Are other people allowed to wear the Queen’s jewels?

Yes, and we have seen many pieces on Prince William’s wife, Duchess Catherine.

She first did so on the day of her wedding when she rocked the Cambridge Lovers Knot tiara. And we should admit, this gem is one of everyone’s favorites.

Will Meghan Markle wear Queen’s jewels on her wedding day?

Well, it’s highly likely. In fact, many believe she will opt for borrowing the Botswana Flower Brooch that you can see in this photo.

The gem was given to Elizabeth II by Festus Mogae, the President of Botswana. It is encrusted with 11 diamonds and depicts the major crop of the country – millet.

Actually, Botswana plays a significant role in Meghan and Harry’s relationship. In 2017, the royal took his beloved to the country to camp out under the stars.

Besides, the engagement ring that the prince gave to the former actress has a huge stone at the center that hails from Botswana. So, borrowing the brooch will have a special meaning behind it.

As for a tiara, Meghan may wear it as well. But it will not be the same jewelry piece Kate wore at her wedding because it will be on display in Australia.

However, we hope that the American beauty could wear Princess Diana’s diamond tiara, which was given to her brother Charles after her death.
