Duchess Kate is honouring Remembrance by sharing a special conversation she recently had! On Friday, the Duchess of Cambridge took to Instagram to post a clip from her meeting with Colonel David Blum OBE, a veteran who received the Italy Star after serving in World War II, at the Royal Chelsea Hospital.

Duchess Kate calls speaking to veteran "a true honour"

Duchess Kate kept her look simple and classy for the occasion. Her hair was in loose waves, and she wore a long black dress and poppy in commemoration of the day. Kate opened the conversation by asking Colonel Blum about reflecting on the impact of the war, with the veteran opening up about the personal losses he suffered.

"I have to say lost a few friends," he said, while Kate listened intently. "One in particular I remember, he was killed a few days before the war ended." The Duchess of Cambridge then talked to Emily, a 10-year-old Cub Scout who recently received the Centenary Remembrance badge. She told Kate about how she has been involved in Remembrance activities, including decorating the church clock tower with poppies and participating in parades and services.

Kate said it was "fantastic" how Remembrance continues to be relevant years after it was first created. She also shared some photos of the trio's conversation in a rare personal Instagram post. "It was a true honour to spend time with Colonel Blum and be able to thank him for the sacrifices he made for our country," the royal wrote, also congratulating Emily on her badge. Queen Elizabeth II will be making her first public appearance in several weeks on Remembrance Sunday, as it was reported that the royal has arrived back in Windsor.
