Kate Middleton wears tiara made famous by Diana and the Queen Mother’s earrings

KATE MIDDLETON, 37, wore a tiara made famous by Diana and the Queen Mother’s earrings to dine with Donald Trump, 72, at Buckingham Palace tonight for the state dinner.

Kate Middleton’s tiara for Donald Trump’s state dinner tonight is the Princess Diana’s Cambridge Lover’s Knot tiara.

The piece belongs to the Queen, but has been loaned by Kate many times.

It was made by Garrards in 1914 for Queen Mary who designed it and left it in her will to her Majesty, The Queen. It is estimated to be worth between 1 and 2 million.

The very heavy piece went back into The Queen’s collection after Diana died in 1997.

Kate Middleton has worn these earrings on numerous occasions too, perhaps because they match her engagement ring.

However, the gems used to belong to the Queen Mother.

They have a large sapphires surrounded by diamonds. There is also a fringe of diamonds and small sapphires hanging below.

It is thought that the Queen would have inherited these gems when her mother died in 2002.
