Passchendaele 1917 Commemorations
30 July 2017
King Philippe and queen Mathilde joined the duke and duchess of Cambridge to attend the Last Post at the Menin Gate in Ypres.
Kate wore a hat with a white feather, such an odd choice for this occasion.
Clotilde Boël acted as lady-in-waiting.
Then they watched a BBC spectacle commemorating the centenary of the battle of Passchendaele - als known as the third battle of Ypres, at Ypres' Grand Place.
Afterards they visited the In Flanders Fields Museum where they met descendants of WWI veterans.
