I don't know if we gonna see a Tiara in this tour. But a reporter tweeted that we could except a nice loan from HM for the BAFTA event.

I hope she'll wear the new brooch during this visit! What a nice and appropriate gift. And a good way to advertise Canadian diamonds.

I can't wait to see her wear it! I'm so glad it's not another Maple Leaf Brooch.

The Americans get a tiara and we don't? WTF? I think I'll be cranky about that. I'll get over it, but I will get cranky. Although I don't think we had any real opportunities for one ... still and all ... really? Grrrrrr. Sometimes I really *hate* America. Not really, of course ... but ... hmmm.

Hi,

What have you got against a maple leaf brooch?
She could have been given one with rubies, as that would match the Canadian flag...

Also, there is a black tie dinner being given by the Prime Minister in Calgary, so we may see a tiara here.
I hope so, it would top off the tour very nicely!!

If it's black tie I wouldn't expect a tiara. But a nice diamond necklace (maybe with some sapphires?) and earings would be great.

I completely forgot about the black tie dinner. There it would be more likely.

Regardless, Catherine J, so far my favorite day has been the one that had a 'less glamour' aspect to it. With or without a tiara appearance this Canadian tour has being the perfect way to start they life together as members of the royal family.
I like Canada even more now

This tour kinda makes me want to put Canada on my bucket list (which consists manly of travel destinations).

What have I got against Maple Leaf brooches? Nothing except there are three in the Royal Collection already. Time to change things up, be a little bit more original, like polar bears and northern lights!

I feel the same about the maple leaf brooches. There is always one to borrow, as we have seen. So it's nice that Kate received a different design.

wow. I think the gifts are very beautiful. They represent the Northern territories and are very distinctive. I hope we see them worn. I think it's quite thoughtful to come up with a new design. I think william could wear the cuuflinks all the time. The brooch is the Duchess of Cambridges' first jewelry gift and it is very beautiful

Catherine would have received substantial (ie,'serious') jewellery gifts from, at the bare minimum, the Queen, Prince Charles, and her husband. It's royal tradition.

I would have much preferred a pretty maple leaf to those hulking bears!
Although it was a nice gesture.

(Still, you'd think they could have come up with something she could wear frequently and not just when touring Canada.)

Her Majesty's pink diamond brooch with the largest pink diamond in the world is from Canadian mines.

I agree, it would have been nice to have a more usable design.

Hi,

Yes, there are many diamond mines in Northern Canada.
Canadian diamonds are often referred to as Polar Diamonds, and are mined 'conflict free' as opposed to Africa and Asia.
