The Lover's Knot was a wedding gift to the groom's mother which returned to the Queen until William or Harry married, for use by a princess bride at that time. I thiink we will see the Lover's knot pretty quickly. Though I have a few others I would love to see have an airing too!

I think HM will see the dangers of Kate (or Harry's future wife) wearing the Lovers Knot and will offer something else which they can use until Charles becomes King. At this time Catherine will be established as a Princess before becoming Duchess of Cornwall &, eventually, Princess of Wales (yes shock horror she will become Pncss of Wales). At this point in the future people may have stopped comparing her to her mother in law and judge her for herself by the work she does.

Loved her earrings both yesterday and today but would have loved to see a sparkly brooch as well. I think that would have looked great against the bright red coat. Is it wrong to want to chant "more jewels, more jewels!"

It also has a number of pictures of the Spencer tiara that Diana used, but that really belongs to Earl Spencer, and not the BRF.
Agreed Muriel, the Hola article was a disaster. Showing pieces that are associated with Fergie, Anne, Sophie, Earl Spencer and Camilla is truly sloppy reporting. I guess they just wanted to dazzle the eyes and not do substantive work.

The Obama's are coming to the UK for a state visit in May. If William and Catherine attend the dinner I am sure she will be given/ loaned something appropriate.

Agreed, that is one of the reasons I chose it as the top of my list. It would be a grand gesture, but is probably not likely....

I supposed we could all chip in to buy it, and wear it on a rotating basis.

I searched to see if this had been asked before but didn't find it. Where is Victoria's Strawberry Leaf tiara, and is that a possibility? Thoughts?

I agree the Lover's Knot Tiara would look sensational on Catherine - may I ask why you think the Queen might "hand over" her fringe tiara (or one of them) to Catherine?

I think it comes from tradition. Alexandra, May of Teck and Diana all received a tiara(s) when they married into the "main line". Like the regents above Catherine will be the mother of the future monarch (if all goes well) so it would be a traditional overt sign of approval to give/lend her a tiara for life from the core collection. The Queen can do whatever she likes, loan, give or even commission something. We will wait and see how it turns out.

Perhaps "hand over" was the wrong term to use, but I meant that the Queen could lend Catherine the fringe tiara to wear at the wedding, an possibly, afterwards.

Correct me anyone if i am wrong, but Queen Viictoria's strawberry leaf tiara was given to her daughter Queen Ena and has since been lost.

It is my understanding that it passed to Victoria's daughter, Princess Beatrice and thence by descent to her son the Marquess of Clarisbrooke. According to this recent auction, it may have been dismanteled.

Somebody please correct me if I am wrong. But on the Lovers Knot Tiara aren't the pearls removable? If some other stone were hung it would look like a different tiara, but still carry the history.

The saphire and pearl tiara up for auction from the collection is quite nice, and suits her ring.

Well then William better get asking his Uncle, because the tiara belongs to him and his family. Diana and her sisters were permitted to wear it for their wedding, but it isn't something William can give her.
