Kate Middleton never met Diana, Princess of Wales, but she’s paying tribute to her late mother-in-law by wearing her tiara.

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.

For down-to-earth Kate Middleton, who often shops at the GAP and Zara, the tiara is a reality check that she actually rules.

    A Prominent Conservative Scholar Is Arguing the Mueller Probe Is Unconstitutional

    One of the founders of the conservative Federalist Society is advancing a controversial legal theory that Robert Mueller’s special counsel investigation is unconstitutional. In a guest editorial in the Wall Street Journal earlier this month and a call with reporters Friday afternoon, Northwestern law professor Steven Calabresi argued that Mueller cannot oversee such a broad investigation because he was not confirmed by the Senate. Calabresi argues that under the Appointments Clause of the Constitution, an official overseeing the probe would be a “principal officer,” and thus would have to be someone who was appointed by the president and confirmed by the Senate.

    Exclusive: Tesla flies in new battery production line for Gigafactory

    FRANKFURT/SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Tesla Inc has flown six planes full of robots and equipment from Europe to California in an unusual, high-stakes effort to speed up battery production for its Model 3 electric sedan, people familiar with the matter told Reuters this week. Transporting equipment for a production line by air is costly and hardly ever done in the automotive industry, and the move underscores Tesla Chief Executive Elon Musk's urgency to get a grip on manufacturing problems that have hobbled the launch of the high-volume Model 3 and pushed Tesla's finances deep into the red. "As usual with Tesla, everything is being done in a massive hurry and money seems to be no obstacle," said one of the two sources.
