Five months have passed since Harry and Meghan’s royal wedding on May 19 when Meghan wore a tiara.
For the wedding she wore the Queen Mary Diamond Bandeau Tiara. The English tiara, which features diamonds set in platinum, was made in 1932 and features a center detachable brooch made of ten diamonds dating back to 1893.
Now, in ten days, the couple will start their first royal tour to Australia, Fiji, the Kingdom of Tonga, and New Zealand.
The President of Fiji will host a state dinner. Harry will have a speech at the event and both he and his wife will be expected to wear formal evening attire for the occasion. So Meghan may wear a tiara again.
Ahead of the wedding, it was speculated Meghan might wear the Spencer Tiara; the one Diana wore on her special day. So maybe now she will opt for one of Diana’s tiaras.
Or maybe she will opt for some of Queen Elizabeth II tiaras. We’ll just have to wait and see.
There are strict rules that the royal ladies must respect when it comes to wearing tiara.
They can’t wear tiaras before 6pm. Royal expert Grant Harrold told them diamond tiaras are strictly evening attire, sand can’t be worn in the daytime.
However the rule can be lifted for very special occasions, for example their own Royal Wedding.
Duchess Catherine has only worn a tiara five times besides her own royal wedding: thrice for state banquets, once for an annual winter party at Buckingham Palace, and once for Chinese president Xi Jinping and his wife Peng Liyuan’s visit to the U.K.
Meghan and Harry are starting their two-weeks tour on October 16. Their official visit overseas will begin in Sydney, followed by Dubbo, Melbourne and Fraser Island.
