I agree, the historic ones are nicer.

I still think Charles, who has reps at all the major auction houses, may gift one to Meghan for her exclusive use.

I read recently that he has been quietly buying up pieces of jewelry that Edward VII gave Alice Keppel (Camilla's ancestress) in order to add them to Camilla's collection (much enlarged over the last 12 years).

It would not surprise me if he finds an exquisite tiara and earmarks it for Meghan.

I think with the economy and such HM has loosened the hold of her personal collection. I am not saying we are going to see Catherine wearing the GGB or the kokoshnik or Harry's wife wearing the Vladimir, Catherine but we have already seen her wear three different less significant tiaras and Sophie has also been spotted with other jewels on loan.

When we saw the Halo Scroll we all thought that was going to be Catherine's go-to tiara, however, that has proven an incorrect assumption. So, perhaps we will see Meghan wear the Halo Scroll for her wedding as it the precedent has been set. But, in my dreams, I would love to see her wear the Fringe Tiara for her wedding but I think it is more likely to turn up on Beatrice and Eugenie for their weddings because that seems a perfect tiara for a wedding.

I would think Beatrice and Eugenie will wear Sarah's tiara. It's going to go down to them anyway.

I like the Scroll Tiara but I would like to see Meghan wear something different at her wedding, assuming they marry.

If the Countess of Wessex who married the son of a reigning monarch was not able to borrow one of the more substantial tiaras from the Royal Vaults, why do you think that a divorced woman who is marrying a Royal member who is 5th in line to the throne would have access to these gems? Keep in mind that the Duchess of Cornwall who married the son of the reigning monarch who is second in line to the throne and was also a divorcee wore a hat to her civil ceremony and a dipped feather headpiece to the religious blessing.

Camilla and Charles did not have a huge wedding, and it was a second wedding for both. Her wearing a tiara to the wedding would have looked bizarre to say the least. It was nothing to do with her being a divorcee. If she wanted to wear a tiara she could very well have worn her family one but chose to wear none. And since her wedding she has worn numerous pieces.

Harry is only 5th??? When Edward married he was 7th in line for the throne. He was the third son of the queen. And at the time there was little plan for Sophie or Edward to be working royals. Since that changed, since they became working royals, she has been given access to a family tiara, the five aquamarine tiara.

Harry may be a grandson right now, but he is the second son of the future king. And until George is an adult and taking on full time royal duties, that makes him a very high position as senior royal. He will be performing major royal duties for many decades to come as will his wife.

The royals are also very more conscious about finances and the situation. Buying a brand new tiara when they have entire vaults, would not be a smart choice at this time. Now if they crafted one from say one of the necklaces, or at the very least bought one from auction, the cost would be explainable.

Despite all of that, I doubt we will be seeing Ms Markle in any of HM's iconic tiaras on her potential wedding day. It would be lovely to see something brought out of the vaults.

I'm hoping we see one of the tiaras come out of the vault that haven't been seen for ages. Who knows what all is in there!

Nobody said one of the queen's 'iconic' tiaras. She doesn't even lend those to Camilla. We are simply talking pieces from the vaults. Certainly no one is suggesting Meghan wear a tiara personally worn by the queen now.
