More details about the stunning tiara worn by Kate Middleton
For those of you who are unaware, let us share with you, Queen Mary’s Lover’s Knot tiara was also one of the favorite pieces of jewelry of Kate’s mother-in-law, Princess Diana. As per a report by the Court Jeweller, the shiny sparkler is more than a century old.
It has been stated that the stunning tiara was commissioned from the jeweler Garrard by Queen Mary in either 1913 or 1914. It is a copy of a tiara that was owned by Mary’s grandmother, Princess Augusta of Hesse, the Duchess of Cambridge.
In the past, Kate Middleton has also worn earrings that previously belonged to Princess Diana and a bracelet from Queen Elizabeth’s jewelry box. She was recently snapped while wearing those earrings at the Remembrance Sunday service.
Kate was last seen wearing a tiara in the year 2019. At that time, she wore a tiara for the Diplomatic Corps reception in December 2019, an annual event for 1,000 guests including ambassadors, high commissioners, and government officials.
Back in the day, Middleton adorned the Lover’s Knot tiara for the event. She paired the stunning tiara with the Nizam of Hyderabad necklace.
