She did not miss the special headdress, a simple but stylish pillbox hat decorated with a bow, all in the same tone as the dress. However, it was the jewelry that attracted the most attention in Middleton’s look.

For the first time, Kate Middleton has worn the Princess of Wales brooch on the lapel of her dress, a diamond piece with an emerald teardrop that belonged to Queen Alexandra and that Diana of Wales wore in 1982 during an event that took place at the Royal Opera House.
