The Duchess of Cambridge paid a touching tribute to the Duke of Edinburgh with her choice of jewellery.

She wore a pearl choker necklace owned by the Queen. Kate previously wore it in 2017 at a dinner marking the 70th wedding anniversary of Prince Philip and the Queen.

The necklace, which had four strands of pearls and a diamond clasp, and was a gift from the Japanese government, was also worn by Kate’s late mother-in-law, Diana, the Princess of Wales, at a banquet at Hampton Court Palace in 1982.

The Duchess of Cambridge also wore drop pearl earrings from Her Majesty’s private collection.

The Queen wore Queen Mary’s Richmond brooch, thought to be one of the largest in her collection, and particularly striking against the monarch’s all-black funeral outfit.

The brooch was made by Hunt and Roskell and given to Queen Mary as a wedding present in 1893 by the town of Richmond, according to The Court Jeweller website.

The piece is made of diamonds set with two pearls – a large round centre pearl, and a detachable pear-shaped pearl drop.

The Duchess of Cornwall wore the Rifles brooch, which she donned in July last year when Philip’s role as Colonel-in-Chief of the infantry regiment The Rifles was formally handed over to her.
