A new portrait of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge was unveiled today.

The pearl-and-diamond piece dates from the late 1800s and Princess Augusta of Hesse-Kassel, who was married to Prince Adolphus, Duke of Cambridge at the time. Since then, generations of royal women have worn it, including the current Duchess of Cambridge.

She wore Princess Diana’s Collingwood pearl drop earrings and a three-strand pearl bracelet for her portrait, both of which Middleton has worn previously.
