What jewellery will Meghan Markle wear during the royal wedding?
It’s almost time for one of the most highly anticipated weddings of all time. The former Suits star, Meghan Markle, is about to walk down the aisle and marry Prince Harry. The Royal wedding will take place on Saturday, 19 May at St George’s Chapel in the grounds of Windsor Castle. There’s a lot of talk about the guests, food and Meghan’s wedding dress, but what jewellery will she wear during the royal ceremony? According to an insider the former actress will walk down the aisle with the Queen Mother’s jewels, amongst others.
1. A DIAMOND TIARA
The Strathmore Rose tiara is said to compliment Meghan’s unique style.
Historically throughout the year’s royal princesses have worn diamond tiaras on their wedding day. With that being said, it can be expected that Meghan will be wearing a tiara on her wedding day to Prince Harry. Like many previous royal weddings, a diamond tiara is the perfect touch to the overall look of the bride. But which tiara from the royal collection will Meghan decide to wear on during the ceremony? According to a source, Meghan might wear the Strathmore Rose tiara or perhaps decide to go for a unique style to match her diamond engagement ring.
The extraordinary floral-inspired diamond tiara once belonged to Lady Elizabeth Bowes Lyon, who received the royal jewel from her parents when she married the Duke of York in 1923. The Strathmore Rose tiara hasn’t been seen for years and is currently placed in palace vaults. The five large jewelled flower tiara is said to be the perfect fit for Meghan, according to her personal style.
2. DIAMOND EARRINGS
Meghan has always been a huge fan of elegant diamond earrings.
If you look back at Meghan’s public attendances she has always been fond of elegant and classic style diamond earrings. The former actress and soon-to-be bride showcased subtle gold and opal diamond stud earrings on the day she announced her engagement. She also wore Snowflake Large Round Jacket earrings to both the Queen’s holiday lunch at Buckingham Palace and to Christmas Day church services at St Mary Magdalene Church in Sandringham.
Based on her previous appearances and style options it has been said that Meghan will opt for a pair of diamond and akoya pearl earrings in white gold or perhaps borrow a pair of earrings from the Queen’s extensive royal jewellery collection. “She will have access to jewels from the royal collection made available to her by the Queen,” expert Ingrid Seward told Us Weekly.
3. DIAMOND BROOCH
Besides her engagement ring, Meghan might be wearing a jewellery item linked to Botswana.
If taking inspiration from the Queen, there might be a slight chance that Meghan will borrow a significant diamond flower brooch from Botswana. Not only is the beautiful jewellery piece part of the Queen’s collection, but it was a gift from the President of Botswana, Festus Mogae himself. The brooch is made of gold and 11 pear-shaped diamonds and was given to the Queen in 2007. The last time Her Majesty was seen wearing the remarkable piece of jewellery was at a Highland Spring factory visit on 6 July 2017.
For those who might not know, Botswana plays an extremely important role in Prince Harry’s life. He took Meghan to the African country back in April last year where they camped under the stars and fell in love. There’s no denying Botswana remains a significant destination to the couple.
4. THE DIAMOND ENGAGEMENT RING
Meghan will most likely receive a gold wedding band to go with her engagement ring.
Meghan’s diamond engagement ring is truly remarkable and one-of-a-kind. The centre stone hails from Botswana where the side diamonds of the engagement ring are from Prince Harry’s late mother Princess Diana’s personal collection. The sentimental ring will most likely be accommodated by a wedding band made from rare Welsh gold. Historically royal brides received wedding rings made by golden nuggets of Clogau St David’s mine at Bontddu, North Wales for almost 88 years.
If the royal wedding is anything like Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton and Prince William’s, we simply can’t wait for the ceremony to take place. The couple is scheduled to say, ‘I do’ on Saturday, 19 May 2018. With the royal arrangements taking place, we’re looking forward to seeing Meghan in a variety of remarkable diamond jewellery during the royal wedding.
