I don't think she has to wear anything. I think she choses to, because it means a great deal to Diana's son and perhaps to her. This I don't know. But Kate is powerful enough to wear what she wants. They don't have to beg pennies. And whether you like Diana or not, it is her sons that wish to carry on their mother's legacy.

If I had my MIL's jewelry I'd be honored to wear it....I like the is history and sentiment that comes with wearing family pieces. I have a couple of 100 (or more) year old rings from a great aunt that came down thru my mother. One of them I never take off, once the other is repaired it will be never taken off either...and passed down to my children.

Personally I think it's nice that Kate is able to wear Diana's personal jewelry (I think this is only the second time we've seen known pieces worn). If I am still alive I will think it very sweet if Charlotte wears it or George's wife wears it.

Quite like to see Catherine wear the full diamo5d and emerald demi parure, some of which we saw her wear in NY a few years ago.

If it still exists, I would love to see her in the Greville Emerald Tiara. It would look lovely with her green eyes.

I'm really curious, if this tiara still exists. It's hard to believe that it would have stayed in the vaults for such a long time. But I agree that it would look lovely on the Duchess.

There are many tiaras and other jewels in the vaults that haven’t seen the light of day in decades. I think some pieces may be be in need of repair, polished or modernized.

If it still exists, I would actually love to see it on Meghan instead. Especially if rumors are true about an emerald ring. It would be like Sophie when she was given the five aquamarine, given an older tiara but not a hugely historical one.

Kate IMO will stick with the lovers knott until she is queen. May see the halo come out as well. I do hope we see the lotus return either on her or on Meghan. Its a beautiful tiara and I don't want it disappearing in the vaults.

I’m still waiting for her to dust off the Teck Crescent Tiara. She or even Meghan can wear, but just wear it.

Not sure we will see either of those for a long long time if ever in our lifetime.

There has to be hope. Either the Strathmore Rose Tiara or the Teck Crescent Tiara could be worn by Catherine at a state banquet.

Maybe during Charles' reign if he implements different "rules" than his mother. My observation is that the Queen allows switching, but once the switch has happened then the royal is stuck with that tiara until the next switch, and I don't see Catherine switching away from the Lovers Knot tiara.

I presume that Prince William is very happy to see Duchess Catherine wearing the tiara that his mom wore so often. It looks heavy to wear. I don't know which tiara would look best on Duchess Catherine.

Diana reportedly complained that not only was the Lovers' Knot tiara heavy but that it was noisy as the pearls clanged and knocked against their supports. It was the major reason she preferred her family tiara instead for most functions.

Yes due to weight (never heard the sound part but considering the design it is believable) she didn't like wearing it. Other then for portraits, she didn't wear it often. Her brother allowed her to continue to wear the Spencer tiara which was much lighter and more comfortable.
