The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge concluded their special royal train tour on Tuesday evening by joining the Queen and other members of the royal family at Windsor Castle – and what a memorable moment it was!
And thoughtful Kate made sure she paid tribute to Her Majesty with her outfit, too, by wearing a pair of beautiful diamond earrings from the monarch’s own collection.

Known as the ‘Diamond Frame Earrings’, the Queen is thought to have loaned them to her granddaughter-in-law on a long-term basis – and Kate has worn them for a number of important occasions in the past.
