As the Duchess Of Cambridge, Kate Middleton's official duties require her to look her best all the time. That means Kate has to have one major closet filled with the finest dresses and gowns. But just because Kate is a princess doesn't mean she has enough jewels to dazzle the crowds at the events she attends. Thank goodness she has access to the family jewels -- the Queen's diamonds, that is. Take a look at all the dazzling diamonds and jewels Kate wore on loan. (Must be nice.)

We aren't jealous (okay, maybe we're a little jealous) -- getting to wear the royal jewels is part and parcel of being the possible future queen! It all began with Kate's royal tiara, the crowning jewel to her beautiful wedding grown that we are still talking about. But the longer that Kate has been part of the royal family, the more and more we see royal diamonds peeping out of jacket sleeves and dangling from Kate's earlobes. And while we understand that Kate should be wearing the best and most precious bling (she is going to press events and performing her royal duties, after all), we can't help it, we're totally envious! This girl is truly lucky to have such an amazing jewelry closet to borrow from. Take a look at our favorite looks and try not to drool over these royal baubles!
