Hello KittyAtlanta, forgive my question, but which photo is on your avatar? Maybe someone famous? I try to find but failed. Happy if you answer my question.

Sarah Ferguson was wearing a tiara, it was just obscured by the flowers and front part of the veil. When she emerged from signing the register, that part of the veil and the flowers had been removed, and the tiara was then visible.

Of course, so far, no one is 100% sure, but I'm putting on my coins on Kate wearing a tiara, any. Come'on! I would be very upset otherwise
If she doesn't wear one, we should demand a 1 minute of silence in this thread!

Thanks for the correction. :)
The Queen Mother did not wear a tiara, though some wear she did, she did not so maybe that's where it came from :)

I have so much excitement about this wedding, that if Kate doesn't wear a tiara or has a boring dress, I may never think of the Royals as Royals ever again. Call me shallow if you will, but when it comes to the BRF I expect Pomp........... Wearing flowers in and a tiara out wouldn't be bad at all. If I was torn as to what to do as a royal bride, thats probably what I would do. Sarah done good

Thank you for that , Yes, I agree - I had in fact made this point properly on an earlier thread, but just did not express this clearly in my current post. Actually, Sarah would have had to have been wearing the tiara under the veil/band of flowers, because it would have taken too long to fix a tiara and veil properly in the Vestry.

I must say that if Catherine takes the same approach, she has chosen a lovely time of year for her wedding, because it is Spring and I think Spring Flowers are lovely.

The Queen Mother didn't wear a tiara when she married the-then Duke of York, and her dress was rather plain and boring, at least owing to the fashion of the times. I don't think it made her any less royal.

I'm 99.99999% certain that Catherine will have a tiara on her head when she gets married, but if for some reason she chooses not to, and just goes with a nice array of flowers and maybe a jeweled pin to anchor her veil, it's not going to change who she is, or what she'll become.

Let's face it, even a "low-key" wedding by BRF standards is immeasurably grander than anything we would normally see in real life. I'll still be interested.

The queen mother did not wear a tiara but, at the time of her marriage, she was not marrying an heir, therefore was not expected to one day be queen. Kate is marrying the heir's heir, so perhaps that may make a stronger case for tiara-wearing...

I don't know about you all, but I'm getting pretty excited. Frankly, I have a feeling we're all going to be surprised, and in a good way in regards to her dress and tiara.

I suppose we should all wish them well, happiness, heath, and a long life!

Who you're marrying doesn't determine if you wear a tiara or not. I mean, Sarah and Sophie both wore tiaras when they married, and neither Andrew nor Edward are expected to be king. It's all down to personal preference. The Queen Mother chose to wear a band of myrtle with a York rose on each side, which was as symbolic as any tiara would have been, but the fact she chose not to wear one had little to do I believe, with the fact that the Duke of York was not expected to become king.

I suppose the two weeks ahead us before the week of the wedding will be the longest weeks of all. Nothing knew to learn from the official website, I hope (and I'm confident) there will be a photo opportunity before the wedding with the prince of wales and new photos released the week of the wedding like the 25 26 27 april? and maybe a interview with Piers Morgan, or with anybody else? What do you think?

If you, like me, long for this wedding to happen, 14 days ain't that bad. Don't forget on monday they will have one more engagement so that should distract us a bit.
If Piers Morgan get to interview them , it would be after the wedding. I can't see William and Catherine wanting to reveal details before the ceremony.

I do hope she wears tiara - I think she will, I couldn't find a first wedding in the Windsors since the Queen mother where one was not worn, likewise, the brides in the weddings of their contemporaries seem to have worn them as well.
QEII, Princess Margaret, Princess Anne (first marriage,) Diana, and Sarah all wore tiaras, as did Sophie, Lady Helen Windsor (1992,) Serena when she married Viscount Linley, and Lady Sarah Armstrong Jones.
More recently, Autumn wore one when she married Peter, Lady Tamara Grovesnor wore one in 2004, when she married Edward Van Cutsem, Rose Astor wore one in 2005 for her wedding to Hugh Van Cutsem, Lady Rose Windsor wore one in 2008, Sophie Winkleman wore one in 2009, when she married Lord Frederick Windsor, Alice Haddon Patton wore one for her marriage to Captain Nicholas Van Cutsem in 2009, and Lady Katie Percy wore a huge tiara for her wedding this year.

Will all this "modern" thinking, I am starting to doubt that she won't wear any tiara in any time of her life, as Princess of Wales or as Queen. :s

You were probably thinking of the Queen Mother! She wore a myrtle band with a rose on each side. Ugh!!!

I am pretty sure Kate will wear a tiara for her wedding, I don't see why she wont.

I really do hope she chooses to wear a tiara! Couldn't she do both; wear a tiara and have a couple of flowers in her hair? If she would have a nice updo (I do hope she will be wearing her hair up in some kind of a nice hairdo like the ones we see Crown Princess Mary and Crown Princess Victoria wear), she could have a couple of roses or orchids in her hair and the tiara with the veil. Or, compromise and wear a floral tiara!

I think a lot of people will be disappointed if Catherine decides to be "plain" and "ordinary" or in her words "modern". We see floral hair arrangements and cheap tiaras all the time at weddings. Finally we have a chance to be able to see something glittery and beautiful and she wants to break the tradition... I come from a country where there's no royals so I want to see tiaras! Here's hoping she will be wearing them in the future too.

I can just about accept Prince William not wearing his wedding ring (funnily enough, here in Finland it used to be the tradition that both get plain engagement rings and only the bride gets the wedding ring) but no tiara... What's next, she doesn't want any titles either?
