It’s not often we get to see the Duchess of Cambridge wearing a tiara, but occasions such as State Visits and the Queen’s annual Diplomatic Reception call for it.Before marrying into the royal family in 2011, we never saw Kate wearing a tiara in public, and this is all down to etiquette.Grant Harrold, also known as The Royal Butler, explained that tiaras can only be worn after 6pm and are typically reserved for married women.Grant tells Yahoo UK: “For married ladies, it was a sign of status and would show you were taken and not looking for a husband.“For the gentleman, it was a clear sign not to make advances toward the lady in question.”The Queen has a vast collection of jewels in the royal vaults, passed down to her from the Queen Mother and her grandmother Queen Mary.She regularly loans pieces out to younger members of the Royal Family. Kate wore her first tiara on her wedding day on April 29, 2011 – the Cartier Halo.Since then, she has also worn two other headpieces from the Queen’s collection, including the Lotus Flower and the Lover’s Knot.Kate was seen in a tiara for the ninth time at the Queen’s annual Diplomatic Reception on 4 December 2018.And it’s not just crowns, the Duchess has also borrowed earrings, bracelets, necklaces and brooches from Her Majesty.Follow us on Instagram and Facebook for non-stop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed, every day.
