Meghan Markle Put Her Own Twist on the Queen's Crown Jewels
Meghan Markle finally had her princess moment, and a tiara to match.
On Saturday, Meghan walked down the aisle to marry her prince charming, Prince Harry. It was then that the world not only got its first glimpse of Meghan in her wedding dress, but also its first glimpse of the new royal in some borrowed Crown Jewels.
For the big day, the Queen lent Meghan the bandeau tiara, a piece that has grand significance in the royal family.
“The veil is held in place by Queen Mary's diamond bandeau tiara, lent to Ms. Markle by The Queen. The diamond bandeau is English and was made in 1932, with the entire brooch dating from 1893,” Kensington shared in a tweet.
Prior to Meghan and Harry’s wedding the Queen Mary Diamond Bandeau Tiara had been seen with a sapphire as the center stone, but it appears Meghan chose to swap it out for a gigantic diamond for her big day.
The Art Deco design truly shined thanks to Meghan’s choice to wear a simple, understated, yet elegant A-line gown by Givenchy. And really, isn’t this day about letting her newly royal side shine?
