Kate Middleton’s Glass Brooch Is a Sweet Nod to Hubby Prince William

Kate Middleton dazzles in Princess Diana's tiara at Buckingham Palace dinner

The Duchess of Cambridge has worn a piece of jewellery associated with Diana, Princess of Wales to a state banquet held in honour of the Dutch king.

The Lover's Knot tiara and Queen Alexandra's wedding necklace were both on loan from the Queen.

Kate Middleton wore a blue mermaid-style gown by Alexander McQueen to a state banquet at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday.

Middleton has actually worn the beloved tiara three times before, for the Spanish state visit in 2017, the annual diplomatic reception in 2016 and for the same event in 2015.

William, who is the patron of Tusk, previously warned: 'When I was born, there were one million elephants roaming Africa.

"And at the current pace of illegal poaching, when Charlotte turns 25, the African elephant will be gone from the wild".

The tiara was made by Royal jewellers Garrard in 1914 to Queen Mary's personal design, from pearls and diamonds already in her family's possession.

The Queen inherited the necklace following her mother's death in 2002, but has not been photographed wearing it.

Diana also wore the tiara in 1985 on an official visit to Washington with Prince Charles.

Kate and Prince William were among a clutch of royals, headed by Queen Elizabeth, who turned out to greet the Dutch royals for the kind of glittery gala that only Buckingham Palace can offer.

The duchess 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 a year ago. It was reportedly one of her favorites.

The Duchess of Cambridge also wore Diana's favorite Collingwood diamond and pearl drop earrings and a spectacular necklace borrowed from the Queen Elizabeth's collection of pearls and diamonds.

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