Nothing says “princess” like a diamond-encrusted tiara, something that the Princess of Wales demonstrated at a recent royal banquet.

As People reports, Princess Catherine attended Tuesday night’s state banquet at Buckingham Palace adorned with her favourite tiara, Queen Mary’s Lover’s Knot tiara. She looked elegant in a Jenny Packham cape-sleeves gown with embellished shoulder.

According to People, this marks the first time she’s worn a tiara in three years — and the first time since becoming Princess of Wales. This tiara is reportedly a century old – one of the oldest royal jewels. According to The Court Jeweller, Queen Mary had commissioned the tiara from Garrard, and it was made using a tiara from her own jewelry collection.
