Duchess Catherine is usually known for her modest dressing, love of coatdresses, and tendency to recycle outfits, but on Wednesday night, the Duchess let her hair down (metaphorically, of course, her hair was styled into a glamorous up do) and donned some jewels.
Finally, to the relief of some royal watchers.
The Duchess has only ever worn tiara on two occasions before, at her wedding, and at a diplomatic dinner from which there is only one photo, but on Wednesday the mum-of-two’s Princess sparkle was out in full, wearing the infamous ‘Lotus Flower tiara’, two enchanting diamond cuff bracelets and a beautiful red bespoke Jenny Packham dress.
Following her tiara outing, the Duchess joins a long list of royals who have dared to sparkle, including Crown Princess Mary, Sophie, Countess of Wessex, Princess Charlene, Princess Victoria, and, of course, the Queen herself.
To celebrate Catherine’s transition into the world of sparkle, we’ve compiled our absolute favourite royal sparkle moments, with tiaras, bracelets, necklaces, brooches and jewels galore!
