Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton visited the exhibition “Faberge in London: from romance to revolution.” The royal was delighted with the Faberge Easter eggs, which belonged to the royal and imperial Romanov dynasties.

The 37-year-old wife of Prince William appeared at the exhibition in black trousers and a colorful Ralph Lauren blouse with a paisley pattern.

At the exhibition, the Duchess saw many works by Carl Faberge. One of the Easter eggs belonged to the royal Romanov family. This exhibit has a mystical past.

In 1887, Emperor Alexander III presented this egg to his wife Maria Feodorovna for Easter. And in the Soviet period, the egg was lost in Russia. Later, he was found by an ordinary merchant who did not immediately understand the value of the souvenir.

Today the cost of such an egg is $ 33 million.

By the way, Kate Middleton really liked the exhibition. Hello conveyed the words of the curator of the exhibition, Kayren McCartney, who was watching the Duchess. McCartney noted that Middleton wondered how the master managed to complete such complex orders.

“How did they do it?” Kate Middleton repeated.
