Kate Middleton paid tribute to Princess Diana as she turned out to celebrate the first day of the Queen’s Jubilee celebrations – which ended last night when the monarch lit one of more than 3,000 beacons to represent her 70 years on the throne.

Royal fans spotted the royal mum-of-three, who sat alongside Camilla the Duchess of Cornwall in the carriage procession on the first of the official events to mark the Jubilee, was wearing a pair of earrings that once belonged to the late Princess of Wales.

The earrings were given to Kate by husband Prince William, 39, along with his mother’s dazzling sapphire engagement ring.

They came as a gift after William’s proposal to Kate in 2010.

The jewels were originally given to Diana, killed in a Paris car smash aged 36 on August 31, 1997, as a wedding gift to mark her marriage to Prince Charles, 73, and the gift was part of a suite of jewels from Crown Prince Fahd of Saudi Arabia.

Diana said in a letter of wishes that came with her will “I would like to allocate all my jewellery to the share to be held by my sons, so that their wives may, in due course, have it or use it."

I leave the exact division of the jewellery to your discretion.

Royal fans also noticed that Kate gave tribute to Princess Di's fashion style.
