Duchess Kate dazzles in Princess Diana's tiara at Buckingham Palace banquet

Kate wore the Lotus Flower Tiara with an ice blue Alexander Mc Queen for the Diplomatic Reception in December 2013. It was the first time we’d seen her in a tiara since her wedding. It once belonged to the Queen Mother and was originally a necklace that

The state banquet for the Dutch royals, the first for Willem-Alexander and his Argentine-born wife Maxima, followed the usual pattern for royal state visits, including an elaborate ceremonial welcome and a state carriage procession to the palace.

The tiara has appeared on Kate's head a few times over the years, usually at state banquets at Buckingham Palace like the event last night.

The order, which is also worn by the Duchess of Cornwall, Princess Anne and the Countess of Wessex, features a jewel encased image of the Queen pinned on a chartreuse yellow ribbon and worn on the left shoulder. Kate was also wearing, as widely expected, the Queen Mary Lover's Knot Tiara.

Since Queen Mary died in 1953 the Cambridge Lover's Knot tiara has been handed down to Queen Elizabeth II who gifted it to Princess Diana when she Wednesday Prince Charles.

It was originally designed for Queen Mary and was eventually passed down to Queen Elizabeth, who often loaned it to Princess Diana.

Kate Middleton paid homage to her husband's late mother, Princess Diana, on Tuesday night at a state dinner.

It was also seen on Kate at last year's Diplomatic Reception.
