Doesn't India look lovely and wonderful to see Lady Pamela too.

And the DM referred to her as Lady India Hicks at least the got her godfathers name correct.

I suppose she'll be able to wear the family tiaras now that she's a no longer in-her-words 'sinful woman'.

Guess we shall see!

She was not able to wear it before? I suppose there will be few occassions where to wear a tiara for her. When was the last time her mother was seen with one?

She didn't wear a tiara to her wedding, so I don't think that she has a great interest in tiara-wearing.

When did Lady Pamela stop to act as LiW? She hasn't been seen with a tiara since then, apart from her own wedding and the coronation, afaik. And neither her daughter-in-law nor her daughter Edwina have been seen wearing one (apart from Edwina wearing it as a bride).

Are we sure the tiara is still in the Family. Perhaps it was sold like so many of the other Family Jewels.

I was actually thinking that too and from memory wasn't the Mountbatten tiara sold off ?

This diamond and pearl is believed to still be owned by Lady Pamela. but it hasn't been seen worn since the Wedding of her daughter Edwina in 1984.

The famous diamond tiara was indeed auctioned at Sotherby's in 2002, I think. But there is nothing known about a sale of the diamond and pearl tiara which Edwina wore in 1984. If that one is gone as well, there might have been the possibility to loan the famous star tiara from the Knatchbull cousins. It was last seen in 2016 at the wedding of The Hon. Alexandra Knatchbull.
But I tend to believe that India is a unconventional and independent spirit who prefered a more low-key wedding look. On the other hand her gown was very classy and elegant and would have gone well with a tiara, imho.

Just a little under 40 years and hopefully still in the family.

On either her podcast or an article where she and Lady P had to go hunt down some of the family jewelry India mentions tiaras, how they were traditionally only worn by married women, and how that put her out of the running. I suppose it was tongue-in-cheek since unmarried women do sometimes wear them now. It does actually imply that there is something she could wear.

I can understand not wanting one for your wedding at the parish church, but it will be interesting if her position changes at all.
