The style and splendor of British royal jewels are well known around the world. Queen Elizabeth II has displayed a lot of it on numerous occasions. Furthermore, the Queen has been more than generous in lending the jewelry to her granddaughter-in-law, Kate Middleton.

Relationship between Kate and the Queen

Even though William and Kate have been dating since 2001, it wasn't until 2008 that Kate actually met the Queen. The two have hit it off right from the start, and the monarch has since shown friendship and appreciation for the young Duchess of Cambridge.

On a trip to Leicester during the filming of the Our Queen At Ninety documentary, Kate was basically alone with her mother-in-law. As Duchess recalls, it was then that she was profoundly touched by how caring the Queen is towards her.

The fact she took the time to make sure that I was happy and looked after for that particular occasion, which probably in everything that she's doing is a very small element, it shows just how caring she is really.
