We could only ever dream of only jewels that cost a small fortune, but for the Princess of Wales, this is a reality. Prince William’s wife wore a pair of extravagant topaz earrings as she attended the Buckingham Palace garden party on Tuesday, and nobody seemed to clock the stunning pieces.

Princess Kate complemented her Elie Saab aesthetic by frosting herself with Kiki MacDonough’s ‘Lola Blue Topaz Hoop Earrings’ worth £3,400. The aqua blue gems added a tinge of cool colour to her lavish lace ensemble, which she previously wore to Ascot back in 2019.

Complete with a bespoke 'Macramé Pussy Bow Blouse, and 'Embroidered Tulle Skirt' from the coveted Lebanese designer's Resort 2019 collection, the royal mother-of-three's silhouette-skimming gown was the perfect choice for a spring day. A Philip Treacy hat was the cherry on top of a divine outfit choice.

Garden parties have been held at Buckingham Palace since the 1860s when Queen Victoria began what was known as “breakfasts”, although they took place in the afternoon.

Prince Edward donned a morning suit with a pink tie, while his wife Sophie, opted for a blue dress by Suzannah London and a Jane Taylor hat that twinned with Kate’s blue attire.

Kensington Palace shared a sweet snap of the pair as they greeted guests and a lot of fans are sharing the same thoughts about their outfits.

The outdoor shindig came just days after the King and Queen celebrated their joint coronation at Westminster Abbey last Saturday. The senior working royals joined the carriage procession as a newly crowned Charles and Camilla travelled back to Buckingham Palace in the Gold State Coach.
