Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton’s jewelry paid tribute to Queen Elizabeth II at the late monarch’s London service on Wednesday, September 14. Markle and Middleton joined Prince Harry and Prince William after the procession of the Queen’s coffin into Westminster Hall. Buckingham Palace. As a tribute to Elizabeth, Markle and Middleton each accessorized with black jewelry, which is associated with the Queen.
Markle opted for a bespoke Givenchy black capelet sleeve coat, matching sheer tights, Paul Andrew pumps, a black veiled fascinator hat, black leather gloves and a Lowe’s postal bag. She also accessorized with her gold Cartier love bracelet, her diamond wedding-ring stack and a pair of pearl and diamond drop earrings originally gifted to her by Queen Elizabeth II during their first solo outing in June 2018. The memorable trip was short. More than a month after Markle married Prince Harry on May 19, 2018. Rarely seen without her pearls, the Queen presented Markle with a set similar to her own, but smaller, and Markle promptly donned her cream Givenchy dress for the occasion. Four years later, Markle’s decision to wear earrings at the London service stands as a sartorial nod to their time together.
Middleton, meanwhile, paid her own tribute to the Queen in the form of a diamond-and-pearl leaf brooch, most famously worn by the Queen over a yellow polka-dot dress in Seoul on April 21, 1999. The rarely seen accessory was a meaningful choice for Middleton, who was spotted wearing the jewels at the Passchendaele memorial in Belgium on July 31, 2017. At both events, Middleton wore a pair of pearl drop earrings previously owned by Princess Diana, giving her outfit a notable nod. to both royal families.
