Kate Middleton is continuing her chic streak in France.
The Duchess of Cambridge turned heads once again while visiting a military-led World War I vigil on Thursday at the Thiepval Memorial to the Missing, which bears the name of over 70,000 British and South African servicemen who lost their lives in the war and have no grave.
Middleton, 34, donned a black, white, and gray zigzag-printed Missoni coat over a black dress for the somber occasion, styling her elegant ensemble with heels, pearl earrings and a black fascinator hat.
Along with her husband, Prince William, and his brother, Prince Harry, Middleton paid tribute to the Battle of the Somme, which was fought by the French and British armies against the German Empire from July 1 to Nov. 18, 1916. It was referred to as one of the bloodiest battles in human history, as more than one million men were wounded or killed.
The vigil was held on the "eve of the 100th anniversary of the start of the battle," as the official Kensington Palace Instagram page noted in a caption of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge taking in "the view across no man's land in Northern France, the scene of terrible human devastation."
Prince Harry later read W.W.I. poems to the crowd, including Lieutenant William Noel Hodgson's "Before Action." The piece was written just a few days before Hodgson was killed in battle on July 1, 1916.

Earlier this month, Middleton appeared just as classy as she attended day two of "Britain's most valuable race meeting," the Royal Ascot, in Ascot, England.
