The British were looking forward to the coronation, wondering in what magnificent dress and what jewels Kate Middleton would appear before the public on such a solemn occasion.
Perhaps the greatest curiosity of the fans was the question of which tiara the wife of Prince William will appear in. After all, as everyone thought, in accordance with her rank, she simply could not appear without this status decoration at such a solemn event.
In any case, this has never happened before.
Fans were almost certain that Kate would choose one of her two favorite tiaras, which she often wears to formal receptions and banquets.
However, Kate’s fans were disappointed. According to the information that has appeared, the princess will appear at the ceremony without a tiara at all.
Rumor has it that she might even refuse her evening attire! This was reported by People.
Although the fact that Kate will be without a tiara has not yet been officially confirmed. According to the royal jeweler, he still has not received instructions to fix any of the tiaras for Middleton.
But he always cleans and, if necessary, repairs jewelry before such important events. So that antique jewelry shines as brightly as possible and looks like it was made just yesterday.
As already reported, Charles decided to stick to tradition strictly, selecting for the ceremony the crown of St. Edward, made back in the 17th century, which has always been used for coronations since then.
At the same time, Camilla, as it became known, like Kate, also decided to take a chance and break the customs.
According to tradition, for the coronation of the wives of monarchs, a new crown was ordered each time. While Camilla ordered to prepare for her for the ceremony the crown of Queen Mary, made at the beginning of the last century.
As for Kate, her intention to do without a tiara is most likely due to the desire to look as modest as possible – in the spirit of the times.
After all, the ceremony itself will take place, in comparison with the coronation of Elizabeth, according to a much less pretentious scenario.
