Kate dons Diana tiara for state banquet

While Kate Middleton and Prince William have been enjoying some time away from the spotlight, which has been focused on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's royal Australian tour, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge couldn't help but turn heads when they stepped out for a royal engagement on October 23.

Her decision to have a glass miniature is likely to be a reflection of William's passion for conservation work, which includes campaigning to end the ivory trade.

The duchess has worn the tiara on several other occasions, including diplomatic receptions at Buckingham Palace in 2015 and 2016, and a state banquet in honor of King Felipe and Queen Letizia of Spain 2017, according to Harper's Bazaar.

Her necklace is actually Queen Alexandra's wedding necklace, and the necklace is over one century old!

The tiara is over one hundred years old and now belongs to the Queen, though it once belonged to Queen Mary. She looks like a queen now because she looks utterly comfortable wearing the trappings.

Diana also wore the tiara in 1985 on an official visit to Washington with Prince Charles. It was one of her most important marital presents, coming from her groom himself, and she wore it on their wedding day at St. George's Chapel, Windsor.

Kate Middleton paid homage to her husband's late mother, Princess Diana, on Tuesday night at a state dinner. It was originally designed for Queen Mary and was eventually passed down to Queen Elizabeth, who often loaned it to Princess Diana.

Attending an extravagant state dinner at Buckingham Palace in honour of the King and Queen of Norway, Middleton sparkled in a shimmering powder blue Alexander McQueen gown with tear drop pearl earrings and a diamond, pearl necklace.

It's thought that the queen bestowed the order on Kate in December past year.
