Kate’s Jubilee jewellery spotted at Air Cadets visit is 95th birthday tribute to Queen

622

KATE, Duchess of Cambridge, paid a sweet tribute to the Queen, while visiting 282 East Ham Squadron, Air Training Corps in East London on Wednesday.

The Duchess decided to don a pair of diamond and pearl earrings that were first worn by the Queen during her Silver Jubilee in 1977.

At the time, the Queen paired them with her pink Hardy Amies outfit and famous Simone Mirman flower hat.

The British monarch no longer wears the earrings in public and loans them out to Royal Family members.

The Countess of Wessex appeared to be sporting the earrings at the wedding of Luxembourg’s Hereditary Grand Duke in 2012.

The Duchess of Cambridge was first spotted wearing the same jewellery items during a visit to Canada in 2016.

When she was again photographed wearing them on a visit to the Netherlands, Buckingham Palace officially confirmed that the Queen had loaned her the earrings.

Prince Philip served as Air Commodore-in-Chief of the Air Training Corps for 63 years until 2015.

In line with the traditional mourning period for the Royal Family, the Duke and Duchess were dressed in black.

Kate opted for a sleek black coat from the designer Dolce & Gabbana, that retails at approximately £2,349.

The calf-length ebony coat offers a sophisticated shape, with shoulder pads and a synched waist.

It was complete with eye-catching gold buttons down the centre.
