How does a modern day princess curate her jewellery collection? By combining diamond tiaras with statement earrings and bespoke pieces by emerging British designers, of course. Take a look at our favourite glittering moments courtesy of the Duchess of Cambridge herself Kate Middleton.
For her wedding to the Duke of Cambridge, the Duchess wore a Cartier halo tiara borrowed from the Queen, and originally made for the Queen Mother in 1936. The Duchess paired the piece with bespoke earrings by Robinson Pelham.
For a reception at Calgary Zoo during the Royal Tour of Canada, she sported another heirloom: the Queen Mother’s maple leaf brooch.
At the premiere of Spectre at the Royal Albert Hall, the Duchess wore diamond, blue topaz and white gold Pagoda earrings borrowed from her mother Carole Middleton.
She wore an Air Cadets Dacre brooch to mark the 75th anniversary of the RAF Air Cadets.
For a diplomatic reception, she wore a lover’s knot tiara that belonged to Princess Diana.
On her sister Pippa Middleton’s wedding day, she wore Kiki McDonough earrings.
More earrings by Kiki McDonough, this time in special edition pink tourmaline and green amethyst, worn at the National Portrait Gallery Gala.
