Duchess Wears Crown for First Time Since Wedding

For the first time since her wedding, the Duchess of Cambridge donned a tiara at tonight’s Diplomatic Reception at Buckingham Palace. Senior royals including the Queen and Prince Charles were on hand along with the Cambridges to greet representatives from 172 foreign missions currently accredited to the Court of St. James’s in London.

The Queen loaned the tiara to the Duchess for the state occasion; the Papyrus Tiara was once owned by the Queen Mother and most recently by the Queen’s sister, Princess Margaret.

Too bad no official photos were released from the event but rumors are that the Duchess is wearing one of her favorite brands, Alexander McQueen.
