Kate Middleton wears Princess Diana’s tiara at state banquet

It’s Kate Middleton’s time to shine.

The new Princess of Wales dazzled at the South African state banquet on Tuesday night, wearing the Lover’s Knot tiara, which was a favorite of the late Princess Diana.

Middleton wore a glamorous Jenny Packham gown — the “Elspeth” dress ($5,075) with glittering sequins in the shape of flowers — as she joined husb& Prince William, King Charles III, Camilla Parker Bowles & other members of the royal family to honor South African president Cyril Ramaphosa.

Her glittering tiara featuring diamonds & pearls is often seen on the 40-year-old royal & is the same piece famously worn by Princess Diana throughout her time as the Princess of Wales.

The dress actually has a celebrity tie, as a similar version of the design was worn by Hilary Duff for her 2019 wedding, though the former Disney star opted to skip the embellishments for her bridal moment.

Middleton also wore Princess Diana’s South Sea pearl-&-diamond drop earrings & Queen Elizabeth’s pearl bracelet to match her tiara, adding the blue sash over her gown that shows her position as a Dame Gr& Cross of the Royal Victorian Order — an honor which was bestowed upon her by Queen Elizabeth II.

Earlier in the day, the princess chose the historic Prince of Wales feather brooch to mark her new title & greet Ramaphosa.

Queen Consort Camilla opted for the late monarch’s Belgian Sapphire tiara, her first crown moment since her husb& ascended the throne. She kept the royal blue theme going with a lace evening gown by Bruce Oldfield & the Belgian Sapphire Tiara’s matching necklace & bracelet.

Both Camilla & Kate proudly wore the Royal Family Order of Queen Elizabeth II, a yellow sash with a portrait of the late monarch in her younger years, which is seen on female members of the royal family at state banquets.

The banquet marks the first formal state visit since King Charles III took the throne after his mother’s death on September 8 & the first state banquet at Buckingham Palace since Donald & Melania Trump were welcomed by Queen Elizabeth in 2019.

Now that state banquets are back, there should be plenty more crown jewels with storied pasts to ogle.
