They were here already engaged, and all magazines wrote how pity this it that she went to so many weddings while she would never marry!

Not to continue down an off-topic topic, but I wouldn't be surprised if Camilla's choice of jewelry is due in great part to Charles' influence. 

But it is also probably due to practicality.  The Queen is a bit careful when loaning out her own regular pieces, and Camilla can't very well wear anything that Diana regularly wore.  That leaves with two collections to choose from:  either the dusty pieces that have been locked up in vaults for decades because the Queen herself doesn't seem to prefer them, or the pieces that the Queen Mother held during her lifetime.  And both collections seem to be comprised mostly of huge, ancient looking pieces.

Good point Chris!

But they are still horrible :)




Hats looks on her really good!



Camilla was pretty.

Thomas, The "Greek Key" or meander tiara now belonged to the Princess Royal who wore it a lot, so there is a no go. The loop tiara , which is the one the Queen like to wear a lot (used to belong to Miechen, Grand Duchess Marie Paulovna the elder, grandmother of Princess Marina, Duchess of Kent), so Kate would not get that either. She need one she could wear (like Diana got the lovers-knot tiara & emerald necklace before her marriage, but chose to wear her own family tiara instead). I think the Queen Mother Cartier scroll or Cambridge cresent are the best choices.  :)

As for the dress, the current fashion is the more slim dress (rather than the bell shaped one Diana wore) with a bussle and train. That would flatter her figure and long hair. She could look like a Norman or Saxon bride...

Well...we are all old fashioned to root for royalty !  ;)

I wonder if Kate would have her long hair up or let it drape on her shoulders.  :D

I agree that the Cartier scroll would fit a modern princess like Catherine perfectly. However it had not seen the light of day since the late Princess Margaret had worn it...The crescent tiara (which come from Mary of Cambridge, Duchess of Teck if I am not mistaken) would be lovely too. I think part of that tiara is detatchable. It can do double duty for Catherine.
Princess Anne often wore the Cartier scroll tiara in her late teens/early twenties including for a state opening of parliment.... by then her aunt had given up wearing it.

The second tiara that Camilla is wearing looks like she wants to be Pope due the golden arch in the rear of the photo.

But the Cartier scroll is not hers like the Greek Key or meander that was "given" to her right ? Not sure about that.  ???

The Cartier scroll is thought to have been just loaned to her as it was to Princess Margaret.

Plus, as is always remarked, who knows what treasures lurk in the royal vaults ready to be brought back to light in original condition or reset in a more modern way?

Hi,

My 2 cents:-

I think that The Queen should entitle William as Duke of Cambridge..
This would link him back to his ancestors The Duke of Cambridge, his 4 times great grandfather and his daughter Mary Adelaide of Cambridge from whom they're all descended....

Also, the tiara that The Queen wore on her wedding day would link Catherine to her, strickly in a 'jewelled' way..
And, the tiara is modest enough to be demure and grand enough (in a royal fringed way) to make a statement...

What do you think - - am I off base here or does it make sense???
