Princess Kate came out again in her favorite accessory. The British royal wore the Lover’s Knot tiara during a state banquet at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday 22 November.
While Kate, 40, previously wore a headdress that belonged to the late Princess Diana, on Tuesday she wore the jewel for the first time as the new Princess of Wales. The native of England received this title after the d*ath of Queen Elizabeth II on 8 September.
The beloved tiara was commissioned by Queen Mary and is at least 100 years old. court jeweler. For the palace gala, the princess donned a sparkler with a crystal-embellished dress by Jenny Packham.
The dress had bell sleeves with slits in the center. She also honored her late mother-in-law, who died at age 36 in 1997 and at age 36 in 1997, by wearing Diana’s South Sea diamond and pearl earrings. The dangling gems were one of Diana’s favorites as she wore them several times, including at an event where she received a humanitarian award from Henry Kissinger in New York in 1995.
Kate completed her outfit with a bracelet that belonged to the late Queen and an order of the Royal Family, as well as the star and sash of a Dame Grand Cross of the Royal Victorian Order.
She attended the meeting with her husband, Prince Williamwho looked elegant in a dark suit adorned with medals from each of the three anniversaries he participated in, commemorating his grandmother’s historic reign.
The dinner was also a milestone for King Charles III as it was his first as a British monarch. The Queen’s eldest son led the event, welcoming the President of South Africa. Cyril Ramaphosa. (The last state banquet took place in 2019. Then the then president joined Elizabeth Donald Trump.)
Queen consort Camilla was next to her husband and looked regal as always in a royal blue dress from Bruce Oldfield. She paired the piece with Queen Elizabeth’s Belgian sapphire tiara, her first appearance of the tiara since Charles took the throne in September.
The tiara, along with the necklace and earrings, were a gift from Elizabeth’s father, King George VI, who gave them as a wedding present in 1947.
Camilla, 75, recently paid her respects to Her Majesty as she spoke to guests during the royal reception on Thursday 17 November.
“I can’t begin without paying tribute to my dear mother-in-law, Her late Majesty, whom we think a lot about today and whom we all miss so much,” she said almost two months after the funeral of the royal matriarch. “Throughout her remarkable reign, her vision of improving the lives and prospects of all Commonwealth citizens, as you know, has remained very close to her heart.”
