Talk about making a sad day beautiful.

Kate Middleton, Prince William and Prince Harry were in Thiepval, France on Friday for a very somber occasion — but they did it in style.

The group were attending the Commemoration of the Centenary of the Battle of the Somme — July 1, 1916 – November 18, 1916.

Photographers snapped photos of  the group as they honored fallen soldiers from on of World War I’s bloodiest battles.

According to an ET report, the Battle of Somme took the lives of almost 20,000 British soldiers and injured another 40,000.

On the list of those who attended the ceremony were actors Charles Dance and “Harry Potter” star Isaac Rosenberg. In the wake of Brexit, Prime Minister David Cameron also gave a speech.

Despite the serious moment, Kate Middleton brightened things up in a stylish black and cream lace dress she paired with a red flower pin on her chest.

According to the news outlet, the royals also honored the the fallen soldiers on Thursday night as well. They attended a vigil held in France where Prince Harry read WWII poems.

Add this to the list of reasons why we love the Royals so much — they can pretty much do anything and make it look good.
