Many fans got a chance to enjoy something that differentiates the royal ladies from any other aristocrats – their dazzling jewelry. Breathtaking earrings, mind-blowing tiaras – we’ve all dreamt about putting them on at least once.
Our personal favorite is the stunning Cambridge Lover's Knot Tiara, which is believed to be Princess Diana’s favorite. Kate Middleton recently donned this beauty at the state banquet. However, Kate’s sister-in-law, Meghan Markle, hasn’t seen wearing tiaras, or any other jewels that belong to the Queen, since her wedding. And, according to an expert, there is a reason behind it.
Why doesn’t Meghan wear the Queen’s jewelry?
Since marrying the British Prince, Meghan Markle has upped her jewelry game in a serious way. The Duchess has been sporting incredibly expensive gems that are hard not to notice. She is a big fan of simple and clean jewelry from famous brands, like Birks.
Kate Middleton, in comparison, prefers heirloom pieces and classic brands, like Cartier. She is often seen borrowing the stunning jewels from the Queen’s personal collection for the official events. Meghan, on the other hand, seems to prefer her own jewelry for formal royal occasions.
A London-based stylist, Lauren Teff, explains why she chooses to go on a different route from Kate. Talking to Express.co.uk, she said:
I would say Meghan keeps her jewelry quite simple but stylish and contemporary with a classic twist.
Her choice might be influenced by her desire to support new brands rather than borrowing old jewelry.
She always supports smaller designers that make an ethical impact.
Kate is the definition of class, which might be the reason why she likes to wear the gems from the royal collection.
The royal wives’ personal style reflects in everything they wear, including how they choose to accessorize their looks. So it’s not surprising that Meghan sticks to simple and minimalistic jewelry, while Kate prefers timeless and classic pieces.
