Kate Middleton's green dress caught a lot of attention as the Duchess of Cambridge stunned in an Emerald Jenny Packham off-the-shoulder gown in Jamaica.


While a guest at the Governor-General's Dinner in Jamaica, the future Queen, the Duchess of Cambridge looked gorgeous as she wore a ruffle off-shoulder gown by Jenny Packham.

Jenny Packham is one of the Duchess's favorite designers and has been the mastermind behind many of Kate Middleton's dresses, including Kate's iconic Bond dress she wore to the 007 premiere which sparked Princess Diana déjà vu for royal fans.

This look also had a special meaning for the Duchess as she paid tribute to her grandmother-in-law, the Queen. The diamond-encrusted, emerald and gold dangling earrings worn by the Duchess are part of the Queen's Emerald Tassel Parure and have been seen on Her Majesty on various occasions.

These earrings are part of a matching set and have been paired by the Queen with a matching bracelet and necklace. The full set was pictured on Her Majesty in 2011 when she met with Barack and Michelle Obama at Winfield House.

The Duchess of Cambridge paid tribute to the Queen on a second occasion with this look as she wore a large yellow ribbon with a small brooch featuring a portrait of Her Majesty, the Queen. 

This brooch is reportedly an honorary symbol of Catherine's service to the Royal Family and was given to Kate by the Queen. These ribbons are called 'Family Orders' and other members of the royal family, including Princess Diana, have been given them by the Queen before.

The ribbons are only typically worn by the women in the Royal Family, and only for very special occasions, so it is a rare sight to see Kate wear such an item to a royal engagement.

While at this Governor-General's Dinner in Jamaica, Prince William addressed 'abhorrent' slavery during a speech and expressed his sorrow as he discussed the 'stain' that this horrific event left on human history. 

The royal couple's Caribbean tour in celebration of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee is not over just yet. Prince William and Kate will soon be heading for the Bahamas where they will conclude their trip and are scheduled to depart on Saturday 26, March.
