Kate Middleton's Christmas present from Prince William sells out in minutes

Kate Middleton's earrings which were reportedly from her husband Prince William sold out within minutes online.

The Princess of Wales stepped out at Sandringham on Christmas Day wearing the £100 gold-plated earrings as she attended the Royal Family's traditional church service. The ocean blue Dina earrings from high street brand Sezane sold out online within minutes of Kate sporting them on December 25, Birmingham Live reports.

People rushed to compliment the Princess of Wales after a picture emerged of her heading to the service with her family. One person tweeted: “They are gorgeous earrings, she is bound to love them. I wish my husband was as thoughtful as William!”

Kate, who became Princess of Wales when Charles ascended the throne as King, was joined by her three kids at Sandringham as they enjoyed a traditional Christmas Day church service.

Another said: "It seems the Princess of Wales is wearing a Treacy hat and Sezane earrings today." Twitter users were quick to reply. One said: "Lovely earrings". Another added: "Cool, thanks for that info, was trying to find them!"

Members of the Royal Family were greeted outside the church by the Reverend Canon Dr Paul Rhys Williams before they climbed the steps to the church. The National Anthem was sung before the first hymn, O Come, All Ye Faithful.

Members of the public who gathered outside the church listened to the service played over speakers.

Among them was Gemma Clark, 42, who travelled with her 72-year-old father Paul Clark from Long Sutton, Lincolnshire, and gave toys to George, Charlotte and Louis. Miss Clark, who was in a wheelchair, said it was “absolutely brilliant” to meet William and Kate and their three children.

She said: “I love them to bits, especially the children, the children are amazing. Prince Louis – I love Louis.

“He’s always cheeky, that Louis is, but I love him.”

She said she gave each of the three children a novelty toy called a gonk, which is like a festive gnome with a pointed hat. She also gave flowers to Kate. Ms Clark added: “They said ‘thank you very much’ and ‘happy Christmas.

“I also met the King as well, just for a brief minute. The King is absolutely gorgeous, I like King Charles III, I think he’s going to be an amazing King, I really do.”
