07 December 2017

Kate Middleton often likes to honour her late mother-in-law through the jewellery and the clothes that she wears.

Recently, Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton was spotted at the Queen's winter party wearing the Cambridge Lover's Knot tiara. It was originally made for Queen Mary in 1914, then passed down to Queen Elizabeth II, Princess Diana and now the Duchess of Cambridge.

(It's also sometimes referred to as Queen Mary's Lover's Knot.) The piece is inspired by a tiara owned by the monarch's grandmother, Princess Augusta of Hesse, who was also the Duchess of Cambridge.

Kate, 35, glowed with health and was dripping in diamonds, with her hair swept back to the nape of her neck, and she opted for a light blush and smokey eyes teamed with dusty pink lips for the royal event.
