Our coverage of the jewels worn by the Duchess of Cambridge during the royal tour of the Caribbean continues today with more lovely sparkle from Belize.
On Monday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge toured Caracol, a Mayan archaeological site in Belize’s Chiquibul Forest. The ancient site was occupied as early as 1200 BCE. Archaeologists believe that the settlement served as an important political center for the region.
Kate kept her attire and jewelry appropriately casual for the visit, wearing a slender pair of gold hoop earrings, plus her usual rings.
Later, William and Kate headed to the British Army Training Support Unit’s jungle training facility in Chiquibul.
Kate added a lightweight jacket for the jungle visit, but she otherwise wore the same clothes and jewelry. Here’s another good view of the small gold hoops she wore.
In the evening, the Cambridges attended a special reception hosted by the Governor General of Belize, Dame Froyla Tzalam, to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. The reception was held at another Mayan archaeological site, Cahal Pech, located near the town of San Ignacio.
For the reception, which highlighted the best of Belizean culture, Kate wore a fun, festive pink metallic gown. The dress comes from the British brand The Vampire’s Wife.
With the dress, Kate wore a pair of earrings that she’s had in her jewelry box for several years. These are custom crystal earrings from O’nitaa.
Kate wore the earrings for the first time at a reception hosted by the British High Commissioner in Islamabad during the Cambridges’ tour of Pakistan in October 2019.
More recently, in September 2021, she paired them with a glittering gold gown by Jenny Packham for the premiere of the James Bond film No Time to Die in London.
Here’s another look at Kate wearing the earrings on Monday evening in Belize.
On Tuesday, the Duke and Duchess made a final appearance at the Philip S. W Goldson International Airport in Belize before departing for Jamaica. Kate wore red and white for their departure, including a vintage red Yves Saint Laurent jacket that she bought while at the University of St. Andrews.
She also wore a pair of striking earrings for the departure. These feature gold shell-shaped studs and baroque pearl pendants. I don’t think we’ve been given any information about their provenance. I initially guessed that they were from a Belizean jewelry designer, but the Kate Middleton Style website has identified them as the Coral Shell Drop Earrings from Anthropologie.
She also wore a bracelet we’ve seen her wear before: a gold and enamel bangle from Halcyon Days. Now, the royal tour moves on to Jamaica. We’ll continue our coverage of Kate’s jewelry here over the next few days.
