Kate Middleton Paid Tribute to Queen Elizabeth and Princess Diana With Her Coronation Jewelry

Kate Middleton—that is, the Princess of Wales—has arrived at Westminster Abbey ahead of the coronation of King Charles III and Queen Camilla, a hugely historic event. So it’s no wonder the royal chose to touchingly honor both the late Queen Elizabeth II and Princess Diana with her choice of jewelry.

To pay tribute to the two royal women who came before her, the Princess of Wales wore the late Queen’s George VI Festoon necklace, three tiers of stunning diamonds that was originally created in 1950 as a gift from King George VI to his daughter, then Princess Elizabeth before being crowned Queen Elizabeth II in 1953.
