The Princess of Wales has shared details about what she will be wearing for King Charles’s coronation on 6 May, and could it be the biggest hint that we can expect a tiara moment?
Kate enjoyed a joint outing to Birmingham with her husband, Prince William, last week, where the pair were reunited with This Morning host Alison Hammond, after meeting at the BAFTAs earlier this year.
Alison disclosed on Friday’s show that she and Kate had spoken about the coronation, telling viewers: “I said, ‘What are you wearing for the coronation?’ Because I said to her, ‘I’m feeling like you’re going to wear blue.'”
Kate reportedly replied: “There is a hint of blue!”
The comment has had royal fans speculating on social media on which outfit we could see the Princess wear for the historic occasion, but Kate could have also been alluding to another accessory.
At the state banquet and Diplomatic reception last year, the Princess donned a blue sash, which signifies her position as a Dame Grand Cross of the Royal Victorian Order, the highest ranking of chivalry personally awarded by the late Queen Elizabeth II for being in her service.
And royals typically wear their Orders alongside tiaras on formal evening occasions. While Buckingham Palace is yet to confirm details about who will attend the pre-coronation reception on Friday 5 May, that is likely to be the moment when we see the royal ladies wear evening gowns with tiaras and their Orders on display.
Kate has worn three tiaras in her 12 years as a royal – the Cartier Halo on her wedding day, the Lotus Flower wore most recently at the Diplomatic reception, and the Lover’s Knot, which was famously worn by her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana.
