We fully expected to see Kate wearing the Papyrus Tiara for tonight's reception. This tiara needs no introduction, as it was the signature tiara of the late Diana, Princess of Wales.

The tiara passed to Queen Elizabeth II, who wore it on some occasions in the early 1950's.

In 1981, the day before Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer got married, Queen Elizabeth II gave Diana a red leather box, inside which lay the tiara.

Diana famously wore it many times, including to a banquet in New Zealand in 1983.
