Exactly my own thoughts, COESpiral. That necklace deserved to be showcased appropriately, but once again Kate's hair gets entangled and obscured it at times.

Wish Kate would wear her acorn earrings again as I rather liked them. I did think she would wear them for PG's christening (in that way making them her special family event earrings).

That necklace is stunning! Kate usually wears smaller pieces; so I'm pleasantly surprised to see her wear a larger piece.

What I have been reading here in the US, is that the Queen is making her upgrade some of her wardrobe and jewelry. William is getting more into the Family Business, and she needs to seriously upgrade her appearance a bit. I suspect that the Queen is far more informed of what we think of Kate's appearance than we thought.

It sounds like to me, she is no longer going to be able to get away with her usual attire and jewelry, especially when they go overseas in several months. Representing the Family, she is going to be in a lot more serious jewelry than in the past from what I have been reading.

I loved that necklace on her. I don't mind her leaving the back long, but if she would have just put up the front, it would have looked a whole lot more sophisticated. I am beginning to wonder if she is afraid of becoming too posh.

How appalling that her little girl hair and posture should accompany such a gorgeous piece of jewelry. Time to grow up!

Maybe everyone should write a polite letter to the Duchess and suggest she wear her hair up, or back in a chignon.

What a great necklace! I agree with the messy hair, obviously her hair is not what it used to be. It's too long and flat now that she's had the baby. If I were her I would consider getting a new hair stylist these hair dos are just making her look older imo.

BTW Kate is wearing a new ring, it looks to be a small eternity band. It's right after her engagement ring. Does anyone have a close up?

I think you can see the ring a bit better here. It seems like it's in front of her engagement ring-

I blew it up as much as I could and I only see two rings, her engagement ring which is made of platinum or white gold and her wedding ring with is either yellow or rose gold. The rings do have distinctively different colors.

Thats the same picture I posted. I think the light coloured band is the band of the engagement ring - which is still too big and turns on her finger. Good reason to have another ring!

I knew that and probably should have quoted your post too. Sorry, cepe, you're one of my favorite posters and don't want you feeling left out.

I think this is the first time we have seen the contrasting colors of the bands thus causing confusion. Wish my ring was a little looser on me - course it would be if I lost some weight.

Her Majesty The Queen is the main wearer of this necklace. She has worn this necklace for State Banquets, official portraits and the State Openings of Parliament. Too bad The Queen broke up the tiara because I can see Catherine pulling that off too.

I'm not sure but it is possible that she is actually wearing them. The bulbous bit at the end where is acorn is is much like the small lumpy bits seen through her hair.

I'm afraid not. There are plenty of pictures that show that she is wearing her "usual" diamond earrings, the ones with the matching bracelet. See weblink below and scroll down to see a clear picture of Catherine's earrings.

I have never seen her wear the acorn earrings other than at her wedding.

Glad others noticed the diamond eternity ring next to her engagement ring.
Kate Middleton adds sparkle to Portrait Gallery fundraiser with diamond necklace | Mail Online

Have to say I am not a fan of the Queen's diamond necklace - I saw this necklace displayed one time at Buckingham Palace and it is a solid heavy piece. On this occasion I don't think it work on Kate - her dress is very light and it just seems to chunky a piece for her. There are other 'lighter' necklaces that I would have preferred to see her being loaned - one is the Queens 21st south African diamond necklace or some of the Saudi pieces (even if that meant Kate and Diana would have been compared)
