Catherine Middleton, Princess of Wales, paid tribute to Queen Elizabeth II at her funeral by wearing a beautiful piece of jewelry once part of the late monarch’s collection (via Us Weekly). The string of pearls had another special meaning behind it, as Princess Diana once wore the same one in the 1980s.
In Kate’s first public appearance since the funeral, she paid another sweet tribute, Page Six reports. When meeting with palace staff and volunteers who helped out with the queen’s funeral service, she chose to wear the same coat she was seen wearing following the funeral service of Prince Philip last year.
Kate has worn the black Dolce and Gabbana coat a few times before, but it appears that she specifically chose this outfit during her outing to pay tribute to both the queen and Prince Philip. The Princess of Wales makes a habit of showing sentimental tributes to the royal family in her fashion choices.
