The jewels on display at the wedding of Prince Harry and American actress Meghan Markle had us in awe.
The bride's tiara, in particular, was stunning, sparkly and of historical significance.
The beautiful detailed Queen Mary diamond tiara was loaned to Meghan to her by Prince Harry’s grandmother the Queen.
The tiara was specifically made for the Queen's grandmother Queen Mary in 1932 to accommodate the detachable brooch, which was given to Mary as a wedding present in 1893 by the County of Lincoln.
The magnificent floral-shaped suspended brooch in the centre is made of a large round diamond surrounded by nine smaller circular diamonds.
The bandeau is a flexible band of 11 intricate glittering sections, pierced with interlaced ovals and pave set with large and small brilliant diamonds. The bandeau and the brooch were bequeathed by Queen Mary to her granddaughter the Queen on her death in 1953.
