The Duchess of Sussex opens up about the “incredibly timeless” and “modern” royal accessory when royal visitors get to see the actual tiara in person. “I think it was just perfect because it was so clean and simple — and also to that point, an extension of what Clare and I had been trying to do with the dress which was have something that could be so incredibly timeless but still feel modern,” she reveals.

She then gushes more about the piece she wore to complement her white, long sleeve Givenchy gown. “When it came to the tiara on the day, I was very fortunate to be able to choose this gorgeous art deco style bandeau tiara,” she says in the recording. “Harry and I had gone to Buckingham Palace to meet with Her Majesty The Queen to select one of the options that were there, which was an incredibly surreal day as you can imagine.” What a fun day!
