Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, 37, dazzled at the awards ceremony at the Royal Albert Hall, London last night. The royal, who attended with her husband by her side, stepped out on the red carpet wearing an angelic one shoulder white gown by Alexander McQueen. The dress featured a floral design on the shoulder and cinched in at the waist, accentuating the Duchess’s petite frame. The skirt of the gown billowed out from the waist, reaching down to floor length.
She paired the dress with a pair of flattering silver Jimmy Cho Romy heels, priced at £525, which could just be seen peeking out from under the hem of the dress.
Alongside a cream-coloured clutch bag and a diamond bracelet, fans of the royal noticed her accessorising with an item of jewellery which once belonged to the late Princess Diana.
In a tribute to the Prince William’s mother, Kate donned a pair of dangling pearl earrings, which appeared the perfect choice to wear alongside the angelic gown.
One Twitter user, @TeaCambridges, noted this was the first time the Duchess has worn this particular pair of earrings.
Twitter user @hrhkatemeghan also tweeted to say Kate was wearing Diana’s Diamond and South Pearl dangle earrings.
The large pearl attached to the earrings are held up by fine silver detailing, following a leaf design.
Diana, Princess of Wales was photographed wearing these earrings on several occasions.
She was once pictured wearing them at an event at Bridgewater House in London on November 20, 1995.
This isn’t the only time Kate has opted to wear jewellery which once belonged to her husband’s mother.
Like many members of the royal family, Diana had an extensive jewellery collection, and just last month, in January, the Duchess of Cambridge wore a pair of her sapphire earrings during a visit to Dundee.
In December last year, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were pictured in the back seat of a black car, making their way to a private event at Buckingham Palace.
