As much i would like to see the Teck Tiara, or the Strathmore Tiara i Think Meghan will receive a new Tiara or they create a new one with old jewels. Princess Margaret received a new Tiara (poltimore) Sophie and Fergie received a new one too..

Well I hope not because the Brits are notoriously awful at creating new ones.

My guesses:

New tiara
Strathmore tiara
Lotus tiara
Teck moon tiara

Its not a guess but I would love if she wore Margaret's turquoise tiara.

The Greek Meander is even more unlikely then the halo. The queen doesn't own it, she gave it to Anne. I don't see Anne loaning it to her nephew's bride.


I wont take the lotus off the list. I don't think it was given to Kate, simply loaned. But I would definitely rule out the halo (wont be worn by both brides) and the Cambridge lovers knot which seems to be Kate's go to now.

I'd love to see the Strathmore as a bandeau style.

If they go new, I hope its only new to them. Either by buying one in auction or converting a necklace or piece they currently own.

It's true that this tiara is reserved to the queens---but I award you great points for picking out the most beloved one in the vault! I think I have read that this is far and away HM's favorite.

I would love to see Meghan in the Strathmore Rose for her wedding---lovely tiara, lovely bride.

The tiara is a favourite of HM. The only other ember of the BRF to wear it was Queen Mary. Not sure anything says only Queens can wear it, but in this reign, it is unlikely to be worn by anybody else.

My hope is that Meghan will wear the Spencer Tiara.

I know that that technically Meghan does not qualify because Harry carries the Mountbatten-Windsor name and not Spencer, but I would still like to see it happen.

The Spencer tiara belongs to Earl Spencer. His wife and daughters have worn/will wear it.

If Meghan wears a 'currently owned' tiara it will come from the BRF collection. Which is my hope!

My crystal ball tells me that Earl Spencer's wife and daughters will not be using the Spencer Tiara in Spring 2018.

You don't think they will be invited to their nephew/cousins wedding? Even if they don't wear the tiara...my crystal ball tells me neither will Meghan be wearing it.

No, but brides who wear ancestral tiaras like the Spencer one almost always have some direct connection to the family line. Meghan isn't a Spencer and neither is Harry. I believe that if Meghan is going to be offered/borrow a tiara it will be from the BRF, as she will be marrying into it. She won't be marrying into the Spencer family.

And I don't think Charles would care for his daughter in law to wear a tiara reminding him of his own first wedding day.

If Harry asked his Uncle to loan the Spencer Tiara for his Bride to wear 'on the day', I think he'd be unlikely to be met with a refusal..

If Earl Spencer has 'an eye' for publicity and/or a soft spot for his nephew..

I acknowledged in my original comment that Harry is not a Spencer and therefore Meghan does not meet the traditional qualification but that does not stop me from wanting it to happen.

I don't recall Charles having hard feelings about his wedding day. Surely if Charles has a problem with his son's bride wearing the Spencer Tiara on her wedding day then he has a big problem with his late ex-wife's engagement ring being worn all day, every day, year end and year out! So either he does not have a problem with it or he does and his sons are going to do what they want to do.

Of course the Spencers will be invited to the wedding but what does that have to do with Harry's bride wearing the Spencer Tiara on her wedding day?

Of course your crystal ball may be right but my post had to do with my hope that Meghan will wear the Spencer Tiara. If Harry and Meghan have different wants for the wedding tiara then it will not happen, but if it is their wish I doubt if it will be denied.

A poll has just been added to the thread.

Surely we are all curious to finally see Ms Meghan Markle on her wedding day. Let's see if our member can guess it right!

Please feel free to share in the thread for which option you have voted.

In this poll each member has one vote.

I went for the Teck Crescent because I can't imagine Meghan wearing anything previously worn by the Duchess of Cambridge or regularly worn by the Queen. I doubt it will be the Teck but I think it would really suit her.

They’re all so lovely though my choice would be Strathmore Rose. Does Meghan get to pick or is she given a choice? Thank you

More than one person here has tried to explain it to you....Meghan won't wear the Spencer Tiara when she marries Harry. She's not marrying into the Spencer family. She's marrying into the Mountbatten-Windsor family. She will either wear a new one or a BRF tiara (if any).

Actually, I'm (nearly) completely at a loss!

Anne wore the fringe, but she borrowed it from her grandmother, QEQM. Sara got a antique tiara without royal connection. Sophie got the cobbled together anthemion tiara, but later she was also loaned the five aquamarine tiara, and that seems to be a permanent loan. Kate even got three different tiaras to wear so far. We don't know if they were permanent or temporal loans. There is no clear policy to guide us. Really, I need more time to make up my mind.

But I know what I would like to see: One of the tiaras that hasn't been worn for ages. The Strathmore and the Teck especially are my favourites. Ship them off to the jeweller, have them fixed and cleaned, and then trot them out! I also wouldn't mind seeing one of Queen Mary's bandeaus again, though we are not even sure that they are still there.

We can only guess if she get's a choice. But I can't imagine that the Queen will decide that question without consulting it with Meghan and Harry.
