Reminding the world that she has access to the Queen of England's jewels, Kate Middleton donned a sparkling diamond tiara to an event at Buckingham Palace yesterday.
The crown, called the Lotus Flower Tiara or the Papyrus Tiara, was originally given to the Queen Mother by her husband George VI, and was made from a necklace she had received as a wedding gift.
Kate paired the shimmering piece with diamond chandelier earrings borrowed from the Queen and a high-neck, lace Alexander McQueen dress.
Oh, to be a duchess!
