Not for Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, some tatty Happy New Year’s 2016 tiara. Not when she has (rather limited) access to some of the royal jewels. She caused a stir at the beginning of December when, for the first time, she wore the Cambridge Lover’s Knot tiara, closely associated with the late Diana, Princess of Wales as one of her favourite pieces of jewelry for formal occasions.
The occasion was the Queen’s annual Diplomat’s Reception. I think she should have gone with earrings closer to the lobe instead of the dangling pair she had on (they compete with the tiara in my view) but I get the impression she only has so much real bling from which to choose.
May your own new year be glittering, happy, healthy and prosperous, regardless of what headgear you choose to ring it in.
