A few years ago, after marrying Prince Harry, Meghan was finally able to live one of the greatest perks of being a royal ie wear a tiara.
In honour of that occasion, we have the 5 most gorgeous wedding tiaras of all time.
Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother. (Wedding date: April 26, 1923)
For her bridal portraits, the Queen Mother wore the Strathmore tiara, which was a wedding gift from her father, the Earl of Strathmore. The gift dates back to the late nineteenth century, and it features a garland of roses set with rose-cut diamonds.
Queen Elizabeth. (Wedding date: November 20, 1947)
Her Majesty wore Queen Mary’s Russian Fringe tiara on her wedding day. This piece of jewellery was made for Queen Mary in 1919 and can be worn as a necklace or atop the head. Queen Elizabeth famously broke her piece of jewellery on her wedding day but was quickly repaired.

Princess Margaret. (Wedding date: May 6, 1960)
Princess Margaret wore the Poltimore Tiara on her wedding day. It was purchased as Princess Margaret’s engagement to Antony Armstrong-Jones was announced. Garrard created the special jewellery in the 1870s for Lady Florence Poltimore. Sadly, the gorgeous piece was sold after Margaret’s death at auction in 2006.
