Every time the Duchess of Cambridge has worn a tiara

Every time the Duchess of Cambridge has worn a tiara

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge was slammed on social media for her evening gown during a state banquet at Buckingham Palace on October 23, 2018.

Dating from 1914 and also known as Queen Mary's Tiara, Diana famously wore it during her visit to Washington with Prince Charles in 1985, although she used to complain that it was so heavy it gave her headaches.

However, it was the material of the dress that most people commented on with many questioning the "crinkled" fabric.

The Duchess of Cambridge also wore Diana's favorite Collingwood diamond and pearl drop earrings and a spectacular necklace borrowed from the Queen Elizabeth's collection of pearls and diamonds.

Overnight, the royal family - well, the members who are in Britain - attended a state banquet to welcome the King and Queen of Netherlands to the country.

Middleton has actually worn the beloved tiara three times before, for the Spanish state visit in 2017, the annual diplomatic reception in 2016 and for the same event in 2015.

Having come into her royal stride in 2011, the Duchess of Cambridge now runs her daily engagement style something like sartorial clockwork.

But all eyes were on the stunning pearl and diamond tiara glistening atop the royal's head. Queen Elizabeth II, Camilla and Netherland's Queen Maxima were all wearing one - so where was Kate's?

The Lover's Knot tiara and Queen Alexandra's wedding necklace were both on loan from the Queen. It was one of her most important marital presents, coming from her groom himself, and she wore it on their wedding day at St. George's Chapel, Windsor.

The Duchess of Cambridge customised her new royal brooch in a sweet tribute to Prince William - as it is made out of glass instead of ivory.

British Prime Minister Theresa May was also on hand.

It's thought that the queen bestowed the order on Kate in December previous year.
