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

I'll keep my finders crossed.
Unfortunately I think that she will probably revert to the Halo Scroll when it is returned in March 2014. I don't know about you, but I thought the Halo didn't look well set against the white of her rather heavy veil. It sort of got lost and merged into the white of the veil.

I would love to see her wearing a really elegant updo with the Halo and her matching wedding earrings. It would be the first time we got a really good look at how lovely it really look against her glorious brunette hair.

I totally agree 100 percent with you, Marg. The Halo tiara is very delicate and got lost against the white of her opaque veil which did not do justice to it. If she experiments with some good tiara hairstyles when the time comes to start wearing more tiaras, the effect will be stunning, I'm sure.

I agree, the Halo may look better with an updo than it did at the wedding. The requirements of the wedding day surely restricted what Catherine could have dobne with her hair.

Catherine has recently started to experiment with her hair, so I am sure she will get there when it comes to getting her hair right for the tiaras she will no doubt wear in time to come. She is lucky as there are a number of European princesses whose experiences she can draw on.

Well MARG, with any luck she won't be wearing that veil again any time soon!

^^^Agree, but the hair must not compete.

I don't know it what way there were restrictions on her wedding hair choices.IMO she should have worn a lovely up do to show off the beautiful lace on the dress but she chose to wear it down (as usual) and that was her choice.

The primary wedding day considerations that I had in mind included accommodating the veil, tiara and having a hairstyle that will last the full day

Duchess of Cambridge: BRF jewels we would like to see her use

Now that Catherine has started to get access to some of HMs jewels (Papyrus tiara, Nizam of Hyderabad necklace) I thought it would be good to have one place where we could discuss jewels belonging to the BRF that we would like to see Catherine use.

My own personal wish list:

> Greville ruby necklace
> Greville chandelier earrings
> Godman emerald demi-parure
> South African diamond necklace and bracelet
> Delhi Durbar emerald choker

Empress Marie Federwhatever's Sapphire Bandeau tiara that Margaret wore a couple of times in the 1950s or 1960s.

The Greville Ruby Necklace
HM South African Diamonds (her Best Diamonds)
The Marie Feodorovna sapphire tiara
The Saudi Sapphires presented to the Princess of Wales on her wedding in 1981 (and that is the only set of Diana's jewellery I want to see Catherine wear in the near future).

The Oriental Circlet Tiara
The Strathmore Rose Tiara

Those are my two that I would like to see her in now. I know that some of the others are not going to grace her head for a while.

She will need to be Queen before she gets to wear the Oriental Circlet.

It would be nice to see Catherine wear a choker, quite like Camilla does. I know they are not fashionable at the moment, but she could kick off a trend.
