There are some items of clothing that you would never associate with Kate Middleton: Puma tracksuits, a PVC jumpsuit, Bottega Veneta Lido sandals, a Jacquemus mini Le Chiquito handbag.

For years, the Duchess of Cambridge has made a name for herself in the fashion stakes for choosing sharply-cut blazers, mid-length dresses and embellished gowns by the likes of Erdem, Catherine Walker, Jenny Packham and Marks and Spencer.

But the mother-of-three threw a sartorial curveball our way last night when she took to Zoom for a virtual tour of Clouds House, an addiction treatment facility in Wiltshire.

For the meeting, the Duchess wore a red polo shirt and her hair combed back into a half-up, half-down ‘do.

As a result, we caught a glimpse or a rather unusual accessory for Kate: a pair of gold hoop earrings.

HELLO! reports that the hoops are by UK jewellery designer Daniella Draper and can be personalised with shells, stars and feathers.


This isn’t the first time the royal is believed to have worn the accessory, with the publication noting that she wore them first during her royal tour of Ireland in March and customised them with now sold out shamrocks.

Months before, the royal sported a pair of gold hoops during a visit to Peterley Manor Farm in Great Missenden.

Kate appears to be a big fan of Draper’s work and also owns a personalised Gold Midnight Moon necklace from the brand which is engraved with her children’s initials.

The royal has been keeping her fashion fans up-to-date with her recent choice of attire during lockdown as the coronavirus pandemic continues in the UK.

In recent weeks, Kate and her husband Prince William have shared numerous videos of themselves on Zoom with members of the British public on their Kensington Royal Instagram account.

The conference calls have seen Kate wear a mustard-coloured puff sleeve Zara jumper, a red silk dress by Beulah and a blue chevron jumper by Tabitha Webb.
