Kate Middleton wears historic tiara once used by the Queen Mother – and it carries a hidden message

Kate Middleton wears historic tiara once used by the Queen Mother – and it carries a hidden message.


Being part of the royalty means attending plenty of events and living a lavish lifestyle. For the numerous occasions during which they represent the country, or any public event they are part of, royals are always seen wearing fabulous outfits.

The most accurate representation of this is the Princess of Wales, Kate Middleton. Known for her incredible personality and her brilliant style, Kate has become sort of a fashion icon.

One thing about her that many love is that her personal style is often casual and despite being a future Queen, she is often seen wearing clothes anyone can afford, such as piece from Zara.

Speaking to Vanity Fair, Bethan Holt described Kate’s style as effortless, something both Queen Elizabeth and Princess Diana symbolized, and that makes her relatable to the people.

“Part of the appeal of Kate – and the royal family was obviously very conscious of this – is that she’s not a blue-blooded princess. I just love that her surname is Middleton – you know, like middle class. It couldn’t be more perfect,” Holt said.

“Her wearing high-street is a way for her to consistently remind people of that, and to show that she is one of us,” she added.

“There’s no better way than saying, hey, you can buy the same Zara jeans I’m wearing right now for £30. She’s had a lot of those [relatable] experiences. She went on a gap year, and she was a girl about town just after university. We saw those pictures of her having a job, and I think lots of women can relate to those things. She’s talked about mum guilt as well, and about the box sets they watch and what takeaway they get.”

Holt, as well as other fashion experts, believe that Kate’s choice of outfits sends different messages to specific groups.

When Meghan and Harry were still residing in Britain and were attending royal events along the rest of the members of the Firm, Kate could be spotted wearing beige on several occasions. At the same time, late Queen Elizabeth and Meghan Markle wore outfits in the same color and according to royal experts this wasn’t a coincidence.

Royal expert Elizabeth Holmes believes it was a representation of togetherness despite the troublesome times the family was going through.

“To have them in the same shade, I took very much to be a sign of unity,” Holmes said. “And then of course, [The Queen] issued her statement of support to the Sussexes on January 13. Kate in brown on Monday morning was interesting, too, after she had been roped into the coverage.”

“Kate wore two pieces of brown: a khaki coat and a brown turtleneck—both of which were very visible in the shoulders-up shot of her driving the kids to school. It could be a coincidence but I think perhaps not!”

One time, while visiting medical colleges working in maternal healthcare alongside Princess Anne, Kate wore a cream dress with laces in the shape of pineapples.

As per The New York Times, “Pineapples have become a powerful symbol for women struggling with infertility. The fruit appears in the profile photos and Facebook feeds of women in online infertility communities.”

They continued, “They are most widely known as a symbol of hospitality and welcoming. But on social media, pineapples are inextricably tied to infertility. On Instagram, the hashtag #PineappleTribe aims to connect women going through IVF.”

The Royal Insta Blog also wrote about the princess’ choice of wearing a pineapple: “Displaying or wearing the pineapple can represent a non-verbal communication of an enormous life event in common or be an active out loud shout of support to raise awareness and funding for the issue of infertility,” it read, as quoted by Hello.

When she wears a particular color, it sometimes comes with a message. With her pink outfits, Kate tends to send the message that she’s fun.

“According to color psychology, which the royals do pay attention to, pink is fun, feminine, flirty and romantic,” fashion expert Samantha Harman said. “Kate wants the public to know that she’s fun and kind, and while some might already think that about her, the pink outfits are showing that she’s letting loose a little bit.”

Royal fashion expert Miranda Holder says, “Every style decision, especially what it comes to Kate’s wardrobe, is absolutely considered and deliberate down to the color she wears.

“[She is] just embracing this color, being fashionable at the moment and enjoying herself.”

Recently, Kate and William joined other royal family members at a state banquet at Buckingham Palace. The event, where the royals and 170 guests were properly dressed, was a part of the state visit for the President of the Republic of Korea, Yoon Suk Yeol, and First Lady Kim Keon Hee.

For the occasion, Kate wore the Strathmore Rose tiara, which the Queen Mother last wore in the 1930s. This unique piece of jewelry which hasn’t been worn for over eight decades appears to have a hidden message behind it.

Lauren Kiehna from the Court Jeweler told People magazine that by wearing this tiara Kate wanted to demonstrate her connection to late Queen Mother who was like a mother to King Charles once his mother took the throne.

“Kate has always signalled that she’d like to emulate the Queen Mother’s royal role and wearing her jewels is an important symbol of that continuity,” Kiehna said. “It’s fitting that Kate — likely with some assistance from King Charles — would choose to wear the tiara exactly a hundred years after the Queen Mother originally received it.”

Charles was extremely closed to the Queen Mother and she largely influenced his love for music, nature and arts. Speaking of this bond, Roberta Fiorito, co-host of the Royally Obsessed podcast, said, “It seems like he felt that the Queen and Prince Philip were a little bit absent from his childhood, but he did have someone who really indulged his artistic side in the Queen Mother. She was really supportive of all that and we know now how that played out: he recites Shakespeare on the fly and loves painting and watercolours. So I think that came from her.”

Kate has always been dressed impeccably and looks fabulous whatever she opts to wear.
