Princess of Wales wears Bahraini pearl earrings over Remembrance Day weekend


DUBAI: The UK’s Princess of Wales Kate Middleton wore the same Bahraini pearl earrings she chose for Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral to mark Remembrance Day — a memorial day observed in Commonwealth member states since the end of the First World War to honor armed forces members.

The princess opted to wear the late monarch’s pearls along with a Japanese four-strand choker at the annual Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall in London on Nov. 12.

She chose the same set at the queen’s funeral in September.

The earrings feature round diamond studs, with baguette-cut diamonds in an arrangement typical of the late 1940s, as well as pearls as the drop.

The earrings were crafted using two of the seven pearls the Queen received as a wedding gift from Sheikh Salman bin Hamad Al-Khalifa of Bahrain in 1947.
