Princess Diana’s iconic marriage ceremony day tiara has occupied an area in our psychological fairytale archives for years—I imply, have you ever seen it?
There was early hypothesis that Meghan Markle would don the tiara in query for her marriage ceremony to the late Princess’s son, Prince Harry, however that didn’t come to cross for a quite simple purpose: the topper belongs to the Spencer household. (Markle ended up carrying Queen Mary’s Filigree Tiara as an alternative.)
The Spencer Tiara has graced the heads of Spencer brides because it entered the household in 1919—making notable appearances at each of Diana’s sisters’ weddings: Woman Sarah McCorquodale in 1980 and Woman Jane Fellowes in 1978 (pictured under), in addition to Earl Charles Spencer’s 1989 marriage ceremony to Victoria Aitken (additionally under).
On Saturday, the tiara made its first public look since Diana’s 1997 demise, gracing the top of the late Princess’s 29-year-old niece, Celia McCorquodale.
McCorqodale wed George Woodhouse in a ceremony attended by the newly minted Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
Apparently, this isn’t the primary marriage ceremony of a Spencer descendant since Diana’s demise. Celia’s older sister, Emily, wed James Hutt in 2012, and whereas she did put on a tiara for the event, it was not the Spencer Tiara.
It’s unclear why Celia was chosen as the primary to put on the tiara since Diana’s demise, but it surely’s little question a excessive honor.
