Wow, the internet has lost its chill.
- Royal fans are accusing Kate Middleton of trying to upstage Meghan Markle with the earrings she wore to Archie’s christening.
- Kate wore the Collingwood Pearl earrings, which Princess Diana wore to Prince Harry’s christening back in 1984.
Your fave royal bundle of joy Master Archie was christened over the weekend, and Meghan Markle and Prince Harry released exactly one group photo from the event. And naturally it’s managed to cause drama. Not only is everyone accusing Prince William of making a “sour” face, a body language expert claims Kate Middleton wanted to “flee,” and now the Duchess of Cambridge’s earrings are causing insane amounts of ~royal feud~ chatter on social media.

In a lovely tribute to her late mother-in-law, Kate decided to wear the Collingwood Pearl earrings—which Diana wore for Prince Harry’s christening in 1984. In other words, Kate was giving a sweet nod to both Harry and his mom with these earrings. What could possibly be dramatic about that?

Well, according to extremely extra royal fans, literally everything. Twitter is full of people who seem to think it was inappropriate of Kate to wear these earrings instead of lending them to Meghan Markle, and also claim Kate was trying to upstage Megs. Which…like…no.
I think Kate wanted to upstage Meghan. With all the earrings at kates disposal, why did she wear the one that Diana wore during Harry’s christening? Personally, I would have given Meghan that earring.
Attention seeking at a Sussex Family event. Meghan would be roasted for this type of tacky move. Evoking Diana’s special moment with Harry at his son’s Christening? This simply wasn’t her role today. As the haters always say….know your place.
Exactly. When Meghan attended Louis christening she wore olive green and blended in the background so Kate and L could have their moment that’s all Kate had to do. It would have been gracious if she let meg borrow earrings for the day 16 9:54 AM – Jul 7, 2019 Twitter Ads info and privacy See teresa holmes’s other Tweets
In all honesty I think Kate was a tab bit disrespectful and spiteful . she didn’t have to come there dress the way she was and sporting PRINCESS Diana earrings. I believe she did that intentionally to upstage Meghan special moment.
Okay so a few things:
First of all, we don’t know for sure that that Kate didn’t offer these earrings to Meghan for the event. But more importantly, as royal fan account The Mountbatten-Windsors notes, the fact that Kate wore the Collingwood Pearl earrings to Archie’s christening “shows how thoughtful she is and pus all those nasty trolls in their place who say that William and Catherine don’t care enough. This is the biggest but most subtle way of saying that they do in fact care about their nephew.”
