Photographers pictured Kate wearing the famous Lover’s Knot tiara at the Queen’s yearly Diplomatic Reception. One of the most well-known royal pieces, a number of other royal family members have worn the tiara in the past. Before the Duchess, the last person to wear it was William’s late mother Princess Diana.

Queen Mary’s grandmother Princess Augusta of Hesse-Kassel wore the original Lover’s Knot tiara. That piece was eventually auctioned off in May 1981. Indeed, a buyer paid close to $750,000 for it in Geneva. However, back in the 1910s, Queen Mary had a replica made for herself.
