It's good to see her embracing her role as a senior royal and wearing the family jewels. I think it just took her some time to get used to the idea that it's now her place to wear these things. Crown Princess Mary of Denmark said in an interview that it took her some time to get used to it all as well.

There is only going to be drive by car shots so not a lot of the dress is going to be seen.

This tiara has always been of my favorites but I think this was a really bad idea. We will now be subjected to an overdose of comparisons between Kate and Diana that will be nauseating.

Yeah, but those were the departure pics.

It wasn't a bad idea for her to wear the tiara. The tiara was never Diana's to begin with. It's a family heirloom that was lent to Diana to wear. Like most of the family jewels, it's been passed down to another senior royal, Catherine. Princess Charlotte may end up wearing it in the future. The comparisons will always be there.

(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.
Yep, that's what I'm saying. I think that they dangle 'out' of the loops because the tiara is sitting at an angle and we only see it from the side. I think that this pic shows the pearls best.

It is really frustrating: something exceptional is happening in jewel watching, and the pics are awful.

Exactly what I was thinking also,The Cambridge Lover's Knot Tiara also really suits the Duchess!

Oh I didn't know that. So there is a hope for a photo from the other side.

Catherine looks just magnificent the Cambridge Tiara, just so perfect on her. I am thrilled that she is finally wearing some of the family jewels and we all get to enjoy seeing them again. I think she is wearing a white lace gown, just going by what the picture shows. I would love to see her in a full length picture with William beside her. They make one gorgeous couple.

I do have a question as to how some of these family heirloom tiaras are going to be worn in the future. So Kate has worn three tiaras now. Does this mean these are exclusively loaned out to her or will Harry's future wife also get to wear them?

is kate wearing a repeat dress? it looks like she reused the dress she wore in 2013 for the diplomatic reception, am i right?

has the lover's knot tiara been used ever since diana died?

^^^Good question Empress Merel. Is QEII going to follow the Dutch model and permit the ladies to choose from a certain collection or will she make permanent loans like she has in the past?

I'm so glad to see Kate wearing this tiara! It's always been one of my favorites, but I was afraid it might go unused for a generation or so due to the strong association with Diana (and the inevitable comparisons).

As usual, such a shame that we don't get proper pictures from events like this. There are so few occasions on which Kate wears a tiara, and even fewer from which we get decent photos. She looks lovely, though, from what I can see.

It's hard to know. It mostly seems like once someone starts wearing a tiara, they're the only one who wears it until it "passes" on to the next person.

But only time will tell. Perhaps, if Harry ever gets married, Harry's wife & Kate will switch off with the Halo or Lotus Flower.

I doubt Harry's wife will wear them. It's not like other royal families where tiaras are treated like a potluck. Here the tiaras usually get loaned to one person per generation. After Catherine they will probably be used by Charlotte or George's wife in a new generation.
