Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been invited to King Charles’ coronation on Saturday, May 6, but it is unknown at this time whether they will go.
In the most recent episode of HELLORight !’s Royal Podcast, Majesty Magazine’s Editor Joe Little hinted that coronets might be worn by members of the royal family if Harry and Meghan decide to attend the historic event, giving Meghan another chance to don a tiara.
Royal ladies who are qualified to don tiaras at the coronation will actually be donning coronets, a tiny crown made up of decorations fastened to a metal ring.
Coronets are similar to tiaras, but they differ in that they create a full halo on the head while a tiara only creates a crescent moon.
Joe went on to say that wearing a tiara (or coronet) necessitates royal ladies donning proper formal attire, usually a long dress.
Meghan will not be wearing a tiara for the first time at the coronation, despite having the legal right to do so. On her wedding day, the Duchess of Sussex wore the exquisite diamond bandeau tiara of Queen Mary.
The mesmerizing piece, which dates to 1932, is adorned with a floral-shaped detachable brooch that was given to the Queen’s grandmother, Queen Mary, as a wedding gift by the County of Lincoln in 1893.
The bandeau portion of the tiara is made up of 11 intricate, glittering sections, including ovals and pave set with large and small diamonds. The centerpiece is surrounded by nine smaller diamonds.
