She also wore white gloves and carried a gold handbag.

Kate wore a shimmering Jenny Packham gown and the diamond and pearl-encrusted Cambridge Lover’s Knot tiara which she has worn before.

This headpiece was made in 1914 and given to William’s late mother Diana by the Queen as a wedding gift in 1981.
