It’s good to be a royal—for many many reasons, including the pretty diamonds you get.
Today, Kate Middleton and Prince William were in New Delhi today as a part of their royal tour of India. And they had lunch with the Prime Minister, where Kate showed off an impressive pair of Kiki McDonough earrings.
Rebecca English from the Daily Mail talked to the designer and discovered the earrings were a gift to celebrate Princess Charlotte‘s birth. In royal speak, that means they were a push present.
The earrings feature Green Tourmaline, Green Amethyst and Diamonds and were specially made for Kate. But you can buy a similar pair for about $4000. Oh the royal life!
Now obviously the royal family is never going to confirm who bought the earrings. But it seems likely they were a gift from William. For Kate and William’s first Christmas together as a married couple, he’s rumoured to have given his wife a pair of diamond drop earrings from Kiki McDonough. And her push present after Prince George’s birth appears to be an eternity band that Kate wears on her ring finger alongside her famous engagement ring. This royalty gig sure does come with a lot of diamonds!
Kate wore her gorgeous new earrings with a beautiful dress from Alice Temperley.
Her nude heels and clutch were both from L.K. Bennett.
This is the third day of the couple’s royal tour of India and there have been a few tidbits about Charlotte and George. Yesterday at a birthday party for the Queen, a guest asked Kate how she lost her baby weight. Kate, ever-so-gracious, replied “I am running after my kids.” I personally hate questions about how you lost the baby weight, but for those interested, there’s your answer.
Kate also revealed that she’s worried she will miss her kiddos during her week away.
There are still four more days to go of the royal tour so hopefully we get lots more stories about George and Charlotte.
What do you think about push presents? A nice gesture or unnecessary?
