The Duchess of Cambridge often sparks a fashion frenzy. Reiss and LK Bennett sales increase substantially when she is photographed in one of their items. However, with the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee quickly approaching, Kate is moving out of the way to make way for her grandmother-in-law.
Topshop, H&M and Vivienne Westwood, to name just a few, have all incorporated a royal theme into their latest designs. Even Marks and Spencer has joined the craze and has created a costume-jewellery replica of the imperial state crown, which will be auctioned for charity. The real crown contains Cullinan II, which is the second largest cut diamond in the world. It’s 317.4 carats!
The personal jewels of the royal family are usually not on display. However, this summer, the centrepiece of the displays at Buckingham Palace will be a collection of the royal family’s personal jewellery. We are sure the industry leaders from the fashion world will be there to incorporate ideas inspired from the collection into their designs.
