The Most Stunning Royal Tiaras Of All Time

According to ancient tradition, members of the British royal family are not allowed to wear tiaras until they are married. This is why we hadn’t seen Meghan Markle in one until the big day when she married Prince Harry. In celebration of all things royal, we’re presenting some of the most gorgeous tiara moments in the British monarchy’s history. We’ll see some of these tiaras make repeat appearances over the years.

Queen Elizabeth II became Head of the Commonwealth in 1952 after her father, King George VI, died. In the time since, she’s amassed a huge number of jaw-dropping tiaras and is thought to have one of the most extensive collections in the world.

Pictured here are Elizabeth and Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, on their wedding day in 1947. The tiara she wore had formerly belonged to Queen Mary, her grandmother.
