600k?  That's it including the Ring of Doom?  That's barely a pair of Elizabeth Taylor's earrings.

She really hasn't gotten much out of her marriage.

What she got out of this marriage is wrinkles, bad skin, extreme thinness and a miserable look. blink Even the sligthly more expensive jewels are so bland, I guess she's the one who picked them up so it probably the blandness of it matches her taste.

The effects of her lifestyle choices and the constant stress of scheming. She really didn't make much of herself and it's a shame. She's married into a BRF that takes itself too seriously to smother themselves in jewels, the very thing that she wants to do so badly.

She doesn’t wear jewelry well anyway so it’s a waste of money.

But, to be realistic, an abundance of jewelry displayed has to be handled with political delicacy.  Overt show of wealth would not be well received.  Then again, they have no problems showing money spent on her atrocious and bland wardrobe so who knows.

You're right.

In these horrific economic times, only starlets get away with flashing bling openly on the red carpet. Kate can't even get her hands on the jewels in the vault and it's not like she works, so no point to giving them to her. Now with the economic times, if Kate were to flash bling, she would be crucified since she has so openly refused to work and the taxpayers are seething mad right now at ANYONE who openly shows the fact that they are well off. If Kate were out partying and wearing large rocks, there would be rioting in the streets and the palace would be invaded.

Kate has really shot herself in the foot.

Just think, if she had had a career and her own money, she would likely be able to buy almost any jewel of her choice and wear it without having to worry about repercussions. Instead she foolishly pursued what she thought was a sure thing, thought she would get huge rocks, but is now basically still outside looking in.

It's not about the money the jewels are worth, it's a matter of taste, it's different. Some jewels aren't too expensive and are really elegant and compliment outfits really well so I suppose it's all a matter of having taste and knowing what to wear accordingly to the occasion, but then again sometimes she just doesn't choose well what to wear in terms of clothes and jewels. All the money spent on advisors is going to waste.

Look at what she wears for the few state banquets she has attended  -  the question is the jewellery  -  is it fake or is it real, because it sure looks fake on council cath.  She is one of those people who could wear a million pound frock and beautiful jewels and still look as though it is a cheap frock from Primark and the jewels picked up from some tat store for a fiver.  No class, no taste, no etiquette, everything about her fake.  You can´t buy class or elegance, and in her case she doesn´t even try to look good.  She wears clothes my mother would not be seen dead in, ghastly and cheap looking.

No wonder no one in the Middle East gives her jewels...they'd hardly want their gifts to be made to loom like cheap cast offs from a dime store.

I don't think they want  her there anyway after she has shown such tacky behaviour flashy her lady bits and she has made the RF a laughing stock as the Arab world is well aware of the subjected discuss in another section.

Added to which didn't the British government have  to apologize to the Malaysians after that trip as she offended them by her innapropriate dressing?

Something borrowed! Kate gets a very special loan as she wears the Queen's pearl choker to join Princes William and Harry at Windsor Castle to celebrate Her Majesty and Prince Philip's 70th wedding anniversary

    The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge joined Prince Harry for the Queen's 70th anniversary celebrations
    The royals headed to Windsor Castle on Monday evening where a celebratory dinner will be held
    Not present this evening is Prince Harry's girlfriend Meghan Markle who is rumoured to be in London
    The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh are celebrating 70 years of marriage

Diana wore this choker and Waity seems to be wearing the Collingwood diamond & pearl earrings Diana used to wear. Waity clearly angling for the cameras to capture her "Diana moment".

I'm far from being an expert on fashion, but it seems that the dress Kate chose is wrong for that necklace.  The necklace should take the stage rather than competing with the dress.

It is the neckline is too high it should have been a lower neckline

1.) Kate never really goes anywhere/does anything to justify jewels, whether they were bought, gifted or borrowed from the Queen. On the occasions when jewels are called for, 9 times out of 10 the styling is off. These things are a big part of the reason why she catches so much flack.

2.) Hollywood starlets get away with wearing expensive jewels 1.) because the occasion calls for them (awards shows, fashion spreads, etc.); 2.) they are usually borrowed for said occasion; and 3.) if they are owned, they weren't purchased with tax payer funds.

3.) Yes, that neckline was all wrong for that piece. More evidence of the point made in #1.

I think the neckline could have worked. But I don't know if it was because she was sitting but the necklace didn't sit in the place it should be. It should be like a choker and she is wearing it as a normal necklace.

I still swear Ma had copies made of all the 'royal jewels' for Waity to wear when it was obvious Liz wasn't going to open the vaults.
