The royal added a touch of glamour to her outfit with the Queen Mother’s sapphire and diamond fringe earrings, and recycled her £640 red suede bag by Miu Miu for the occasion, first worn in September 2016.

 Previous photos show the mother-of-three debuted a new red Catherine Walker coat dress for the outing, which featured a large bow detailing across the bodice before slipping it off to show off her festive cardigan. 

 The coat dress, thought to be worth around £3,000, is a new ensemble for the Duchess, who previously wore a black version of the coat to attend Prince Philip’s funeral in April. 

It was a family event for Duchess of Cambridge, with Carole Middleton (her parents) and her siblings James Middleton (her siblings), also present. 

The group were also joined by the Countess of Wessex, 55, Princess Beatrice, 33, and her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, Princess Eugenie, 31, and Zara, 40,  and Mike Tindall, 43,  at the service.

The queen, aged 95, wasn’t there.  The monarch was forced to cancel her annual pre-Christmas lunch this week  for the second year in a row due to the Coronavirus pandemic. 

She was planning to welcome 50 or so relatives, including Prince Charles and Camilla, to an event at Windsor Castle next week.

According to the website, attendees will be encouraged to use masks when they enter St Margaret’s Church and Abbey. Social distancing in small areas is discouraged.
