Kate Middleton used her accessories to pay touching tribute to Queen Elizabeth and Princess Diana at King Charles III's coronation.
The king's and Queen Camilla's coronation was held at Westminster Abbey on Saturday, with over 2,000 guests, including almost every member of the royal family, attending the historic event.
Prince William, the Princess of Wales, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis processed into the event together.
William and Kate's eldest son, Prince George, walked with King Charles, as he served as one of his four pages for the day.
Kate arrived in a formal blue cape with an ivory dress under it that was designed by Alexander McQueen, according to the Daily Mail.
The dress was adorned with silver, floral embroidery that represented the four nations of the United Kingdom: roses for England; thistles for Scotland; sham-rocks for Northern Ireland; and daffodils for Wales, which she was created a princess of on September 9, 2022.
Alexander McQueen is a go-to designer for the Princess of Wales.
She wore a coatdress from the designer at Queen Elizabeth's funeral on September 19, 2022.
Kate paired the dress and cape with a white headpiece that was designed by Jess Collett in collaboration with Alexander McQueen.
The princess also wore pearl and diamond earrings that belonged to Princess Diana to the service, honoring her mother-in-law.
Princess Diana was the last person to hold the title Princess of Wales before Kate.
She also paid tribute to Queen Elizabeth with a necklace, as she wore the George VI Festoon Necklace, with three strands of diamonds.
King George gave the gift to Queen Elizabeth when she was still a princess, according to the Daily Mail.
Kate often uses her jewelry to nod to members of the royal family, so it's no surprise she made sure to pick jewelry with meaning for the coronation.
