I agree with you. It's good to see major jewels been worn by Kate but I think this is ill matched. The delicacy of the pink gown also seems to require a lighter touch in the accompanying jewels.

Ithink the startiong point her was the Greville necklace. The Lovers Knot is her main tiara now. The earrings are just bridging the gap between them, and the dress is in in a supporting role

Catherine is also wearing Diana's earrings. The same earrings Diana used to wear with Queen Mary's Lovers Knot Tiara.

I agree with you.
She looks amazing, the tiara and earrings (so delighted to see these pearls again!) together are exquisite.
The dress and necklace together is a wonderful combination!
But altogether... to me it is just screaming mismatched! But the jewellery is so fabulous, I suppose one must forgive all!
Major points awarded though for glittering in family jewels.

I think [in this case] the three stones work together, as with the Rubies 'chime' with the pale Pink gown, and [under artificial light] Pearls will pick up the Pink and reds, and take on a pinkish cast themselves.
It is a delight to see this long unworn necklace again, and with the plunging neckline it demands..
Bravo, Ma'am.

She looked stunning, imo. I'm so excited to see that necklace on her, it fits great with that gown. Her elegant chignon was great for the serious tiara, which Queen Mary's lover's knot definitely is. And Diana's earings, as the cherries on the icing.

I quite agree with you, in looking at the color of her gown, I can't decide if it is lavender, pink or what color it is. The best bet would be diamonds and rubies as I am a ruby lover of that gem stone. All 3 of the gem stones take away from each other...to much going on there, as they say, less is more!

And a low cut gown for a state event? Will I be burned at the stake for that comment? IMO that would of been more for a private event instead of a royal event.

So happy to finally see the DoC wearing the same jewels I used to see Diana wearing all the time...even though it kind of puts a lump in my throat. Gosh I miss that lady!

Kate looks amazing in them.

Wow so is she going to get all of Diana jewels? I thought Harry and William will split all the jewels in half? Also, Is the necklace hers to keep as well?

A knock-out. A total thrill to see Diana's earrings.

She just dazzled tonight. Stunning and, yes, it's very touching that Catherine is wearing these jewels that her late mother-in-law once wore.

I think Kate can get away with the neckline because she's not busty.

It is quite nice to see the tiara and the earrings back together again!!


Kitty it is thought the boys split the jewelry ...not that they couldn't loan pieces out to each other's wives and since Harry is not yet married it's possible Kate is wearing pieces Harry chose...that said, I think this is the first piece of personal jewelry Kate has worn (other than the engagement ring) that belonged to Diana....and Diana had quite a bit of jewelry. I'm sure there's more to see in the future.

The necklace belongs to the Queen herself (not the BRF) so that will be left to whomever the Queen chooses...so we don't know who will get it yet.

If I'm not mistaken, Catherine has worn those pearl earrings on several occasions, both day and evening. And I will bet she has worn many pieces of Diana's personal jewelry that we just haven't noticed. I mean, none of us know ALL the personal jewelry Diana had in her collection, do we?

I also think Diana left her estate to both her boys and they haven't split anything since Harry has no use for her jewelry at the moment and I doubt there will be a problem in the future over which wife wants to wear what. After all, Kate will eventually have the run of the royal vault.
