It’s time to put a tiara on! The Duchess of Cambridge dazzled the crowd, sparkling in breathtaking jewels, as she headed to a state banquet at Buckingham Palace.

The formal occasion marked the first time the mom-of-three wore a royal family order. It is a somewhat plain yellow brooch that was pinned down to Kate’s dress. Despite its simplicity, the royal family order is a prestigious honor. Many royal families around the world use them, but Queen Elizabeth II's has its own particular design and a special meaning.

The pin, which features a small portrait of the Queen, represents the honor bestowed only upon female family members and is given as a way to show gratitude for their service. However, it is not the pin that stole the show.

Questionable dress

For the occasion, Duchess Kate chose a blue gown by her favorite designer, Alexander McQueen. Even though she looked undoubtedly beautiful, many royal fans criticized the dress, saying it appeared to have come from the 80s.
