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!

It would be very nice to see Catherine use the Greville ruby necklace

^^^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

How would Catherine look wearing the Grand Duchess Vladimir Tiara with Pearls?
How would Catherine look wearing the Grand Duchess Vladimir Tiara with the Cambridge Emeralds?

When she is the Princess of Wales, I don't think she will wear a lot of tiaras. Diana only wore 2, and Camilla has worn 3 so far. If she is only going to wear 2 tiaras like Diana as the Princess of Wales, I would love if she wore the Cambridge Pearl Tiara, and the Lotus Flower Tiara.

Queen Victoria's diamond/sapphire tiara would look fab on the Duchess of Cambridge

I know it's currently with the Harewood's but the Current Earl is a Gr-Grandson of the monarch and is no HRH.
look at the dwindling collections in the Kents, Gloucesters, and Queen mary saw to it they had some Bling.
one can hope that who knows, it's possible to maybe go back into the Main Royal Line.
I can't think of what the Current Earl/Countess would ever need it for other than a Loan to the V&A museum.

Yes, it's a particularly beautiful tiara. But it now belongs to the Earl of Harewood. So there's no chance to see it on the CoCA.

I would love to see her with the girls tiara when she is Princess of Wales. That tiara is very beautiful but might get a bit lost in Camillas hair.

I believe that she will only wear the cartier halo and the lotus flower tiara while Duchess of Cambridge. But I would love, love, love to see her with Queen Mary's sapphire bandeau.

It would be nice to see Catherine in her regal gear but the British royal ladies are rarely seen in public in tiara's. They stopped appearing in public with tiara's in the early 90's. The only events they seem to wear them are State Banquets, State Opening of Parliament and Diplomatic Corps Receptions.

I would like to see her dust off the Lover's Knot Tiara which hasn't been worn nor seen since the early 90's. Also, the Teck Tiaras-

I think I've read somewhere where they dress in white tie for Christmas dinner at Balmoral. Oh if only we could get some pictures from that eh?

Yeah, I think they wear it's white tie and tiara's for Christmas dinner at Sandringham. Although, I don't expect pictures from that but it would be nice if the palace did release pictures of the Diplomatic Receptions and provided a nice group picture of the royal family at the State Banquets. I just think it's a shame for the royals to dress up to the nines just for no one to see it. I've always said that the continental royals hit the right tone for their State events much better than the British royals. They've lost the spark they once had. It may make a come back with Charles's reign though. He's an old-school kind of guy.

I'm thinking that Catherine may have received her Royal Family Order of Queen Elizabeth II by now though. It's not announced and she and William don't attend the events wear it's normally worn.

It is not Christmas but Christmas Eve where they have the formal dinner and do presents. Christmas Day is church and then lunch.

Thanks for the correction on that. My memory just doesn't seem to want to serve me full time these days.

That really makes no sense to me tbh. Why wear a tiara if the public does not get to see it. That is a lot of hassle for pretty much nothing.

What tiaras can Kate actually wear besides the two she has already won? The women in the family all seem to stick to their own.

Every time there is an article about Royals people are complaining in the comments about their tax money paying for their lifestyles. So if you had royals wearing tiaras all the time at events other than state dinners imagine the outrage in a age of austerity.
