For this important royal engagement, Kate turned to one of her go-to designers, Emilia Wickstead.
She wore the brand’s purple wool crepe Hadley suit, which we’ve seen her in before. Kate paired the fitted blazer and flared pants.
She accessorized with black suede Gianvito Rossi heels and a black Aspinal of London crocodile-effect bag.
As for jewelry, Kate wore a special pair of earrings that belonged to Princess Diana.
The sapphire and diamond earrings were originally a wedding gift from Crown Prince Fahd of Saudi Arabia to Diana.
Kate pulled these sentimental earrings from the royal jewelry box earlier this year for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations.
Each earring contains a large oval sapphire surrounded by diamonds set in white gold.
