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

Bodyguard Rushes Meghan Markle Out of Fiji Market After *Six Minutes* Due to Security Risks

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.

Where we might look to Meghan, Duchess of Sussex for unpredictability-sheer Reformation dresses, trendy sneakers, messy buns noted here-Kate is all about embracing what she knows works.

JOHN STILLWELL via Getty Images Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, walks with Rear Admiral Ludger Brummelaar (R) as they attend a state banquet in honor of King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima of the Netherlands at Buckingham Palace in London on October 23.

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.

Take a look through her impressive collection below.

The duchess donned one of Princess Di's tiaras, known as the Lover's Knot.

A Kensington Palace representative told the Associated Press that there were crowd management concerns, and one royal aid reportedly said the event was "hot, humid and uncomfortably busy and there were far larger crowds than expected". 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.
