Each of the three Cambridge children has become a fan favourite. From their first debuts at the steps of St. Mary’s Hospital to their first debut at a royal event, the trio almost always manages to steal the spotlight. I mean who can resist their adorable charm and charisma!
So, the world has taken a special interest in the lives of these three royals, with lots of fans speculating on what the future holds for them. One question royal fans have is for Prince William and Kate’s only daughter, Princess Charlotte. Many fans want to know when the Princess will start wearing a tiara, and when royal women, like her mother, are banned from wearing them.
The Rules Princess Charlotte Will Have To Follow
As the daughter of the future king, Princess Charlotte has tons of rules that she will have to follow in her life.
Royal children don’t sit with their parents and other adults at the dinner table. It is an honour they get only when they have mastered the art of dinnertime conversations with others and the art of polite conversation.
Being a princess means she will have to learn how to curtsy well, and that being pretty soon. She has most likely already started lessons on it as she will be expected to curtsy to her great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, soon.
When Will Princess Charlotte Start Wearing Tiara?
The tiara is one of the most stunning and noticeable items in a royals outfit, when should we expect Princess Charlotte to don one?
London jewelry expert Geoffrey Munn told Town & Country that we will have quite the long wait until we finally see her with a tiara on, as royal women only get to wear them when they are to be a bride or are already married, the tradition states.
“The tiara has its roots in classical antiquity and was seen as an emblem of the loss of innocence to the crowning of love,” he said.
However, former royal butler Grant Harrold reveals that the tradition doesn’t apply to all.
“Single ladies don’t typically wear tiaras unless they are born into the royal family as a princess,” Harrold said via Insider.
Since Charlotte is one, she we might get to see her in one after all, way before she ties the knot just like Princess Margaret and Princess Anne did prior to them walking down the aisle.
So If That’s The Rule For A Princess, What About Duchess Kate?
Kate Middleton must follow a set of rules about tiaras herself. The Duchess of Cambridge cant just thrown on one whenever she pleases because the dazzling accessories are to be worn at special occasions.
Besides their engagement rings, royal ladies aren’t seen with diamonds when going out in public or attending an event during the day and they never have a tiara on. This is, according to Marie Claire, due to diamonds being banned during the day.
“Before 6 p.m., you’ll see metallics, gemstones, pearls, sapphires. At night, you’ll see the diamonds come out, and that’s in order to not come across as flashy in your appearance,” royal etiquette expert Myka Meier explained.
The only exception to this rule is that tiaras can be worn before 6 p.m. for royal weddings.
