The Princess of Wales steps out in Princess Diana's earrings and a poignant brooch
The Princess of Wales stepped out in two pieces of poignant jewellery to mark Commonwealth Day.
The Prince and Princess of Wales joined the The King and Queen Consort for the annual Commonwealth Day Service held at Westminster Abbey. They were also joined by the new Duke and Duchess of Edinburgh, the Princess Royal, and Vice Admiral Sir Timothy Laurence.
For the occasion, the Princess and Prince William coordinated in elegant navy blue looks. Kate opted for a skirt suit composed of a pleated peplum blazer with a floral print in white and large buttons at the centre. She paired the beautiful piece with a matching midi skirt, which featured the same print in reverse—white with navy florals—underneath.
Kate further elevated the springtime ensemble with a blue suede hat that had a bow on the side, a matching suede clutch and gloves, and blue suede pointed-toe pumps.
She kept the monochrome going by wearing her sapphire-and-diamond engagement ring from Prince William, as well as the late Princess Diana’s iconic sapphire-and-diamond earrings, which she has worn various times over the years. Her final accessory was Queen Alexandra's Three Feathers Brooch. The gorgeous piece, made up of diamonds, emeralds, and rubies, features the Prince of Wales feathers emblem.
Kate first wore the meaningful brooch at the first state visit of King Charles's reign in November 2022. Past Princesses of Wales, including Princess Diana and The Queen Consort, also wore it on special occasions. Diana often wore it as a pendant.
Prince William coordinated with Kate in an all-blue look. It was made up of an elegant navy suit, a crisp white shirt, a cornflower blue tie, and shiny black dress shoes.
Photos show the pair standing directly behind The King and Queen Consort at the Commonwealth Day Service. The monarch wore a grey pinstriped suit, a white shirt, a silver printed tie, and black dress shoes. Camilla, meanwhile, wore a bright cobalt blue coat dress, a matching hat with feathers, black sheer tights, black pumps, and a matching clutch.
