Or HGD Stephanie! Stephanie wore 6 different tiaras for her first six tiara events! Even Maxima can't top that. I think Maxima already repeated a tiara for her fourth event.

Phantastic! A stunning look. What is known about those earrings? They are to die for.

The papyrus tiara is far to be an insignificant jewel. It's way more substantial thant the Cartier halo.

Was it ever worn by a queen consort or a consort to the heir apparent though ? That is my test for "significance".

PS: The Queen Mother wore the Papyrus, but only as Duchess of York, and then Princess Margaret had it as one of her personal tiaras.

I disagree! It was good enought for the former Duchess of York, aka Queen Mum. It was also good enough for Princess Margret. It's beautiful, and the Duchess of Cambridge can wear it with pride.

Who cares? We should all be happy she is there in a tiara! :-)

She looks fabulous! Thanks goodness her hair is up! Great height to the tiara... Much better than that little Halo tiara. JMHO

well, so far kate isn't disappointing - she looks her usual poised self. i like the papyrus tiara - it's beautiful and delicate. maybe kate prefers to wait longer in her role to use something different and maybe more exotic. as much as i would like it, i think it wouldn't look good if she started using all the tiaras available out there, using some associated to other royals or digging out for some less known tiaras. she would be accused immediately of 'stealing the show' and of being a gold digger, so i think this choice is appropriate.

mme peng is looking great in that tailored white suit. what i found strange is that their gift to the queen was, among other things, some CDs of mme peng's music - i think that's slightly egocentric and inappropriate in my opinion but hey... (using a state visit to show off your previous life as a singer? really?)

i can't wait to see more pictures of the state dinner and what will happen tomorrow!

Based on the video from Telegraph, the Chinese First lady looked stunning. Catherine's, The Duchess of Cambridge, red dress was all right. I liked the delicate tiara. A Chinese lady, who walked with Prince William, had a much better red dress. Mrs Cameron's dress was noisy and odd.

The state banquet is live on BBC News Channel and Sky News. I know some of you complain of the lack of live images from event like this, but it's the media that normally don't bother to show it (if the guest isn't from the US or China.)

And both The Queen and Kate looks fabulous.

Kate looks beautiful and the red dress is fabulous. I love that she's wearing the Lotus...I much prefer it to the Halo.

Looks like no RFO.

first pictures emerging in twitter - kate looking great in a red, flowing dress.

https://twitter.com/hashtag/ChinaStateVisit?src=hash

very appropriate choice of colour, but a shame she isn't wearing a family order.

The procession was just in ! Catherine is seated next to President Xi, but hidden behind a chandelier though. I am not so keen on her red dress. A frail Queen Elizabeth is speaking now.

PS: She is not frail while speaking, but looked frail when she was coming in. She just explicitly mentioned Prince William's recent trip to China.

Kate is wearing the heck out of that tiara on Sky News right now!

I hadn't thought much of it before now but it's just wonderful against her dark hair. A great shape and size for her!

Well, based on what I can see from the screen caps, Kate looks fabulous - I love the tiara and the dress.

Could also see Princess Anne bet she was seated in the on the long side of the tablesin the middle and therefore could only be seen from the back when walking in.

President Xi is speaking now. Unfortunately no translation is available in the live stream.

PS: They've just shown Edward and Samantha Cameron. Also the Duke of Kent and Alexandra.

Kate must wear a tiara every day from now I think. It looks so AWESOME on her. She looks like a princess for 200% now!

Perhaps she will have the Royal Family Order for her 5th wedding anniversary or so. IMO, she should have received it already...
