Kate's Outfit For Philip's Funeral Means More Than You Think

The List

    Kate Middleton is one of 30 guests in attendance at Prince Philip's funeral, and appropriately, she donned an all-black outfit, designed by Roland Mouret, to mourn the royal family patriarch. Upon leaving for St. George's Chapel in Windsor, the Duchess of Cambridge was photographed wearing a black hat - complete with black netting - and face mask as well. Meanwhile, eagle-eyed royal watchers may have noticed Kate is also adorned in some familiar jewelry, which has a deep meaning for the family.
    Indeed, Prince William's wife was seen wearing the Queen's pearl necklace - which is said to be from her personal collection. This is not the first time Kate has worn the elegant piece, having also accessorized with the choker in 2017 at a birthday celebration for Margaret Thatcher, according to the Daily Mail.
    Meanwhile, someone else very special to both Kate and the royal family has also worn the pearl necklace in the past. But just who it is may surprise those who have followed the drama that has plagued the British royals for several decades.
    Princess Diana, who was greatly at odds with the royal family almost from the start by all accounts, also wore Queen Elizabeth's Japanese pearl choker for a banquet in 1982, shortly after she married Prince Charles according to the Daily Mail. Of course, her mother-in-law at the time lent it to her for the occasion.
    Now, Kate wearing the storied pearls is a show of solidarity with Queen Elizabeth, according to Express. The Duchess of Cambridge put her own spin on the look, pairing the meaningful piece with diamond and pearl drop earrings, which according to Hello! are also from the monarch's personal collection.
    Kate's outfit for the funeral ties her to Diana, and to the sovereign, on a solemn day commemorating the life of the longest serving consort in British history, Prince Philip, but it also makes a statement about health and family.
    Watch this video for how Kate's outfit for Philips funeral means more than you think!

      00:10 One of those rare moments that any photographer would be lucky to capture.

      She's Royal ok

    3. Darling Jessie

      The only reason why you people love Kate is because she is Lily White and not Biracial or even worst....Black *clutching pearls*. Kate chased after William for over a decade as he strung her along while having countless affairs! Kate finally snagged him. Good for her. But lets be real on the real reason why you people feel so warm to Kate and not Meghan. When it comes to beauty Meghan is more beautiful not to mention her intelligence and charitable nature that she's had since childhood. Since she wss a a small girl she's trying to make a difference. Kate wants to be Queen and will do anything to be Queen. She's attractive and seems somewhat nice. Although I find both Kate and William to be cold as ice. Perfect for the Monarchy. Meghan is more like Princess Diana. That's probably what he sees in her and that's probably one of the many reasons why he married her. Harry is a strong willed Man. He definitely wears the pants in his household. He made the right choice in Beautiful Meghan and for leaving that cold inbredded family. History will not repeat itself. Very proud of Harry. William and Kate are perfect for their role. Staunch, uptight, pious, cold, unfeeling. Perfect for the Monarchy. I still think the winners in this battle are: Harry and Meghan🏆

    15. Grtfulow Let's Dance

      Why is Kate spending money frivolously on clothes? They should recycle their garments as they do their jewelry.

    16. Madison Garner

      🎶She wore a pearl necklace🎶

      1. oiuet souiu

        There was no need for her jewellary. , plain earrings would have been fine.

    17. Feline Queen

      I wish people really address her appropriately according to what she is. She is not "William's wife", or "Kate"; she is Princess Catherine. Typical American ignorance who chooses to make a video without even bothering to do proper research.

    18. Baby love

      William & Harry both have exceptional taste in women.🤩

    19. eli b

      She absolutely beautiful!

    20. Div A

      O'eah.... The amount that woman spends on her taxpayer paid outfits?! .... It should mean buckets?!! And after she repeats an outfit in, say 5 years, out comes the royal machinery vid to say oooh and aaah !!!


      stupid masks

    22. Epona

      Those don't look like the same necklaces at all. Diana's was three strand, Kate's was four. And the center clasps aren't the same either. But otherwise, yeah. I'm not at all anti-royals. Just anti total non stories.

    23. Melissa

      Kate is really beautiful. Never noticed how striking her eyes are

    24. Pebble

      Damn I kinda don’t care

    25. seiom jvony

      I sense nothing but class. Sad times, nevertheless.

