The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge joined the Queen and the Royal Family at the State Banquet for the King and Queen of the Netherlands on Tuesday night.
The diamond and pearl headpiece dates back to 1914, when Queen Mary commissioned the piece from Garrard. It was passed down to her granddaughter, the Queen, who then gave it to Princess Diana as a wedding present in 1981.
Kate teamed it with Princess Diana’s Collingwood pearl and diamond drop earrings. They were given to the late Princess of Wales as a wedding present from Collingwood jewellers, and she wore them for numerous balls and engagements.
The Duchess also wore Queen Alexandra’s Wedding Necklace – a new loan to her from the Queen.
According to From Her Majesty’s Jewel Vault, the pearl and diamond necklace is part of Queen Alexandra’s Wedding Parure – a gift from her husband Albert Edward, Prince of Wales (son of Queen Victoria and the future King Edward VII) in 1863.
Queen Mary gave the necklace to the Queen Mother, who wore it constantly. The necklace was finally reunited with the brooch and earrings when The Queen inherited it in 2002. She has never been seen wearing the tiara in public.
The Duchess wore the Royal Family Order for a second time – a personal gift from the Queen. The badge features an image of the Queen and Kate’s one is made of glass, not the traditional ivory.
Queen Maxima also wowed in the Stuart Tiara for the dinner.
