That's a reasonable explanation given that Serena's hair is out of proportion to the small tiara. Her padded updo looks styled for a larger piece.

most of that updo is a hair piece.

People go on about "updo"s but it you have really long hair (been there) it is v difficult to put your hair up and keep it there. Unless of course you are into helmet hair - which I'm not. When my hair was a long as Catherine's, I always wore it "half up". Looked good, but no worries of an imminent collapse.

In her case, that would be loss of dignity and loss of tiara.

How many of us would have guessed this tiara would be the first after the wedding? Not me! I'm just thrilled that our girl can carry off a tiara so well. I was worried for a while that she had tiaraphobia! Or bad tiara hair. Neither is true.

Not me, I was expecting the Halo Scroll. I'm guessing Kate now has access to two tiaras now?

YMMV on that one

I'm encouraged by the fact that she's worn two different tiaras in her two tiara appearances! Maybe she'll surprise us and be one who enjoys playing in the vaults.

It would be in keeping with her interest in art history and design.

I'll keep my finders crossed.

I like that Catherine has brought these tiaras back to life.

I don't like the Hallo nor the Lotus. They are not as ugly as the mickey mouse ones from the Swedish collection but almost there... I would rather see Catherine with the Strathmore.

I like the Halo - but I love the metal on it. The metal casting itself is beautiful and adds to the beauty of the piece to my eye.

Love this Lotus Flower tiara with the small use of pearls. She looks just beautiful in it. Keep it up!

Oh my! This is a gorgeous tiara and absolutely perfect for her. Catherine can carry off larger tiara's with her height and natural elegance, which is why I was so disappointed with the scroll tiara choice for her wedding. This tiara just suits her so much better IMO. I truly hope we get more pictures of the full effect of the tiara with her jewelry and dress.

Years ago my hair was Kate's length and very thick and heavy. The weight of it on my head with the four inch bobby pins gave me terrible headaches. That combined with a tiara might be uncomfortable.

I do hope we see Catherine use the Papyrus tiara again. In fact, might I even suggest that for the remainder of the current reign, let this be Catherine's signature tiara.

The Halo Scroll tiara, whilst lovely, was hardly remarkable, and IMO, Catherine probably needs something a bit more substantial, like the Papyrus.

Which tiara is this?
I really hope she will wear the Cambridge Lover Knots, although I don't thing she will. It would be great.
I also think she should leave the Halo tiara in the vaults, just use the Papyrus and one or two other tiaras.

I think Catherine can handle the Teck Crescent Tiara and the Teck Circle Tiara/Necklace.
