When it comes to her wardrobe, the Duchess of Cambridge loves to rewear her favourite pieces.

In the past, the mum-of-three’s earrings of choice have often alternated between affordable high street jewellery brands, such as Missoma and Accessorize.

For 2021, the duchess seems to have upped the earring anti, switching to be a pair of trendy pearl drop earrings by Simone Rocha.

The duchess donned the earrings on Monday 25 January, when the Duke and Duchess sent a Burns Night video message to staff at NHS Tayside in Dundee, Scotland.

As well as the sweet message, the couple and the charity provided staff with a special lunch to mark the Scottish celebration.

The Duchess has in fact been seen in the Simone Rocha Faux Pearl Earrings several times this month already.

The duchess wore the designer accessory on a video call with nurses and doctors up and down the country.

On 9 January, in a tribute to the royal on her birthday, a photo of the Duchess wearing the stylish earrings during a three-day tour of Scotland, England and Wales in December 2020 was shared on Instagram.

In fact, a scroll back through Kensington Palace’s Instagram account shows that the earrings have slowly been working their way into the duchess’s regular rotation for a while.

Back in November 2020, a clip of Kate thanking frontline workers for their help during the coronavirus pandemic was posted on social media where the royal was seen wearing a dusky pink suit with the pearl hoop earrings.

The duchess’ exact earrings cost over £200 and are now very hard to get hold of due to ‘The Kate Effect’.

But, luckily, the style is very on-trend for 2021, so there are lots of high street stores creating similar designs for less.

We’ve found a selection of similar designs, which start at a very affordable £4.50.
