Kate Middleton steps out wearing lovely Diana hand-me-down

08 December 2017

Certainly not Kate Middleton, who wore the Cambridge Lover's Knot tiara, a favorite of Princess Diana's, for the fourth time on Tuesday, December 5 to the Queen's Winter Party at Buckingham Palace.

This is the third time the duchess has worn the tiara to the annual event, which is attended by senior royals, foreign diplomats, and other government officials.

The duchess first wore the grand design at her wedding to Prince William in 2011.

The tiara has an even greater history though, reportedly being commissioned by Queen Mary in 1913. The Cambridge Lover's Knot did not make that cut and was placed into storage.

In addition to the tiara, the duchess wore a pair of pearl drop earrings that once belonged to Diana. Upon the divorce of the Princess from Prince Charles, the tiara was returned back into storage.

She also wore the tiara in December 2016, at the same Buckingham Palace event previous year, where she donned a bright red lace Jenny Packham gown. In July of this year, Kate was spotted wearing it again at a state dinner with Spain's King Felipe and Queen Letizia.

Though the tiara was one of Diana's favorites, it was actually made for Queen Mary in 1914 by Garrard, jeweler to the British royal family.
