Duchess Of Cambridge Kate Middleton Looks Like Disney Princess In McQueen Gown

Kate Middleton attended a state banquet at Buckingham Palace last night with her husband Prince William while his brother Prince Harry and pregnant wife Meghan Markle are on a tour of Australia.

The brooch worn by Kate was made by glass, instead of ivory, to reflect Prince William's work on animal conservation.

'And at the current pace of illegal poaching, when Charlotte turns 25, the African elephant will be gone from the wild'.

The piece was originally made for Queen Mary, the Queen's grandmother, in 1914 by the House of Garrand, using pearls and diamonds belonging to her family.

Worn by the 36-year-old duchess a number of times previously, once in 2017 and on another occasion in 2016, the Cambridge "Lover's Knot" tiara has an extensive regal history, having capped the crowns of a long line of royals since 1818, including the beloved Princess Diana. It was one of her most important marital presents, coming from her groom himself, and she wore it on their wedding day at St. George's Chapel, Windsor.

From her thrice-blowdried hair, to her go-to rotation of designers, and trusted silhouettes, the mother-of-three even has her favourite looks recreated over and over again in different colours to suit.

In her will Queen Mary left the tiara to to the Queen who wore it frequently, including at an evening event in 1955.
