Kate Middleton Looks Every Inch A Princess In Diana's Favorite Tiara

Kate Middleton paid homage to her husband's late mother, Princess Diana, on Tuesday night at a state dinner.

The royal donned a powder blue gown from Alexander McQueen, adorned with the pearl-and-diamond Lover's Knot tiara, teardrop pearl earrings and matching necklace previously worn by the Queen Mother, Queen Elizabeth II's mom, reported by a royal expert.

The jewellery was so stunning it nearly outshone her Alexander McQueen dress, an icy blue-grey taffeta ball gown with a dropped waist falling to a full skirt with a slight train swirling around her feet.

Kate has worn the headpiece a number of times including at a diplomatic reception in 2016, and also at a state banquet for King Felipe and Queen Letizia of Spain when they visited Britain a year ago.

The design includes a pattern of heart-shaped, knotted bows which resulted in the name "Lover's Knot".

The events were pretty similar; Harry and Meghan were at a state dinner hosted by the President of Fiji at the Grand Pacific Hotel and William and Kate were at a state dinner at Buckingham Palace which the Queen had put on in honour of Queen Maxima and King Willem-Alexander of The Netherlands who are on a two-day visit to the UK.

Much has been made by the arrival as it marks the first official visit by the Dutch royal family to the United Kingdom in 35 years.

However, as it happens the diamonds and pearls weren't the most striking element of the duchess's outfit.

The necklace features eight pearls surrounded by diamonds, each connected with festoons of diamonds and three detachable diamond and pearl drop pendants.

She also wore the Royal Family Order brooch, which is made out of glass. While we gawked over her yellow pin and its significance - this is the first time in over a decade we've seen a new royal wear the honor - another detail of the piece slipped discretely under the radar.
