The veil is held in place by Queen Mary's diamond bandeau tiara, lent to Ms. Markle by The Queen. The diamond bandeau is English and was made in 1932, with the centre brooch dating from 1893.

It's a beautiful tiara and fits so well with her veil.

I don't know...just know it doesn't look like what is identified as the QM Diamond Bandeau.

No. The Duchess of Kent wore one of the Kent tiaras on her wedding day. It was another bandeau owned by Queen Mary. It is believed that it was transformed into the Kent's fringe tiara.

Queen Mary had 2 diamond bandeaus. The one you are posting, worn by Alexandra, is not the same one. It was given to Princess Marina of Kent, and later passed to her daughter in law the current Duchess. It is believed to now be the fringe tiara of the Kents.

The filigree bandeau Meghan is wearing

They are not same, especially since that tiara was remodeled into the Kent Diamond and Pearl Fringe tiara, worn by Lady Helen at her wedding.

So is this a new to us vault tiara?

Order of Splendour on Twitter refers to it as such:

The palace simply calling what was known as the filigree tiara, Queen Mary’s Diamond Bandeau.

The Palace call it Queen Mary's Bandeau, but it is commonly known as Queen Mary's Filigree Tiara. This is the best shot of Queen Mary wearing it: https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-Ptnxstm6W...2BMary%2B1.jpg

It's an older existing tiara from the BRF vaults.

A wonderful tiara indeed. I am glad that it re-appeared. Unbelievable that it has been collecting dust for decades! Makes you wonder what other treasures still around.

I would love to go through the vaults and find out! Meghan must have had a blast going through everything.

I love the tiara, I had read about it before but assumed it was well "lost" by now!Its a very good "all round tiara" as I imagine the Duchess of Sussex won't have as many choices as the Duchesses of Cambridge and Cornwall.

Is it just me or was Meghan given a larger tiara to wear for her wedding than Catherine was given for hers?

Yes, but considering how tiny the halo was, basically had to be. She would have had to wear no tiara honestly to be smaller. There is no rule that the closer to the throne, the bigger the tiara.

Besides, as we were told, Kate had the choice of several tiaras to wear. She chose the smaller one. Meghan likely had some choice as well.

Meghan's is most likely now her "go to tiara" whereas Kate was always going to have access to more, and bigger, tiaras so only had to pick something to wear for the day itself.
