I agree Dazz! I couldn't click on the link for the 25 Tiaras that the article mentions. Was anyone else successful?

Honestly, with all the "royal experts" that have commented on this wedding, I wish some of us at TRF had done the deed. Some of the information that is being provided is simply awful.

Just had a thought - perhaps Camilla might lend her the Boucheron Honeycomb or the Delhi Durbar for the day - it could be Catherine's something borrowed...and would be a strong statement about welcoming Catherine into the family and Camilla's position...

The Delhi Durbar is way too big. It looks too big on Camilla, it would dwarf Catherine's head.

I really hope the others not often seen are better than that one

I agree...the honeycomb and Dehli Durbar are the biggest and ugliest tiaras I've seen. Catherine should have something much more fresh and delicate

I'm thinking the Ladies of England.... if it still exists. It is pearl and diamonds and looks something like the Girls of great britain and Ireland.

I wasn't aware of that tiara before last month, and what a nice discover it was .
I blame the Dutch and Luxembourg Royalhouses for making me crave spetacular tiaras .

QEII doesn't strike me as someone who overthink her jewels choices. The ones that are there she uses and the ones broken or in a fragile state she let it be (that's how I see).
With a major related to art and history I hope eventually Catherine will get to display those "new old" pieces.

I agree. I didn't bring it up because it is so large. It was large for Camilla, also, in my opinion. It's an impressive tiara, but it is HUGE!!! I can't think of anyone who can wear it well.

I see Kate in something with a little height but delicate in design. All the ones I can think of belong to the Queen.
Also, I see the Spencer tiara as an option. She's wearing Diana's engagement ring. Her wearing the Spencer tiara isn't that much of a stretch. It might not happen but I think it might be sorta pretty on Kate.

The tiara Kate would wear on her wedding, would that be given to her to use later on or would that just be when she is allowed to? I hope Kate gets a tiara that has not been seen reentry or worn much in the past. SOmething new for use to see again and something that wont be compared to a lot.
When Princess Mary of Denmark got married, the tiara worn on her wedding day was given to her which if not mistaken was the families and is worn for other events as well.

The Spencer tiara keeps getting mentioned and the answer is always the same. She's not entitled to wear it. The Spencer tiara is reserved for Spencer brides; i.e. women marrying into the Spencer family or Spencer women marrying into another family. Catherine is neither of those things. She's a Middleton, and she's marrying into the Windsor family. Diana wore it on her wedding day because she was a Spencer bride; a Spencer woman marrying into another family.

She has no right or entitlement to it.

I asked because it's hard to say if she's sporting an actual hairdo or just decided to have her hair up.
I think that the picture is from a tv show. It was shown with photos of her arriving at the hairdresser, and of her sitting in the chair as well. I'll try to find it. She was wearing the same outfit she wore when she lunched with Camilla.

She left the salon with her tresses arranged in what appeared to be an artfully dishevelled bun, sparking further speculation as to whether the 29-year-old will wear her hair up or down for the ceremony.

Sorry. I'm not as well versed as you and others are.

Do the children's ancestry only come through the father? I wasn't aware of that. How can Prince William only be a Windsor and not also a Spencer? I certainly consider myself as much a member of my mother's family as I do my father's family. Since Prince William is a member of the Spencer family as well as the Windsor family, isn't Kate marrying into the Spencer family as well as the Windsor family?

That's where genealogy gets convoluted!! If you are marrying the heir's heir, then you marry into HIS family, doesn't matter who HIS mother was. The Spencer family tiara belongs to the Spencers, NOT the Windsors. I think it is enough they used Diana's engagement ring. Let Kate have HER day. She has the nod to Diana on her hand. My advice to Kate: BE YOURSELF!!!!!!

No, but I'm fairly confident that if William were to call up Uncle Spencer and ask to borrow it that he would not be denied, for a number of reasons.

Don't worry about mgrant. Its all good

Really the Spencer Tiara is a beautiful tiara but there are plenty of jewels in the Windsor vault that Kate can wear.

And yes, William is half Spencer half Windsor but Catherine is marrying into the House of Windsor (add Mountbatten if you like).
Now if Kate was from an established family with a tiara of their won, than I expect she would wear that. I just don't think that has been the case.

I believe that the late Duchess of Kent (Princess Marina of Greece and Denmark) wore a tiara that had been in her family, as did Princess Alexandra of Denmark (when marrying The Prince of Wales) and the late Duchess of Gloucester.
