On May 7, Prince William and Kate Middleton stunned the crowd of well-wishers who had gathered along the Long Walk outside Windsor Castle in preparation for the Coronation Concert that would take place later that evening.
The Princess of Wales wore a blue Reiss jacket over a white t-shirt and black pants the day after attending the coronation ceremony of King Charles III, wearing traditional dress robes and an ornate floral crown. She wore these garments one day after attending the ceremony in traditional attire. She accented the understated summer outfit with a pair of her favorite pearl drop earrings and her engagement ring, a sapphire and diamond band similar to Princess Diana’s one.
“It was a lovely family atmosphere,” one source said of the Big Lunch event, as reported by People. “Right from the beginning, William and Kate had a calm demeanor. They were posting for selfies and engaging in conversation with children who were wearing crowns. In addition, the source mentioned that “as soon as word went around that they were there, people descended onto the area around the Long Walk.”
The future king and queen of the United Kingdom visited Wales in the days leading up to their coronation on May 6. During their time there, they maintained a low-key demeanor when interacting with the locals. While stopping to pick up some pizza for the Central Beacons Mountain Rescue Team on April 27, the couple shocked fans by having a brief conversation while they were there. The princess took the time to interact with people, even discussing Princess Diana’s 12-carat engagement ring with a resident. She was attired for the rain in slim gray jeans, a comfortable green turtleneck sweater, thick hiking boots, and her favorite Barbour x Alexa Chung wax jacket.
According to People, Kate Middleton referred to the item as the “same ring” when asked about it. “And the same—the same size.” “And the same.” She told the supporter that she is “honored” to wear the ring that belonged to her late mother-in-law and that “We miss her every day.”
The Princess of Wales paid a moving tribute to the late royals by donning cherished pieces of jewelry and clothing.
