Kate dons Diana tiara for state banquet

But the ensembles gave us a slight feeling of déjà vu - because Prince William and Kate Middleton wore nearly identical outfits when they visited the region back in 2012 on their Diamond Jubilee tour.

The miniature portrait, painted on glass, depicts the Queen as a young woman in evening dress wearing the ribbon and star of the Order of the Garter.

William, who is the patron of Tusk, previously warned: 'When I was born, there were one million elephants roaming Africa. "By the time my daughter Charlotte was born previous year [2015], the numbers of savannah elephants had crashed to just 350,000", William said in 2016, according to Elle UK.

The duchess has worn the tiara on several other occasions, including diplomatic receptions at Buckingham Palace in 2015 and 2016, and a state banquet in honor of King Felipe and Queen Letizia of Spain 2017, according to Harper's Bazaar.

Since Queen Mary died in 1953 the Cambridge Lover's Knot tiara has been handed down to Queen Elizabeth II who gifted it to Princess Diana when she Wednesday Prince Charles.

The tiara was made by Royal jewellers Garrard in 1914 to Queen Mary's personal design, from pearls and diamonds already in her family's possession.

Middleton was with her husband Prince William for a state dinner to welcome the King and Queen of the Netherlands.




Coupled with Princess Diana's Lover's Knot tiara, Middleton was wearing at least three tributes to her family in one look.

It was given as a gift to Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother by Queen Mary.

Diana also wore the tiara in 1985 on an official visit to Washington with Prince Charles.

The Duchess of Cambridge also wore Diana's favorite Collingwood diamond and pearl drop earrings and a spectacular necklace borrowed from the Queen Elizabeth's collection of pearls and diamonds.

The queen stunned in a white gown, the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara and the Cullinan III and IV Brooch while The Duchess of Cornwall wore her favorite Greville Tiara and a silver gown.

It's thought that the queen bestowed the order on Kate in December a year ago.
