The reason Kate Middleton ‘deliberately’ wore Diana’s earrings ‘wrong way around’

The Coronation of King Charles III was a momentous occasion, and Kate Middleton, the Princess of Wales, captured the attention of royal enthusiasts not only with her stunning gown but also with her touching tribute to the late Princess Diana. The royal donned Diana’s exquisite pearl and diamond earrings, a cherished family heirloom, on this significant day.

While some viewers initially thought Kate had worn the earrings in the wrong orientation, a royal expert has suggested that this perceived ‘mistake’ was, in fact, a deliberate choice. According to the expert, Kate’s decision to wear the earrings differently was her way of ‘taking a new direction’ while simultaneously honoring Prince William’s late mother, Princess Diana.

The stunning Collingwood jewellery set, comprising the pearl and diamond earrings, was gifted to Lady Diana ahead of her wedding to Charles in 1981. After Kate’s marriage to William in 2011, this treasured family heirloom was passed down to her, much to her delight.

Speculation arose that the pearl earrings were the same pair Diana wore with her iconic ‘revenge dress’ following Charles’ affair with Camilla, adding further significance to Kate’s tribute.

The rumors about Princess Diana wearing the famous sapphire and diamond earrings at the Serpentine Gallery in 1994 have been disproven. However, the late Princess did wear these earrings to a fundraising dinner in Sydney in 1996, as well as at a Gala dinner hosted by the American Red Cross and during her tour of Korea.

Recently, when Kate Middleton wore the same earrings, some fans speculated that she had made a rare wardrobe mistake due to the positioning of the earrings. However, according to the Daily Mail, Kate intentionally put her own twist on the earrings, and it was not an error as many had assumed.

The Princess of Wales, from the very beginning of assuming her role, has shown a keen understanding of the historical significance it holds, as revealed by a palace source. However, Her Royal Highness also aims to forge her own unique path within this esteemed position.

For the Coronation, Kate Middleton donned an exquisite Alexander McQueen gown crafted from ivory silk crepe, adorned with intricate silver bullion and thread work embroidery featuring three-dimensional leaf motifs. While the official Coronation portrait provided a full view of the dress, her formal robe obscured most of the outfit during the ceremony itself.

Completing her dazzling ensemble, the Princess wore a stunning Jess Collett x Alexander McQueen leaf headpiece, perfectly complementing the smaller version worn by her daughter, Princess Charlotte. This coordinated accessory added a touch of elegance and cohesion to their regal appearances.

The young Princess Charlotte complemented her mother’s attire by wearing a matching Alexander McQueen dress, creating a harmonious visual connection. While the Princess of Wales did not have an official role during the Coronation ceremony, she was observed watching with evident pride as Prince William and her eldest son, Prince George, carried out their significant duties. Subsequent to the ceremony, Kate and William joined the procession back to Buckingham Palace, accompanied by George, Charlotte, and Louis, following behind the iconic gold state coach.
