The Duchess of Cambridge may have been making waves during her Asian tour but her elegant style was bought closer to home.
The beautiful royal has been seen wearing several pieces of jewelery that she bought from Made In Chelsea star Amber Atherton, while on her Diamond Jubilee tour of the South Pacific.
Kate Middleton, 30, hand picked seven different pieces, including earrings, bracelets, and necklaces, from the company that is run by the E4 reality TV star.

Amber, 21, told MailOnline: 'We are over the moon that Kate has been supporting British business by wearing trinkets from myflashtrash.com.'
Speaking at the Palladium Visions party, hosted by the International Palladium Board and Stephen Webster, she said: 'It was such a surprise that she actually decided to have them and yesterday we sold a pair of earrings every four minutes as customers found out it was us who sold her the pieces.'
The company's head of PR, Abbey Keys, is particularly pleased with the royal seal of approval and played a big part in getting the items noticed by Kate.
She said: 'She has now been spotted twice wearing three of our pieces which is great as she is supporting upcoming and independent British Designers.
'I sent over a lookbook of a few designers that we thought would work for Kate.'
The Duchess of Cambridge wore the piece to a dinner hosted by the King of Malaysia, at the King's Istana, Kuala Lumpur

Abbey added: 'Just before Kate went away I got a call with seven pieces she had picked herself to potentially take on her Asian Tour, so as you can imagine I and Amber were completely over the moon!'
Kate selected pieces from their Scottish/ Colombian designer Catherine Zoraida, and Serretta Morris.
'She bought the Double Leaf Earrings, Ash Leaf & Adventurine Earrings, Spread Your Wings Bracelets and a Conch Cuff from Zoraida, and Vermeil Earrings and Red Sponge Coral Earrings designed by Morris.
'Catherine's pieces are gorgeous and she can't accept gifting so for our designers it's a lovely feeling to know that Kate has chosen these pieces because she genuinely likes them instead of just wearing them because they were a gift,' she said.
Amber and her team were thrilled to discover that Kate was a keen supporter of British jewelery

Amber, who is the founder and director of myflashtrash.com, also revealed to MailOnline that she will be popping in and out of Made In Chelsea.
As filming for the fourth season of the show gets underway Amber admitted that she would be doubling her work load by joining a brand new reality show.
She said: 'I'm actually going to be in LA to film another show about Brit girls over there trying to make a success of things and crack the industry.
'There will be a few of us over in the States living together including a poet, an actress and musician.'
