Prince Philip’s funeral: Kate Middleton’s pearl and diamond necklace was a tribute to the Queen


According to pandemic protocols, Prince Philip’s funeral was an intimate affair. Among others, the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton was seen in an all-black ensemble consisting of a Rouland Mouret dress and a veiled fascinator. What stood out in the look was the beautiful pearl and diamond necklace she wore. It is believed that the heirloom jewel is loaded with meaning.

According to a report in The daily mail, the statement necklace originally belonged to the Queen. And over the years, it has also been worn by Princess Diana, in 1982. The report further states that Kate herself wore it in 2017, while attending the Queen and Prince Philip.

The Japanese choker, the report adds, was made with specific instructions from the Queen. The latter had asked that the jewel be made from the “most beautiful cultured pearls”, offered by the Japanese government.
