I think you're referring to the Queen Mary emerald choker. To my knowledge, the Princess of Wales never wore the Cambridge emeralds. They're in possession on QEII

The emerald choker of Diana is indeed part of the cambridge emeralds, just not from the parure that QE II wears.

I think it is unlikely that Catherine will wear a tiara on the forthcoming trip to Canada.

Of the ladies of the BRF, it is only the Queen that typically wears tiaras when abroad. Camilla has only worn a tiara once when abroad, whilst at the Commonwealth Heads of Government meetings in Uganda.

Diana wore one to the Whitehouse when she danced with John Travolta in the famous midnight blue velvet dress.

Past Canadian visits of both Sarah and Diana included state dinners where the tiaras came out. Wouldn't it make sense, then, that Catherine would also wear tiaras for state dinners?

During Diana's first visit in 1983, the tiaras came out 5 times:

Cambridge Lover's Knot tiara with cream gown in Ottawa
Cambridge Lover's Knot tiara with yellow gown
Spencer tiara with aqua gown in St. John, NB
Spencer Tiara with red gown in Edmonton
Cambridge Lover's Knot tiara with a bright pink dress in Ottawa. I have pictures of this in a book but cannot find any online. The same dress was worn in Australia (but with the Spencer tiara) also in 1983

I've never seen a picture of her wearing a tiara at that event, just the pearl and sapphire choker. Which tiara did she wear?

Confirming no tiara for Diana at the White House. Tiaras are worn when it is formal, this was a black tie event.

IMIO, tiara's are usually worn at "State banquets", which are typically held for visiting heads of state. Since Charles in not head of state, host nations have a banquet for him, but it is not a state banquet, and typically tiaras are not used. This is very much my view, but I also recognise that Diana did wear tiaras in Canada in the early 1980s.

Google Translate
Rather unfortunately, IMO the list in Hola / Hello has not really been thought thorugh and is just a random listing of tiaras. It includes tiaras that are in active use by HM currently (including the Girls of Great Britain & Northern Ireland tiara and the Grand Duchess Vladamir), and tiaras that other members of the BRF use (Greak Meander tiara used by Anne). It also has a number of pictures of the Spencer tiara that Diana used, but that really belongs to Earl Spencer, and not the BRF.

Thank you for your illumination. Having been a Congressional Page in my early years and briefly worked in the White House during the Reagan administration, I am well aware of White House protocol.

I really like the Strathmore Tiara, I think it is very elegant.

Not sure the sarcasm is really either appropriate, or constructive.

There was no scarcasm in my post. Just the facts, ma'am.

you were right. No tiara on that occasion at the Whitehouse. However, I did find a spoof on SNL of Diana and Charles at the Whitehouse and Madonna wore a tiara

I hope it's The Girls of Great Britain & Ireland Tiara

But given the fact this was a wedding present to HM by Queen Mary, it is doubtful. IBut I think it is a significant tiara to add to the majestic aura of the occasion and to Kate's statuesque beauty.

Ah but wouldn't that be sorta sweet- given to the granddaughter on her wedding and then HM gives it (lends) to her granddaughter in law :)
