This whole look made me so happy, and I love the lotus tiara. The one thing I did notice is the base of the tiara is visible- her hairdresser may need to pop over to Sweden to get a tiara hair lesson :)

Yes couldn't agree more all that was missing was a Royal Order but other than that the Duchess looked radiant and wonderful to see the Lotus Flower Tiara again.

And two very noticeable diamond bracelets! Oh happy days.

Very happy about the tiara and diamond bracelets. Just as disappointed about the hair, trip to Sweden is necessary!

Her jewels were stunning. Nice personal loan from The Queen.

Bracelets from the Queen Mum and The DOE's wedding bracelet gift to Her Majesty. From Her Majesty's Jewel Vault

That loan of the second bracelet is especially emotionally significant IMHO.

The RFO is made of ivory. Given William's public stance on the issue she will probably never wear one by her own choosing. When William becomes King he can change the material they are made from.

Charles would probably change the material first for his. Maybe a porcelain base, given the British history with porcelain?

And just speculating... The queen may well be aware of the potential for Kate and William to be called on that in the press and it may have been discussed. Perhaps she showed her approval of and relationship with Kate through other means this evening: the very significant loan of her wedding bracelet.

I guess those ridiculous rumors that QE2 doesn't like the D of C should be put to rest. Wedding earnings are pretty special.

I was surprised she wasn't wearing the RFO and admittedly disappointed. The ivory stance is completely understandable at this occasion. I did take comfort in the fact that HM loaned to Catherine a very personal piece of jewelry her wedding bracelet from Prince Philip.

Does she own the art deco bracelet on her right arm? Is that the PoW's gift?

The bracelets are the Queen's. The Art Deco one is a wedding present from Philip and the other was Queen Mary's.

If the Queen really wanted the Duchess to wear one she would change the material if that was an issue. The Duchess belongs to another generation than the rest of the family that has received the order. Her time will come.

Couldn't the RFO order be recycled from a previous wearer? I would imagine that Queen Mum's RFO from QEII would have gone back to the vaults. Would William or Harry have Princess Diana's RFO from QEII?

I think the Orders are recycled. Most likely Sophie and Camilla have received recycled Orders. Catherine's order will probably be a recycled one as well. Her's is coming probably within the new year. It's not far off given the amount of time she's been a high ranking serving royal.
