The Duchess of Cambridge made a surprise virtual appearance on Monday, appearing in a new video at the Natural History Museum to reveal that she will be announcing the Wildlife Photographer of the Year prize on Tuesday night.

Looking beautiful in a sharp power suit, it was certainly a gorgeous look from Kate, who finished her outfit with her usual glossy blow-dry and flawless makeup - but did you notice her pretty pearl earrings?

WATCH: Kate's announcement with the Natural History Museum

Kate has sported a number of styles from Accessorize in the past, so we wouldn't be surprised if she had snapped up these elegant studs - which most likely came with a bargain price tag.

The Duchess also loves her pearl drop earrings from Annoushka, which she has worn on a number of special occasions over the years - though from the clip, it appears that her latest earrings are circle studs, rather than hoops.

Royal fashion blogger UFO No More wrote on Twitter: "It looks to me that Kate is wearing @Accessorize Pearl Rope Earrings," with a follower replying: "It looks like them! As the hoop does not go around her earlobe but it stays in the front like a stud."

We reckon Kate's Annoushka earrings are a little smaller than her latest jewels, and the round pearl design certainly matches the Accessorize pair. In fact, we wouldn't be surprised if the Duchess has a large collection of affordable pieces we haven't seen her wear yet!

Memorably, the royal has worn her 'Twisted Circle Drop Earrings' from Accessorize on a number of occasions, as well as her pink 'Polly Petal' numbers, £8, which sparked a mass sell-out - but luckily, they've been restocked due to their huge popularity.
