Dazzling Duchess: Kate Middleton Shines in Lover’s Knot Tiara

The Queen hosted a white-tie reception at Buckingham Palace for approximately 1000 members of the diplomatic corps. Kate Middleton looked beautiful in a navy velvet gown by Alexander McQueen, which she paired with her Lover's Knot Tiara.

In addition to the British monarch and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Charles and Camilla also attended the annual soirée. Tiaras were a must for the ladies, with most guests wearing sashes and medals that indicated various royal honours.

The Duchess of Cambridge paired her tiara with the striking Nizam of Hyderabad necklace – a piece loaned to her by the Queen.  Her blue sash symbolises her role as a member of the Royal Victorian Order, which she received from the Queen in April as a gift for her eighth wedding anniversary with Prince William. She also wore her soft yellow Royal Family Order, a separate honour, which made its debut in October of 2018. The Royal Family Order features a jewel encased image of the Queen pinned on a chartreuse yellow ribbon and worn is on the left shoulder. The miniature portrait, painted on glass, depicts the Queen as a young woman in evening dress wearing the ribbon and star of the Order of the Garter.   

Queen Elizabeth sported a white Angela Kelly state gown for the occasion, a look which she paired with white gloves and the Vladimir tiara with emerald and diamond drops.
