Of course, Kate always wears at least one item of jewellery inherited from Diana: her iconic sapphire engagement ring (which, did you know, was originally meant for Meghan?). But last night, for the Duchess' latest royal engagement at Buckingham Palace, she stepped out wearing another piece beloved by Princess Di: The Cambridge 爱r's Knot Tiara. While Diana might've worn her family's Spencer Tiara for her wedding to Princes Charles, she famously wore the 爱r's Knot on many occasions in her life, leading royal experts to believe it was one of her favourites.
For those unfamiliar with the neat headpiece, it's basically a giant feat of craftsmanship. Inherited from Queen Mary and passed down to Queen Elizabeth II before being loaned to Princess Diana as a wedding gift, the tiara features 19 oriental pearls which dangle from ornate bows, each topped with diamonds. In fact, the piece is so heavy from all the jewels that it's believed Diana said it made her head hurt. Oooft.
Naturally, Kate manages to make the tiara look light as a feather, teaming it with a floor-length black dress, with long sleeves and a plunging V-neck:
From the sounds of it, tilting her head like this must be a serious neck workout, but Kate makes it look like a piece of cake:
The night seems to have been a super blingy affair, with Kate also repping a hefty necklace and matching earrings (because, when it comes to jewels, the limit doesn't exist, right?).
Aaaand, because we will always love Princess Diana's style, here's she is wearing the same tiara in 1985:
