Middleton has actually worn the beloved tiara three times before, for the Spanish state visit in 2017, the annual diplomatic reception in 2016 and for the same event in 2015.

"These visits, both outward and incoming, play an integral role in strengthening Britain's relationships with countries across the world", the royal family said in a statement its Instagram account.

On Tuesday, Middleton wore the famous Tiara while attending the state dinner at Buckingham Palace, reported The Hollywood Reporter.

The jewellery was so stunning it nearly outshone her Alexander McQueen dress, an icy blue-grey taffeta ball gown with a dropped waist falling to a full skirt with a slight train swirling around her feet.

Eagle-eyed royal fans also noted the duchess has been given the Elizabeth II Family Order - a jewel-encased image of the Queen on a chartreuse yellow ribbon which royal women wear pinned to their left shoulder.

She also wore it in 1982 at a state banquet for Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands, staged at Hampton Court Palace.

Queen Maxima also debuted a dramatic crown all her own, the Stuart Tiara, which has captivated Dutch royal watchers.

She paired the dress with Princess Diana's Queen Mary's Lover's Knot tiara.

Spending only about half of her allocated 15 minutes in the market, Meghan chatted with one vendor and briefly greeted others in the crowd before security personnel whisked her away. The Duchess is now touring the country and is expected to visit New Zealand, Tonga and Fiji in the coming weeks with her husband, Prince Harry.

Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, unveils a plaque during a dedication of the Colo-i-Suva forest to the Queen's Commonwealth Canopy in Suva, Fiji, on Wednesday, Oct. 24, 2018.

Meghan has attracted plenty of attention for her simple-but-chic looks on the tour of her 16-day tour of Australia, New Zealand, Tonga and Fiji and even wore a piece from her pal Serena Williams' fashion line.
