I had wanted simple, but I didn't know there was an older tiara that could capture simple so well. Lovely.

Ok - so it's the scroll- why can't the royals call it that then? Very annoying and honestly took away from the wedding for me

Oh yes that's the Scroll-

Interesting choice! It suited her well. She looked perfect, and perfectly herself.

I think the Halo and Scroll are the tiara, just the Royal Collection has the official name as the Halo, while we have dubbed it the Scroll. You look the same in the pictures and the story of the Scroll and story of the Halo listed on the official website are identical.

Close picture of the tiara on the bride, there is no doubt that it is what used to be called Scroll:

Perhaps the tiara is titled as the Halo tiara but styled as the scroll tiara.

Ok.. ok...now I KNOW I've been up too many hours. I'm getting goofy.

It's the scroll for certain. Perfect for her understated elegance.

I think many were hoping for the Strathmore Rose, but the Scroll (yes, I'm still calling it the Scroll) Tiara was wonderful. I thought that she would look best in a smaller tiara, maybe even a bandeau headpiece, and this filled the bill beautifully. It echoed the curly designs of the lace somehow, and really looked great.

Very odd about all the confusion, but it does look to me like the Scroll Tiara.

Maybe they don't know their jewelry as well as we do!

Indeed it was perfect. I loved the fact that it has been worn by each generation; The Queen Mother, The Queen, Princess Margaret, Princess Anne and now The Duchess of Cambridge!

It totally matched the dress, and I loved her new earrings, very tasteful. I reckon we will see her in those many times!

I don't believe the Queen's ever been seen in the Scroll, has she?

The earrings were from her parents- what a lovely gift!

I find it strange that Princess Margart wore it so often, when it already belonged to Princess Elisabeth. But I'm sure that it is the same tiara.
Yes i alwys thought it belonged to the Queen Mother and was lend out to Margaret and later to Anne. Margaret even wore it for the coronation in 1953.
I think not Catherine is the Duchess of Cambrdige she can also use the Lovers Knot tiara at some point.

I think a lot of thought went into the tiara for the wedding.

The Halo or scroll tiara was a marvelous choice I think. There's a lot of history behind it and it was worn by women of the House of Windsor basically just starting out. The Queen Mum just shortly before the abdication, the Princess Elizabeth when she turned 18, Margaret for her sister's coronation and then Anne. Its obviously been used as a "starter" type tiara and perfect for this occasion.

There are many many years ahead (hopefully) for Kate to wear more illustrious (and heavier) tiaras and I wouldn't doubt one bit that she will wear the Cambridge Lover's Knot at some time in the future.
