Kate Middleton: Duchess of Cambridge’s new fern brooch symbolises ‘strength and endurance’


Kate Middleton was spotted wearing a new diamond brooch when she stepped out to attend the Anzac Day service earlier this week. Diamond experts at Steven Stone Jewellers took a closer look at the Duchess of Cambridge’s piece of jewellery and suggested a hidden meaning behind its design.

Kate rarely wears brooches unless it’s a formal occasion.

For Anzac Day she opted for a new brooch, a small diamond fern which looked extremely similar to the design featured on her sister, Pippa Middleton’s, wedding tiara.

The jewellery experts also said it was similar to Queen Elizabeth’s New Zealand fern brooch.

But it resembled a miniature version of the larger piece gifted to the Queen by the Mayor of Auckland in 1953.

Taking a close look at these key pieces, Steven Stone’s leading jewellery expert Zack Stone presented his analysis.

Her sister, Pippa’s wedding tiara, on the other hand, is said to have an estimated value of £20,000.

The Queen’s New Zealand Fern brooch is said to be the most expensive out of the three, valued at £25,000.

Zack Stone, Managing Director at Steven Stone, said: “Kate Middleton’s brooch features a stunning fern design, very similar to the tiara worn by her sister, Pippa, on her wedding day.

One brooch that’s origins remains a mystery is the Duchess of Cambridge’s Oak Leaf Acorn Brooch. 

The diamond brooch represents the Middleton family’s coat of arms and features three acorns on an oak leaf stem representing the three Middleton children – Catherine, Phillipa and James.

Kate was seen wearing the brooch in 2012 during the Diamond Jubilee celebrations for the first time.
