The Princess of Wales appeared in public in the Queen Mother's tiara

On November 21, Prince William's wife Kate Middleton visited Buckingham Palace on the occasion of the South Korean president's arrival in Britain. At the dinner, the Princess of Wales was spotted wearing a rare piece of jewelry. Generations of royal family fans had never seen the jewelry before.

The pink Strathmore tiara that adorned Kate's hair was a wedding gift to Elizabeth I from her father in 1923, VOGUE writes. The diamond floral crown, which looks like a garland of wild flowers, was purchased from London jewelers Catchpole & Williams.

It can be worn in several ways - above the forehead, in the hair, or as five individual brooches. According to Sir Hugh Roberts' book The Queen's Diamonds, the tiara "reflects the naturalistic style of head jewelry that was popular in the mid-19th century."

After the Queen Mother's death in 2002, her daughter Elizabeth II inherited the tiara. However, the jewel remained in the royal vault for decades - reportedly, it had not been worn since the 1930s. Now, however, the rare diamond tiara has been given a new lease on life thanks to the Princess of Wales.
