Most of the time, Kate Middleton attends happy or uplifting official events for charities and holidays, but when you see her wearing this Alexander McQueen coat, be warned: It's probably not a happy occasion.

On Monday, she wore it to the funeral for Major General Gerald Cavendish Grosvenor, the late Duke of Westminster and close friend of the royal family who died at the age of 64 in August.

She paired the coat with an all-black outfit, including an angled, wide-brimmed hat, black pumps, and a matching clutch.

The only other instance in which the duchess was spotted in this jacket was at another solemn occasion: Remembrance Day in 2015. In the U.K., a two-minute silence is observed at 11 a.m. on the 11th day of the 11th month (November 11) to mark the end of World War One and honor the people who have died in conflict. To signify the importance of the date and time, Kate also pinned a remembrance poppy (the flower to commemorate servicemen and women killed in combat) to her lapel.

Safe to say if this coat makes another appearance, you'll know Kate's mood immediately.
