Did Diana's sisters where the tiara on their wedding day? I don't think so.
Might be a silly question but on Louis? Do men usually wear tiaras? Or did you mean his spouse/future spouse? I can't stop laughing at the thought of a guy in a tiara. But I'd assume the daughters of the earl would be allowed to wear it for their wedding, like Diana and her sisters were. But I'd assume it usually is worn by the Earl's wife.

Isn't Earl Spencer engaged to be married (again, theslimeball)? I'd assume we'll see it on his unfortunate bride to be? (poor woman, though it is a lovely tiara)

Yes as the spouse of the heir to the Earl. Men don't wear tiaras (correct me if I'm wrong but I never saw a man wear one) so it isn't surprising the heir's wife would.

I hope Kate gets a tiara of her own. Perhaps a simpler more streamlined one. I see something delicate. Something along the lines of the one the Norwegian royals gave to Mette Marit and the Moonlight tiara CP Mary of Denmark wears.

I am thinking delicate leaves and berries of pearls and diamonds.

Hmmm you are onto something. Could you imagine the pearls removed and replaced with graduated pear-shaped diamonds or sapphires. Sparkly!

'

Louis is the Current Earl's son and heir, hence the title Viscount Althrop. And yes, Louis's future wife, his sisters and his younger brother's wife, would have a better chance of wearing the Spencer tiara on their weddings than Catherine.

As previously mentioned the last (or one of them anyway) Countess Spencer (Victoria Lockwood) wore it on her wedding day. Haven't seen a wedding picture of Caroline Freud.

I have not seen the Lover's knot with anything other than pearls (which doesn't necessarily mean it can't be done.) Perhaps you are thinking of the Vladimir tiara which can have either pearls or emeralds.

perhaps it would be possible to replace the diamonds on the spkies with pearl spkies like it looked when it was first made for Queen Mary.

My reservation for Catherine wearing any tiara with pearls comes down to personal prejudice. I find pearls on younger women rather, nouveau riche. Pearls should come with time but not so soon. She's not even 30 (though not far off..haha).

I think pearl earrings are fine and are quite elegant, but that's it for a woman her age.

Diamonds are the way to go, and other coloured gems. Sapphires would look nice on Catherine. Emeralds too. I do hope however that her tiara is made up solely of diamonds. That's why I'd like to see her in the diamond fringe. She would do it justice as long as she wears her hair up.

Perhaps she'll wear a lighter tiara rather than a heavier one, simply because it'll be a long day and she's not used to the weight of a tiara.

That would be really pretty, I agree.

I think that the only time a man wears head-jewelery is when a peer wears his coronet at a coronation. They put on the coronet after the monarch is crowned, as far as I know.

I think she should wear a lighter tiara as well. As much as I like the Lover's Knot tiara it is big and would probably weigh a ton with the veil added on to it.

It's probably already included in her Princess-in-training timetable... "Tuesdays and Thursdays, 10am sharp: hairdresser will be present; tiara will be delivered by Security. It is to be worn continuously around the house for the full hour and then returned to the designated Security officer. The period is to be increased by 15 minutes per week..."

No, no, Warren, that's 15 minutes a day! And one hell of a long day it's going to be!

Geoffrey Munn's Book: A History of Splendor

Since this book is referred to so often by tiara cognoscenti, I found several copies available on amazon this morning. A bit pricey, but not terribly out of sight for passionistas like me.

Diana did indeed wears the Cambridge emerald choker on several occasions, most famously as a head band on a tour of Australia ( I think).

I don't know how "likely" it is, but my vote easily goes to the Hanover Fringe; not only is it one of the most beautiful tiaras (in my humble opinion), but I could see it easily looking fresh and modern with a more streamlined, minimalist dress, which is probably the direction Kate will go in. Greek Key is quite beautiful as well, though I think a royal wedding requires something a tad more opulent.

Honestly speaking - I am hoping for something hidden in the vaults which we haven't seen for ages. This would be something....
