Kate Middleton has easily become one of our biggest style icons.

The Duchess of Cambridge joined the rest of the royal family at the G7 Leaders’ reception at the Eden Project in Cornwall, and in typical fashion, her outfit stole the show.

The duchess looked radiant in an all-white coat dress courtesy of Alexander McQueen, which she paired with rose gold aspen earrings from Robinson Pelham and blush suede pumps from Aquazzura. She also carried her vintage Josef micro-beaded clutch.

But the best part of the ensemble was Middleton's nod to her late mother-in-law. The Duchess of Cambridge wore a three-strand pearl bracelet that once belonged to the Princess of Wales. People noted that “Diana wore the piece on several occasions, including her pearl-embroidered "Elvis" dress that she sported during a 1989 visit to Hong Kong.” The sentimental jewelry can be seen on Middleton's left wrist in the second image of the slideshow.

The look was displayed on Kate Middleton and Prince William's joint Instagram account, where they posted the series of photos with a caption that read: “The Duke and Duchess joined The Queen, The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall for the #G7 Leaders’ reception at the Eden Project in Cornwall. Following the Leaders’ reception The Queen, The Duchess of Cornwall and The Duchess of Cambridge attended a reception marking the Big Lunch, which will form part of The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations in 2022. The Duke and G7 leaders joined The Prince of Wales for a reception on his Sustainable Markets Initiative, and discussed its work to ensure business works for the environment, not against it.”

We love seeing Princess Diana's amazing taste live on with her fashionable daughter-in-law.
