The royal couple represented the British royal family at the wedding of Crown Prince Hussein of Jordan and Rajwa al-Saif in Al Husseiniya Palace in Amman, Jordan.
Looking gorgeous in a gold, shimmering, long-sleeved gown from Jenny Packham, it was the Princess of Wales’ accessories that caught our eye – the lover’s knot tiara and a pair of diamond chandelier earrings, which were a favourite of the late Queen Elizabeth II.
Leading diamond experts at UK retailer Steven Stone have revealed everything you need to know about the two pieces, including how much they’re likely to be worth…
Lover’s Knot Tiara
Value: £1 million ($1.2 million)
Kate’s tiara choice paid tribute to both Queen Elizabeth II and her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana.
Originally designed for Queen Mary in 1913, the Lover’s Knot tiara was passed on to Queen Elizabeth II who presented it to Princess Diana for her royal wedding in 1981 – despite respectfully declining in favour of her father’s Spencer Family tiara, the tiara became one of her favourite pieces, although it’s claimed to have been so heavy that it hurt her head.
Kate has worn the tiara on many occasions, including in October 2018 when Queen Elizabeth loaned Kate the tiara to wear to a state dinner at Buckingham Palace. The royal most recently wore it to King Charles III’s first state banquet in November 2022, making it the first tiara that she wore as the Princess of Wales.
Packed with the finest quality diamonds and pearls, our experts estimate the Queen Mary’s Lover’s Knot tiara to be worth £1 million.
Greville Chandelier Earrings
Value: £1.6 million ($2 million)
Kate opted for a stunning pair of diamond chandelier earrings, which she hasn’t worn before.
Reportedly made in 1929, they were gifted to Queen Elizabeth II by her parents on her wedding day in November 1947.
The late monarch regularly wore the jewels throughout her life – most recently during a visit to Toronto in July 2010 – so it’s touching that Kate has brought them back into the spotlight.
Our experts estimate the sparkling earrings to be worth £1.6 million.
