Yesterday, King Felipe and Queen Letizia of Spain arrived in the U.K. for their state visit, which had been rescheduled due to June 8's general election.
Per tradition, the royal family hosts a white tie state dinner for each visiting head of state during their official visit; last night was Prince Harry's first, since he'll be taking on more responsibilities once his grandfather, Prince Philip, retires in the fall.
Also in attendance were the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Catherine wore a bell-sleeve dusty rose Marchesa gown with Queen Mary's Lover's Knot Tiara, not be confused with the Cambridge Lover's Knot tiara, which is owned by a German family, according to royal bauble site, The Court Jeweller.
Catherine rounded out the look with the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth v-shaped bandeau diamond and ruby necklace, a wedding gift to the current queen by her parents.
Letizia wore jewelry from the Spanish royal family's collection, including a tiara nicknamed, "La Buena."
The Queen selected the Brazilian Aquamarine Parure for the dinner which -- according to The Court Jeweller's editor, Ella Kay -- was a coronation gift to Her Majesty from the people of Brazil. Knowing that there's always a bit of history behind royal jewelry, I asked The Court Jeweller to elaborate on this stunning suite, which consists of a tiara, necklace, earrings and a bracelet.
