Kate was last seen wearing this choker-like pearl necklace to the funeral of Queen Elizabeth, and also at Prince Phillip’s funeral.
In the past, Diana has worn this statement necklace too, making it canonical in the royal jewellery draw.
The Four Row Japanese Pearl Choker includes four rows of pearls with a central diamond clasp in a curved shape, and each side features three rows of diamonds that join at the top and bottom with marquise diamonds.
Queen Elizabeth II first loaned it to Kate in 2017.
However, this time, she opted for different earrings than she wore the choker with the funeral.
The earrings previously belonged to Princess Diana, and Kate seems to pull them out for big occasions, such as The Passchendaele Commemorations in Belgium.
Wearing pearls has historical significance dating back to the Victorian age, as Queen Victoria wore them for 40 years after the death of her husband Prince Albert in 1861, allegedly to symbolise tears.
They’re now seen as ‘mourning jewellery’, so it’s fitting that Kate opted for them as the coronation of King Charles continued – but perhaps an unusual choice for a celebratory day.
