It was designed for Queen Victoria in 1839 by Rundell, Bridge and Rundell – then the royal jewellers – and it is a fascinating amalgam of British monarchical history. Among its treasures are the St Edwards sapphire, Queen Elizabeth I’s pearl earrings, The Black Prince’s ruby, the Stuart sapphire, and the gargantuan Cullinan II diamond – one of two major stones cut from the largest gem-quality diamond ever found (the second sits atop the sovereign’s sceptre and cross).

Rania paired the elegant gown with what appears to be her Jimmy Choo Romy 100 pumps in white satin.

Also on Farfetch, these are currently retailed at £550 for those who want to recreate the Queen Rania look.

The official description reads: "These classic Romy pumps from Jimmy Choo are a wardrobe staple.
