Kate Middleton and Prince William arrive at Windsor Castle to attend Queen Elizabeth II's and Prince Philip's 70th wedding anniversary dinner on November 20, 2017 in Windsor, England.

As she was snapped in the auto on route to the party with husband Prince William and bro-in-law Harry by her side, we could just about spot the historic necklace Kate was wearing.

Kate teamed the striking pearl choker with a pair of Collingwood pearl and diamond earrings which had been a wedding present to the late Diana, and which Kate had previously worn in July during the state banquet for the visiting Spanish royals. The 35-year-old royal also wore the dress for the 2014 Royal Variety Performance, when she was pregnant with Prince George.

The four-strand pearl choker with a diamond clasp in the shape of diamonds was made for the Queen using cultured pearls that the Japanese government gifted her.

Senior superintendent of police Suleman Choudhary said the incident occurred at Ladoli village in Kathua district. A Board of Inquiry was being constituted to investigate the cause of accident, the release added.

On Monday evening, Kate Middleton borrowed Queen Elizabeth's choker-style pearl necklace- and she looked absolutely regal.

However, it was the Duchess of Cambridge's accessories that really caught the public's eye as Kate sped past crowds in a vehicle with Harry and William enroute to the special 70th wedding anniversary dinner.

Princess Diana also borrowed the choker from the queen for a royal function in 1982, making Duchess Kate the third generation of British royalty to wear the dazzling piece.

Earlier that day a private ceremony took place in which the queen appointed Prince Philip a Knight Grand Cross of the Royal Victorian Order in recognition of her husband's years of service.
