KATE Middleton stunned as she arrived today at the Anzac Day Service as the Queen was seen smiling days after celebrating her 96th birthday.
The Duchess of Cambridge beamed as she arrived at Westminster Abbey to mark the day with Australians and New Zealanders.
Dressed in a cream jacket with matching hat, Kate paired the outfit with matching pearl earrings and a poppy.
She smiled as she arrived to join her husband at the annual commemorative service to mark the thousands of Anzac troops who died.
The Queen was also spotted grinning as she left Sandringham Estate in her car, spotted for the first time since her birthday last week.
Her Majesty has been staying at the state, in Norfolk, since arriving by helicopter and appeared in good spirits wearing a headscarf and glasses.

The ill-fated 1915 campaign saw thousands die after Allied forces launched an attack on the Turkish Peninsula – which was key to controlling the Dardanelles straits, the crucial route to the Black Sea and Russia.
But the plan backed by Winston Churchill, then the first lord of the admiralty, was flawed and the campaign, which faced a heroic defence by the Turks, led to stalemate and withdrawal eight months later.
Its legacy is the celebration of the "Anzac spirit" – courage, endurance, initiative, discipline and mateship – shown by the Antipodean troops.
The Duke of Cambridge remembered the “gallant comradeship”, saying in a statement: "As we pause to reflect on the sacrifice of the Armed Services personnel of Australia and New Zealand in two World Wars, and in other conflicts and peacekeeping operations, our thoughts will also be with those communities around the world who are being torn apart by violence and conflict, and those who are fighting for freedom in the face of oppression."
Hundreds took part in a parade, including members of veterans' associations, service and ex-service personnel and their families.
