Kate Middleton Wearing Princess Diana's Tiara October 2018
Kate Middleton Paid Tribute to Princess Diana by Wearing Her Favorite Tiara
Kate Middleton certainly has her pick of royal tiaras, but it looks like she keeps coming back to one in particular: the Cambridge Lover's Knot. While attending a state banquet alongside Prince William and Queen Elizabeth II on Oct. 23, Kate looked like a real-life Cinderella. She opted for a blue Alexander McQueen gown, and her choice in jewelry suggests she favors the same regal accessories as her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana.
This isn't the first time Kate has made a sweet nod to Diana with this special tiara. She wore rhe Lover's Knot (from Queen Mary's collection) to diplomatic receptions in 2015, 2016, and 2017. The queen gave Diana this jeweled headpiece as a wedding present, and it became a favorite for the late princess, along with the complementary Collingwood pearl drop earrings. Ahead, see a photo of Diana wearing both the tiara and earrings, then keep reading for more snaps of Kate in the same accessories.
