Kate heard about the important work Tommy's are doing

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."

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.
