The earrings belonged to Princess Diana and Kate previously wore them in a Remembrance Day parade

She recently took some portraits to celebrate her 40th birthday on January 9 this year.

For this, the Duchess stylized an Alexander McQueen with very special jewelry.

In one of the photos, Kate is wearing a one-shoulder red satin dress that matches Queen’s Diamond Frame earrings.

The other two photos were in black and white, where she wore items that were once sported by another prominent royal.
