According to Wikipedia, great-grandchildren of the reigning monarch:


"Great-grandchildren - Lord "X" "Z" (until 1917, it was HH Prince "X" of "Y").
Except the eldest living son of the eldest son of the Prince of Wales, HRH Prince "X" of "Y", where Y is the territorial designation of his father's peerage (if he has any; if not, Wales) and Z being the last name of the great grandchild."

So, their eldest son would be HRH Prince X of Wales (or his given peerage); any other children would be The Lord/Lady X Windsor until Prince Charles becomes King.

Hope that helps.

Basic collection of jewels I would like to see Catherine receive:

1) A pearl and diamond choker
2) One of the many "light" diamond necklaces that HM has
3) A relatively light / simple diamond tiara
4) Some coloured demi-parures: emeralds, rubies or sapphires
5) In time (and probably after Catherine becomes the PoW), and as a secondary piece, possibly the Cambridge Lovers Knot
6) Some more contemperory light jewellery like the sapphire necklace she wore the day the engagement was announced

The Scroll Tiara is perfect for Catherine.

According to "The Queen's Jewels" (Leslie Field, 1987, pg 141) the tiara that you mention and link to was given by the Queen Mother to Princess Margaret. I consulted the catalogs of the auction of Princess Margaret's items and did not see that tiara as one that was auctioned by her children. This tiara is referred to, by Fields, as a "diamond fan leaf" and in the is illustrated in "The Queen's Jewels" as worn in the style of the day (1929) across the then Duchess of York's forehead.

Not sure who has that tiara now, and if it stayed with Margaret's children or perhaps was purchased back by the Queen. Perhaps someone with more knowledge knows.

Anyone else keen on seeing the Teck Rose and Crescent Tiara as a part of the wedding ensemble? It might even ease some international tensions a bit and reflect some sense of diversity... I dunno.

If this one (British Royal Jewels of the Past) still exists, I think it would be amazing as well.

I think it's called the lotus leaf tiara because of the motif. It belonged to Princess Margaret and was worn by the Viscountess Linley her wedding day.

Queen Victoria's Wheat Ear Brooches?

EmpressRouge: You are spot-on, and it would seem a bit strange to saddle a young lady with the same tiara worn by the bride of her husband's first cousin once removed. As a future consort she likely deserves a hand-me-down a bit with more prestige.

For a more modern look comprised of something quite ancient, what about a couple of Queen Victoria's Wheat Ear Brooches, that The Queen has worn before as hair slides/ornaments. I believe that those were originally commissioned by William IV fashioned from diamonds that had belonged to George III. That she is marrying the man who will likely one day be William V, that could be appropriate; and, opting for something more simple, rather than a more traditional tiara, could seem appropriate for a modern 'career gal.'

Queen Mary, King George & his sisters came together after Queen Alexandra's death in 1925 to divide her jewels. QM took all pieces that had been wedding gifts for the royal collection. As we know the necklace, brooch & earings are still in existance. QM had a healthy supply of jewels from her own wedding gifts and the crown jewels so it is highly likely that the Rundell is languishing in the vaults, possibly needing a refurb. It was over 40 years old when QA died and she wore it extensively so there would have been substantial "wear & tear". As QM had so many pieces of her own she may have just put it to one side.

I always thought that Sophie's wedding tiara was Prince Edwards idea. The pearl necklace was his design and not at all pretty. With Sophie's good taste, her heart must have sunk when she saw them both. And to have to wear them on her wedding day, poor Sophie.

Actually, I don't think it ever "belonged" to Princess Margaret. It was in her care and had been given to the Queen Mother by Queen Mary. My belief is that after PM's death it was returned to the vaults and may, in the future, be used by the Linley's. I think HM is well aware that her nephew would sell his soul for a few thousand pounds!

I have uploaded to this link Flickr: carlambbrady's Photostream all the tiaras I could possible think of Catherine Middleton might wear either for the wedding day or or when she becomess Princess of Wales.

I think that Camila will choose to wear, in the future, tiaras that are not too identified with Queen Elizabeth. I seriously doubt she will ever wear the Girls of Great Britain, the Vladimir, the Fringe or the Indian Ruby tiaras. Those ones, I think they will be worn by Catherine in due time.

I would like to see Catherine wearing the Strathmore or the Fringe tiara on her wedding day. The Strathmore because it is lovely and the Fringe because it would be a wonderful gesture from the Queen welcoming her into her family and royalty. I might be completely wrong, and Catherine could end up wearing the Scroll tiara.

The russian bandeau that princess Margaret is wearing is one of the nicest tiaras in the British collection IMO, I hope it is still around. I hope that Kate will wear it, but I don't think it is likely that it will be on her wedding day since most royal rides use diamonds (& pearls).

Wasn't the Nizam of H. tiara broken up?

Princess Margaret's family only sold one tiara, The Poltimore. But, I'm not sure what was specifically hers. Since Viscount Linley seemed to sell everything of any sentimental importance or significant value, I have always thought that certain pieces were on a lifetime loan. That would include the Persian Turquoise parue (I hope that it reverted back the The Queen) and the Lotus Flower tiara. There is a Snowdon tiara which we saw when Margaret's daughter was married, and Serena (Visountess Linley) wore the Lotus when she married. But, no turquoise for some time now. It would be nice if the Lotus re-appeared. I think it is a very lovely piece.

Perhaps the queen will re-introduce a tiara for Catherine that we haven't seen before. There must be jewels in her vaults that we are not aware of.

New Nizam

Then I would respectufully but strongly suggest the Queen to have the 3 Nizam remaining roses reset in a new tiara for Catherine!

That's not a bad idea in. But look at the Queens record when it comes to putting together new tiaras: the Burmese ruby tiara, the aquamarine tiara, the sapphire tiara and Sophie's wedding tiara. None of them was a really successful design, if you ask me. Imagine that these beautiful brooches end up as something similar to the Swedish buttons tiaras. I am not sure if I'm going to stand that.

Opinion is divided. Geoffrey Munn indicated that it still existed.
