Duchess Kate glitters in Princess Diana's tiara

JOHN STILLWELL via Getty Images Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, walks with Rear Admiral Ludger Brummelaar (R) as they attend a state banquet in honor of King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima of the Netherlands at Buckingham Palace in London on October 23.

Her decision to have a glass miniature is likely to be a reflection of William's passion for conservation work, which includes campaigning to end the ivory trade.

"When I was born, there were one million elephants roaming Africa".

The necklace was one of the Queen Mother's favourite pieces.

The duchess has worn the tiara on several other occasions, including diplomatic receptions at Buckingham Palace in 2015 and 2016, and a state banquet in honor of King Felipe and Queen Letizia of Spain 2017, according to Harper's Bazaar.

The Lover's Knot tiara and Queen Alexandra's wedding necklace were both on loan from the Queen.

The tiara was made by Royal jewellers Garrard in 1914 to Queen Mary's personal design, from pearls and diamonds already in her family's possession. And one thing that's come across in the past year or so of appearances is a newfound stature and confidence in her role, something Meghan doesn't have yet, for very obvious and understandable reasons.

It was given as a gift to Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother by Queen Mary.

The 37-year-old former "Suits" star also looked like she is ready to be a mom after she was snapped cradling her budding baby bump during the evening event she attended with her husband, Prince Harry.

King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands accompanied by Queen Maxima are staying at Buckingham Palace during their two day stay in the United Kingdom.

Kate was especially striking in her late mother-in-law's tiara, a diamonds-and-pearls bauble known as the Cambridge Lover's Knot tiara that Kate has worn before.

It's thought that the queen bestowed the order on Kate in December previous year.
