The Duchess of Cambridge inherited some of her late mother-in-law’s most stunning pieces.
Princess Diana had an unrivaled jewelry box during her lifetime, so it's no surprise that many of her famous pieces of jewelry have been passed on to her daughters-in-law.
Both Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle have worn sentimental jewels from their late mother-in-law on numerous occasions, which is exactly in line with Diana's final wishes. Before her untimely death, the Princess wrote a "letter of wishes" that stated: " I would like you to allocate all my jewellery to the share to be held by my sons, so that their wives may, in due course, have it or use it. I leave the exact division of the jewellery to your discretion."
Here, we're taking a look at the most sentimental and stunning pieces of jewelry Kate inherited from Princess Diana.
1. Diamond and South Sea Pearl Earrings
These elegant diamond and pearl earrings were among Diana's favorite pieces of jewelry. Kate wore the earrings to the 2019 BAFTAs in London.
These earrings were originally a wedding gift to Princess Diana, part of a suite of jewels given by Crown Prince Fahd of Saudi Arabia. William gave the earrings to Kate after he proposed in 2010, and the Duchess updated the design into a drop style. They've become one of Kate's signature earrings through the years.