    26. Jon Brown

      Jewelry was totally inappropriate for a funeral.

      1. DrusillaC

        Says who? The Queen wore a pearl necklace and earrings too, so why was it inappropriate for Kate to do likewise? Her necklace and earrings are from the Queen's personal collection and I'm sure HM was pleased to have Kate wear them. Colourless jewellery - pearls and diamonds - are appropriate for funerals and royals often wear both.

    27. pups mom

      She is so beautiful, elegant and poised! She truly belongs in the Royal family! So glad that William made a choice of someone who had the respect and demeanor to be a Royal. Unfortunately, Harry didn't.

    28. Josh Motivation

      Good 👍

    51. Mike Som

      Most beautiful woman in the world...

    52. Allison Moores

      What a lady! Beautiful elegant style iconic. Our future Queen concort.. Harrys wife, stick to cleaning the floors

    53. Lisa Winfield

      Kate looks absolutely horrible. She looks like a preening peacock. She completely upstaged the Queen, the other family members and most importantly Prince Philip. She is completely inappropriately attired. She set about to call attention to herself instead of the occasion. There is nothing refined, classy or regal about that.

      1. Lisa Winfield

        @DrusillaC Such rabid devotion to a woman you know absolutely nothing about...save what you read in the papers. It seems to me a truly confident gentlewoman or gentleman who truly possesses elegance and grace would seek to avoid personal attention at the funeral of anyone much less Prince Philip. Certainly she is physically attractive, perhaps a bit too thin for a proper role model, as are we all in one way or another. It seems so many, Catherine included, have lost sight of what grace and elegance is and have mistaken it for something as meaningless as attention seeking dressing.

      2. DrusillaC

        How can you write such rubbish? Kate is dressed in black and wearing a hat like all the other ladies, she's wearing a necklace from the Queen's own personal collection which means the Queen was happy for her to wear it. She did nothing to upstage the Queen or anyone else, no one ever upstages the Queen and none of her family would ever attempt to do so. It seems to bother you that people admire Kate for her beauty and elegance, for knowing how to dress for the occasion. Of course the photographers always want to photograph her, she's young and beautiful and will someday be queen consort, she doesn't need to do anything to attract attention and never will.

    54. Dal T

      They really did pick the right one with her, classy and highly regal - she'd make an excellent queen in the future.

    55. Tara Kissoon

      Kate is beautiful and classy.

    56. CeeA Charland

      Classy, just classy.

    57. cynthia keller

      Beautiful dignified woman and future Queen Consort! She embraces and shows her allegiance to The Queen and Lady Di.

    58. laskin riubn

      She is truly a royal.

    59. GloriaNZ

      Kate was mentally and emotionally prepared for this royal life.

    60. chiki rok

      Kate is a strong, beautiful, intelligent white lady, love her. X The next beautiful WQueen. X

    61. beverley hotchkiss

      love her and sophie and to think mm is trash. harry fu"!!!! up.

    62. E DC

      One is born a royal. Kate was. Harry, alas, not.

    63. D W

      Very unpleasant reporter-voice

    64. Gina C

      Kate is so natural in her position. She is lovely inside and out. She is a jewel in the family crown. I love Princess Kate.

    65. Penny 2014

      Good grief enough of the “acknowledgment to Diana”. The Queens jewelry is offered to all the women to wear on important occasions. Even Camilla wears the same jewelry. Stop the comparisons of Catherine to Diana. They are two different women with different styles.

    66. Rochelle n/a

      I also think Oprah Winfrey was struggling to care during the interview because she knew Meghan did not need many questions. Oprah is not new at conning her guests to giving out information they never planned on. Meghan Markle made this easy for Oprah because she was so stupidly already digging her own hole.

    67. Rochelle n/a

      She, Kate is a lovely asset to Royal family. Obviously more mature than Meghan. She, Kate was miserable too. Only the strong survive! Kate is more of a women's spokeswoman than Meghan and Meghan knows this.

    68. Regdu Geht

      dressed so neatly. Goes to show she came from a good family background. Our hearts go out to the queen with deepest sympathy here in America.

    69. Kittie Kellie

      Waity knows it’s one down, one more to go. All that tenacity all those years before Willard agreed to propose is close close to paying off. 😂😂😂

    70. JJ M

      I just adore Kate, so classy and dignified at all times. So wonderful to see such amazing comments about the lovely duchess. She is the best decision that William made.

