Meghan Markle Will Have Access To This Precious Thing Only After The Wedding With Prince Harry

Almost the entire planet knows about the soon-to-be-epic Royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and patiently waits for May to come and the event to happen. The couple, who announced their engagement on 27th November, will marry at St. George’s Chapel on the Windsor Castle grounds in May 2018.

However, let’s now reflect on the things that Kate has access to and Meghan doesn’t. At least until she says ‘I do.’ While she might already have the hair of a princess, there is one precious royal item that is still out of her reach: A tiara.

Well, who knows, maybe the Suits star has a plan to change another long-running British royal tradition. Duchess Catherine of Cambridge often wears tiaras at state dinners, that are part of the royal collection.

According to The Daily Mail, this is because of the fact that the tiaras are actually only reserved for the married women.

Princess Diana was fond of her tiaras as well.

This tradition dates back centuries to the time when only married women were allowed to wear tiaras, according to Diana Mather, a senior tutor for etiquette consultancy The English Manner. “The old rule is that hats are never worn indoors after 6 pm, because that is when the ladies changed into evening dress, and tiaras and the family jewels would come out. Flashy diamonds and tiaras are not worn during the day, and only married ladies wear tiaras,” she told the BBC.

Of course, this rule will also apply to Markle. There is another reason for wearing tiaras and that is a clarification of one’s relationship status. Etiquette expert Grant Harold told BBC: “For married ladies, it was a sign of status and would show you were taken and not looking for a husband. For the gentleman, it was a clear sign not to make advances toward the lady in question.”

“She will have access to jewels from the royal collection made available to her by the Queen,” the My Husband and I author explained.

“She can choose something suitable, but she might also have the Spencer tiara, which is also Harry’s heritage and is the one Diana wore on her wedding day.”

Supposedly, on her wedding day, Meghan will wear the 1000 piece diamond tiara, bought as an anniversary gift by King George VI for his wife in 1936.

Although, the soon-to-be Duchess of Sussex could buck the tradition.

According to Us Weekly, the couple has made a name for themselves by breaking the rules. For instance, they were together on Christmas day, something that Kate didn’t do until after the wedding with William.

They also are showing affection in public and that was rarely seen before. Let’s wait and see if the couple breaks yet another rule or tradition before the wedding.
