Kate Middleton may have the key to a vault of diamonds—but when it comes to sports events, she'd rather keep her jewelry a bit more playful.
- Kate Middleton's red earrings at Wembley have royal fans desperate to know how to to get their hands on the dramatic pieces—and we have the answer.
- The Duchess of Cambridge stepped out last night in a pair of gorgeous statement red earrings to watch the England vs Italy match at Euro 2020, much to the envy of her eagle eyed followers.
- In other royal news, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are named as environmental role models—for only having two children.
If Kate Middleton's red earrings are making you green with envy, don't worry—we just might have the tonic for you.
The Duchess of Cambridge had a busy weekend, dashing from Wimbledon to Wembley Stadium yesterday afternoon to watch the England vs Italy match at Euro 2020. Joined by Prince William and their eldest son Prince George, the patriotic mother-of-three cheered on the Three Lions from a VIP box during the historic game between the rival nations on Sunday evening.
And while she's never been one to don a football jersey, Kate didn't disappoint when it came to her sporty attire. The royal fashionista expressed her national pride in a St. George's flag-inspired outfit, complete with a white blazer, black trousers, and some blindingly bright red jewelry. The scarlet teardrop earrings (fittingly suited for the match's emotional result) were the perfect way to jazz up the monochromatic ensemble, sending a statement of solidarity with every tilt of her signature chestnut tresses.
Unfortunately, the Duchess's mascot colors didn't succeed in helping the nation win the 61-year-old football tournament.
The evening ended in despair for England, with Italy winning the coveted title on penalties after a nail-bitingly close match. Prince William joined devastated royal fans in sharing 'heartbreak' over the defeat, before encouraging the Three Lions to "hold your heads high and be so proud of yourselves." His disappointment was shared by seven-year-old Prince George, whose reaction to England losing was enough to make even the hardest of hearts melt.
Kate's red earrings might not have been the lucky charm Britain needed, but that doesn't make them any less spectacular. The gorgeous pieces hail from BLAIZ, a London brand that celebrates the "daring and spirited" nature of Latin American women. Handmade by stitching red resin beads together into a teardrop shape, the luxurious earrings are available to buy online for $93 (£65) or through fortnightly interest-free payments.
It looks like the Duchess didn't have to search too far to find the show stopping accessories. The South American-inspired brand is based in the affluent borough of Chelsea, just a 10 minute car drive from Kate's home at Kensington Palace.
This is far from the first time the style icon has shopped locally to curate her enviable wardrobe. Kate Middleton stunned in a vibrant Emilia Wickstead dress at the Wimbledon women's final at the weekend, pairing the green pleated garment with white heels and a delicate silver bracelet. The New-Zealander designer owns an upscale store in Belgravia, less than 20 minutes from the the royal's plush residence.
Kate has earned a reputation for supporting local clothing businesses, especially those with a powerful mission, ever since joining the Royal Family in 2011. And with so much international fashion on her doorstep, we can't say we blame her.
