Kate was spotted in a long-sleeved black dress with a veiled fascinator and a four-row pearl choker jewellery that featured a diamond clasp. The reports also mentioned that Kate’s matching pearl dropped earrings also belong to the Queen. She previously wore the same piece of jewellery during celebrations of the Queen's 70th wedding anniversary to Prince Philip.

The same necklace was worn by Princess Diana for a state banquet in the Netherlands in 1982. The choice veiled fascinator was also symbolic as it was reminiscent of the late Princess of Wales' iconic headpiece she chose for Grace Kelly's funeral.
