Has QEQM ever worn the George IV State Diadem? It seems that QMary and QAlexandra before her did as did QEII and QV....

I think The Queen Mother wore her circlet from the 1937 Consort Crown for State Openings of Parliament, rather than the George IV Diadem.

I wonder why she chose to wear her own circlet???
It seems both consort and regnant queens before her wore the GIV diadem.
Any idea why, I'm really curious.

It could be the Diadem remained with Queen Mary until her death in 1952. When Albert became King, Elizabeth and Mary looked at the crown collection together and she chose which pieces to use as Queen Consort. The George IV Diadem may not have been one of them.

Scroll down on the DM story to see an image of QEQM in the Fringe tiara in necklace form, with the Boucheron Honeycomb tiara.

Does anyone know the what the gorgeous brooch QEQM wore at Charles and Diana's wedding is called and where it came from? I have looked at those pictures so many times and only just now noticed how beautiful it is. (I am sorry, I would like to post a link to this picture, but I don't know how to post links here yet!) Any help would be greatly appreciated if anyone has the time and/or inclination. Thank you!

The Queen Mother wore Queen Victoris'a waterfall/tassel diamond brooch to Charles Wedding.
Worn also by Q Mother for famous black evening dress photo session at Buckingham Palace, and also to the Coronation.

It is a fine piece. Has the brooch been worn by the Queen since the death of the QM?

Thank you very much for sharing the information. It is a beautiful piece, to say the least. I agree with other posts that it's a shame the Queen doesn't wear it. Since it is not something we are likely to see on Kate Cambridge for now, I guess yet another treasure will be sitting in the Royal Vaults for years.

In widowhood, she primarily only used the Greville Boucheron tiara (now used by Camilla) and the Oriental Circlet. As Queen, she used a few more (Fringe, Teck, Turquoise) but did not have a very wide selection as Queen Mary retained most of the tiaras for her own use in her lifetime.

My guess would be this brooch. I don't know what its called, but I recall the Queen dusting it off and wearing it recently.

Thankyou both for your replies.

The brooch was actually Queen Victoria's and was 1 of 2 left to The Crown.
RJWMB call it Q. Vic diamond shaped brooch with 3 pearl drops.

I really wish she wore a tiara at her wedding,like this one.

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Tiara Thursday: The Strathmore Rose

This tiara is so simple yet beautiful and classic.
