Princess Michael wore a tiara at her wedding which came from her mother-in-law & Serena Linley wore one of her mother-in-laws' tiara's. Why wouldn't Autumn be loaned one either from the Princess Royal or from Her Majesty? Both seem to be very fond of Autumn.
Marie-Christine became a Princess of the UK on her wedding day and Serena became the wife of a future Earl. Autumn will remain a commoner, so there's a difference.

But Peter would probably inherit one or more of his mother's tiaras upon her death, so I don't see why Autumn couldn't wear one of them at her wedding.

Yes but neither was marrying the eldest grandchild of the reigning monarch.

Commoner or royal, it doesn't make a difference. Autumn could wear a tiara if she wanted to. Any woman can. The question is whether or not she wants to. She may want some sparkles on her wedding day or she might want simple elegance. It has nothing to do with the title (or lack thereof) of her groom.

Tiaras do not equal royalty. Tiaras are an important part of the English wedding tradition, and are widely used. It is common for jewellery to be passed down or borrowed for the purpose of wearing it at a wedding. My grandmother wore a tiara, and she only came from a minor county family.

If Autumn does not wear a tiara it will be her own choice, not because of rank. My guess is that Princess Anne will offer her use of one from her collection. I doubt something new will be purchased. It will be interesting to see if the Queen offers to give Peter a peerage.

I agree!!! Peter at least has ROYAL blood in him too. And Laura Parker Bowles wore a tiara from her mother's side of the family when she got married, and they are not even titled or royal...

So if Autumn wants one...I am sure The Princess Royal or HM will be more than happy to share one.

Amazing how some think they are royals on here.. ;-)

Autumn should be able to wear one of The Princes Royal's tiaras she will be the wife of the Queens grandson and most likely the frist to give her a great-grandchild ....Titled or Not they are still one big happy family!!!!

I agree.. I would love to see her in the Greek Meander Tiara.. I think that is what it is called. It has a lot of family meaning to Princess Anne as it was her grandmother's, I think. Please correct me if I am wrong.

Who knows down the road how HM's personal jewels will be divided after she passes... Maybe each granddaughter (and granddaughter-in-law(s)) will receive some stunning pieces to wear....

Since y'all are talking tiara's, I was wondering, I know they cost a fortune, but are they still popular, new ones, I mean? In Britian? I know this is why stuff is handed down but has anybody had one made recently?

The Gulf and Saudi monarchies are said to spend millions of dollars a year on jewels, along with the Sultan of Brunei. The Malaysian and Thai monarchies also have sizable collections of newer jewels, including tiaras.

I bet that's a FORTUNE!! I went on the Harry Winston website: Fine jewelry by Harry Winston: diamond ring, engagement rings, luxury watches, bridal jewelry…
and they don't even have prices which tells me they're SPENDY!!
Ditto Cartier:
CARTIER - The renowned French jeweller and watchmaker
And Faberge:

You didn't expect anything so common as pricetags did you? The high-end jewellers probably operate on the principle that if you need to know the cost, you can't afford it.

This is the very reason why I LOVE going to Vegas. Mr. Russo and I popped into the Fabergé store in the Caesar's Palace because they had a display of the eggs and being the Russophile freak that I am, I knew some history behind them. Well, they got the enameling method back after the workshops were burned by the Bolsheviks and those little eggies are being churned out in record for for $$$$$! But the neat thing was, they didn't know we WEREN'T high rollers and it was fun to touch and talk about the eggs without them looking down on us common folk.

Yes. Many people thought that she would wear this tiara

Do you think that she will wear it more times?

She really won't have a reason to wear it more, because they don't attend state banquets.
