Kate Middleton and Princess Diana never got to meet. A tragic car accident in Paris in 1997 stole Diana from the UK, the world and most importantly her two sons, William och Harry.
William and Kate married on April 29th, 2011, in a cermony the world will never forget!
Diana has left her mark, even to this day. Here is just the latest example of how Kate honors the memory of her mother-in-law.
It’s been 6 years since William and Kate said ‘I do’.
Since then, they have had two children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
On Tuesday evening, the royal couple attended Queen Elizabeth’s annual Diplomatic Reception. It was there that Kate was pictured wearing Diana’s favorite tiara, reports E! Online.
Kate also had a stunning up-do on the night.

Here’s a beautiful picture of Diana wearing the tiara in 1983.

This is the third time that Kate picked the tiara for a function – she has also worn it to events in 2016 and 2015.

The tiara was first given to Queen Mary around 1913/1914, and when she died in 1953 it was passed down to Elizabeth II. From 1981 it was worn by Diana.

But of course, Diana didn’t always wear royal jewels. More often than not she looked like this: the people’s princess who spent her time doing charity work around the world.
