Kate Middleton gave a subtle nod to Princess Diana of Wales at Queen Elizabeth II's winter party last night in London when she wore one of her favorite sparkling headpieces.

The pregnant royal and her husband, Prince William, left their son, Prince George, and daughter, Princess Charlotte, at home for the evening to attend a reception for diplomats hosted by the Queen. The royal accessory was a favorite of Princess Diana, who wore it several times throughout her reign.

Though her full outfit wasn't photographed, she appears to have worn a beaded white dress, diamond necklace and drop pearl earrings to accompany her late mother-in-law's precious jewels.

This is the first time Middleton has chosen this particular tiara.

Kate has worn the jewellery once before at the same event a year ago, which she attended wearing a red Jenny Packham gown.

The tiara has an even greater history though, reportedly being commissioned by Queen Mary in 1913.
