Duke, Duchess of Cambridge join Queen for Gallipoli anniversary ceremony

Duchess Kate capped off a quiet birthday weekend with a visit to church commemorating the 100th anniversary of World War I's Gallipoli campaign.

Just one day after she turned 34, the Duchess of Cambridge joined Prince William, Queen Elizabeth, Prince Phillip and the Middletons at St. Mary Magdalene's church on the Queen's Sandringham Estate Sunday.

During the service, the Queen and Prince Philip laid wreaths down on a stone memorial and took part in a minute of silence in honor of the roughly 100,000 people who lost their lives in the WWI battle, which raged for eight months from April 1915 to January 9, 1916.

Kate wore the same tweed suit and decorative black hat she wore attending church services at Sandringham the day after Christmas.

As on their most recent church outings, little Prince George and baby Princess Charlotte stayed warm at home.
