Kate Middleton wore two pieces from her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II’s jewellery collection, in a moving tribute to her, during the royal family’s first Remembrance Day since her passing.


Kate Middleton paid tribute to the Queen with her jewellery, as she joined senior members of the royal family over the weekend, to mark Remembrance Day. This poignant anniversary marks the family’s first, since Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth died. 

The mother of three attended the National Service Of Remembrance at The Cenotaph on November 13th and was pictured alongside the Queen Consort, wearing a black, structured dress and matching hat. Pinned to her dress were also three Remembrance poppies, which acted as the focal point of her look and comes just days after she was dubbed the 'Children's Princess' (opens in new tab) for gifting one of her poppy pins to a schoolboy. 

According to Hello! While the Palace has not confirmed why the family wears three poppies during the service, it s thought that they represent the three royal relatives who died during World War I.

Kate then accessorized her black ensemble with a beautiful pair of diamond pearl drop earrings, which once belonged to the Queen. The Bahrain pearl earrings were a favorite of the late monarchs, with Kate also opting to wear them to the state funeral of the Queen’s husband, Prince Philip in 2021.

The earrings are also made doubly special as they were also worn by Princess Diana on a number of occasions, notably in 1992 and 1995.
