Kate Middleton recently stepped out wearing a pair of diamond and pearl earrings. Turns out, the earrings actually belong to Queen Elizabeth II.
The Duchess of Cambridge was attending a commemorative service on the occasion of Remembrance Day that is observed to honour the armed forces community, the British and Commonwealth veterans who were involved in the two world wars and in later conflicts.
Kate appeared in a black Alexander McQueen coat with big white buttons, and a black Philip Treacy hat, teamed with the egg-shaped pearls, reported harpersbazaar.com.
Queen Elizabeth was reportedly spotted wearing this pair of pearl earrings during a royal walkabout in 1977, in honour of the Silver Jubilee.
This is, however, not the first time that the Duchess was spotted wearing the Queen’s jewels. She was seen wearing the pair in 2019 at the Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall.
“The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge joined The Queen and Members of the Royal Family for the annual Remembrance Day Service at The Cenotaph,” Kensington Palace mentioned in its official Instagram account.
