Well, it's one of the more realistic options and I think it was suit Meghan's style. Plus, it's a pretty versatile tiara.

I really don't care to see Meghan in any tiara Kate has worn, so if not the Lozenge or Teck Crescent or one that has been in the vaults for awhile, then I'm all for a new tiara.

I like the Lotus but I don't think it's a good option for wedding. It's a bit too big to me (I don't think she is strictly forbidden to pick a bigger piece, but I guess she will choose a piece, or be offered some tiaras with similar/smaller size as Kate's), and I think it's not veil-friendly if she decides to cover her face, it doesn't have a smooth shape (the spikes with different height) to anchor her veil (like Sophie's).

While I hope to see Meghan wear the Lotus in future, I also hope Meghan has "her own tiara" in her big day rather than something Kate has worn before. (but I don't mind if they decide to share the Lotus in future!)

When you look at the poll, your own vote is shown in italics.

I wouldn't want to see her with a wedding tiara which has already been worn by her sister-in-law. Unless they go for a tradition that brides wear the same wedding tiara, that is. But I'd find it unfortunate if Meghan wore a tiara which Kate has worn at a State Banquet before. Really, I hope that the Queen has kept some tiaras for Harry's bride in the vault, something that hasn't been worn in Harry's generation.

Ah! Okay. So I did vote for the Papyrus Tiara to begin with. Don't know if one is being deceived by the particular photo regarding the colors of the Papyrus Tiara, but if the photo is a good representation, I think those colors would be great for Meghan. (My impression of there being 'colors' may be an illusion of the photo). Colors or not, still the best tiara imo.

What if the Wedding tiara came from America? Here is a Late Victorian Scroll diamond tiara. The tiara was made in America.

I very seriously doubt that the wedding tiara that Meghan would wear would be one that is obscure and without meaning from the United States. This is a British royal wedding and so many look to the tiara and the jewels among other things such as the flowers and the music to mean something.

To wear a tiara from the United States would send a pretty clear message that Meghan wishes to hold onto all thing American even though that sentiment is not actually one that Meghan has. A wedding is a merging of two people into one and frankly, a bride wearing a tiara of provenance to the BRF symbolizes this.

The one deviation that can and does work would be for Meghan to have a tiara created especially for her wedding that would remain within the family that Harry and Meghan create therefore giving it its own sense of provenance for the both of them.

It's a gorgeous tiara (American made) though.

Hmm, but I drooled over the pearl and diamond beauty below it.

Darn, I missed it. It is definitely drool-worthy.

I have been trying to find out if any of the Queens tiara collection have an African connection of any sort. Perhaps some stones sourced there like Harry chose for the ring. I wonder if they might choose something with an African connection since it obviously means a great deal to them.

I would like to see her with something new though, a nice full parure, designed just for her. I will be interested to see what jewelry she is gifted for her wedding. The Middle Eastern states are usually generous to royal brides!

^ It may be 'slim pickings' on the Jewelry front for Wedding Presents [except from the HMQ and her Father-in-Law], since none of the Middle Eastern rulers are expected to attend.
Perhaps later, if they visit those Countries she will receive some ?

I still think Charles may gift Meghan with a suitable tiara (especially if, like that pearl and diamond one, it converts into a necklace).

I don't expect the Queen to do so, she doesn't seem to gift jewelry very often.

(I know she did for Fergie, but that was because Fergie made plans to borrow the tiara from the jeweler, and the Queen did not think that was appropriate. She probably knew the press would have a field day if a DIL wore a borrowed tiara when there are so many in the vaults).

I'm sure the Queen wont 'give' Ms Markle a Tiara.. more likely the 'life-time' loan of one [or rather a 'life of marriage' loan].

But bracelets/earrings [both from HMQ and the Prince of Wales] are FAR more likely..

I don't think that it will be difficult to find a tiara or jewels with an African connection, but that connection may not be something that the BRF wants to draw attention to.

So few occasions for them to wear a tiara anymore. Doesn't make sense to get her one (or make one) when they have who knows how many in the BRF vaults.

Will be interesting to see what happens.

Altho' Ms Markle is descended from Africans [as ultimately we ALL are], that descent is in the remote past.
It would be like giving Lady Gabriella Windsor Siberian Emeralds as a Wedding present, because she has distant Russian Ancestry...
American Gems would be rather more pertinent to her as an individual, surely ?

But as far as it is known Sophie also wore once a loaned tiara for the pre-Wedding Gala in Denmark.
If they want a new tiara for Meghan which belongs to her or Harry they could also use some of Diana's Jewels to create a new one for her.

Meghan will no doubt be given some of Diana's jewellery on her wedding day or soon after, and there may be earrings, necklaces and bracelets with diamonds/emeralds etc from Middle Eastern rulers there.
