The tradition started many years ago with Queen Mary, and continued through the generations with the Queen Mother, the Queen and Princess Anne.
I am of course referring to the tradition of wearing what is known as the Russian Fringe Tiara that has adorned Royal Brides in years gone by. The big question though is whether or not Kate Middleton will be allowed to wear it, as it has never been worn by a "commoner" before.
It would of course be "something borrowed" as it has been on previous occasions, however should she wear it, it would show the world that she has been "accepted" and the Sovereign are very much in touch with their people. A lovely touch I feel.
The tiara was made in 1919 for Queen Mary, and is formally known as the George III Tiara.
There is of course another train of thought which goes as follows. Prince William and Prince Harry inherited their mothers jewels, Kate may choose to wear one of Diana’s tiaras. A favourite of hers was a pearl drop tiara. As we know, pearls are a classical look for any bride.
Which ever she chooses to wear, I am sure we will all agree she will look beautiful. We at Joseph Sterling wish them all the luck in the world. Enjoy the day!!
