Kate Middleton wore a tiara once owned by Queen Elizabeth and a favorite of Princess Margaret at her first state banquet at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday and the princess was the talk of the event.

The Papyrus tiara, also known as the Lotus Flower, matched her diamond-drop earrings as she wore a red Jenny Packham dress that matched the color of the China flag, said the Daily Mail. The state dinner welcomed Chinese president Xi Jinping and wife Peng Liyuan to the country.

"While it may have been her first state dinner, Duchess Kate Middleton looked every bit the part," wrote Samantha Schnurr of E! News. "As it was her debut at such a traditionally high-profile affair, guests and fans alike were equally anxious to see what the Duchess of Cambridge would model upon her grand entrance – particularly when it came to the jewels.

"In addition to her premiere state dinner, it was also a moment for the mother of two to sport a tiara according to royal protocol." 

Middleton also wore a diamond tiara, a Cartier Halo tiara, when she got married to Prince William in April 2011.

She walked with Wang Huning of the Communist Party leader during the Royal Procession while Prince William waked with Caroline Welby, wife of the Archbishop of Canterbury, said the Daily Mail.

"(Middleton) was seated in the most prominent position for a female member of the royal family after the Queen – one the President's right while the monarch, as is custom, sat on Mr Xi's left." 

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge may have been able to share some of their influence with high-ranking China officials during the dinner, said the International Business Times.

"They are not pompous, they are not arrogant and William really comes across as quite humble and that's quite an unusual quality in a celebrity or high profile couple," Jo Barnett, a dating coach and relationship expert, told IBT.

Prince William and his wife will host Xi and Peng for a creative industry event at Lancaster House on Wednesday, celebrating existing and future cultural collaborations between the United Kingdom and China.
