The Halo is on display at Buckingham Palace , along with Catherines wedding dress.

Princess gertrude, it is so nice to hear that someonelse has heirloom peices too, especially these days when things that are not "up to the minuite" seen to be fround upon, but not hear fortunatly.

Zonk, you've given me some hope- if it's normal for royal family members to wear tiaras to that event, then maybe we'll get lucky. It'll be even more exciting since it will have to be a different tiara.

I really hope to see Kate with the Sapphire Bandeau in the future! sapphires are my favourite coloured stones.

I do think the world has moved on from when Diana and Sarah were members of the BRF. As I previously mentioned, Camilla did not wear a tiara in Canada, and I would be surprised if Catherine wore one.

The difference I believe is thats Camilla's visit to Canada was in November 2009, and the Canada National Day celebrations on July 1st. In the past, they have had a formal dinner. I seem to recall Sophie wearing a tiara at such an ocassion, and the Wessexes last visited Canada 2 to 3 years ago.

But I guess we shall see on the 1st.

I hope you're right. I really want to see her in a tiara- those occasions will be few and far between, but pictures of her in tiaras will probably end up being the most reproduced and admired.

I did some research, and unfortunately, it looks like there's not really any precedent to use to guess what's going to happen. Only one other royal tour of Canada since 2000 has coincided with Canada National Day, and that's the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh last year. I can't find a clear source for whether she wore a tiara on that visit or not- it'd be helpful to know if it was the same type of event. But my guess is that because it was the Queen, it was a state dinner, and so it would have been more formal.

Anyway, all we can really do is keep our fingers crossed and wait and see :)

Edit: Looks like the Queen's visit can't be used to determine what the dress code will be for the dinner in Ottawa. She only did day time activities there on her tour, they did a state dinner in Toronto where she wore the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland a few days later: http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/ottawa...yal-visit.html

Thanks so much - not sure that I really like it - is there a good picture of Pr Grace with the tiara around? I don't think that this is the right tiara for Charlene - typewise. Maybe we have some photoshopping artists?

Guys, it's Canada *Day*. Not Canada National Day, but Canada Day.

Sorry for that, but as a Canadian, seeing something like that just bugs me.

Thanks you for saying something!!. That bugs me too!!. It's the same thing as calling Independence Day the American National Day.

Maybe she can wear some nice jewelry hair ornament - without wearing a formal tiara???

Ocean Tiara

It would be lovely if Charlene received a new tiara.

THere is a U Tube video from Van Cleef and Arpels showing the making of the new set. Its made of diamonds and different colored sapphires to indicate the ocean - the sapphires go from light to dark to go from the light blue of Monaco waters to the deep ocean water around South Africa. Its mostly diamonds, with some sapphires, I am not sure if it is 2 pieces ( necklace and tiara) or a necklace convertible to tiara.

Did Charlene have just a plain gold wedding band? I tried to look but didn't get a clear shot.

When I lived in America, people rarely called it Independence Day. Everyone mostly calls it July 4th or even just The 4th. I am with the rest of you in hoping for a tiara in Canada. I do have doubts, though. I question whether the Duke and Duchess are considered senior enough royals to warrant a "state" gala dinner in white tie, plus, with the world economy being what it is, a lot of countries are trying not to flash around their jewels (Monaco being an exception). What gives me hope is a story from Queen Noor of Jordan's book Leap of Faith. Noor was in Canada on what she thought was a working visit, and the Canadian government was a bit miffed that she had not brought her tiara along with her to wear for a dinner event...of course this was several decades ago...

Yes, they both wear wedding rings which are made of 18 carat white gold platinum by Cartier.
