Kate Middleton wowed with Princess Diana’s favourite tiara as she arrived at the Queen’s Diplomatic Reception in Buckingham Palace with Prince William.
It’s not often the Duchess Of Cambridge dons a tiara, but tonight she pulled out all the stops to dazzle for the occasion as did Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall who also wore what looked like a crown.
UK Press Kate appears to be wearing a tiara once owned by Diana, teamed with delicate dangling earrings and a classy necklace tonight.
At the same event last year, the Duchess wore Princess Diana’s signature tiara for the second time at a glittering reception.
UK Press Kate teamed it with a red Jenny Packham gown and a pair of sparkling diamond earrings for the annual event honouring Britain’s diplomatic community.
The first time Kate wore a tiara was on her wedding day when she selected the understated Cartier Halo headpiece.
Her Majesty has not worn this piece very often, which used to be known as the Scroll tiara, but she did loan it to her sister Princess Margaret on several occasions.
It was made famous again in 2011, when Kate wore it for her wedding to Prince William.
Although it’s not the grandest of crowns from the royal jewellery vaults, it’s become iconic because of Kate.
