Why can't Meghan wear her wedding tiara for all formal occasions? Why a spare?

Hmmm that makes sense too since eventually Harry's family will have more distance from the Throne.

Like the York princesses and Zara, they will use family heirlooms that remain within the family as the generations pass and the closeness to the throne gets more and more remote with time. This will eventually happen to Harry's family and his descendants so having a special "family" heirloom created at this time will be something that passes down in the family rather than return to the royal vault.

Meghan could wear a 'made for her' tiara over again. Most likely she will only have 2 or 3 tiara events a year anyway.

Look at it this way too. When the Duchess of Cornwall's daughter, Laura, married, she wore her mother's Cubitt-Shand tiara that was a family heirloom from Camilla's family. It will continue to be passed down the line as the generations progress. It has no providence whatsoever with the BRF and even though Camilla will be Queen, none of her children will ever be seen wearing something from the royal vault.

Over time, its nice to have family pieces that have their own bit of history to it and remain within the family. This is what would happen should a tiara be created for Harry's bride. Its the start of their own family tradition.

If Meghan marries Harry and goes to lots of events that require a tiara, it could get boring wearing the same tiara to every occasion. Also, different dress styles and hair styles look better with certain tiaras.

Well this makes sense... but of course Meghan doesn't have that so clearly either one will have to be made or a "lesser" tiara from the Queen's vault will have to suffice for the wedding and then Meghan can have a spare?

So which is more important for the tiara Meghan wears:

1) That it is smaller than Kate's? This could be hard - hers was basically a headband.
2) That it has a less storied history than the tiara Kate wore? I guess I could see that.

What was the tiara Diana wore when she got married? Since Kate got both the ring and apparently Diana's watch too - would it be wrong if Meghan wore that tiara?

Diana wore her own family tiara to the wedding. The Spencer Tiara. Meghan won't have access to it. It belongs to Earl Spencer.

And I don't think Meghan wearing Diana's tiara is a good omen. Just as I think Kate having Diana's ring is a bad omen.
Is it set in stone that Meghan's tiara has to be smaller than Kate's? Who came up with that rule.

When Kate wore the halo scroll we knew it was a ‘starter’ tiara. Kate has worn three different tiaras during her marriage and will have access to everything as Queen

Meghan may wear a ‘bigger’ tiara at her wedding but she will have access to a much more limited selection as a royal.

I definitely would like to see Meghan in a tiara. I don't really have a preference but if she were to wear something from the vault, then I think the Strathmore Rose would be a great choice, especially if Meghan were comfortable wearing it across the forehead. She could definitely pull that look off.

Who thinks it might be the LOTUS TIARA, (a bit heavier than the HALO TIARE).
it would look beautiful with MM hair in an updo! I think she can carry a bit more than DOC did.

in Sweden it seems everyone can wear which ever tiara is available. I wish the BRF would go with this idea.

Lady Diana Spencer wore the smaller of the two Spencer family tiaras at her marriage to The Prince of Wales. Both Diana's sisters and her brother's first wife also wore this tiara at their weddings. Her father (and later her brother) allowed her to keep the tiara to wear when she wished as it was easier to wear than Queen Mary's Lover's Knot. It is now back in the possession of Diana's brother, Charles, 9th Earl Spencer. The next wearer will probably be his wife, Countess Spencer, or one of his daughters at their marriages.

Meghan is not a Spencer, and so will not have access to the Spencer family tiara.

I believe we can rule out any tiaras that someone in the RF is already using.

Camilla has: Greville, Teck Crescent, Delhi Durbar.

Kate has: Cambridge Lover's Knot, Lotus, Halo.

Sophie has: Five Aquamarine, Her own wedding tiara.

It's possible some of these have been returned to the vaults by now, but maybe not.

So what would Meghan be most likely to get, if she doesn't receive a wedding tiara?

She's unlikely to get the Strathmore, it being SO fragile, even if restored it is [perhaps] too English in its motifs to be appropriate ?

Queen Mary's Sapphire Bandeau [pirctured],last seen decades ago, worn by Princess Margaret would be good, if it is still in the Vaults ? No record exists of it being sold, either by Margaret or her heirs, so it's with the Windsors SOMEWHERE..

If Meghan is into sapphires that would look great on her.

There may be more tiaras locked way in vaults too that haven't seen the light of day in who knows when...maybe they will get dusted off.

The Brazilian Parure Tiara would look great on her too.

It is rumoured that she prefers Emeralds, but replacing the central Sapphire with an emerald [perhaps Queen Marys' carved emerald brooch] wouldn't be too difficult.

I don't think Meghan will get a sapphire engagement ring, because I think Harry would not want to choose the same thing as William.

I think he'd give her either an emerald or a ruby; if he does, the Grand Duchess with the emeralds instead of the pearls would be very nice.

I've heard that too but she doesn't wear much jewelry (even when going to fancy events) that I've noticed so hard to tell.

IF this is true and they go with emeralds I hope they get really good quality stones to make her tiara since I don't think the BRF has one with emeralds she can use?
