The earrings Kate Middleton wore on her last appearance have a deeper meaning

Fashion and politics go hand in hand in many ways. What someone is wearing can send a message, and no one understands that better than Kate Middleton.

In addition to the city’s own messages, thousands of people – including Grande – received bee tattoos to commemorate the tragedy and its victims.
