Royal fans are convinced the Princess of Wales paid subtle tribute to the Queen at the Remembrance Service in London this morning.
The Princess of Wales, 41, debuted a new pair of statement pearl earrings as she appeared on the Whitehall balcony with Queen Camilla.
The mother-of-three looked elegant in a black military-inspired Catherine Walker coat – which she first wore in 2019 – and a matching hat with a large bow.
However, it was the royal’s statement pearl earrings – featuring the Prince of Wales feather design – that really caught the attention of royal fans.
On X, formerly known as Twitter, royal fan Giorgia pointed out how similar Kate’s earrings are to a brooch once belonging to the Queen.
The Italian social media user- who runs the account CoutureAndRoyals – said: ‘I think that The Princess of Wales is wearing earrings from the same demi-Parure as Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond & Pearl Leaf brooch.
‘We have never seen them before, or knew they existed, but the shape is the same as the leaves of the brooch.’
The Queen wore the statement brooch – containing three large pearls surrounded by diamond leaves – on her 73rd birthday during a visit to Seoul in South Korea.
In response, one follower gushed: ‘My mind went to the same brooch!!’ Another suggested: ‘Perhaps the brooch is detachable and the earrings are leaves from the brooch?’ This wouldn’t be the first time the Princess of Wales has personalised a piece of jewelry from the royal collection.
