By Aarti Rawat
Kate Middleton is a stylish Princess of Wales. The 40-year-old joined Prince William in welcoming South Africa's president for King Charles III's first State Visit as monarch.
For the ceremony on Nov. 22, Kate wore a plum-colored Emilia Wickstead coat dress with a matching hat, suede heels, and special jewelry.
The monarch wore Princess Diana's diamond and pearl drop earrings and Queen Alexandra's Three Feathers Brooch, which bears the Prince of Wales feathers symbol.
The diamond, ruby, and emerald brooch were given to Queen Alexandra upon her marriage to Prince of Wales King Edward VII in 1863.
Diana wore the sparkler till her 1997 death, and Camilla in the 2000s. Kate dressed into a Jenny Packham caped gown for the State supper at Buckingham Palace.
She completed her fantasy outfit with the Lover's Knot tiara, another favorite of Diana's.
