Duchess Kate dons Prince William's mother's Cambridge Lover’s Knot tiara at Queen Elizabeth's dinner.
Duchess Kate honored Princess Diana at a state dinner this week when she wore a tiara that belonged to her late mother-in-law.
The Cambridge Lover’s Knot tiara which Duchess Kate wore was presented as a gift to Princess Diana on her wedding day in July 1981. It was originally made in 1913 by Queen Mary, grandmother to Queen Elizabeth.
The sparkling tiara is understood to have been a favorite of Princess Diana.
At the state dinner on Tuesday, Duchess Kate was joined by her husband Prince William as the royals welcomed King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima of the Netherlands.
British Prime Minister Theresa May was also in attendance.
