After touring Belize and Jamaica, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge finished up their Platinum Jubilee tour with a visit to the Bahamas. Today, we’ve got a look at all the jewels that Kate wore for this final leg of the Caribbean tour.
The Duke and Duchess arrived at Lynden Pindling International Airport in Nassau on Thursday to kick off the final leg of their Platinum Jubilee tour of the Caribbean. Like Belize and Jamaica, the Bahamas is currently a Commonwealth realm: an independent nation with the Queen as head of state.
As usual, following the official welcome ceremony at the airport, the first event on the program was an important government visit. William and Kate met with Prime Minister Philip Davis and his wife, Ann-Marie, at his office in Nassau.
For her arrival in the Bahamas, Kate wore an aquamarine dress from Emilia Wickstead. The color paid tribute to one of the colors in the flag of the Bahamas, a diplomatic nod that Kate has made several times over the course of the tour.
She wore yet another pair of earrings from Sezane with the dress. These are their Taylor earrings, made of plated gold and set with turquoises. She also wore a set of pearly hair pins.
No bracelets with this outfit—Kate just wore her usual trio of rings.
Friday was a rainy day in the Bahamas, but the tour events went ahead largely as scheduled.
William and Kate made several stops in Nassau, including a visit to the Sybil Strachan Primary School, where they attended a special assembly.
They also attended a Junkanoo, a traditional street parade that mixes cultural traditions from the Caribbean and from African nations.
For these engagements in Nassau, Kate wore a mint green dress from Self Portrait.
She accessorized with a pair of earrings by a Bahamian designer, Nadia Irena.
Later in the day, the Cambridges changed into casual clothes for the Platinum Jubilee Sailing Regatta in Nassau.
Naturally, Kate kept her jewelry very minimal for the regatta, wearing just a pair of gold hoop earrings.
Kate saved the glamorous jewels for Friday’s evening event: a reception hosted by Governor General Cornelius A. Smith at the Baha Mar Resort in Nassau.
She looked every inch the princess in an ice-blue ballgown from British designer Phillipa Lepley.
With the glamorous gown, Kate wore a necklace and matching earrings from Van Cleef & Arpels. These jewels, made of gold and mother-of-pearl, are from the firm’s Magic Alhambra line. Kate previously wore them at the BAFTAs in 2020.
Saturday was the final day of the royal tour. The Duke and Duchess traveled to Great Abaco, which was hit hard by Hurricane Dorian in the summer of 2019. They toured Daystar Evangelical Church, where they heard from people who experienced the devastation of the hurricane first hand.
They also made a visit to Abaco’s Memorial Wall, where they paid tribute to those who lost their lives in the disaster.
Afterward, they participated in a very Bahamian tradition: a fish fry. There, they sampled traditional Bahamian dishes, and Kate even pitched in to help with some of the food preparation.
For the visit to Great Abaco, Kate wore a pink dress from Rixo.
She wore her new earrings from Bahamian jewelry designer Nadia Irena again with the pink and white ensemble.
On Saturday evening, the Cambridges headed back to the UK, departing on a flight from Lynden Pindling International Airport in Nassau.
Kate wore a yellow and white Alessandra Rich dress, which featured throwback ’80s-inspired details, for the official departure ceremony.
The dress featured jewelry-like details as well. Kate finished off the look—the last of the lengthy tour—with a pair of gold earrings. These feature interesting drops, which look to be set with a milky gemstone of some sort.
