Princess of Wales rewears pair of £75 statement earrings to launch new campaign
The Princess of Wales stunned in a bright red suit at the launch of her new 'early years' campaign last night – but it was her earrings that really made a statement.
At the event, held at BAFTA in London, the royal mother-of-three, 41, stood out in a striking Alexander McQueen two-piece.
She wore the designer brand's Leaf Crepe Drop Hem Jacket, costing £1,390, and matching Narrow Bootcut Trousers, priced at £590 – both in the shade 'Welsh Red'.
However, her handmade gold jewellery was significantly more affordable, costing £75 from London-based label CHALK.

According to the brand's website, the earrings are inspired by the "regal forms from the ornate details and geometry found within the main stage auditorium ceiling of the Royal Opera House".
The princess – who attended the launch of her 'Shaping Us' child development initiative alongside her husband, Prince William – has worn them before.

She previously enlisted the earrings to dress up a white suit for a royal engagement in Brixton to mark Windrush Day last June.
At the time, Chalk posted on Instagram to reveal that they had received a spike in orders following the royal endorsement.
Founder Malaika Carr wrote: "I just wanted to say a massive thank you for all your messages, support, follows and orders! It’s been an unforgettable week! I will cherish this moment forever."
It's not the first time that the princess has worn affordable earrings during royal outings – with her opting for an £8 pair from Accessorize at Hampton Court Palace back in 2019.

Then, in 2021, she chose a pair of £15 hoops from Orelia for a visit with her husband to a farm in Durham.
Her new 'Shaping Up' awareness drive aims to draw attention to the importance of a child's social and emotional development up to the age of five.
