Kate Middleton steps out in white Jenny Packham dress, Cambridge tiara and Diana’s pearls

Kate Middleton and Prince William attended the state banquet being held in the President of South Africa, Cyril Ramaphosa’s honour. Kate, the Princess of Wales chose a beautiful white Jenny Packham gown with embellished shoulders and the Cambridge Lover’s Knot tiara for the occasion. 

The Princess of Wales’ dress is the Elspeth Gown by Jenny Packham, and it is currently available online for £4,303.09. It features a boat neckline and long open sleeves, with beaded detail across the shoulders. It is fitted and made from a stretch cape. The back features a key hole and it is from the designers bridal collection. 

The tiara was commissed for Queen Mary in 1913 from Britain’s House of Garrard. It consists of diamonds and a collection of 19 hanging pearls, all set in silver and gold. Later it was handed down to Queen Elizabeth who then gave it to her daughter-in-law, Princess Diana.

It was through Diana that Lover’s Knot became one of the most recognisable pieces of jewelry belonging to the British royal family. Allegedly, the piece was so heavy that she used to get headaches after wearing it. 

Upon her divorce from Prince Charles, the tiara was returned to Queen Elizabeth.

Kate didn’t wear the tiara for the first few years of her royal tenure. In December 2015 she wore it for the first time at the Diplomatic Reception, and since then it has become the Princess’ formal headwear of choice.
