Did Kate Middleton Wear Her Gift From William On Christmas Day?

Kate Middleton's regal purple Christmas day outfit confirmed to us that the Duchess of Cambridge is developing her own signature style. But what we didn't realise was that part of her ensemble was down to her husband's good taste.

It's thought that the earrings that she wore were a present from Prince William - bought to celebrate the pair's first Christmas together as a married couple.

The amethyst 18-carat gold drop earrings were created by Kiki McDonough, and are worth £1900. William has clearly been paying attention to what lurks in Kate's jewellery box as she's proven herself to be fan of the designer in the past. In the summer she wore a pair of Kiki McDonough earrings to the races at Epsom. William, we're impressed!
