The Queen, who appeared to be visibly moved during part of the ceremony at the Cenotaph, gathered her poppies with the Dorset Bow Brooch, another jewel that belonged to Queen Mary.

Kate kept her jewelry very simple, wearing resin pearl button earrings from Oscar de la Renta. (More on the earrings over here.) The gold-plated earrings coordinated with the military-style buttons on her coat.
