The tiara: It’s the quintessential, or rather, the crowning accessory for any proper princess, and at last night's state banquet, Kate Middleton donned the crème de la crème of royal headwear—Princess Diana’s coveted Cambridge Lover’s Knot tiara.

The diamond-and-pearl embellished head ornament is widely known as Princess Diana's most prized piece of jewelry and was a wedding gift (or it might have been on loan..) from her mother-in-law, Queen Elizabeth II. K Middy first donned the family heirloom at an event in 2015, but last night she blew our minds when she paired the epic headpiece with a blush-colored lace Marchesa gown and a diamond-and-ruby necklace on loan from Her Majesty the Queen. 

The banquet, held in honor of Spain’s visiting dignitaries King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia, took place at Buckingham Palace and as grand as it was, Duchess Kate was clearly the belle of the world ball.
