Kate Middleton arrived at the royal family's annual Easter service in Windsor sporting a sleek pale blue coat—a very Easter-appropriate color. Hello! pointed out that she'd previously worn the Alexander McQueen coat for an Easter service in 2014, when she and Prince William were touring Australia. But there was something else that she was rewearing too—and it had a little more meaning.

Kate donned her custom Robinson Pelham earrings, which she first debuted on her wedding day. The jewels were a gift from her parents Michael and Carole Middleton, per the Court Jeweller. An official press release described the pair as a "diamond-set stylized oak leaves with a pear shaped diamond set drop and a pave set diamond acorn suspended in the center." The oak leaves and acorns are both symbols used in the Middletons' coat of arms, which was granted to them before the wedding.

The design was also made to match that of the Cartier Halo Tiara, the sparkler Kate wore on her wedding day. Queen Elizabeth lent Kate the piece, which dates back to 1936, for her big day.

The other piece of jewelry Kate wore to this week's Easter service tied in well with her earrings. Her oak leaf brooch also seems to have some symbolism for her family, although details about the piece are scant.

It's hardly surprising that Kate would rewear either her jewels or her outfit—the Duchess is known for recycling her looks, even for the most important occasions on her royal calendar.
