That is one of HM's favourite tiaras. Imo it is unlikely that Kate will get to wear it while the Queen is alive.

That's a wonderful idea, I hope the Queen has it still in her possession. What about the Surrey tiara? It might also be hidden in the vaults.

Imo the Strathmore Rose tiara is a likely and beautiful choice. But now that Kate has received Diana's engagement ring I won't rule out the Cambridge Lover's Knot tiara anymore. The fringe tiara also seems possible. The Rundell is too big, imo Kate will have to do with something smaller to start with.

I guess that Kate will receive only one tiara to start with, and we won't see her wearing it often, as she is going to be an army wife in Wales for some years. So they might not attend state banquets frequently. But after a couple of years she might get the sapphire bandeau of Queen Mary. It would be perfect with her engagement ring!

If she gets a tiara from the Queen the question is if she can chosse herself or it's the Queen who makes the choice.

The question is if the Rundell tiara still exists as it waslast worn by Queen Alexandra. Also the surrey fringe tiara was only worn by Queen Mary when she was Duchess of York/Princess of Wales and not seen since.
As for the Strathmore Rose tiara apparently it's in bad condition and would need repair to be worn.

I also think we will not see Catherine much in tiaras after the Wedding as so far Prince William hasn't attended State Banquets.

I really wish the Queen would allow the brides to choose what they want to wear for the wedding and then maybe pick out a tiara to loan.

For the wedding I think the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland would look nice.
For loan I think the "scroll" tiara would suit her.

Girls of Great Britain is a very very important tiara to give Kate on her wedding day.
I don't think she is ever going to get to wear that tiara until she is Princess of Wales and/or The Queen.

Has that tiara ever been worn by anyone other than HM?

HM has used the Girls of Great Britain tiara extensively, and is unlikely to part with it in her lifetime.
The tiara was previously used by Queen Mary, hence it is referred to as "Granny's Tiara"

Highly unlikely, IMO. The best that Kate can expect is that HM provides her access to 2-3 tiaras and asks her to choose one. The Girls will not be part of that selection.

There is no way she will wear the Spencer tiara, that would be too much Diana.
I could imagine that either HM will make the choice or that Prince Charles will commission a new piece as a wedding gift.

The Teck necklace would make nice tiara...sort of a giant version of Mette-Marit's.

I hope Catherine does not wear the Spencer tiara.Whatever is given to Catherine I am certain she will make it a success.
On her special day I hope she does not wear a tiara at all because she is now the jewel in the crown.

For the record I meant only to let Kate borrow "Granny's tiara" for her special day ( if Kate liked it ), not give it to her on lifetime loan.
We all know that's not gonna happen...would be nice to have a choice on your wedding day.

I think only the tiara in the middle is part of the royal collection, together with the cullingan brooch under it.

You are rigth about the Rundell tiara, we don't know what happened to it. It might be still there, it also might have been dismantled in order to create other pieces. But the same goes for the Surrey and Ladies of England tiaras. We just don't know.
I have heard the same about the Strathmore Rose tiara. If it is true than I would say that now is the time for a decent restoration. It would be such a shame to let this beautiful tiara fall to pieces.

I wonder when that picture was taken. The tiara all the way to the right looks very suspiciously like the Rundell tiara with loops and diamond shapes removed and additions to the sides of the 'pieces' on top!! I wonder...

Yes, but isn't that in Margaret's family?

I also believe that the picture is wrongly titled , I have seen this picture popping up in some jewellery forum in the past and if I remember correctly someone wrote that it was taken from an exhibition and most of the pieces belong to British aristocratic families not the Royal Family

I am not too sure when, but I believe it was for an exhibition (in the V&A museum maybe?).
