Princess of Wales, Diana wasn’t famous for her love of bling. She was famous from the moment she said ‘yes’ to Prince Charles’ proposal.
From there, doors were opened for Diana to a calendar of jewel-strewn Royal events.
Over the past years, Diana blended the Royal tradition with her own flair. She created some of the most iconic looks of the modern British Royal Family. The Royal UK has rounded up some of the most incredible pieces from Princess Diana’s jewellery box. Most of them, she left in her will to Prince William and Prince Harry. It specified that they were to be worn by their future wives.
Princess of Wales, Diana, really loved jewellery – and few wore it better than she did. Today, her sons’ wives, Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle, are fans of predominantly fine, understated jewels, reserving Diana’s favourite statement pieces only for the most magnificent of occasions.

The Cambridge Lover’s Knot Tiara
This tiara was first owned by Queen Elizabeth’s grandmother, Queen Mary. It is made from 19 pearl drops and assorted diamonds that all came from pieces of jewellery given to her as wedding presents. Queen Elizabeth inherited the tiara, and only wore it once in public. Then she gave it to Diana as her wedding present. Diana wore it on many occasions.
