The Duchess of Cambridge looked stunning on Wednesday evening as she joined the royal family at Buckingham Palace.
Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, stole the show as she attended the Queen’s Diplomatic Reception at Buckingham Palace this week.
Prince William’s wife looked stunning in a black Alexander McQueen gown, which she styled with a number of royal jewels.
The most noticeable was of course the Lover’s Knot tiara, which used to belong to the late Princess Diana.
The Lovert’s Knot tiara was created in 1914 for the Queen, which she later gave to Diana as a wedding gift when she wed Prince Charles.
Diana most famously wore the tiara during a visit to Hong Kong in 1989 where she paired in with a pearl-beaded suit.
Kate Middleton also wore a number of other royal jewels for the annual white tie Diplomatic Corps reception, including the Queen’s Nizam of Hyderabad necklace – which she is believed to have lent to her grandaughter-in-law.
Also in attendance for the evening was Queen Elizabeth II, who dressed in a white lace gown, teamed with a number of emerald green jewels.
Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, also attended, also wearing a white gown, teamed with the Queen’s Greville tiara, estimated to be worth £3 million.
