So do I- or perhaps even a gift from Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall. (Although I agree that William is more likely) It very much looks like a welcome to the family gift- it's the monogram for her that's used by Clarence House, so my guess is that it's also on her official stationary, etc. It's a lovely bracelet.

I'm so glad that she seems to have an interest in jewelry after all! For a long time it didn't look that way but she's been wearing nice things lately- Diana's sapphire earrings, the queen mum's brooch and now this bracelet.

It's lovely to see Kate wearing a brooch! I'm also betting the bracelet is a gift from William, in imitation of the one given to Diana from Charles, and that he will add meaningful charms as occasions arise, too. Supposedly, the charm bracelet was Diana's most sentimentally precious piece of jewellery. I can't say I'm too fond of those earrings, though - they don't set off either her hat, coat or hair. I'm hoping more RF jewellery will be worn by Kate soon and I'd especially like to see her in another tiara. (While I thought the Scroll was great for the wedding, I think she needs something more imposing, especially if she keeps wearing her hair down.)

The brooch was a lovely gesture and looked great on the dress. The bracelet is really nice and simple and it's good to see her wearing something on her wrists. The earrings are nice and simple as well and don't detract from the outfit. All the jewels today were "spot on" IMO. Well done Duchess.

You know what? When you're right, you're right. I was surprised to see a brooch, but happy that it indicates an interest in wearing historic royal family jewelry. I don't like it as a fashion statement but I do like it as a sign that we may see more historical jewels on the Duchess in the future :)

Wearing a shamrock brooch in an Irish context is more than just a fashion statement, I think. The other royal ladies also are used to wear jewellery (especially brooches) which have a connection with the event. Now Kate is playing in the same league! I guess we might see a maple leaf brooch very soon.

Yes, I wouldn't want to imply for one moment that Kate was adopting this as a fashion item, but the importance of the occasion and historic significance aside, it doesn't look out of place as part of this outfit.

You are right, the brooch goes perfectly with the outfit. I would bet that Kate (or her stylist, if she has one) has thought very carefully about the combination. It's a great combination of fashionable elegance and simbolic meaning. Well done, Kate!
I guess, that one reason why I would like Kate to wear brooches more frequently, is that especially brooches often carry simbolic meaning. I just want to see a continuation of the royal tradition .

It seems the brooch belongs not to the RF but to the regiment and they gave it to her to wear...it has been worn by the Queen Mum and Anne but they didn't own it

While I personally don't really care for brooches, I think this was a lovely gesture on her part to wear it, it looked good and did not look out of place as it matched the gold buttons on her jacket. Will looked absolutely smashing, and dare I say the one time he looked better than Kate!!! LOL. (what is it about a man in a uniform??!!)

EDT: just looking (more like drooling LOL!) at the pics of Will again, I wish they hemmed his trouser legs to fit him better, it actually looks a little sloppy that they are slightly too long for him.

i like the broach detail. that means that she's very careful with details and always makes good choices. i think the bracelet was perfect for the outfit. and the earrings were perfect for her personality: less is more.

I agree with you there, but then again, I don't like earrings that hang. Brooch and bracelet I approve (not like it matters really). I'm wondering, is the bracelet silver or white gold? Her earrings looked like they were yellow gold, and the brooch too. It would clash if she wore a piece of silver jewelry with that.

I have to agree with you there. I don't think that your cypher for your notepaper, if that is what it is, should be worn on your wrist !

For me Catherine should have worn the Shamrock brooch a little nearer the center of her coat, it looks like an after thought to me ,but that is just my opinion

I'm a fan of charm bracelets since they can tell a story about the individual that is wearing a bracelet, give some hints to the relationship with the person who has gifted the charms and can build the story over years and decades. That said, the current charm reminds me a bit of the Tiffany Heart Tag Bracelet that was designed with the sole purpose of bringing the Tiffany brand to the pedestrian masses with a low cost item. I'll be interested to see how this bracelet evolves.

I liked it.

I would guess, if I had to, that it was a gift. I would further guess (all intuition and a little reading the signs, if you will) that it was a wedding gift from William.

Of all the relationships of which I am aware between a royal born and a royal made - there always seems to be a similar gift. To me, it speaks volumes - and I liked it. It made me smile.
