Princess Catherine completed her bridal-inspired look with other meaningful accents, reports People. The King wore Queen Mary's Lover's Knot tiara (another nuptial connection!), which dates to the 1910s. The pearl and diamond accessory was one of Princess Diana's most popular headpieces.
The king also wore earrings from Princess Diana's personal collection and one of Queen Elizabeth's bracelets. As for the finishing touch? Kate added the Royal Family Order and the Star and Sash of the Dame Grand Cross of the Royal Victorian Order - an honor bestowed on her by the late Queen.
