The Princess of Wales often wears a tiara for glitzy events like weddings and state banquets

Kate, Princess of Wales could wear a tiara when the President of the Republic of Korea visits London in November.

President Yoon Suk Yeol and his wife Kim Keon-Hee have accepted an invitation from King Charles to pay a state visit to the UK in later this year, Buckingham Palace have announced.

King Charles, 74, and Queen Camilla, 76, will therefore likely host a state banquet inside Buckingham Palace, the official residence of the British monarch.

Fans are excited that there may be an opportunity to see Princess Kate once again wearing a tiara for the special occasion.

Royal women can only wear tiaras for a handful of events, including weddings, coronations, and state banquets.

When royals like Queen Elizabeth II and Princess Margaret were in their youth, they would wear glitzy sparklers for film premieres and theatre appearances, which the current generation of royals tend not to do.

Queen Camilla did not wear a tiara for her recent state banquet in Paris, which some royal fans were expecting.

But Kate almost always wears a tiara during state visits, including the most recent state visit from the President of South Africa in 2022.

The princess looked divine wearing the Lover's Knot Tiara, which was often worn by her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana.

Kate paired this tiara with a white bejewelled cape dress designed by Jenny Packham.

Another recent occasion when Kate donned a tiara was last December during the Buckingham Palace Diplomatic Corps Reception.

The Princess of Wales wore the Queen Mother’s Lotus Flower Tiara, which she paired with another Jenny Packham design, this time a red festive dress.

The only other tiara Kate has worn during her 12 years as a working royal is the Cartier Halo Tiara - her wedding diadem.

It is unlikely that the princess will wear this sparkler again, in order to preserve its magical impact as her wedding tiara.

If Kate chooses not to wear the Lover's Knot Tiara or the Lotus Flower Tiara in November, she could wear another diadem belonging to the late Princess Diana.

One such jewel is the Spencer Tiara, which Diana wore for her wedding to marry then-Prince Charles in 1981.
