Kate sends ‘painful’ message to Meghan Markle in Remembrance Sunday photo, expert says


The Princess of Wales was pictured alongside Camilla, Queen Consort at the sombre occasion, the first since the Queen’s death.

Writing for news.au, Ms Elser pointed out the last time Kate such a combination of jewels was at the Queen’s funeral in September, with Meghan wearing a similar pair of earrings which she too received from Her Majesty.

Ms Elser said: “Look at images of the royal WAGs side-by-side and the vast discrepancy is obvious.

“While Kate’s pair are honking great pieces that on anyone else you would assume are plastic fakes they are so large, Meghan’s pair, while elegant and a very thoughtful gift from the late nonagenarian, are comparatively tiddly.

“In this case, size does matter. There is also the question of their history and significance.”

She added: “Maybe, if Meghan and Harry had stayed put in the UK, this jewellery situation might have changed and the Duchess of Sussex might have ended up, like Kate, Camilla and Sophie, Countess of Wessex, regularly adding sparkle to her outfit du jour with a few baubles from the official horde. (Lord only knows how many diamonds, rubies, emeralds and sapphires they really have squirrelled away in the Palace.)

“But, Meghan never quite made it into the royal bling ring.”

“Instead, to paraphrase the eternal words of Destiny’s Child, “she buys her own diamonds and she buys her own rings.”The 2022 National Service Of Remembrance At The Cenotaph

The only other royal to be allowed to borrow the same jewels Kate wore was Princess Diana, Ms Elser pointed out. 

The Duchess of Sussex was given by Her Majesty in 2018.

The Remembrance Sunday service was the first held since the Queen’s death.

Kate and Camilla were pictured standing side by side on the balcony of the Foreign Office, which ovelooks the Cenotaph, on November 13, with the Princess in particular looking emotional as she watched the wreaths laid in honour of the nation’s war dead.

The Bahrain pearl drop earrings meanwhile were a gift to the then-Princess Elizabeth when she married Prince Philip in 1947.

The earrings include a large round diamond with a smaller circle diamond also hanging below it.

Kate and husband William, Prince of Wales are taking part in a State Visit for the first time in their new roles, and today greeted South African President Cyril Ramaphosa at London’s Corinthia Hotel.

They then accompanied him to Horse Guards Parade, where the King and Queen Consort were waiting for their guest of honour under a dais.
