In an episode of the BBC One show that airs tonight, December 16, the Duchess of Cambridge borrowed the monarch’s silver jubilee diamond and pearl earrings. This is a pair that was originally worn in 1977 to celebrate the Queen’s 25 years on the throne — a.k.a. her silver jubilee.
As previewed in a Kensington Palace Instagram post on Monday morning, the duchess wore these little stunners with a red Alessandra Rich dress, which features white polka-dots, a pussy bow top and a pleated skirt.
The Christmas baking special is a charity event in which the duchess and her husband Prince William team up with celebrity chef Mary Berry to cook a special dinner for staff and volunteers at different charities.
The mom of three seems to be a fan of her grandmother-in-law’s jewelry. Earlier this month she was spotted donning another pair of the Queen’s earrings for a NATO event held at Buckingham Palace on Wednesday, December 4. Middleton accessorized a long-sleeve, high-neck Emilia Wickstead gown with a favorite one of her majesty’s diamond drop earrings, which were also seen on the royal for a gala dinner in November 2017 as well as a dinner in Norway in 2018.
With that being said, Middleton knows how to find her own statement-making pieces as well. Just last week on Wednesday, December 11, she stepped out with a huge new diamond ring no one has seen before. The item includes a cluster of diamonds surrounding one giant center stone for a bling moment unlike any other. She only made it even grandeur by also rocking the Lover’s Knot tiara, a diamond-encrusted Nizam of Hyderabad necklace and matching earrings from the Diamond Chandelier Drop Demi-Parur set.
