The British Royal Family rolled out the red carpet tonight for President Donald Trump and First Lady Melanie Trump who are on a State visit to the United Kingdom.
Queen Elizabeth II hosted a state banquet at Buckingham Palace in honour of Mr and Mrs Trump, and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge partook in the evening along with many other members of the Royal family.
This was Kate's fourth state banquet and tonight she wore a striking white gown by Alexander McQueen. The bespoke ruffled lace dress features a sweetheart neckline and cap sleeves.
Kate proudly wore the Royal Victorian Order sash and badge for the first time. You may recall The Duchess of Cambridge was appointed Dame Grand Cross of the Royal Victorian Order (GCVO) in April. Awards in the Royal Victorian Order are made personally by The Queen for services to the Sovereign.
The order is also represented by a Maltese Cross, which you'll notice on Kate's sash dangling at her hip.
Kate affixed the upper portion of the sash to her dress with her acorn brooch, and on her left side was pinned a Royal Family Order of Queen Elizabeth II which the Duchess was awarded in 2017.
Kate donned the Queen Mary Lover's Knot tiara, and once the signature diadem of the late Princess of Wales.
Kate teamed the tiara with the Queen Mother’s sapphire and diamond fringe earrings.
We first saw them at the 100 Women in Hedge Funds Dinner in 2015. Below, we see them on the Queen Mother.
And finally, Kate carried her white Alexander McQueen butterfly box clutch and wore a four-stranded pearl bracelet we have not seen before.
It is suggested it could be a piece from Princess Diana's collection.
