Queen Letizia of Spain and the Duchess of Cambridge are often compared when it comes to their sense of style. Not only do they look highly similar with their chestnut brown hair and pretty features, but they both love classically cut clothes in bold colours and never fail to look expertly polished at all times. It also appears they mirror each other when it comes to jewellery too! We have noticed that both royals have a pair of drop earrings from British jewellers Links of London. The Hope Egg earrings are designed in a delicate drop shape and are decorated with white topaz detail. They are priced at £325, which admittedly, isn't cheap – but they could be deemed as a great birthday present idea if you were looking for something extra-special or wanted an excuse to save up for a treat! Letizia has worn the gems on countless occasions, and we remember when Kate wore the jewels on a trip to Fortnum & Mason in 2012. The timeless pair are still available online and are a great seller for the brand.
