Kate Middleton was a standout at Queen Elizabeth’s diamond jubilee river pageant on the Thames in London over the weekend outfitted in a scarlet Alexander McQueen dress that she paired with a flamboyant red feathered hat by Sylvia Fletcher. But it was another accessory that stood out on the festive occasion: the duchess’ brooch.
Arriving for the event with her husband of one year, Prince William, 30-year-old Middleton had a pin on the lapel of her dress. Richard Palmer, who is the royal reporter for the UK’s Daily Express, explained the significance of the jewelry via Twitter, writing: “Kate’s wearing a maritime-themed brooch featuring two silver dolphins. It’s a gift from the Royal Navy Submarine Service.”
William, who had on his Royal Air Force uniform for his grandmother’s special day, is the Commodore in Chief of the Royal Navy Submarine Service. Middleton reportedly received the pin as a wedding gift. A year after marrying Prince William, Middleton is starting to take some style risks. Earlier this month while attending an event with William she showed some leg in a white RM by Roland Mouret dress which featured a thigh-high split.
