If we had better pictures or if the Cambridge's had arrived in a State car, we would be able to see if Catherine has received her Royal Family Order of Queen Elizabeth II.

I have to agree that the tiara looks spectacular against Kate's brunette hair.

this was such a happy surprise! for so many reasons. 1 - one of my favorite tiaras, 2 - Catherine is getting over her shyness of wearing substantial jewels (raid away!) 3 - a sentimental favorite.

looks to be a repeat on the dress from previous diplomatic reception .... no one cares - we got tiara love!!

As long as it stays ivory I hope she is never seen in it. It already puts all the other royal women in a bad light, I'd rather Catherine just avoid it.

Are those earrings the ones she's borrowed from QEII before?

I think they are. Same dress as the reception held in 2013 as well

It was finally sold in auction.

She is wearing the tiara with the pearls, they are just dangling a bit behind the tiara and are not that obvious to see.
Are you saying that 'weird' glow (flash) are the pearls sitting behind the diamonds?
(When I first saw the pictures, I thought they were photoshopped because of the strange 'glowing shadows' that are usually the diamonds.)

The pearls look much smaller and are not sitting inside the loop.

It could be because her head it tilted backward that the pearls have fallen out of view.

What a nice surprise!

Oh, this made my day! I've been saving my first post for just such an occasion. She looks so nice with her hair up, I really wish she'd wear it that way almost exclusively. From what I can see in these photos she looks very regal, IMO not something she pulls off very often.

I think she may have received it by now. It's a family memento that is usually worn at State Banquets, State Opening of Parliament and Diplomatic Corps Receptions.

Such negativity.

Yeah, you can't see if she's wearing the Order on her shoulder or not.

I think 20 Years is definitely long enough for this tiara to have not been seen. It did not belong to Diana so now it is time for someone else to wear it. It is a beautiful piece and should be worn . As for comparisons , Kate will be compared for as long as she lives that will never end.

You can see the pearls here better.

This tiara looks so much better on Kate then it ever did on Diana. That messy, short hair didn't do it justice then.

And why too early.. Diana has been dead for many years and this tiara hasn't been seen out in public for years too. Let it go already. This tiara never belonged to her and has been worn by others too. It's time for people to let the past go and move on.

it's too bad we didn't get a photo from the other side like we did in 2013. Then we could probably see.
