So I believe Kate only has the Lover's Knot although she'll probably have others once Charles succeeds.
I really like the Lotus tiara and would be very disappointed not to see it again. I know most of readers here prefer the lovers knot - so I might be minority but to me the Lotus is such a delicate and really lovely piece - I am disappointed by its underusage.
And the Cartier halo - is a nice piece, so would be interesting to see it once more. Most of the royal ladies wear their wedding tiaras when they are going to other weddings, but it seems the Cambridges are not invited to these events...

The Duchess is wearing the Oak leaf and Acorn brooch at the State banquet for President Trump.
(I didn't get the name right in a previous post.) It has 4 pearls set to look like Acorns.

I have to admit I would love to see the Halo Scroll nestled in a fabulous up do of Catherine's signature glossy dark curls. It really is a stunning tiara and seeing it against the dark brown hair instead of the bridal whiteout and with her matching wedding earrings would really look amazing..

You are right, it would be good to see Catherine use that tiara again at some time, though I very much doubt that will be the case.

I agree totally. By the time she left the church her hair was a mess IMO, the soft waves had completely fallen away and it was like rats tails. I have a feeling that she would go for an updo if she was getting married nowadays but in those days she couldn't see past wearing her hair down all the time.

With an updo the tiara would have a bit of an darker background instead of the white veil and it would have stand out more. She only started to experiment with her hair a few years after she got married as in the first years after her marriage she always wore it loose with an half-updo.

Archie's Christening
According to something I just read elsewhere, Catherine is wearing the same earrings that Diana wore to Harry's Christening. Do people here agree? (they look the same to me)

They are Diana’s earrings. Catherine has worn them 11 times before. Can’t tell if they’re the ones Diana wore to Harry’s christening though. Do look the same

Yes, they are Diana's Collingwood diamond and pearl drop earrings.

I would love her to use the Halo again- but for some reason it seems to be a one off.
However, I am sure there are unused tiaras in the vault (we have ssen that ) which she could use as all diamond or potentially diamond and sapphire....
