Kate Middleton and Prince Harry Chat Like Best Pals at the Anzac Day Service

It's time for the annual Anzac Day service, and in a surprise announcement, Prince Harry has joined Kate Middleton at Westminster Abbey. Kate looks gorgeous in a new Catherine Walker turquoise coatdress and green shoes with a matching fascinator, and the two entered the service looking like the best of pals—refuting rumors of a feud.

It's time for the annual Anzac Day service, and in a surprise appearance, Prince Harry has joined Kate Middleton at Westminster Abbey (opens in new tab). Kate looks gorgeous in a new Catherine Walker turquoise coat dress that's probably custom but bears resemblance to their "Amber" dress (opens in new tab) (ID originally by What Kate Wore (opens in new tab)), matching fascinator, and green shoes and clutch. The two entered the service looking like the best of pals—refuting rumors of a feud or feuds between the royal Fab Four.

In addition to giving us some pretty important insight into Meghan's status (opens in new tab) (she probably hasn't given birth yet, but she's close enough to her due date that Harry couldn't determine his plans until literally this morning), Prince Harry's presence gives us another lovely reminder of how well he and Kate get along. I've always loved the fact that they clearly seem delighted by each other's presence, no matter what drama (or potential drama) happens to be unfolding around them.

Here's a look at the full outfit (and the two friends!):

I'm intrigued by the contrasting shoe and clutch, but as always I love that Kate has gone more and more bold with color this year. Teal/turquoise is one of "her" colors, including that Jenny Packham dress (opens in new tab) that is my favorite thing she's ever worn. UPDATE: According to to royal reporter Rebecca English (opens in new tab), Kate's "Rebecca" shoes (opens in new tab) and "Natasha" bag (opens in new tab) are Emmy London, she's wearing Kiki McDonough earrings (opens in new tab) and matching white-gold Eden necklace (opens in new tab). The hat looks to be like it's Varick by Rosie Olivia (opens in new tab).

The Sussex Royal Instagram has given us a few more photos from the outing, as well as some shots from previous years (including pics of Meghan):

The service "will remember the [World War I] Gallipoli landings of 25th April 1915, and all Australians and New Zealanders who have given their lives in the service of their countries," according to Westminster Abbey's website (opens in new tab). The service occurs every year, and last year Meghan attended with Harry and William. It's Kate's turn this year! She and William were on their Australia/New Zealand tour on Anzac Day in 2014, and were able to see the gorgeous, poppy-filled World War I Wall of Remembrance.

Here's what she wore then, by way of comparison—a similar look, but more muted:
