It's a bit unorthodox, but I personally would like to see Catharina-Amalia wear the "heirloom diamond tiara" (I believe that is its name--the single row of MASSIVE collet diamonds worn on several occasions by her mother). This would look stunning securing a veil at her wedding.

Is that the one they call the "Bandeau" tiara? I heard Q.Beatrix allowed her daughters in law to choose their tiara for their weddings. I would have definitely picked that one!

Just to clarify my previous comment. I thought it would be a lovely way to acknowledge Princess Diana (and her family) if William's bride, or Harry's bride, wore the Spencer tiara. I doubt that Earl Spencer would refuse to loan the tiara to a royal bride if he were asked by a royal nephew.

But everyone disagreed with me since the Windsors have their own more important tiaras (and maybe the boys will have the wisdom to marry aristocratic girls with their own tiaras ).

Well, there have been rumours circling for years that no royal prince will marry another "Princess Diana" (i.e. a girl without a past), so we might not see the same kind of aristocrats marrying this generation. i, for one, hope for more of the "Princess Mary" kind of girls for William and Henry.

Although I do agree, belle, that the Earl wouldn't refuse such a request, the tiara worn by a royal bride in the United Kingdom usually becomes her tiara for a while (until gifted another by HM or not). So I think it's more likely that we'd see a tiara from the royal collection given to a royal bride, which she would then continue to wear thereafter. This is, of course, unless said bride already has a family heirloom, as you pointed out.

I think the next one to wear a tiara for the first time of the younger royals is Princess Alexandra of Luxumbourg.

Do you think Princess Astrids of Belgium girls will wear a tiara, i think maybe for their wedding..

Perhaps for their wedding they might be, but other then that I don't think they will, unless they marry into a family that has many of them...:)

I have a question, although Peter Phillips doesn't poses any royal title will his fiance Autum Kelly wear a tiara at their wedding?

I doubt there would be any difficulty in borrowing a tiara from Princess Anne, but we'll just have to wait and and see if she chooses to wear one.

You never know. If I remember correctly, don't Lady Linley and Lady Sarah Chatto have tiaras at their disposal?


I like the way the Swedish royal family has dealt with tiaras for Victoria and Madeleine. They usually wear smaller, less grand tiaras than their mother, but still very prettty.

.
Linley/Chatto inherited the Poltimore tiara on the death of Princess Margaret. They did not have access to any jewellery other than than beonging to PM, or what they may have received as presents from the Queen or the Queen Mother.

Unfortunately, the Poltimore tiara was subsequently sold as both the children did not feel they could put it to good use and preferred the cash instead! This is one of the reasons why the Queen has only given "serious" jewellery to Camilla or Diana previously, and not really to Anne, Sarah or Sophie as typically, minor royals do not have much use for the jewels, and often they end up being sold and leaving the royal family

Could not agree more. The girls are unlikely to receive tiaras. They may use the one given to their mother on her wedding.

Once she finishes school she will be taking up duties. There is going to be some shortage of royals to cover duties in the next few years. The Duchess of Kent has retired, Princess Alexandra turns 70 at Christmas. With the deaths of Pncss Margaret & the Queen Mum and Andrew's lack of a wife there is a dearth of royal ladies to perform the expected duties. At present there is only Camilla, Sophie, Anne, the Duchess of Gloucester & Princess Michael. In that group Camilla turns 60 next year, the DoGlstr is nearly 61, Anne is 56 and, I think, Princess Michael is a similar age. That only leaves Sophie in the under 45 bracket & it is not inconceivable that she may have another child. Beatrice & Eugenie are going to have to take up some of the slack at least until William & Harry acquire wives.
I seriously doubt Beatrice and Eugenie will ever be part of state banquents or be appearing at state occassions in tiaras. The current mood is very much one of reducing the royal entourgae rather than increasing it!

Additionally, Linley and Sarah did not sell the following pieces:
The Turquoise Parue (Thank GOD!)
The Papyrus Motif pearl and diamond tiara (worn by the Queen Mother and described as Egyptian in style, also worn by Lady Serena Stanhope on her wedding to day to David Linley)
The Snowden Floral Tiara
The Teck Circle Necklace/Tiara

So, hopefully we will see them at some point.

Thanks Janet, I thought they still had some.


Lady Sarah Chatto wore the Snowdon Floral Tiara on her wedding day (and it is gorgeous). It looks a lot like the Spanish floral tiara

I am of the opinion that all except the Snowdon tiara will have been returned to the Queen. Linley may have been permitted to retain the Papyrus for his wifes' use but I think that all would be returnable to BP when not required. If this were not the case I'm sure Linley would have sold them being the mercenary sort that he is.

I hope that they were returned, especially the circle necklace the turquoise because it has been in the family for so long. I get its provenence confused with the Gloucester's parue, but I think they are both breathtaking--and I don't particulary care for turquoise! That is the power of a good design. As for the circle necklace, it was Queen Mary's mother's and should remain in the family. It would look nice with the Grand Duchess Vladimir's tiara with the pearls or just plain.

I laughed out loud and almost choked on my tea when I read your description of Linley being a mercenary. Very accurate, I find him to be reprehensible. His wife, by the way, is loaded. I cannot imagine letting my husband sell off tiaras and necklaces--especially the riviere. HORRORS. Selfish lot of them.
