Royal Dresses of the Day: Kate and Letizia in Black and Sparkle

Don't have a tiara for you today; do have a whole bunch of other diamonds. Because this is a week of our royal regulars falling in accidental sync with one another, and two of them opted for one eternal favorite combo: black dresses loaded up with diamond accessories.

The Duchess of Cambridge attended the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families Gala Dinner on Tuesday.
Kate repeated this Diane von Furstenberg black lace gown, one she wore when she was pregnant the last time around. Then she pepped up the whole thing with a big dose of diamonds on loan from the Queen, which was a nice touch for those of us put right to sleep by the dress itself.

Along with Diamond Pendant Earrings that she's borrowed before, she debuted the Diamond Quatrefoil Bracelet. This bracelet goes back to the Queen Mother (covered here at the Vault). I think we can officially add her name to the membership list of the Royal Bracelet Fan Club.

The King and Queen of Spain attended a return dinner with the President and First Lady of Irsrael during their state visit to Spain.

And then we have the current President of the Royal Bracelet Fan Club, who unearthed a pair of bracelets not seen since earlier in her marriage for the Israeli return dinner.

To those, she added a ring and the mega diamond earrings from the joyas de pasar. She debuted those earlier this year, when she first wore the Fleur de Lys Tiara.

All of that was in addition to a new Carolina Herrera dress which is, by itself, a vision of a sparkly night sky. Sparkle on sparkle on sparkle, atta queen.
