Charlotte is set to receive the iconic Spencer tiara, which previously belonged to her late grandmother, Princess Diana.
Diana famously chose to wear the headpiece on her wedding day to Prince Charles in July 1981.
The glittering tiara is designed in a garland style and features a central heart flanked by continuous running scrolls, interspersed with star and trumpet-shaped flowers. It is set throughout with circular and rose-cut, cushion, and pear-shaped diamonds, mounted in gold.
The tiara was inherited by Diana’s father John Spencer, 8th Earl Spencer in the mid-seventies and, as such, remains in the Spencer family.
It went on display in London in 2022, at which time Charlotte’s inheritance was also confirmed.
A description placed alongside the tiara read, in part: “In the mid-1970s, John Spencer, the 8th Earl Spencer, inherited the tiara. It was subsequently worn by all three of his daughters at their wedding: Lady Jane in 1978; Lady Sarah in 1980; and finally, Lady Diana the following year, in 1981.
“The tiara was most recently worn by Celia McCorquodale – niece of the 10th Earl Spencer Charles – at her wedding in the Spring of 2018. The Spencer Tiara is now set to be inherited by Princess Charlotte.”
It comes as Charlotte prepares to step into the spotlight alongside her two brothers at the coronation of their grandfather King Charles.
The Princess and her older sibling, Prince George, are likely to attend the ceremony itself when it takes place on 6 May at Westminster Abbey.
