Due to the health crisis, the Victoria and Albert Museum had to close its doors to the public. The museum reopened its doors last May after long months of closure. The Duchess of Cambridge was invited to the event to see an exhibition on “Alice in Wonderland”. On December 2, Kate Middleton made her second appearance at the V&A Museum for a completely different exhibition. “Fabergé in London: Romance to Revolution” is the exhibition dedicated to the works of Pierre-Karl Fabergé. Three eggs belonging to Queen Elizabeth are among the works of art on display at the museum. The mosaic egg, the colonnaded egg and the egg in the Basket of wild flowers were “exceptionally loaned to the museum during the exhibition”, declares Histoires Royales.

But what left Kate in awe of Fabergé’s Third Imperial Egg. This is the egg made by the Russian jeweler for Alexander III. The egg had disappeared in 1964 and only reappeared in 2011. The circumstances of the egg’s reappearance are hazardous to say the least. It was a scrap dealer who bought the piece to remelt his gold, according to Histoires Royales. “The buyer then contacted the antique jewelry company Wartski who identified it as an Imperial Easter Egg,” the magazine confirms.

Two more Fabergé eggs impress Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton

Prince William’s wife shared photos of the Fabergé eggs that impressed her the most. By the way, you can’t miss her beautiful Ralph Lauren-branded blouse. In the photos, the Duchess presents beautiful shots of the Moscow Kremlin egg and the Alexander Palace egg. The Kremlin Egg, the one that contains a music box, was made in 1906 for Tsar Nicholas II. According to Royal Histories, “the egg is inspired by the Dormition Cathedral whose egg serves as the dome of the miniature cathedral”.
