Meghan Markle Dazzles In Glamorous Blue Dress With A Cape

Kate wore a blue Alexander McQueen gown and an iconic royal heirloom: the Cambridge Lover's Knot tiara, which once belonged to Princess Diana.

Over the past three months, the world has seen a dazzling array of Britain's crown jewels, from Meghan Markle's Queen Mary's Diamond Bandeau to Princess Eugenie's Greville Emerald Kokoshnik tiara.

The Duke and Duchess were there to attend a state banquet at Buckingham Palace to welcome the King and Queen of the Netherlands on Tuesday.

Kate wore the tiara previous year, along with a stunning ruby and diamond choker necklace. According to Town and Country magazine, the yellow badge indicates Kate has been given the Royal Family Order - and probably very recently, as she reportedly hasn't worn it in the past.

Donning a tiara for only the eighth time in her royal career, Kate chose to wear a favourite of Diana, Princess of Wales-the Cambridge Lover's Knot tiara.

The couple is scheduled to visit Tonga on Thursday before returning to Sydney on Friday night for the final days of the Invictus Games, Harry's brainchild and the focus of their tour. The Duchess of Cambridge also wore Diana's favorite Collingwood diamond and pearl drop earrings and a spectacular necklace borrowed from the Queen Elizabeth's collection of pearls and diamonds.

"Onlookers say the Duchess "looked concerned, ' as she greeted large crowds and did not seem like her 'usual self", the newspaper adds.

The day also marked the maiden official state visit for King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima of the Netherlands to the United Kingdom.
