Which royal tiara will Kate Middleton wear on her wedding day?

Interesting musings about the possible tiara Kate will wear for the wedding. I happen to think that she will be given a new one, from the Queen maybe?

It's the way the queen takes when she opens parliament, so I guess the security measurements are firmly planned through and trained.

I actually found a great recreation of the route she'll be taking that day

Wow, that still looks like quite the distance to me. But then, I haven't been in London since what feels like forever

Does anyone else get the feeling that Ms. Middleton is making a statement with the transportation to WA in a car and after marrying leaving by carriage as a royal? This is what I think.

In a way I do, but I feel it's more then I am not a princess, now I am a princess, and more along the lines of I am still private and the public doesn't need a full view of me vs. now we are married and understand the public expects a full view.....I believe Ms Middleton is still weary on excepting the public side of marrying into the BRF but that is just my view of it..who knows what she is really thinking.....William and Kate don't seem like lavish over the top people either so maybe that is the reason....

According to Richard Palmer, there were a few reasons that Kate chose to arrive by car.

Quote:
Royal aides said the car was Kate’s choice, partly to avoid accusations of lavishness in the economic times, and partly because she wanted to stress the change in her status.

“It’s her personal choice. She is still going to be Miss Middleton at that point, so she wanted to have a low-key arrival with a departure in splendour as a royal princess,” a senior adviser to the couple said.

“It will still be a very dignified arrival. She will use one of the State cars from the royal mews,” the adviser said, acknowledging that it could be the Rolls-Royce Phantom VI in which Charles and Camilla were attacked during anti-tuition fee riots in December.
I really like the fact that she'll be arriving by car, and leaving by carriage.

She might take the idea a step further and do what Sarah Ferguson did by arriving with flowers in front of her tiara and leaving with the tiara showing.

I'm hoping she does NOTHING that reminds of Sarah Ferguson.

I wonder if arriving by car might be a security precaution, especially after the scare Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall had? One of those bulletproof Rolls would be easier to protect than the glass coach, although the couple will be riding back in an open carriage, so I don't know.

Kate arriving in one of the amazing Phantom Rolls Royces will be a wonderful experience because the windows and glass roof will allow people to see her more clearly from more angles. Also, these cars are far more spacious (the Glass Carriage is quite cramped in comparison) and so she will be able to alight more gracefully and with a less squashed gown.

Are we sure this whole car instead of the glass coach isn't all just a ruse? Maybe someone at BP broke the glass coach & they don't want everyone to know about it. I smell a coverup!



I joke of course.

Personally I never particularly liked the glass coach anyway, prefer the open ones they use more often for like trooping the colour.

C&C's car got smashed up, which will be of similar make as the one Kate will travel in. The glass coach, will be bulletproof, I can imagine.
Like i've said, I don't see why it has to do with security, or the coach being damaged. But that she just doesn't want to travel in the Glass Coach?

Sarah did look marvellous on her wedding day and that touch was great - enter as a plain Miss Ferguson and leave as a Princess - HRH The Princess Andrew, The Duchess of York etc.

I don't think Kate would do something like that but then again she might do so as she is doing the same thing - arriving as a commoner and leaving as a Princess.

Yes, I remember seeing pics of all of the latest royal brides outside of the churches the day before the event.


Didn't Diana or Sarah practice with a big long curtain (or train) attached to her clothes, since the weight of her wedding train was so heavy? Does anyone else remember that?

Do you think Kate took a page out of the Earl and Countess of Wessex's wedding book? The Countess arrived by car but left by carriage. And I believe the Countess's route to the chapel at Windsor Castle is much shorter than Kate's will be.

That could be it. I do remember that as well...Sophie wearing a white business shirt.

You've seen one British royal wedding you've seen a ton!
