In September 2020, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge met with broadcaster and naturalist Sir David Attenborough. Kate debuted a new pair of silver earrings by Patrick Mavros. They’re Pangolin Haka Earrings. She wore them again in October 2021, for an Earthshot event at Kew Gardens.
About the earrings:
A pair of hand-polished sterling silver earrings tapered to look like a Pangolin’s tail. The designer’s website describes them as “striking yet comfortable.” They’re 3.5cm long.

Pangolins are one of the world’s most trafficked animals. Unfortunately, they’re nearly extinct. Patrick Mavros donates 10% of all sales from these earrings (and other items in the Pangolin collection) to The Tikki Hywood Trust, a charity dedicated to rescuing and rehabilitating endangered animals in Zimbabwe.
