We don't know about you; but we're still reeling over the Duchess of Cambridge's stunning gold and white Alexander McQueen dress she sported at the 2020 BAFTAs. The wife of Prince William stole the show - her frock was the talk of the night - and it's easy to see why. It featured delicate beading and the white shade looked wonderful against her skin tone. But did you have a chance to check out her jewellery? The 38-year-old wore a beautiful necklace and drop earrings by Van Cleef & Arpels - the Alhambra clover. This design is so similar to a set the Duchess of Cornwall has - particularly the earrings. Perhaps Kate was inspired by her fellow royal?

Mother-of-three Kate and Camilla have a lovely relationship and Kate even has a lovely gold charm bracelet given to her by Prince Charle's wife.

The gold bracelet was gifted to Kate as a wedding gift in 2011 and features a disc engraved with both of their monograms – on one side, a 'C' for Catherine and a coronet, and on the other, a 'C' for Camilla and a crown.

 When Camilla makes a red-carpet appearance, she has often worn the diamond serpent necklace, which features two small rubies for eyes. The choker is also thought to have been a gift from Charles, and Camilla was first spotted wearing it in 2001.
