Duchess of Cambridge A model of dignified grace was presented at Prince Philip’s funeral on Saturday, with the Queen and her late mother-in-law being wrapped in a hug for good measure.
Kate Middleton was wearing a chic black $ 2,000 Roland Morrett dress at her first royal funeral with an asymmetrical neckline, a simple black mask and a pill box hat with a pure veil. She previously wore the dress at an event in 2018.
The attention-grabber, however, was around his neck, Daily Mail reported.
As a tribute to both the queen and princess Diana, 39-year-old Middleton, the late mother of her husband Prince William, wore a pearl bran from one of Her Majesty’s personal ornaments.
A four-row necklace with diamond clasp was made at the request of the queen with Japanese beads given as a gift by the Japanese government. The queen wore a necklace in the 1980s and 1990s, including the 70th birthday dinner of former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in 1995.
Kate played Bran at the 70th wedding anniversary dinner of Queen and Prince Philip at Windsor Castle in 2017.
Her late mother-in-law Princess Diana wore the same necklace in 1982.
Diana, who was reportedly in love with pearls, borrowed baubles during a Dutch royal family’s UK visit to a banquet hosted by Queen Beatrix and Prince Claus of the Netherlands at Hampton Court Palace.
Middleton completed the ensemble with drop pearl earrings which is also Queen’s.
During Diana’s funeral, a different gesture was made for Diana with the song “Rosimedre” by Vaughan Williams. A traditional British folk song was also played at Princess Diana’s funeral in 1997, The Sun reported. Prince Philip was close with Diana and attempted to make her feel accepted by the royal family.
