An Awkward Question: Why Can't Meghan Markle Wear A Tiara, While Kate Can?

Date January 29, 2018 07:14

The wife of the Duke of Cambridge has already managed to successfully overcome the royal nuances, but Meghan Markle is still to encounter everything from the very beginning. For example, according to royal etiquette rules, Meghan Markle will have to bow before all members of the royal family, including Kate Middleton. While only those who do not belong to royal blood will bow before her in courtesy.


However, there are other nuances to consider, as well. According to royal protocol, Meghan can't wear one of the most beautiful royal attributes - a tiara. The reason is that only married women have the honor of wearing it.


That's why Kate Middleton has the right to wear the charming pearl tiara of Princess Diana or the family gown of Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon. However, the royal family likes to break traditions.


At her wedding to Prince William, Kate was honored to wear an antique diamond tiara with a wedding veil. By the way, a crown was brought from the court treasury for Princess Diana, as well. Will the grandmother-queen break the rules of protocol for her young grandson? Time will tell...
