Only a true princess would have such a stunning piece as her “something borrowed”. For her special day, the glowing Kate wore a Cartier tiara that belongs to the Queen. The Queen was given this magnificent accessory by her mother the Queen Mum on the occasion of her 18th birthday.
The late Queen Mother
The “halo” tiara, made in 1936, was originally purchased by the Duke of York for his wife (also called Queen Elizabeth) three weeks before he became King George VI.
