The royal family came together to celebrate baby Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor’s Christening over the weekend, and while the day was all about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s little one, we couldn’t help but notice Kate Middleton’s sweet fashion tribute to Princess Diana.
The Duchess of Cambridge attended her nephew’s Christening on Saturday wearing a special pair of earrings that had sentimental value.
As reported by Hello!, Kate’s The Collingwood Pearl Earrings earrings belonged to the late Princess Diana, her husband Prince William and his brother Prince Harry’s mother. So we can see why she chose to wear them to mark the occasion.
And not only that, the touching nod to Diana was extra special as it turns out Kate’s earrings were the exact same pair worn by the Princess when Archie’s father, Harry was baptised.
Of course, this isn’t the first time Kate has made a sentimental gesture. In fact, she’s pretty known for doing so regularly – particularly when it comes to moments with her. Last month, she gifted Prince William with a sweet homemade scrapbook of photos and pictures drawn by their three children for his birthday. So it’s no surprise to see her adding a sentimental touch to her outfit for baby Archie’s Christening.
The private ceremony took place in Windsor Castle’s chapel and saw Meghan’s mother Doria Ragland attend alongside the rest of the royal family, including Princess Diana’s two sisters Lady Jane Fellowes and Lady Sarah McCorquodale who attended on their late sister’s behalf. They were also included in the official family portrait which features baby Archie, his parents, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Charles, the Duchess of Cornwall and Meghan’s mother.
The Christening marks the third time the public have been given a look at baby Archie. Before then, we had only received two tiny glimpses him – the first time being when Meghan and Prince Harry showed him off days after he was born and the second via an adorable picture with his dad shared on the @sussexroyal Instagram account on Father’s Day.
