Kate Middleton Wears Hand-Me-Down Pearl Bracelet That Previously Belonged to Princess Diana
Prince William and Prince Harry inherited their mother's jewelry collection, and their wives have sometimes been seen wearing familiar pieces
Kate Middleton wore a special accessory for an evening with world leaders.
After spending the early afternoon feeding rabbits and meeting school children with First Lady Dr. Jill Biden, the royal joined Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall and Prince William at the G-7 summit on Friday. Kate changed from a raspberry pink dress from her earlier outing into an elegant white ensemble, complete with what appears to be a three-strand pearl and diamond bracelet that once belonged to her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana.
Diana wore the piece on several occasions, including her pearl-embroidered "Elvis" dress that she sported during a 1989 visit to Hong Kong - complete with the Cambridge Lover's Knot Tiara, which Kate has also worn.
Kate, 39, previously wore the bracelet by designer Nigel Milne during a 2017 reception in Berlin and again during her 2018 royal tour of Sweden.
Of course, Kate is usually sporting one particularly meaningful piece of Diana's - her blue sapphire and diamond engagement ring. Princess Diana picked the ring out after Prince Charles proposed to her, and Prince William popped the question with the same accessory in 2010.
