Kate Middleton’s BAFTAs outfit included a sweet tribute to Diana

With her husband Prince William, the Duchess walked the red carpet, following some of the world's biggest film stars into the Royal Albert Hall ceremony last night. She paired the striking dress with a white clutch, a sparkling diamond bracelet and a pair of her late mother-in-law's pearl and silver earrings.

In Princess Diana's will, Diana's Letter of Wishes stated: "But I would like you to allocate all my jewelry to the share to be held by my sons, so that their wives may, in due course, have it or use it".

Why were Prince William and Kate Middleton at the BAFTAs?

Kate made an angelic appearance wearing a white, one-shoulder McQueen gown and glittery Jimmy Choo heels.

This evening, he will present The Fellowship award to Martin Scorsese's longstanding editor, Thelma Schoonmaker.

"We've never talked about this and I find it very emotional but you were the classiest and coolest honour guards anyone could have".

The Favourite, which looks at Queen Anne's relationship with two cousins, took home seven awards, with lead Olivia Coleman picking up the gong for Best Actress.

She radiated joy and Princess Diana's earrings really did pull the whole outfit together. On October 20th, 2018 she wore one of the Princesses' tiaras, known as the Lover's Knot tiara, to a state dinner at Buckingham palace.

According to reports, Princess Diana's sons inherited her jewelry collection, including the gorgeous sapphire engagement ring that Prince William gave to Middleton when he proposed. But Will and Kate being the polite Brits they are (who have also conveniently not yet factored into The Crown's narrative), welcomed Colman with open arms on the red carpet.

The delicate earrings also come with a removable clasp, which allows for the pearls to be removed. And we can see why-she always looks stunning.
