The recently appointed Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton maintained her modest image as she wore understated jewellery to Gary Barlow’s charity event at the Royal Albert Hall last week.

She might inspire those in search of online jewellery as the new royal looked effortlessly elegant in a patterned dress, gold chain-link bracelet and her wedding ring.

Flicking her hair to the side at one point, Middleton showcased her stunning bracelet that reminded fans she likes to keep it simple when it comes to jewellery.

Her wedding ring was also beautiful as its sparkling diamonds celebrated her pairing with the older prince, William.

However, Middleton’s outfit choice sparked some controversy as reality TV star Amy Childs was snapped wearing the same dress at a later point.

Speculation now surrounds the star of The Only Way is Essex, with critics hailing her as Kate’s newest celebrity fan.

Childs paired her outfit with a bold silver ring that shone as she clutched her oversized handbag.
