Off topic , I know , but this is the English perspective.
The Church of England do permit the marriage of divorced people in church. We have moved on since the days when to be divorced was to commit social suicide !
I have been to a couple of church weddings where the bride did not wear a white dress, one wore a gold colour, the other a pale blush pink.
Meghan's first marriage wasn't in this county .

Of the known tiaras? Just a couple maybe 3. I don't see her wearing the Halo since Kate wore it or the Lover's Knot since that seems to be Kate's main tiara.

Lotus (aka Papyrus), Strathmore Rose are two that come to mind. Perhaps the Teck Crescent since Camilla hasn't ever worn it.

We don't know if the Sapphire Bandeau or Lozenge are still in existence.

LaRae

I think the Teck Crescent looks really good on Meghan (thanks for the photoshop!) as does the Lozenge! Not a fan of the Strathmore on her.

The Crescent and the Strathmore are the only two and that appear to be the most appropriate for a wedding and available at this point. At least based on current information.

These who are buried in the vault We never know what happened to these unseen tiaras unless they appear in auction market/somebody's head/etc. So I would assume they are at somewhere of the palace (and just unluckily nobody wants to wear them). (Or just let me keep the hope that these beautiful pieces are still there )

Actually I am not sure purchasing a tiara will be a good option. I mean we, of course, want to see a new tiara, but will the general public, especially the republican/antimonarchist, think it is an appropriate thing to do so?
Great job! Thank you so much! This seals it for me. The Crescent tiara is perfect on her. The Strathmore is just too girlish.

Now I am hoping Teck Crescent Tiara or Lozenge Bandeau, it seems that both look amazing on her.

The Lotus is Kate’s second tiara that she has been widely photographed in. I think that one can be taken off the list.

Yeah probably so. It's hard to know what Meghan really has access to. Just the couple we know of...more we don't know of...old ones thought dismantled or sold?

Gorgeous but perhaps a little too big 'grand' for a wedding? The price is certainly going to make you blink!

I hope one of us is independently wealthy or has a very well heeled boyfriend/husband! lol

LaRae

I found more!

I know it's not all blingy but I quite like it.

Who wore it?

Thank you W.Y.CII.
Your photoshopping of the Strathmore Rose confirmed to me that it is the best. The gold suits Meghan and the style is refreshing in a naive artistic kind of way. It has a warm and fertile radiance.

Love this! This is great! (It helps that in the picture she is wearing a gorgeous top!)
