The Duchess of Cambridge wore a tiara made famous by her late mother-in-law, Diana Princess of Wales.
The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, made a statement at last night's banquet in honour of the Dutch royal family by wearing one of Princess Diana's favourite tiaras.
Accompanied by her husband, Prince William Duke of Cambridge, Kate attended her third ever state banquet with the glittering accessory on her head.
The tiara Kate wore is the Lover's Knot Tiara - often referred to as the Cambridge Lover's Knot - and is one of the most famous bits of bling in the royal collection.
The 36-year-old royal paired the glittering accessory with a classy up-do which revealed pearl drop earrings also reportedly belonging to Princess Diana.
The state banquet was thrown in honour of visiting Dutch royals King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima.
The event was attended by the most senior members of the royal families of both nations as well as high ranking diplomats including Prime Minister Teresa May.
Had the Duke and Duchess of Sussex not been on their royal tour of Australia this would have been their first opportunity to attend a state banquet in London and Meghan's first opportunity to wear a tiara.
