The ultimate royal rewear! Princess Diana‘s niece Celia Rose McCorquodale got married over the weekend and donned Diana’s iconic wedding tiara at the nuptials. Celia — who is the daughter of Diana’s oldest sister, Lady Sarah McCorquodale — tied the knot with George Woodhouse in Stoke Rochford, England on Saturday, June 16 and wore the Spencer Tiara at her royal wedding.
Diana, of course, famously wore the Spencer Tiara at her July 1981 nuptials to Prince Charles. According to People, the headpiece belongs to Diana’s family and though it has been on display in recent years, the tiara has not been worn publicly by anyone since the People’s Princess’s August 1997 death.
Queen Elizabeth reportedly offered Diana the Queen Mary Lover’s Knot Tiara — which Kate Middleton has worn many times in recent years! — to wear on her royal wedding day but she declined and chose to instead don her family’s Spencer Tiara. Prince William and Prince Harry’s mother allegedly preferred to wear the Spencer Tiara at royal events because it was lighter and easier to wear than other royal family headpieces.
Just one month after their own big day, Meghan and her husband, Harry, were both in attendance at Celia’s wedding on June 16. For the special occasion, Duchess of Sussex Meghan looked gorgeous in a blue and white patterned Oscar de la Renta wrap dress worth $5,490. She accessorized the summery ensemble with white pumps, a white clutch, and a matching fascinator from Marks and Spencer.
