The Many Tiaras From Royal Weddings


The Many Tiaras From Royal Weddings
We round up our favourite tiaras worn by royals and share the fascinating stories behind the stunning headpieces.

From the dress, to the flowers, to the tiara, Princess Beatrice was the picture of perfection at her surprise wedding. The Queen’s granddaughter not only borrowed her wedding dress from her grandmother, but her stunning tiara, too.

The beautiful diamond was first made for Queen Mary out of a diamond necklace gifted by Queen Victoria for her wedding. Queen Elizabeth wore it to her own wedding to Prince Philip in 1947 and, according to People, had it especially saved for Beatrice who she is “exceptionally close” with.

The tiara famously broke when Queen Elizabeth was on the way to her wedding. The court jeweller was quickly summoned and repaired it in time for the ceremony.

For her marriage to Jack Brooksbank in 2018, Beatrice’s sister Princess Eugenie wore a striking emerald tiara which was also lent to her by her grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II.

The tiara was made in 1919 for British philanthropist Margaret Greville, who bequeathed the tiara to the Queen’s mother. The exquisite emerald in the centre is an incredible 93.7 carats.

For her wedding day, Meghan Markle adorned Queen Mary’s beautiful bandeau tiara, which belonged to the Queen’s grandmother.

The diamond and platinum bandeau was designed around the central stone brooch, which features 10 stunning diamonds.

The Duchess of Cambridge opted for a Cartier Halo Tiara on her wedding day.

The tiara is another one of Queen Elizabeth’s collection, first purchased by Elizabeth’s father, King George VI for his wife and gifted to Elizabeth on her 18th birthday.

The Queen’s eldest granddaughter, Zara Tindall wore a Greek key-patterned tiara on her wedding day.

The piece, often referred to as Princess Andrew’s Meander Tiara, came from Princess Anne’s collection and once belonged to Prince Philip’s mother, Princess Andrew of Greece.

Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, ditched the tiara for a striking gold headpiece made by haute-couture hat designer Philip Treacy.

The wide-brimmed creamed-coloured straw hat was overlaid with ivory French lace and gold feathers.

Crown Princess Mary of Sweden completed her wedding look with an enchanting diamond tiara, which was gifted by her in-laws.

The diadem features five peaks with pearl tips alongside small diamond prongs.

Princess Diana wore her family’s Spencer tiara on her wedding day in 1981.

The striking headpiece had been passed down her family for almost a century and went through many changes over the years. When Diana wore the family heirloom, it featured diamond ‘tulips’, stars and scrolls.

After her wedding, it became one of Princess Diana’s favourite jewellery pieces and she frequently wore it to royal events.
