Kate shines in emerald and diamond earrings and bracelet borrowed from the Queen

The Duchess of Cambridge finished her green dress with matching emerald and diamond earrings and a bracelet borrowed from the Queen for a glittering state dinner on Wednesday night.

Kate, 40, associated the diamonds with the Royal Family Order – a decoration awarded by the Queen to those close to her – and the GCVO star, which the monarch gave her in April 2019 for her eighth wedding anniversary .

The priceless jewelry is believed to be from the Emerald Tassel Parure Collection – a matching set of earrings, a necklace, a bracelet and a ring given to the Queen by a wealthy foreign monarch.

The donor is believed to be Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan of the United Arab Emirates, as pieces from the set were worn at a dinner he attended at Claridge’s Hotel in 1989.

The Duchess donned an emerald dress believed to be a bespoke version of British fashion designer Jenny Packham’s £3,791 ‘Wonder Glitter Tulle Gown’ for the special occasion.
