However, the tribute to the queen didn’t stop at the dress. A set of diamond and pearl earrings was also worn by Markle, which many people recognize. The gift was from the queen and was presented to Markle just before their solo 2018 outing.

A Family Affair

Middleton wore a Japanese pearl choker necklace, which was believed to have been treasured by the monarch. According to some, fashion is a family tradition.
