OMG, Kate Middleton Wore Princess Diana’s Earrings to The BAFTA!
Move over all the chatter around BAFTA winners, here’s something from the event that will truly make you cry — The Duchess of Cambridge, a.k.a Kate Middleton was wearing earrings that her mother-in-law, Princess Diana, once wore and literally owned them!
According to The Telegraph, the earrings feature a double curve of various cuts of diamonds, with a cluster of marquise-cut stones in the centre, from which hangs a single pearl. Princess Diana wore this earring with sizeable, silver-toned South Sea pearl drops on several black-tie occasions.
Princess Diana left her jewellery to her sons, in order that their future wives may wear and enjoy it. And, true to her wishes, the Duchess of Cambridge attended the BAFTAs wearing the same diamond earrings from her mum-in-law’s collection!
The Duchess of Cambridge — wearing an off-the-shoulder Alexander McQueen dress was a vision in white. Her husband Prince William is the current President of BAFTA, and he presented the BAFTA Fellowship to film editor Thelma Schoonmaker at the award ceremony held at London's Royal Albert Hall.
