Kate Middleton shines in Princess Diana's tiara

She switched up her tiara, this time wearing a different one belonging to the late Princess Diana. Unlike her mother-in-law Princess Diana, who was frequently seen dipping into the Queen's jewel box-especially the tiara section-Middleton has only stepped out in public with a tiara a mere three times prior to today.

Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip joined Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall, and Prince William and Kate Middleton at the Diplomatic Corps Reception held at Buckingham Palace on Thursday. To the Queen's right is William's father, Prince Charles, and Camilla, who followed the Queen's style lead with a white dress and her own diamond tiara.

OH lawmakers plan votes on abortion, concealed-guns bills
The state House approved the so-called "heartbeat bill" after it was added to another health bill by the state's Senate. Other states prohibit abortion after a certain time following conception - as soon as 20 weeks in some states.

For this year's annual diplomatic reception, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge gave a subtle nod to the People's Princess as they were dressed to the nines to welcome ambassadors from the United Kingdom's diplomatic communities to Buckingham Palace. She also wore the Royal Family Order, a diamond encrusted miniature portrait of the Queen which is given to senior female royals. Princess Diana, who's the mother of Middleton's husband and his brother Prince Harry, died the following year in a auto crash. Known for shopping her closet, she had worn the dress past year for the Chinese state banquet to welcome the country's President Xi Jinping and his wife Peng Liyuan.

All eyes were on Duchess Catherine, who opted for one of her favourite looks, a striking red Jenny Packham gown, which she first wore past year at her very first State Banquet. The Queen, Kate Middleton and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, wore sparkling tiaras and posed with their princes in a stunning new portrait!
