Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge was slammed on social media for her evening gown during a state banquet at Buckingham Palace on October 23, 2018. According to Majesty magazine, this change in materials was done intentionally as a vouch of support for Prince William's campaign to ban ivory.

It was one of the Queen Mother's favourite pieces, with the royal photographed wearing it on numerous occasions.

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. Her soon to be mother-in-law, Queen Victoria, was still in mourning for her beloved husband, Prince Albert, who had died in December 1861.

Diana also wore the tiara in 1985 on an official visit to Washington with Prince Charles.

On Tuesday, the Duchess of Cambridge attended a state banquet at Buckingham Palace wearing a blue mermaid-style gown by Alexander McQueen. It passed through generations of royal women to the Queen Mother who, on her death in 2002, left it to the Queen.

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.

Kate finished the look with the diamond and pearl Cambridge Lover's Knot tiara owned by Princess Diana, which she also wore to the Chinese state banquet in 2015 and the Spanish state banquet previous year.

It was also seen on Kate at last year's Diplomatic Reception.
