Royal Asscher, Tacori, and Judith Ripka tiara designs are possible, but the Stratmore tiara would be best.

Yes, definitely some updates for Lady Liberty. :) I'm hoping for the Strathmore tiara as well, unless there is one hidden deep in the vaults that has not been seen for umpteen years.

No. There were a few notable pieces, such as the Teck Diamond Necklace and the Papyrus Fan Tiara, that were not included in the auction of Margaret's jewels. Presumbly, these remain with Lady Sarah and Viscount Linley.

I would love for Kate to get a new one all her own for the wedding. She has such unique style... It would just be fitting in my opinion. Not long till we find out!

Tiara or No Tiara?

In today's Independent, Talbot Church at says there will be no tiara.

Sigh...

"* No tiara. According to wedding consultants, tiaras suggest privilege. It has been reluctantly agreed that "Princess Ordinary" should go without on this occasion."

Lol, she may not be noble, but she's pretty privileged. If Autumn Kelly can wear a tiara, so can Kate imo.

Is Talbot Church a "reliable source"? And since when is Britain a classless society? Isn't that one of reasons that the Middletons have gotten some negativity .... stepping up above their "place"???

I doubt this person knows whereof they speak. :)

From the articles I've read previously from Talbot Church, he seems to write tongue-in-cheek and his articles are never meant to be taken seriously. He's written some very amusing pieces on the upcoming wedding and the royals that I really enjoyed. I'm sure someone here will correct me if I'm wrong.

Maybe no tiara but some broches used as pins in her hair.

I found this picture of Victoria Bourbon-Two Sicilies at her wedding.
She had an original way of attaching her veil.
Kate could certainly pull that of with her beautiful hair

If ordinary "folks" like my second daughter can wear a tiara as a hairpiece/veil holder, what is to stop Miss Middleton? I say go for it and never mind the naysayers!!!

I am still hoping for a proper tiara! If she steps out of the car with out one, I will turn off my TV and go into a mayor depression for the rest of Friday 29th!!!
So many commoner brides borrow tiaras from their in-laws, when the marry into noble families (or more general: when they marry into families which own a tiara). And she's not marrying just any noble bloke, she's marrying a future king!
Oh dear, I just hope that all these reports are mere based on the imagination of some frustrated journalists.

Well, I believe a tiara is in order. I know "things" are tough most places, but they don't have to buy a new one! I think Kate just might not want to wear one. If that's the case, it's OK by me. She will simply give us less to remember about her wedding.

You can say that again, KittyAtlanta! There is a fine line between not wanting to overdo the glitz and glamour for the sake of hard times, or going overboard trying to please, and in the process losing some of the magic. I remember my mother telling me that, no matter how hard things were in the depression, they still went to the movies and loved to watch people dress up and wear jewels. It was fun -- and it took people's minds off their troubles. And I remember reading that the Queen (Mother) dressed up every day that she went out with the King to visit areas of London that had been bombed during the blitz, and she wore day dresses, but with furs, hats and jewels. She knew that people appreciated her efforts and it gave them a lift to see her beautifully attired, as they expected a queen to be.

This is the only marriage of an heir for another full generation (assuming this marriage survives) and they need to realize that they will miss an opportunity to bond people further to them by inspiring us with the pomp and ceremony -- and the beautiful dress and jewels so many people look forward to seeing.

I hope she does not wear the Spencer tiara.Shes always going to be compared to Diana she should not encourage that.Victoria did the same thing and everyone predicted that.I think she should wear the same tiara the queen wore on her wedding day.

She can't wear the Spencer Tiara anyway. She's not marrying into the Spencer family, she's marrying into the Windsor family. The Spencer tiara is reserved for Spencer brides.

All this bellyaching about whether she'll wear a tiara or not.....who cares? She more than likely will, but if she doesn't, is it the end of the world? Will the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse gallop down the Mall? If her not wearing a tiara causes people to remember less about her wedding, they probably need to start taking some gingko biloba for their memories, because they're starting to go on the fritz.

She could show up with a bucket of fried chicken on her head -- as long as she shows up, that's the important thing.

That could pose a major problem for Prince William.. I've been known to kidnap people over a good bucket of fried chicken

Thank you, Sister Morphine, for saying this TRUE statement yet again! The Spencer Tiara is not an option, never was an option, and never will be an option for this wedding!

Plain truth of the matter is that WE all want to see a tiara, preferably something we can identify from Suzy Menkes or Leslie Fields as a long-lost treasure from the vaults. I'm totally down with that. As long as we all realize that the only reason we have for wanting her to wear a tiara is that we want to see a tiara.

She doesn't have to wear one, there's no "rule," but if Autumn Kelly can wear one without being called a social-climbing, uncaring, "let 'em eat cake" snob, then I guess that Miss Middleton can walk down the aisle in Westminster Abbey with 2 billion people watching real-time around the world and get away with wearing a tiara!

Yes, she probably could.... but for the estimated 2 billion people expected to be watching, it would be snoozville if she doesn't have a certain WOW factor. Either in the dress or the headpiece... whatever it may be.
