A symbolic tribute. As she has been used to for years now, Kate Middleton has soberly honored the memory of Lady Di on the sidelines of the G7. A few days ago, the Duchess of Cambridge spent a day with the great leaders of this world. After visiting an elementary school with Jill Biden, Prince William’s wife joined Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Charles and Camilla Parker-Bowles to participate in the Big Lunch Initiative. At the Eden Project to receive the American presidential couple, Kate Middleton wore a white dress from Alexander McQueen, her favorite designer. And a strong symbol was hidden under the sleeves of her garment … since the Duchess had put on a very important bracelet.
For this party, Kate Middleton wore a three-row bracelet, made of pearls and diamonds, having belonged to her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana. As People noted, the Princess of Hearts has been seen with this piece designed by designer Nigel Milne on several occasions, most notably during a visit to Hong Kong in 1989. And this isn’t the first time that the mother of George, Charlotte and Louis thus honors Lady Diana since she had already worn this bracelet on several occasions, during a reception in Berlin in 2017 and again during her royal tour in Sweden in 2018. And if Kate Middleton, like Meghan Markle, regularly wear the jewelry of the mother of princes William and Harry, it is because it was Lady Di’s wish.
What jewelry does Lady Di own Kate Middleton?
“I would like you to distribute my personal property at your discretion between my sons and godchildren, the distribution being three quarters for my sons and one quarter for my godchildren, wrote Lady Di in her will. I would like you to allocate all my jewelry to the part held by my sons, so that their wives can in due time own or use them. I leave the exact division of the jewels to your discretion. ” Kate Middleton therefore received the famous sapphire engagement ring from her mother-in-law and the matching earrings. Meghan Markle, she wears a classic ring today, which features an aquamarine stone. During this reception, the wife of Prince William in any case caused a sensation! But also makes cringe of the defenders of the protocol, very annoyed by the small nickname with which she called her father-in-law.
