You Have To Know The Secret Meaning Behind Kate Middleton’s Pearl Choker
That’s one stunning heirloom piece!
One week since the passing of Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, the Royal Family has joined together for a morning service at St. George’s Chapel at the Windsor Castle. It was a tough moment for United Kingdom’s most esteemed and most watched family but the service only showed their togetherness. Little moments of joy showed in the the sartorial choices made by some of the 30 guests at the funeral. Kate Middleton, for one, came in attendance wearing a Roland Mouret dress, a veil, and a four-strand pearl chocker, a subtle tribute as the piece was worn by her late mother-in-law, Lady Diana.
The royal jewel is owned by Queen Elizabeth—so this little commemoration is more apt than ever. The chocker was a gift to the Queen by the Japan in the 1970s, and is made by Garrard. The Queen was seen wearing the stunning piece in the ‘80s to a visit in Bangladesh.
Lady Diana wore the same piece in 1982 in a state visit to the Netherlands. Little fashion snippets like this really do tell a story. In a difficult time for the Royal Family, these subtle tributes surely mean so much more than an accessory.
We send our deepest condolences to the Royal Family in this trying time.
