Kate Middleton pays sweet tribute to Princess Diana at G7 dinner with pearl and diamond bracelet
MUCH has been discussed in recent days about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s poignant gesture in giving their baby daughter the middle name Diana.
Now, Kate Middleton has paid her own sweet tribute to the late Princess of Wales – who would have turned 60 years old on July 1 – at last night’s G7 dinner.
The Duchess of Cambridge, 39, wowed in a £3,000 white double-breasted coat dress by Alexander McQueen for the glamorous evening event at the Eden Project in Cornwall.
She finished off her look for the occasion – which she attended with her husband, as well as the Queen, Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall – with nude heels and a simple white clutch bag.
However, eagle-eyed royal fans will have noticed the mum-of-three’s beautiful three-strand pearl bracelet.
The elegant accessory – by designer Nigel Milne – once belonged to Diana, who was seen wearing it on numerous occasions.
This includes a 1989 visit to Hong Kong when she wore a pearl-embroidered ‘Elvis’ dress and the Cambridge Lover’s Knot tiara.
The Duchess of Cambridge has slipped on the bracelet for official engagements in the past.
Prince William’s wife was spotted in it at a 2017 reception in Berlin, and also during the 2018 royal tour of Sweden.
As well as the bracelet, she is also in possession of the princess’ engagement ring.
The sapphire and diamond piece was left with Prince Harry after his mum was killed in 1997.
However, he passed it to his older brother William, ahead of his proposal to Kate in 2010.
The 12-carat oval Ceylon sapphire is surrounded by 14 diamonds and set in 18-karat white gold.
According to Vogue, it is based on a brooch that Prince Albert asked the jeweller Garrard to create for his future wife, Queen Victoria, back in 1840.
