The Queen Mary Fringe Tiara

Queen Elizabeth II and Princess Anne both wore The Queen Mary Fringe Tiara on their wedding days, and Her Majesty loaned the piece to her granddaughter, Princess Beatrice of York, for her intimate wedding to Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi. The tiara, which many believe was selected due to both it’s sentimental significance and its all-diamond design, which complemented the bride’s Norman Hartnell gown also on loan from the Queen, marks the first time a modern royal bride has donned a tiara worn by another ancestral royal (let alone two) for her wedding day. According to Town & Country, given Beatrice and Edo’s postponement of a larger-scale celebration due to the pandemic, the Queen likely chose this piece with far greater symbolism in mind: to signify the royal family’s history, as well as solidarity, strength, and endurance.
