Buckingham Palace Diplomatic Reception
This evening (December 8, 2015), the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge joined the Queen, Prince Philip, Prince Charles, and the Duchess of Cornwall in hosting the annual diplomatic reception at Buckingham Palace. The white tie reception is the highlight of the annual diplomatic social calendar in London.
Kate wore Princess Diana's 'Cambridge Lovers Knot' tiara. The Queen, who inherited the tiara from her grandmother Queen Mary, gave Diana the tiara as a present on her wedding day and it became her most famous and most glamorous one. Heavy and often difficult to wear, the piece, composed of jewels that Mary had in her collection, features swinging pearls hanging from 19 diamond arches capped with lovers' knots bows. It was designed in 1913 for Mary, George V's wife, to look like the 1818 Lovers Knot Tiara made for Princess Augusta of Hesse, the Duchess of Cambridge and wife of George III's seventh son, Prince Adolphus.

The Duchess is so Classically Beautiful.

This is such a Magnificent and So VERY Stunningly Beautiful Tiara.
