On Saturday afternoon, Kate Middleton honored the late Queen Elizabeth by wearing one of her favorite pieces of jewelry at a luncheon reception at Buckingham Palace. The newly appointed Princess of Wales was photographed wearing the Queen’s famous three-strand pearl necklace. The piece was one of her favorites and she wore it almost daily.

A royal source confirmed with entertainment tonight that it was indeed the same necklace and that Kate was wearing it with a pair of pearl and diamond earrings and a pearl bracelet that also belonged to Elizabeth.

The luncheon was attended by King Charles III, Camilla, the Queen Consort and Prince William, and was held to welcome the Governors General of the Commonwealth nations. They arrived ahead of the queen’s state funeral on Monday 19 September. Other heads of state from around the world are expected to attend, including Emmanuel Macron, Justin Trudeau and Joe Biden.

The queen had an extensive jewelery collection at the time of her death, although the crown jewels technically belong to the estate. Her private collection will likely be divided among her family, though royal expert Katie Nicholl said Eastern Time that first choice would traditionally go to the queen consort, Camilla. But it seems Camilla passed on the pearls or they were meant for Kate all along.

“There is a hierarchy to all of this,” Nicholl said. “The queen consort actually has the first choice of the queen’s jewels. And after that there is the Princess of Wales, of course, Kate. [Middleton]. The Duchess of Sussex, I’m sure, she’ll come for some jewelery at some point, but she’s much further down the pecking order.”

It is unknown how much the Queen’s private collection is worth, as those pieces have not been publicly accounted for or appraised. Queen Elizabeth also received many of her jewels as gifts from her throughout her life, attributing both historical and sentimental value to them. Nicholl says that essentially makes the collection “invaluable.”

Before her mother-in-law’s death, Kate had been seen wearing her jewelry, including a pair of diamond and sapphire earrings, at a gala dinner at London’s Victoria and Albert Museum in 2015. Elizabeth clearly liked to see Kate with her jewels.
