On Wednesday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended a state banquet at Buckingham Palace, with Kate decked out in a low-cut pink Marchesa gown, a diamond-and-ruby necklace borrowed from Queen Elizabeth, and Diana’s pearl-and-diamond tiara — a wedding gift from the queen when Diana married her son Prince Charles.
The tiara, known as the Cambridge Lover’s Knot, is a family heirloom from 1914. According to the Mirror, the jewels are so heavy that Diana got headaches from wearing the piece.
The duchess first wore a glittering headpiece during her 2011 wedding to Prince William, and then in 2013 to a white-tie reception. In 2015, she wore one to attend a state banquet and then one month later to the Diplomatic Reception at Buckingham Palace. And we last spotted Kate in a tiara in a family photograph taken in December.
