The Duchess of Cambridge arrived at Buckingham Palace looking like the princess that she is.
Dressed in white and sparkling with diamonds, Kate Middleton arrived in a chauffeur driven Bentley for the annual Diplomatic Reception. It is the first time Kate has been seen in a tiara since her wedding to Prince William in 2011. This is also the first white tie event the royal couple has attended together.
The tiara belonged to the Queen Mother who gave it to her daughter, Princess Margaret. A spokesperson for the palace confirmed that Queen Elizabeth loaned the tiara to the Duchess for the reception.
The tiara was created by famed jewelers Garrand out of one of the Queen Mother's wedding presents from the future King George VI in 1923. It became known as the Lotus tiara.
It is an extremely delicately designed tiara which the Duchess showed off to perfection with up partially up swept hairstyle.
The annual reception is held to honor the 172 diplomatic missions in the United Kingdom. 1,500 guests gathered together at the reception to meet the royal family. Which included Prince William and Princess Kate who were not expected to attend until next year's Diplomatic Reception.
