Duchess of Cambridge wears Princess Diana's tiara for state banquet

The Duchess of Cambridge attends the Netherlands State Banquet More

She added extra wow factor with Diana's Collingwood Pearl and Diamond Earrings and the diamond and pearl Queen Alexandra Wedding Necklace, on loan from the Queen.

Duchess Kate stepped out in the late Princess Diana's beloved tiara for the Dutch state banquet at Buckingham Palace Tuesday night.

The events were pretty similar; Harry and Meghan were at a state dinner hosted by the President of Fiji at the Grand Pacific Hotel and William and Kate were at a state dinner at Buckingham Palace which the Queen had put on in honour of Queen Maxima and King Willem-Alexander of The Netherlands who are on a two-day visit to the UK. According to Majesty magazine, this change in materials was done intentionally as a vouch of support for Prince William's campaign to ban ivory.

'And at the current pace of illegal poaching, when Charlotte turns 25, the African elephant will be gone from the wild'.

It was one of the Queen Mother's favourite pieces, with the royal photographed wearing it on numerous occasions. Online, the tiara is more than 100 years old and belongs to Queen Elizabeth, although it was originally commissioned in 1914 for the queen's grandmother, Queen Mary.

Take a look through her impressive collection below.




British Prime Minister Theresa May was also on hand.

King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands accompanied by Queen Maxima are staying at Buckingham Palace during their two day stay in the United Kingdom.

Cape Town - The Duchess of Cambridge looked stunning wearing a handsome diamond tiara, as she paid homage to her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana, on Tuesday night at a state dinner.

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

In her will Queen Mary left the tiara to to the Queen who wore it frequently, including at an evening event in 1955.

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