Kate Middleton wears pearl necklace worn by Diana at Queens funeral

Kate Middleton has been spotted wearing the Queen's Four Row Japanese Pearl Choker in a touching tribute to Her Majesty during the Queen's funeral service today (Monday, September 19).

TV cameras picked up the jewellery on the Princess of Wales as she entered Westminster Abbey for the ceremony.

The necklace, which has also been worn by Princess Diana, has been on a long-term loan to the Princess for some time.

Kate teamed the necklace with a pair of Bahrain Pearl earrings.

Pearls are a symbol of mourning for the Royal Family and were also a personal favourite of the Queen, and the women of the Firm have been seen sporting them throughout the mourning period following Her Majesty's death on September 8.

At the service for the Queen at Westminster Hall last Wednesday (September 14), Kate used her jewellery to give a nod to both the Queen and Princess Diana.

Kate wore a pair of diamond and pearl drop earrings from her late mother-in-law's private collection.

She paired the earrings with a brooch that had once been worn by the Queen.

Kate first donned the brooch during a trip to Ypres, Belgium on a visit with William in 2017 – almost two decades after the Queen wore it on a visit to Seoul, South Korea in 1999.

According to The Court Jeweller it “features a trio of pearls placed in the centre of a pave-set leaf”.

Kate also wore the brooch in 2018 during the Festival of Remembrance, although on that occasion it was difficult to see as it was surrounded by poppies.

Kate has joined members of the Royal Family for the state funeral service in Westminster Abbey, commemorating the UK's longest-reigning monarch.

Earlier today the Queen's coffin was moved from Westminster Hall, where it had been lying-in-state, to the Abbey in a procession led by King Charles.
