The Duchess of Cambridge has only worn a tiara 11 times since joining the royal family in 2011
One of the highlights of the royal calendar is seeing people like the Queen and the Duchess of Cambridge wear tiaras.
Occasions that call for sparkling headgear are usually only reserved for State banquets, Her Majesty’s annual diplomatic reception, and the official opening of Parliament.
Sadly, it seems unlikely we’ll see Kate in a tiara this year. The Queen typically hosts the Diplomatic Corps reception at Buckingham Palace in December, but this has not been confirmed in the current climate.

The state visit to Japan could be postponed until spring 2022, but the palace has yet to confirm a date. TO HELLO! HQ, we are all hoping for a royal tiara moment next year.
