Queen Elizabeth II may be 91 years old, but that hasn’t stopped some of the younger members of the Royal Family coming to her for fashion inspiration.

The Duchess of Cambridge was spotted arriving at Windsor Castle overnight wearing a particular accessory that has been passed down through the royal family for generations.

Catherine was wearing a stunning four-strand pear necklace that has been worn by some of the palace’s most recognisable women over the years.

The Queen has worn the choker on a number of important occasions throughout her reign, including a tour of Bangladesh in 1983.

A year earlier, Catherine’s mother-in-law Princess Diana was spotted wearing the iconic accessory at a lavish banquet at Hampton Court Palace in 1982.

While it has rarely been seen by the public in recent years, Catherine proudly wore the vintage design as she headed into Windsor Castle to attend celebrations for the Queen and Prince Philip’s 70th wedding anniversary.
