Princess Kate paid tribute to the late monarchs: Queen Elizabeth II and Princess Diana when she chose the jewellery to wear at King Charles III’s coronation on Saturday.
The Princess of Wales sparkled in the late queen’s George VI Festoon Necklace. The three-strand necklace was commissioned by King George VI in 1950 for his eldest daughter, Princess Elizabeth. During her 70-year reign, Queen Elizabeth II wore the dazzling diamond necklace at state banquets and international visits. And the 41-year-old royal also remembered her late mother-in-law by wearing Princess Diana’s Diamond and South Sea Pearl Earrings for the historic occasion. She recently wore elegant jewellery for the Remembrance Sunday service in 2022. How about her dress, you might ask? Princess Kate selected an ivory silk crepe Alexander McQueen dress with silver bullion and threadwork embroidery featuring roses, thistles, daffodils, and shamrocks. The embroidery is a sweet tribute to the national flowers of England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland. Meanwhile, Prince William and Princess Kate arrived at King Charles III’s coronation with their adorable kids. They all made their way into Westminster Abbey separately on Saturday for the 74-year-old monarch’s crowning.
