In 2011 and 2012 William was still full-time military, so as you say only part time in Royal appearances.
Why would they attend the diplomatic dinner, Harry hasn't attended before and the Queen's other children are not attending now. I think it has become a heirs event, because just a few years ago, royals like Princess Alexandra attended.

Either way, they suit her beautifully, and I'm sure will get a lot of use over the years.
The only reason I thought maybe the set was from Charles is it is said he gifted Kate with a set upon her marriage...and the price tag (over 200,000) seemed more like a Charles gift to me. Also seems like I read somewhere Charles likes to give Cartier ...no idea if that is true or not.

I know, it could have been either of them. I don't suppose we'll ever know, but whoever chose those has excellent taste!

After watching the wedding video again, I must say I don't like it as wedding tiara, or in general really. The central element gives me that "cyclops" feeling and I find the design old-fashioned.


For a wedding tiara, I would prefer a more subdued bandeau (like Queen Paola's bandeau worn by Princess Mathilde) or, if the bride wants a bigger and sparkling tiara, maybe a fringe tiara as Queen Mary's fringe worn by QEII at her wedding. Princess Madeleine's modern fringe is probably my favorite wedding tiara ever.

Do we have a Duchess of Sussex Jewels thread, yet? If so, I couldn't find it. The Cartier set would be a great way to start it off!

I am waiting to see, if she continues to wear it, if they change the stone out with a colored stone (depending on event) or a different diamond brooch.

Seeing as how the tiara was made in the 30's I guess it could be considered old fashioned...but IMO these art deco pieces generally are always 'modern'.

The tiara is stunning and regal. I was not disappointed by her choice. Happy to this tiara again.
I can only repeat - well played Ms. Markle - now HRH D. of Sussex - I loved the dress and the tiara. Definitely less is more. I really hope to see this tiara now in regular use - not like the Cartier Halo which hasn't been seen since the wedding of D. of Cambridge....

If I am not mistaken, Harry did attend last year. And even if he did not, I would expect him & Meghan to start attending regularly now. It is a large event, and needs to have a reasonable contingent of Windsors to cover the guests. So I suspect you will see the 7 main players (HM, C&C. W&C, H&M), plus the other chikdren of the Queen and their spouses.

No, he didn't. Looks like only Prince Charles with the Duchess of Cornwall and Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were there.

Since we rarely (almost never) see photos of the event, I don't think we actually know who attends.

No, we don't see pictures from the event (besides that one from 2016? I think), but we see people arriving to BP.

Also worth mentioning that Harry was seen at the Henry Van Straubenzee Memorial Fund carol concert last year that was happening on the same day.

I was thinking the same thing!
That would make the tiara very versatile, especially if this is her long-term tiara.

I suspect it will be...there are so few tiara events and she will never have a need for another one really. She might pick up the use of a different one (Like Sophie) but hard to know.

Do you really think that for the next 30 years Meghan will wear the same tiara everytime she needs one? She might just get bored with this one after a while.

Even if there are multiple tiaras to choose from, which is not Meghan's situation, most tiara wearers tend to have one or two that are favorites, either because they fit better, or are lighter in weight, or whatever. And if you are only wearing a tiara once a year or so, I'm not sure it matters.

If you wear it maybe twice a year and it goes with most everything what's to be bored with?

That does not seem to bother the Duchess of Cornwall.
