Kate Middleton will be dusting off her tiara and adding a new regal accessory as she gets ready to attend a diplomatic event hosted by the Queen.
At the annual Diplomatic Corps reception, which will be hosted by Queen Elizabeth at Buckingham Palace next Wednesday, the royal family traditionally wears their most glamorous regalia and for Kate this year, that will like include her go-to pearl and diamond tiara and her new sash symbolizing her role as a member of the Royal Victorian Order.
The royal mom of three will most likely opt for her Lover’s Knot Tiara, often referred to as the Cambridge Lover’s Knot, the sparkling topper has become a favorite of Kate’s over the years. With pearls hanging from diamond pretzel-shaped knots, the tiara was also a favorite of the late Princess Diana. More than a century old, the sunning headpiece was originally commissioned from the jeweler Garrard by Queen Mary in 1913 or 1914 and is a replica of a tiara owned by Mary’s grandmother, Princess Augusta of Hesse.
If Kate does choose to wear this much-loved tiara, it will be the fifth consecutive time she has done so at the annual event. It was last seen on Kate in June at the State Banquet to welcome President Donald Trump to the U.K. It was at the same banquet at Buckingham Palace that Kate proudly debuted her blue sash upon her by Queen Elizabeth.
