The exquisite diamond tiara originally worn by Princess Diana in 1981 was recently worn by Celia McCorquodale on her wedding day.


When Celia McCorquodale, the niece of the late Princess Diana, walked down the aisle last Saturday, she wore the same tiara adorned by her aunt on her wedding day 20 years ago, as reported by Harper’s Bazaar.

McCorquodale is the daughter of 63-year-old Lady Sarah, who is the eldest sister of Princess Diana. On June 16, McCorquodale tied the knot with George Woodhouse at a church in Stoke Rochford in Lincolnshire.

The 29-year-old bride looked beautiful in a traditional wedding dress, and the famous tiara that sat on the veil completed her royal look.

The tiara was first seen on Princess Diana’s head on the day of her wedding to Prince Charles in 1981, after which it was also worn by the Princess’ sisters Jane and Sarah on their wedding days.


According to Pop Sugar, the bandeau was also adorned by Victoria Lockwood, the former wife of Princess Diana’s brother Charles.

The bejeweled accessory is said to have been treasured by the Spencer family for over a hundred years. As reported by The Court Jeweller, the tiara is said to have been gifted to Princess Diana’s grandmother Lady Cynthia Hamilton.

Hamilton was presented with the diamond headpiece on the day of her wedding to Albert, Viscount Althorp in 1919.


The design of the tiara also has a unique history of its own. It is believed that the topmost part and the left and right ends of the headpiece were designed by Lady Sarah Isabella Spencer, Albert’s great aunt.

The precious stones were embedded in the tiara in the 1930s by the House of Garrard, as reported by Express.

Although there had been talks that Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex may wear the tiara on the day of her wedding to Prince Harry, she was seen wearing Queen Mary’s diamond bandeau.


The honor of wearing the ionic tiara of the late Princess of the People since it was last worn by her in 1997 was bestowed upon McCorquodale.

The wedding ceremony was attended, among other guests, by the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who themselves tied the knot last month.
