The Princess of Wales wowed at the South Korean state banquet

Princess Kate looks spellbinding as she debuts Strathmore Rose tiara

At the state banquet in South Korea on Tuesday night, the Princess of Wales made her debut wearing a new tiara.

The late Queen Mother’s Strathmore Rose tiara was worn beautifully by Catherine, 41.

The floral headdress was a 1923 wedding present from her father, the Earl of Strathmore and Kinghorne, to Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, who would go on to become the Queen Mother. As was fashionable in the 1920s, she frequently wore the tiara across her forehead.

The Princess wore the jewels with a white Jenny Packham dress that had gold floral embroidery on it.

Catherine frequently looks to the British fashion designer for some of her most exquisite evening gowns, such as a shimmering gold sequin dress for the 2021 James Bond film.

In the end, though, the stunning tiara stole the show. Her brunette hair was pulled back from her face in a half-updo, revealing the diamond pendant earrings that belonged to the late Queen Elizabeth II.

The Princess’s makeup, as one might anticipate, was tasteful and accentuated her inherent beauty. The royal wore a pink lip and a sweep of blusher on top of a smokey eye.

On the first day of the state visit, the Princess of Wales looked stunning. With a large bow at the neckline and a billowing cape dress by Catherine Walker, Catherine looked every bit the future Queen as she stepped out.

The matching envelope clutch and ruby heels completed the look beautifully. Her earrings, which were drop-shaped diamond and sapphire pieces, were stunning, and her hair, styled in a balletic chignon, added to the glitz.

Prince William also had a dapper appearance. The Prince of Wales accessorised his elegant navy suit with a simple silk tie that matched his wife’s romantic red tones.

King Charles and Queen Camilla have welcomed Yoon Suk Yeol, the president of South Korea, to the UK for a three-day state visit.

Both a diplomatic agreement and trade negotiations are about to begin between the UK and South Korea.

Catherine has been dressing to impress lately on a number of occasions. She opened the Children in Need live show on BBC One last weekend, pulling off an unexpected television appearance.

Re-purposing her royal blue Lisou London ‘Betty Rainbow’ printed shirt, she was spotted wearing it with black belted pants—possibly even skinny jeans.

When the mother-of-three delivered her significant message, her hair was styled in her trademark bouncy waves. “Tonight is all about helping to support, champion, and empower all children to be the very best they can be, which is crucial for their future health and happiness,” said His Royal Highness. “Our relationships, surroundings, and experiences during the earliest years lay the foundations that shape the rest of our lives.”

The royal also dazzled when she used her amazing purple Emilia Wickstead pant suit for a different purpose during her keynote address at the Shaping Us National Symposium held last week at The Design Museum in London.
