The mother of three shined in a baby blue Alexander McQueen satin gown and a jewel encrusted pearl necklace. She also wore pearl drop earrings that also belonged to Princess Di.

The 36-year-old's crown is over a 100 years old and has been with the Royal Family since 1914. Kate also sported the bling at diplomatic receptions in 2015 and 2017.

But the crown wasn't the only piece of bling shining at the dinner. Her necklace glittered on her neck and has quite a bit of history attached to it. The neckpiece dates back to 1863, when the future King Edward VII had it made as a wedding gift for Princess Alexandra of Denmark.
