The only thing more exciting for the fashion obsessed than speculating about what dress Meghan Markle will be wearing on her wedding day is trying to figure out what tiara she will choose to accessorize it with. While protocol dictates unmarried non-royals can’t wear a sparkling headpiece, all bets are off once it’s time to walk down the aisle. So when Meg ties the knot with Prince Harry at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor on Saturday, May 19, she will likely be sporting one of jewel-encrusted crowns from the Royal Family’s collection.
While she’ll have a lot to choose from in the vast royal collection, we know one famous diadem she will definitely not be wearing: the Cartier Halo design Queen Elizabeth II loaned to Kate Middleton for her April 2011 nuptials is currently on display at the National Gallery of Australia as part of a Cartier exhibition and, therefore, out of the running. While the delicate scroll design (which features 739 brilliant diamonds and another 149 baton stones and was a gift from King George VI to his wife Elizabeth) is breathtaking and perfectly complemented Kate’s Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen gown, we have a feeling Meg would prefer to do her own thing for her big day.
