In order to comply with the protocols of the pandemic, Prince Philip’s funeral was an intimate affair. Among them, the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton dressed in an all-black ensemble, including Rouland Mouret dress and veil charming. What stood out on the outside was the gorgeous pearl and diamond necklace she wore. Heirloom jewelry is considered to be laden with meaning.
According to the reports, the neckline of the statement originally belonged to the queen. For many years, Princess Diana also wore it in 1982. The report further stated that Kate herself wore it in 2017 when attending the Queen and Prince Philip’s 70th wedding anniversary dinner.
The report added that Japanese choker were carefully made according to the Queen’s specific instructions. The latter requires jewelry to be made from the “finest cultured pearls” gifted by the Japanese government.
Another photo that caught everyone’s attention was that during the funeral of Prince Philip, Queen Elizabeth II was sitting alone in the residence of St. George’s Chapel. They have been married for 73 years, and the queen even set an example of social distancing even in her mourning.
