Kate Middleton recently chose to accessorize her ensemble with the Princess of Wales Feather Brooch. This seemingly reportedly reflected the royal’s new rank in the monarchy as the Princess of Wales.

People reported that the senior royal donned the piece when she joined Prince William in welcoming the President of South Africa, Cyril Ramaphosa, in the first meeting of his state visit to the United Kingdom on Tuesday.

Kate Middleton is said to have never worn the Feather Brooch in the past, making it her first time to do so during the recent engagement.

The magazine recalled in the same report published Tuesday that the royal brooch has a rich history dating back to the 19th century. It stated that the piece was made as a gift for Princess Alexandra of Denmark for her 1863 wedding to the then-Prince of Wales, Edward, who later became King Edward VII.

The outlet also reported that the design of the Feather Brooch took inspiration from the Prince of Wales’ badge, which features three feathers blooming out of a crown.

As the Princess of Wales, the late Princess Diana is said to have received the brooch from the Queen Mother. Citing a report from The SunPeople stated that Queen Elizabeth II’s mother gave it to her as a wedding present when she married then-Prince Charles in 1981.

But, a recent report from Harper’s Bazaar said that Princess Diana received it from the Queen Mother upon her engagement to the then-Prince of Wales.

Whatever the case, though, the former Princess of Wales reportedly wore the Feather Brooch on a few royal engagements and appearances in the ‘80s.

Harper’s Bazaar noted elsewhere in its report published Tuesday that the Princess of Wales Feather Brooch has 18 round-cut diamonds. It also added that the piece features small emeralds, as well, surrounding the Prince of Wales feathers symbol.

The publication subsequently shared that, aside from the royal brooch, Kate Middleton also donned another accessory that honors the late Princess Diana. As stated, she wore the diamond-and-pearl drop earrings that once belonged to Prince William’s mother.

Last week, Kate Middleton made headlines, as well, because of her choice of accessories.

At the time, Entertainment Tonight said that the Princess of Wales made notable accessory choices, a move that appeared to be a tribute to the late Queen Elizabeth II. It explained that she wore a pair of pearl drop earrings and a four-strand pearl choker necklace at the Festival of Remembrance in London.

The publication noted in its report that the stunning pieces belonged to the late British Monarch, recalling that the Queen wore the choker for a state dinner in Bangladesh in 1983, while she received the earrings as a wedding gift when she tied the knot with Prince Philip in 1947.
