Royal family and fashion expert Miranda Holder has spoken out about Kate, Princess of Wales’ latest tiara moment.
Princess Kate attended a glamorous diplomatic reception at Buckingham Palace hosted by King Charles.
She looked beautiful in a Jenny Packham ‘Elodie’ gown, a long red dress worth £10,300.
The royals chose a lotus flower tiara to accessorize a stunning dress with a round neckline, long sleeves and floral motifs.
Kate has worn tiaras at other royal receptions before, but always opted for intricate hairstyles.

The exception was at her wedding in 2011, when Kate wore a curly half-up half-down hairstyle and secured the veil with a Cartier halo tiara.
On the occasion, she chose a long, straight tiara hairstyle for the legion’s reception at Buckingham Palace.
Fashion expert Miranda Holder said the tiara was “gorgeous,” but revealed that she “didn’t start living as a tiara.”
“It was actually a necklace given to the Queen Mother as a wedding gift by her husband, the future King George VI,” she explained.

One of the smaller crowns in the Royal Collection, this piece features an elegant design and diamond-encrusted lotus motif.
Princess Margaret received the tiara in 1959 and it became one of the “signature pieces” in her collection.
“After her death, there was a lot of speculation about what happened to the piece until we saw Kate dressed beautifully in 2013.