    71. Lauren Lind

      She's not a princess. She wasn't made a princess. She's a duchess.

      1. Lauren Lind

        @DrusillaC thanks for sharing. I didn't know that.

      2. DrusillaC

        She's a duchess but also a princess. If William hadn't been made a duke she'd be known as Princess William, just as Prince Michael's wife is known as Princess Michael. In later years when Charles is king William will most likely be made Prince of Wales and Kate will then become HRH Catherine, Princess of Wales.


      One step closer to u bernina queen u can't wait right .


      Who care about the fucken cloth there wearing a man is dead a queen is sad

    74. Antonia Meli

      She is beautiful.

    75. Joseph Oliver

      Princess Kate is an incredible PLUS to the Royal Family.

    76. klcpca

      Even in mourning, with a mask, she looks lovely....

    77. dutoiu hour

      Beautiful show of respect for Her Magesty Queen Elizabeth. ❤

    78. Alie Morgan

      Kate has stuck it out through thick and thin. Seamlessly. Humility + Grace = Kate My favorite person. Then William finally, Diana. In that order. Most example figures. One of my favorite public world figures.

    79. orchidee4570

      Sie sieht aus wie Vivien Leigh vom Winde verweht..SCARLETT... She looks like Vivien Leigh from Gone with the Wind

    80. Kathie Walli

      Kate is one classy lady

    81. Patrinia Copeland

      Wow. She didn't need to have an expensive new dress for a funeral. That's so disrespectful. The funeral was not about her. She just wanted the spotlight. That is so classless!

    82. Elizabeth Miller

      She is not a Princess

    83. DeeDee Bop

      The Queen in waiting, one day she will make a beautiful queen who has elegance and class and who will support her family to no ends, there are some who could take a leaf out of Kate's book she is a Lady

    84. Kay Gordon

      A birthday celebration for Margaret Thatcher in 2017? Thatcher died in 2013!! Also Kate isn’t a Princess, she’s a duchess. Did anyone fact check this terrible piece of rubbish?

    85. Follow God

      One has class, grace and respect! One is a classless gold digger with no respect for for herself let alone her family and her wife’s country! Wife you ask? Yes indeed, her wife Harry or is it Harry wife,,, hmmm 🤔 yep, it’s Harry wife!

    86. Linda Thomas


    87. Iza GALLAGHER

      It is why Meghan was so upset, she didn't understand why Kate has more rights, the tiara she wanted in her wedding, was a tiara only princess of Wales, or queens can wear. She wanted the tiara princess Diana wore sometimes. Prince Harry tried to intervene, he called the Queen asking her to allow his future wife to wear. The Queen put her foot down, because it was a matter of status quo, It was when Meghan was told one day she would have to bow for Kate, Princess Charlotte, because they are the real royal family. Her background had anything to do is how the aristocratic works. It didn't matter if prince harry and her were the most loved couple in the world. Kate is a future Queen and the mother of the future royals.

    88. Ramona Nivens

      I wonder what color Meghan would have worn...anything but black!

    97. 123Stormtrooper

      She seems so happy.. getting close

    98. Elizabeth Torres

      The Duchess of Cambridge is a Natural Classic beauty. Quite elegant in her feminine ways. I know her Majesty the Queen is proud and quite fond of the Duchess of Cambridge, and of course the rest of the Royal Family members as well. I truly miss seeing The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry enjoying each other's company before Meghan came into the picture. Why doesn't Prince Harry see that Meghan has destroyed his relationship with his Royal Family? How does a man continue to be with a woman who's done nothing but disrespected your Queen, your brother William and Kate, and mistreated the Royal Staff? 🤔 Hmm? Prince Harry is being blackmailed by Meghan. What does Meghan know about Prince Harry that his Majesty the Queen and the rest of the Royals don't know?

    99. Frances Leslie

      so what could she read to make her smile ... She is an amazing wonderful and hands on Mother!!!! she exudes love for her family keep it up Kate, we are all for that family, You have it all. and Will is the fortunate one . so I hope he knows this and is able to keep ..... a amazing . life going on. in other words a family man . and chooses to cherish this.

    100. annag cocl

      Duchess Katherine never puts a foot wrong. She will be a wonderful queen! She is a true "class act"!
