The Real History Behind The Duchess of Cambridge's Royal Jewellery
The Duchess of Cambridge is known for her perfectly crafted sense of style, and that extends to her glittering accessories. Pre-marriage Kate wasn't really one for major sparkle, but having access to Queen Elizabeth II's jewellery vault can easily turn any woman into a bling-lover.

We've tracked down the history of all the borrowed pieces that Kate has added to her working wardrobe, from diamond-encrusted brooches with deep meanings to tricky tiaras.
