While wearing a tiara on your wedding sounds completely over the top, things are different if you’re marrying into the royal family. Tiaras are tradition when it comes to royal weddings, with Kate Middleton donning one as her “something borrowed” from the Queen.
Business Insider reports that Meghan Markle has a lot of options to choose from thanks to the Queen’s well stocked royal collection of tiaras.
Experts believe that Markle might wear the Strathmore Rose tiara or Princess Diana’s iconic Spencer tiara, both of which would suit her well at the wedding; the former would honor tradition and the latter would be a nod to Princess Diana, which is supposed to be a priority for the wedding, according to multiple sources.
While all of these speculations have some back up, Markle and Prince Harry haven’t been that concerned with tradition, so they might design a special tiara for the occasion. No matter their decision, tiaras are expensive, especially royal ones.
