Kate Middleton Wore Queen Elizabeth's Signature Pearls at Buckingham Reception

Queen Elizabeth was rarely seen without the elegant necklace, with the Queen’s former assistant private secretary, Sam Cohen, telling People that the late monarch preferred simplicity with her day-to-day jewelry. “She wasn’t interested in material things at all. She wore the same pearl necklace every day,” Cohen told the outlet.

Princess Kate has honored the late monarch through her jewelry choices throughout this week. The Buckingham reception marks the fourth time that Kate wore the queen’s classic diamond-and-pearl drop earrings. She previously wore them during a Thursday visit to Sandringham, as well as a Friday meeting with troops from the Commonwealth who are set to take part in the Queen Elizabeth’s funeral tomorrow.

The final vigil for the queen took place yesterday, with the late monarch’s grandchildren—Prince William, Prince Harry, Zara Tindall, Peter Phillips, Princess Beatrice, Princess Eugenie, Lady Louise, and James, Viscount Severn—standing beside the queen’s coffin at Westminster Hall. The queen’s televised state funeral takes place tomorrow, September 19, at Westminster Abbey in London.
