This weekend, the Duchess of Cambridge got to spend time with Queen Elizabeth and a slew of world leaders. On Friday, Kate attended a cocktail reception for the G7 Summit, a gathering of officials from seven of the world's largest economies. The Duchess chose a meaningful piece of jewelry for the occasion.
For the party, Kate sported a three-strand, pearl and diamond bracelet that once belonged to her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana. According to People, Diana wore the piece, crafted by by designer Nigel Milne, on several occasions, including with her pearl-embroidered dress that she wore during a 1989 visit to Hong Kong. There, she paired the bracelet with the Cambridge Lover's Knot Tiara, which Kate has also worn multiple times. Per People, this is not the first time Kate has sported the bracelet—she previously wore it during a 2017 reception in Berlin and again during her 2018 royal tour of Sweden.
The heirloom bracelet complemented the Duchess's tailored white blazer dress, which she paired with Aquazzura pumps. The event was hosted by the Queen and took place at the Eden Project, an educational charity and eco-tourism site in Cornwall. President Joe Biden and First Lady Dr. Jill Biden were in attendance, along with UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, and the other G7 leaders and their spouses.
The Eden Project reception was the second time the Duchess saw Dr. Biden that day, as the pair participated in a joint outing earlier on Friday. The Duchess and the First Lady visited the primary school Connor Downs Academy in Hayle, West Cornwall, where they participated in an expert-led roundtable discussion about early childhood learning, visited some of the school's classes, and participated in a few activities with the students. For the function, Kate and Dr. Biden chose to wear shades of pink, sporting more playful looks than the more subdued colors both women chose for the evening events.
