Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge’s Wedding Day Tiara
Since Kate and William said “I do,” there has been a run on royal tiaras at Bridal Styles! In fact, we received so many requests for an elegant bridal crown similar to Kate’s ‘Halo’ tiara that we were inspired to create one.
Created in 1936 by Cartier, the Halo Scroll tiara was purchased by Prince Albert for his wife, the Queen Mother Elizabeth, who only wore it a few times. After ascending the throne, as Queen Mother she had access to the royal vaults (and the spectacular tiaras inside). So, she gifted the Halo to her daughter (and future queen) Elizabeth on her 18th birthday. Queen Elizabeth has never worn it publicly, instead lending it to her sisters to enjoy.
In fact, the Halo has been used as a kind of starter tiara for the royal family, gracing the heads of both Princess Margaret and Princess Anne at royal events until their own tiara collections grew.
So, as Kate walked down the aisle, we saw the elegant, perfectly sized diadem she’ll wear to tiara-required events until she acquires her own.
At Bridal Styles, we think every woman should have her own tiara…and love the idea that the first is just one of many.
