Cape Town – The royal family hosted the annual Diplomatic Reception on Thursday night but it was the Duchess of Cambridge who stole the spotlight.

Kate Middleton made an elegant entrance wearing a beautiful red Jenny Packham gown, the same one she wore to the China State dinner.

But more importantly she perfectly donned one of the most well-know frosted favourites in Princess Diana’s tiara collection - the Cambridge Lover’s Knot.

Taken on the same night, the royal family released a new family portrait that shows Kate standing alongside Prince William dressed in a blue sashe and knee-high socks with garters matched to his father and grandfather.

Queen Elizabeth and the Duchess of Cornwall both wore white gowns.
