At her first state banquet since becoming queen, Queen Camilla paid tribute to the late Queen Elizabeth II. Camilla, the new Queen Consort, was seen wearing her first tiara on Tuesday at a state dinner at Buckingham Palace. Kate Middleton also went to her first banquet as Princess of Wales. She wore Princess Diana’s tiara, which made her shine.
After Queen Elizabeth died on September 8, her oldest son, Prince Charles, took the throne and became King Charles III of Britain. Several members of the royal family got new jobs after the wedding, including Prince William and Kate Middleton, who became the Prince and Princess of Wales. Queen Consort Camilla and Princess of Wales Kate Middleton recently went to their first event in their new roles as Queen Consort and Princess of Wales, respectively. It was a state banquet for South African President Cyril Ramaphosa.

At the event, the Queen Consort remembered her late mother-in-law by wearing the Belgian sapphire tiara that the late monarch had worn. Camilla wore a blue sash from the Order of the Garter and a star and sash from the Dame Grand Cross of the Royal Victorian Order with her matching sapphire dress. The Queen Consort’s jewels have been around since Queen Elizabeth’s wedding. In 1947, King George gave the tiara, necklace, and earrings to his daughter, who was then Princess Elizabeth.
The nod to Princess Diana by Kate Middleton
Kate Middleton is known for wearing clothes that honor Princess Diana, and at her first event as Princess of Wales, the state banquet, she did the same thing. The Lover’s Knot tiara, which Middleton was seen wearing, was said to be Princess Diana’s favorite. Princess of Wales honored South African President Cyril Ramaphosa with her husband, Prince William, King Charles III, Camilla Parker-Bowles, and other members of the royal family. Princess Diana wore the tiara that Kate is wearing when she was the Princess of Wales.
The state banquet was the first official state visit that King Charles III had at Buckingham Palace since he took the throne on September 8 after his mother died.
