Kate Middleton wore a check coat and a pair of earrings with a blue precious stone in Dundee, Scotland, yesterday.

She was joined by her husband Prince William, 36, as the pair opened the V&A Museum in Dundee.

Eagle-eyed fans soon noticed the Duchess of Cambridge’s jewellery previously belonged to Princess Diana.

Prince William gave Kate Middleton these earrings in 2011, when they married.

The earrings match Kate’s stunning engagement ring, which also belonged to Princess Diana.

How much is Princess Diana’s engagement ring worth now? 

Kate’s ring is now valued at over £300,000.

The Duchess of Cambridge has other pieces linked to the Princess of Wales also.

She often wears the Cambridge Lover’s Knot tiara for state dinners.

Deborah Papas, gemologist and jewellery expert from Prestige Pawnbrokers of Channel 4’s Posh Pawn told Express.co.uk of this beautiful tiara: “The piece is hard to value due to the complexity of the make and the large number of diamonds to consider as well as natural pearls which are rare to find in this size and shape.

“However, I would think it could be worth in the region of £1 – 2 million.”

After her divorce from Prince Charles, 70, Diana replaced her engagement ring with the £75,000 gem.

Grant Mobley, a gemologist and Director at Pluczenik, one of the world’s leading diamantaires said: “A beautiful ring that Princess Diana was seen wearing on her ring finger after her divorce from Prince Charles was an emerald cut, aquamarine and diamond ring.

“The Princess was very fond of a pearl and diamond bracelet featuring a large emerald cut aquamarine that she was given in her early years as a princess and, after her divorce, she commissioned this matching ring to be made.”

“She always chose diamond jewellery that was meaningful to her – she was very intentional with her jewellery choices and made sure they were the best representation of those meaningful moments.”

Princess Diana celebrated her single life in style with this stunning ring, a gift to herself after her marriage came to an end.
