The Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton decided to pay tribute to her late mother-in-law Princess Diana while attending a state dinner at the Buckingham Palace on Tuesday night. 

Kate was seen sporting one of Princess Diana's tiaras which is known as the 'Lover's Knot' tiara. Kate and her husband the Duke of Cambridge Prince William were attending the dinner with King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima of Holland. Kate has been seen wearing the Lover's Knot on several occasions to other royal engagements and events. Her matching pearl earrings also belonged to Princess Diana.

As reported by People, the Lover's Knot tiara is estimated to be 100 years old and belongs to Queen Elizabeth II. The tiara was originally commissioned by Queen Elizabeth's mother Queen Mary in the year 1914. 



 

Kate Middleton sported the tiara with a gorgeous light blue Alexander McQueen gown to the event. Princess Diana had been presented the Lover's Knot tiara as a wedding gift for her marriage to Prince Charles, according to 'Town & Country'. It is reported that the pearl headset is extremely heavy and it used to hurt Princess Diana's head while she wore it, but that never stopped her from wearing it.



 

When Princess Diana and Prince Charles separated, the tiara was returned to the Queen and did not make any appearance until Kate Middleton wore it to another state function in the year 2015. 

Recently, Princess Diana's jewelry is being worn a lot by her daughters-in-law Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle. Meghan was also seen sporting some of her jewelry, diamond butterfly earrings and a gold bracelet, while she was in Australia on her first royal tour along with her husband, the Duke of Sussex Prince Harry. The jewelry was even more symbolic on her first day in Sydney, as it was the same day that the Kensington Palace announced that they were expecting their first child together.
