out in full force this afternoon at Westminster Abbey to attend the Commonwealth Day Observance service. The Duchess of Cambridge was all smiles in front of the cameras with Prince Charles (see Daily Mail for photos).

For all those thinking that the Duchess of Cambridge wearing pink is a sign that Prince George can expect a little sister next month, remember that she wore the very same outfit at the Trooping the Colour ceremony back on June 15, 2013 – just about a month before the birth of Prince George.

Just a reminder that the Duchess of Cambridge has a busy week ahead, likely her last set of engagements prior to resting before the birth of her second child:

Monday, 3/9: Observance for Commonwealth Day at Westminster Abbey

Wednesday, 3/11: Visit to Turner Contemporary Art Gallery in Margate

Thursday, 3/12: Downton Abbey set visit

Friday, 3/13: Service of Commemoration at St. Paul’s Cathedral honoring those who served in Afghanistan

Perhaps the Duchess of Cambridge will make her final engagement for St. Patrick’s Day on Tuesday, 3/17.
