We don't often see Kate wear a tiara – the exclusive accessories are saved only for state dinners and receptions at Buckingham Palace, and of course she wore a tiara at her royal wedding to William back in 2011. In fact, the mum-of-three has only worn a tiara a handful of times since joining the royal family, which includes just three different pieces in total.
The Duchess has a particular favourite when it comes to head candy – and that's the famous Lover's Knot tiara. Kate wore the piece at her most recent outing at Buckingham Palace, with her gorgeous Alexander McQueen gown. The tiara, which was originally made for the Queen Mother and later worn by Diana, Princess of Wales, features a beautiful pearl and diamond design.

In December 2018, Kate wore the Lover's Knot tiara to the Queen's annual Diplomatic Corps reception, teamed with a custom-made baby Jenny Packham gown with jewelled embellishments. The perfect winter look, we reckon!
Duchess Kate also wore the Lover's Knot tiara in October 2018, when she attended a lavish state banquet at Buckingham Palace to honour King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima during their visit to the UK. Kate wore a beautiful blue Alexander McQueen gown along with the stunning headpiece.
It was jewels, jewels, jewels for Kate in December 2017! The royal was photographed arriving at Buckingham Palace for a diplomatic dinner with her husband Prince William, and she looked elegant in a white gown with diamond necklace and her favourite Lover's Knot tiara again. This time, Kate teamed it with some matching pearl drop earrings.
A similar look to her previous tiara outing, here we see Kate in the exquisite Lover's Knot tiara again (she clearly loves it!) as she arrives at another state banquet at Buckingham Palace back in July 2017 to welcome King Felipe and Queen Letizia of Spain. We love her ruby and diamond necklace too.
Surprise, surprise, the Lover's Knot tiara again, but this time Kate wears the headpiece with an eye-catching red dress. The royal wore the jewelled heirloom for the Diplomatic Corps reception back in December 2016.
You've guessed it, it's the Lover's Knot! Yes, this is the very first time that Kate donned her now-trusty tiara, which she wore with a pretty lace gown and drop earrings to a diplomatic reception at Buckingham Palace in December 2015.
In October 2015, however, Kate stunned in a different piece - the Lotus Flower tiara - at a state banquet for the visit of the Chinese President. It originally belonged to the Queen Mother and was loaned to Kate for this occasion. She also wore it in 2013 for the Annual Diplomatic Reception.
We can't forget Kate's wedding tiara! The Duchess wore the exquisite Cartier Halo Tiara on her special day, which features over 800 diamonds. King George VI first commissioned Cartier to design the tiara for his wife, the Queen Mother in 1936, and it was then passed on to Queen Elizabeth on her 18th birthday.
