The holidays are in full swing and just like us, the royal family is busy celebrating.
At this year’s Diplomatic Corps Reception, which took place last night in London, senior members of the family including The Queen, the Duchess of Cornwall, as well as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge gathered at Buckingham Palace to host more than 1,000 guests and dignitaries from around the world.
Kate’s pearl and diamond headpiece (the Lover’s Knot Tiara) once belonged to Princess Diana, and has become one of her favourites pieces to wear to official engagements since she first received it as a wedding gift.
In addition to being perfectly on-trend with a regal velvet finish, the 37-year-old royal’s McQueen gown featured a dramatic neckline that perfectly highlighted the diamond Nizam of Hyderabad necklace Kate was wearing, which was loaned to her by the Queen.
While we may not all be able to afford custom ballgowns and heritage diamond jewelry, we can still take plenty of inspiration from Kate’s fashion choices for our own holiday engagements.
Scroll through for a selection of affordable velvet looks that will have you feeling like the belle of the ball at your next holiday get-together.
