With her fashion choices, Catherine, Princess of Wales is paying tribute to the late Queen Elizabeth II.

The former Kate Middleton has worn a number of pieces of jewelry belonging to the queen while honoring the monarch, and on Saturday, September 17, she wore one of the queen’s signature pieces to a luncheon with governors-general of Commonwealth countries.

She accessorized the three-strand pearl necklace with a straightforward black dress, a pearl bracelet, and a pair of the queen’s pearl and diamond earrings.

The princess of Wales wore a pearl brooch that the monarch was seen donning on her 73rd birthday as she accompanied the queen’s coffin to Westminster Hall on September 14. She additionally wore a pair of Princess Diana-previously-owned pearl earrings.

The queen has been pictured wearing the same pearl necklace that Kate was wearing on Saturday. She can be seen wearing it in photos from various events throughout her life, frequently combining it with other gorgeous statement pieces.

She posed with one of her cherished pets in 1970 while sporting the tri-strand of pearls, a sparkling brooch, and a boldly patterned blue dress.

The queen smiled while holding her grandson William, Prince of Wales, in 2003 while wearing the necklace on the Buckingham Palace balcony.

They were both observing the traditional Trooping the Color parade. Elizabeth wore pearl earrings, a pearl necklace, and another stunning pin. Her ensemble was completed by a royal blue jacket, a white hat, and gloves. Her grandson, who was only 21 years old, looked dapper in a black suit and blue shirt and tie.

She even once wore the same brooch that Kate wore for the procession to Westminster Hall with the necklace.

The pearl strand isn’t just for dressy occasions. The monarch wore the pearl necklace with matching earrings and a floral blue and white dress when she “met” British icon Paddington Bear earlier in 2022 over tea and marmalade sandwiches.

At a number of events during her recent Platinum Jubilee, which was earlier in 2022, the queen also wore the jewelry. She wore the necklace with a vivid green outfit and matching hat when she made a surprise appearance on the balcony of Buckingham Palace with other senior royals.
