Style is everything! For Meghan Markle’s May 19th wedding to Prince Harry, style is probably one of the most important factors for the young couple. Whatever Meghan wears will live on for a long time in the fashion history books.
Whether Ms. Markle wears a long sleeve wedding dress or something decidedly more American, the question remains: will she wear a tiara? The answer is a little more complicated than you might think. Every bride at a major royal wedding since the Queen Mother has worn some sort of tiara. However, Meghan, who is not British or royal by blood, may choose a different route. Because we’re completely obsessed with everything royal wedding, we certainly hope she stays with tradition!
Here are our top crown jewels we think Meghan Markle may wear:
The Strathmore Rose Tiara
This crown might be perfect for the American bride. The crown, which features rose-cut diamonds, was originally presented to the Queen Mother, then the Duchess of York on her wedding day by her father. It has not been worn by any other royal since.
The Spencer Tiara
Although not technically in the royal collection, Diana wore her family’s heirloom to her wedding to Prince Charles.
The Cartier Bandeau
The Queen Mother’s Cartier Bandeau, which is made of three gem-set bracelets on a bandeau frame would be the perfect diadem for Ms. Markle. Sleek and decidedly modern, this royal heirloom would be the sparkliest of all pieces.
However, there is a possibility that a new tiara could be commissioned for Meghan Markle’s wedding day. The piece could be completely new – signifying a fresh change within the monarchy for the modern era – or it could be a refashioning of an older piece of jewelry from the royal collection. Either way, we can’t wait to see what glittering jewel Meghan Markle will wear on her big day.
