Kate Middleton Wows In Princess Diana's Tiara

The Duchess of Cambridge dazzled in Princess Diana 's signature tiara and a necklace borrowed from The Queen last night as Britain rolled out the red carpet for the Spanish state visit.

Kate and William joined The Queen and Prince Philip as they host King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia of Spain for a glittering State Banquet at Buckingham Palace.

It was just the sixth time Kate has worn a tiara and the third time she has chosen the pearl and diamond Cambridge Lover's Knot, which was given to Diana as a wedding present from The Queen in 1981.


The Duchess teamed the glittering headpiece with a dress by Marchesa and a dazzling necklace belonging to The Queen - the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Bandeau Necklace, a V shaped diamond and ruby collar ending in a diamond drop pendant.

The Cambridge Lover's Knot tiara was made by royal jewellers Garrard in 1914 for Queen Mary and passed down through royal generations.

It was allegedly so heavy that it gave Diana headaches, however she wore it several times.

After her death it was kept in a safe until it was given to Kate, who has worn it twice before - at the annual Buckingham Palace diplomatic reception in 2015 and 2016.

Kate also wore Princess Diana's Collingwood Pearl and Diamond Earrings.
