Today, Kate Middleton and Prince William stepped out together in London to support the launch of the National Emergencies Trust, a new organization that focuses on responding to disasters in the U.K. For the event, the Duchess of Cambridge wore a dress by one of her favorite designers: Emilia Wickstead. The blue, long-sleeved number featured a belted waistline. She accessorized it with a poppy brooch to honor Remembrance Day, as well as a streamlined clutch and simple black Jimmy Choo pumps, another favorite label of hers. But it was her jewelry that gave the ensemble a special touch.
According to People, Middleton wore sapphire and diamond earrings that once belonged to Princess Diana. The earrings reportedly once featured a double-drop sapphire shape, though Middleton, who has worn the earrings before, appears to have modernized the style by opting for just one sapphire instead of two.
It’s not the first time the Duchess has paid homage to Princess Diana via fashion; for Middleton’s tour of Pakistan last month, she incorporated several ensembles that harked back to the outfits Princess Diana wore during her trip of the country in the ’90s. Notably, Middleton’s engagement ring is also a family heirloom — it’s the same ring that Princess Diana was given by Prince Charles.
