Princess Kate’s wedding earrings
As I have mentioned before, I don’t understand the big fascination for Will and Kate’s wedding. I will admit that the first thing I did upon waking is to see what her dress looked like. Then when I found out about her earrings, I hunted until I found a picture of them where I could clearly see the detail.
Acorns and oak leaves…perfect. They are fertility symbols you know. I wonder how long I’m going to have to wait before a plain silver version will be available for those of those they are not part of the royal family? They would be a perfect addition to my acorn jewelry collection.
There was a lot of complaints over the simplicity of these coat of arms, but I like it…but then with the acorns on it, how could I not?! The article says that the oaks were to represent the Kate and her siblings and as the symbol of England. I read somewhere else that she (because Kate helped design this) chose oaks because of the oak trees on the family estate.
As for everything else…her dress was lovely, her groom was handsome in his uniform, the spectator hats were over the top. End of interest. I hope they are happy despite the scrutiny they will have to endure.
