Royal Wedding ~ 6 Wedding Tiara Possibilities

May 18, 2018

Tomorrow is the big day and we know quite a bit, things like the flavor of the wedding cake, who the florist is, the venue of the wedding and BOTH wedding reception/parties. But there are three questions everyone is waiting to be answered, who designed the wedding dress, what does it look like and what tiara will the bride wear or will she even wear a tiara. Today we are going to take a look at some of the possibilities as far as choices Meghan Markle has in tiaras. Now, the jewelry vaults of the British royal family are VAST, Queen Elizabeth has a massive collection of jewelry at her disposal and a lot of it, especially tiaras, she loans out to other members of the royal family to wear on special occasions. In the past, she has loaned wedding tiaras to her daughter, Princess Anne and granddaughter-in-law Kate Middleton, in 1986 the Queen and Prince Philip purchased a tiara for their new daughter-in-law Sarah Ferguson. Today I’ve gathered images of 6 tiaras that I think are possibilities, all of them unique in their design as well as being antique pieces of jewelry. One of the tiaras doesn’t belong to the Queen but does have a strong connection to Prince Harry. So, join me for a look at the possible crowns that will grace the head tomorrow of the newest royal bride and the beautiful design that has gone into all of them. Enjoy!!! (above via)
