I would love to see the Ladies of England Tiara on Kate for her wedding, if it still exists. It would be perfect for her, its diamonds & Pearls, it's not to small and not to large,and can be worn as a necklace. It's one of my favorites that I wish to see coming out of the vaults some time soon.

Nope, they are not the same! They are similar at the sides, but the centre piece is decidely different.
Queen Maud's tiara was a wedding present from her parents King Edward and Queen Alexandra in 1896. Queen Mary received her tiara as a wedding present from The Ladies of England in 1893.
And the similarity between the tiaras is not surprising when you take into account that they were made around the same time.

I must do more research, but this does not seem possible as the Ladies of England Tiara was given to Queen Mary by the Ladies of England. Sylistically they are similar but just from the listed history they cannot be one in the same. Maud's tiara was presented to her by Edward VII and Alexandra...

I thought your blog quite interesting but the best part was your link to the photo-shopped tiara's. The only one that seemed to scream elegance, restraint and, for that matter Kate, was the Strathmore Rose.

She looked like the "Princess Bride"! And, she could get away with not having her hair up.
Agreed, the Strathmore Rose is becoming my leading realistic choice.

The Strathmore must surely be a contender, but I think the Scroll, Teck and Fringe have a fair amount going for them as well.

If the Strathmore is in as bad shape as has been suggested (and the diamonds aren't as sparkly since they are cut the old-fashioned way), I think the Scroll is a real condender since it's been seen relatively recently (in the galacial Palace way of time moving) and is beautiful, sparkly, not associated with any one person (since it's been photographed on both Margaret and Anne in the past 50-60 years) and suitable for a young bride.

The ladies of England is completely different than Maud's pearl and diamond tiara. The center piece in Maud's tiara comes out but the L of E doesn't but the L of E can be worn as a necklace as seen here. Mary also wore it across the top of her dress here.
It came with matching earrings which are the ones Queen Elizabeth wears for her daytime events.

I was wondering the same thing! However, IF it is the Middletons or TRF, I would think B&S would take the item off the website.

Could the slight differences be due to the original version was stolen from Garrard's in 1993? I read (somewhere or other) Garrard's made a new one with pearls and diamonds that looked like the ones from the original tiara.

I don't think so. I read somewhere that luckily there was very good documentation of what the original tiara looked like, so that Garrard's could make a precise copy. Here is a comparision between Queen Maud with her tiara and Queen Mary with the LoE: http://inlinethumb17.webshots.com/92...600x600Q85.jpg
The centre of Queen Maud's tiara looks the same as today's version worn by Queen Sonja, and it looks very different from the LoE.
Also there is no possible explanation how the LoE could have ended up as a wedding gift for Queen Maud. Both tiaras were wedding presents and if Wikipedia is correct than Queen Maud married only 3 years after Queen Mary. But on the photo with the LoE Queen Mary already has grey hair, so that picture must have been taken years after Queen Maud received her own tiara at her wedding.

We must not forget that every rich Lady of that age wore tiaras, they were part of the fashion. Popular designs were copied and juwellers made variations of already existing designs. The best example is the fringe design which was so popular that it is is still very difficult to keep the various fringe tiaras apart.

The fact that Margaret and Anne wore it and the Queen Mother wore it when she was Duchess of York gives it more of a spare feel. So I think it would go to Harry's future wife to wear.

I believe that Kate will get the bigger pieces one day. Like the Queen's current favorite or the tiara with the loops in it. I believe it has a Russian name. Sorry I can't remember the names

As for the wedding I think the Fringe has some history to make it viable but not so much that it is associated with one person.

I firmly believe that when the Queen jiggy's into zombieworld, that the Girls of GB tiara will left for Kate, and that the other major pieces(kokoshnik, vladimir, etc,) will be for Camilla. As for the Cambridge Knot, though it wld make a lovely bridal tiara, I'm actually thinking that Harry's wife will be getting that tiara(on loan of course). You know, Wills gets the ring, Harry gets the tiara. I just have no idea now what Kate will wear on her wedding day, though the Fringe makes more and more sense to me. I really don't see the Strathmore being used as a regular tiara anymore, at least not for Kate.

I think you mean the Vladimir? The tiara which can be worn with either pearl or cabochon emerald drops?

Yes thank you! I was referring to the tiaras that Kate might get to wear in the future. Although Princejohnny25 made some good points about the tiaras Camilla might get.
I agree with you about Harry's future wife as well. Kate is likely to get to wear a lot of the Queen's tiaras so it would be nice if Harry's wife got the Cambridge piece. It is historical but given that it was most noticeably worn by Diana, it might stay with one of her children.

Most of the tiaras worn by The Queen are bequests from Queen Mary or were created using gems that were state gifts. These pieces are highly likely to have been designated by Queen Mary in her Will as belonging to the Crown to be worn in right of it, while The Queen has probably done the same in her Will with the newer creations.

I would predict these tiaras will remain with the Crown to be worn only by a Queen or Queen Consort.
