AS we’re sure Kate Middleton would agree, one of the perks of being a member of the Royal Family is being allowed to wear some of the Queen’s jewellery on special occasions.
Last night, the Duchess of Cambridge dazzled in a pair diamond chandelier earrings from Her Majesty’s collection as she enjoyed a date night with Prince William at the Noel Coward Theatre in London.

Paying sweet tribute to The Queen, the Duchess offset diamond-studded earrings with her custom-made sparkly Jimmy Choo heels and a black Eponine tweed dress.
The intricate design has three strands of smaller jewels dangling from a statement diamond arc.
The Queen’s chandelier earrings are one of Kate’s favourites pieces of jewellery and she has worn them for a number of high profile events in the last nine years.
In July 2011, Kate chose the show-stopping earrings when she walked the red carpet in Los Angeles for a BAFTA event which Prince William is patron of.
