Kate Middleton and Prince William have served up date-night outfit goals once again (to no one's surprise). While attending the BAFTA Awards on February 10, the Duchess of Cambridge managed to look absolutely bridal in a white one-shoulder Alexander McQueen frock (flashback to her wedding dress designer!). But, on a more sentimental note, her ensemble also included a subtle nod to her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana.

The mother of three accessorized with a stunning pair of silver and pearl drop earrings from Princess Di's jewelry collection, which feature a horseshoe-like design surrounded by crystals. According to People, Prince William's mother sported the jewels back in 1995 while attending an event for the United Celebral Palsy Foundation, during which she received the Humanitarian of the Year Award. Topping off her look at the film awards show, Kate also sported a white clutch, a silver cuff to match her earrings, and her covetable engagement ring (which belonged to the People's Princess as well).

This is hardly the first time Kate has recycled family accessories. The 37-year-old debuted the diamond-and-pearl Cambridge Lover’s Knot tiara for a state banquet in 2015, then later rewore the elegant adornment for a similar event two years later. Vanity Fair notes that Princess Diana received said historic headpiece, which was one of her favorites, as a wedding gift.

Major props to Kate for keeping her mother-in-law's memory alive—and, admittedly, we're just a tad bit jealous over the amount of royal jewels at her disposal.
