  • Kate wore the Lotus Flower Tiara with an ice blue Alexander Mc Queen for the Diplomatic Reception in December 2013. It was the first time we’d seen her in a tiara since her wedding. It once belonged to the Queen Mother and was originally a necklace that

Visiting for the event were King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands accompanied by Queen Maxima, who are now staying at the Palace.

The tiara, which Diana reportedly said was so heavy it gave her headaches, is a replica of a former tiara worn by the Queen Mother's grandmother, Princess Augusta of Hesse, who was also the former Duchess of Cambridge (hence the replica tiara's name).

While the Duchess of Sussex shone at her first state dinner on Tuesday in Fiji, the Duchess of Cambridge dazzled half a world away at Buckingham Palace, wearing Princess Diana's tiara at a state banquet for the visiting King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima of the Netherlands.

The tiara has appeared on Kate's head a few times over the years, usually at state banquets at Buckingham Palace like the event last night.

They also visited Westminster Abbey and attended a reception at the Palace of Westminster before the state banquet.

The tiara is over one hundred years old and now belongs to the Queen, though it once belonged to Queen Mary.

Kate finished the look with the diamond and pearl Cambridge Lover's Knot tiara owned by Princess Diana, which she also wore to the Chinese state banquet in 2015 and the Spanish state banquet past year.

British Prime Minister Theresa May was also on hand.

It was a wedding gift from Queen Victoria's son, the future King Edward VII, to his wife Princess Alexandra of Denmark in 1863.

The Duchess of Cornwall, 71, was the picture of elegance in an embroidered ivory coat dress and the Queen Mother's Greville tiara, which was loaned to her by the monarch for the evening.

It's thought that the queen bestowed the order on Kate in December a year ago.
