From one Princess of Wales to a different.
Kate Middleton took a web page out of Princess Diana‘s model ebook when she wore one of many late royal’s favourite headpieces, the Lover’s Knot tiara, to welcome diplomats to the Buckingham Palace on Dec. 5.
For the regal reception, the 41-year-old paired the spectacular sparkler, which is adorned with 38 teardrop-shaped pearls suspended beneath diamond-studded arches, with an equally sparkly robe from Jenny Peckham. She accomplished the glitzy look with Cartier earrings as soon as belonging to the late Queen Elizabeth II.
However this was not the primary time Kate donned the Lover’s Knot tiara—or this costume. In actual fact, her complete ensemble copied the precise one she wore to Crown Prince Hussein and Princess Rajwa‘s Jordan marriage ceremony in June, proving that even princesses recycle their outfits.
And following Diana’s footsteps, Kate—who succeeded her as the Princess of Wales title last year when King Charles III‘s ascended to the British throne—is beginning to present an affinity for the Lover’s Knot tiara. The royal beforehand wore to it banquets on the Palace in 2015, 2016, 2019 and 2022.
