The Queen's Fringe tiara tipped to be Kate's headpiece

Wednesday April 27, 2011 readers have had their say regarding which tiara Kate should wear for her momentous walk down the aisle. 

Diana’s crowning glory – the Spencer Tiara – was the clear winner.

But it's another classic that has recently been tipped as the headpiece that will adorn the Princess-to-be on April 29.

Commentators believe she will wear the Fringe tiara.

This was lent to Queen Elizabeth II for her nuptials in 1947 by the Queen Mother, who also loaned it to Princess Anne for her wedding in 1973.

Made in 1919 for Queen Mary, the tiara was created using diamonds that came from a necklace which was a present from her mother Queen Victoria.

According to the Royal Collection, the tiara is not – as many sources claim – made from diamonds that belonged to King George III prompting many to refer to it as the King George III tiara.
