The Duchess wore a pair of earrings  that bare a resemblance to those of the Queen. And she looked stunning while wearing them.

The Queen Mary’s Floret Earrings, Her Majesty has been pictured wearing on very special occasions. They were gifted to Queen Mary as a wedding gift from Sir William Mackinnon in 1893.

And the monarch  subsequently inherited them following her death in 1953.

The royal has been seen wearing the earrings on multiple formal occasions such as the Garter Day ceremony and the State Opening of Parliament.

And on Monday, Kate wore pearl versions of the gorgeous design at her son’s christening.

Kate’s sister, Pippa, also wore floral stud earrings for the occasion. However, hers had a more modern gold style unlike Kate’s pearls.

Pippa and her big sister share a similar taste in fashion, as Pippa wore a stunning baby blue Alessandra Rich dress. It definitely looked similar to the Alexander McQueen frock that the Duchess wore at her wedding in 2017. The number featured a Peter Pan collar and button fastenings through the front which she matched with a coordinating hat, and off-white Jimmy Choo heels.

Buckingham Palace confirmed that the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh would not be attending the christening. And we also know that this has been planned ahead of time, with a mutual agreement between the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the Queen.
