She completed the gorgeous look with the pearl-and-diamond crusted Lover’s Knot Tiara, once owned and said to be a favorite of the late Princess Diana, along with a diamond and pearl necklace.
In addition, her gown was adorned with a yellow badge that had a portrait of the queen. According to Town and Country, it symbolizes that the Duchess has “been given the Royal Family Order.”
