Kate is a loyal fan of the brand and has been spotted at various royal outings wearing the bold designs by the Chelsea-based designer.

Speaking about Kate, Kiki, who’s been designing pieces of jewellery for around for 25 years, previously told Femail: ‘She wears my pieces as they should be worn. She obviously enjoys wearing colour on her ears as opposed to pearls and diamonds all the time.’ 

‘My jewellery is very wearable so it is easy for her to put it with jeans, skirts and dresses – so it is suitable for every occasion,’ added Kiki. 

The mother-of-three also wore the earrings while attending the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow in 2014


Meanwhile more recently she wore the set for St Patrick’s Day in 2015 (left) and during a visit to Wales in 2019 (right) 

Intriguingly, Kiki’s designs were once worn by William’s mother, the late Diana, Princess of Wales, as well as the likes of actresses Rosamund Pike and Emilia Fox. 

Kiki’s collection aims to showcase her love of vibrant colour and wearable designs and she always uses the most vibrant semi precious stones in daring colour combinations, which Kate clearly loves. 

 Yesterday, the Duchess paired the stunning jewels with a buttoned wool and cashmere coat, teaming it with a matching tan poloneck jumper and accessories to match.

It is not the first time that she has donned the £349 jacket, having previously worn the piece when she visited Cardiff to launch her Early Years survey in January 2020.

She opted to wear a pretty yellow and tan mask for the occasion, and completed her look with matching tan accessories. 

During the visit, William and Kate spoke to crews at the ambulance station to hear how they coped mentally during the pandemic.

They went on to meet with paramedic Jahrin Khan, who asked the couple if it was okay to Facetime her father Abu, in Bangladesh.
