Royal Rewind: Duchess Kate’s Jewels & Accessories From 2011 [PHOTOS]

One of things we admire greatly about The Duchess of Cambridge is her willingness to recycle anything from her wardrobe, be it clothing or accessories.

Without the help of a personal stylist or ladies-in-waiting to run errands, Catherine has spent her first year as a duchess successfully using and reusing key pieces that make her outfits work.

Her nude LK Bennett pumps (or “court shoes” as the Brits call them) were as much a part of any royal engagement as the Duchess herself, from her Canadian tour kick-off in a navy Erdem lace dress to Zara Phillips’ Edinburgh wedding.

She’s worn Diana’s sapphire earrings on many an occasion, gifted to her from Prince William, as well as Kiki McDonough gems from Sloane Square in London (rumored to be a Christmas present from the future King).
