Arriving in two separate vehicles, Kate Middleton in Queen Consort Camilla’s car and Meghan Markle in a car following them, the princesses were dressed in a similar look, wearing a black veil fascinator, as well as a matching coat and dress. However, in Kate Middleton’s buttonhole was a unique piece of jewelry that marks a real difference with her sister-in-law.

Managing to put their differences aside, Kate, William, Meghan and Harry appeared united before the Queen’s subjects a few days ago, which represented a strong symbol, after months of feud and estrangement between the brothers and the sisters-in-law. This September 14, although they arrived in separate cars, Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle appeared together, following closely at Westminster Hall, dressed in similar outfits as during their reunion and both wearing the Queen’s jewels or donated by the late sovereign. Kate Middleton, new Princess of Wales like her mother-in-law Lady Diana, wore earrings belonging to Sovereign Elizabeth II. Prince William’s wife was dressed in a long black dress topped with a thin coat at the buttonhole of which was pinned one of Queen Elizabeth II’s most famous brooches, made up of three leaves, highlighted in yellow gold and bearing in their center a pearl marbled with small diamonds. As Gala notes, this is not the first time that Kate Middleton has worn this brooch, the previous one was in 2017. Queen Elizabeth II herself had worn it only once, in South Korea, in 1999 according to our colleagues. Just like Kate Middleton, Meghan Markle also wore a very sober outfit also consisting of a black dress and coat, dark tights and a bag carried in her hand, as well as pearls offered by Queen Elizabeth in her ears .
Although they hardly exchanged a glance, the two sisters-in-law wore a black fascinator topped with a veil, which they were the only ones in the royal family to wear. While Meghan Markle had her hair up in a bun, as usual, Kate Middleton had let go of her long hair, under her hat. Very dignified and sober, the Princess of Wales and the Duchess of Sussex managed to attract attention without jostling, and without the shadow of a competition, which would have been particularly badly seen by the British, given the circumstances.
