The pundits' 'favourite' tiara is the George III (the Russian Fringe tiara) given by the Queen to Kate as a wedding gift ...

Although the diamonds in it are stunning, that tiara is so severe :yikes: :scream: . I can't imagine Kate wearing it as it would age her and give her a more matronly look. I'd much prefer her to wear either The Grand Duchess Vladimir or The Rundell Diamond tiaras :glamor:

Yeah, I'd prefer something open, light and airy, actually I'd like a circlet of flowers :)

Sadly, Friday in London might be windy, rainy, possible thunderstorms 18C.

If so, maybe no open carriage, flypast, shorter balcony viewing.

*sigh*

See, I love that one. Anything sharp and Russian-looking works for me! To me, frilly's old-fashioned or worse, Eighties!

Tips from DM on an english breakfast

Thank you! Glad to see that a Michelin star chef endorses my choice of Heinz beans. :lol:



Unlike Jenny, I am buying pre made Coronation Chicken sandwich filler :lol: (Didnt see your post until Aaron quoted it! Sounds like we'd have a blast as our ideas for this whole she bang are pretty similar!)

Pre-made Coronation Chicken is not an option in these parts my friend! Saveur has what they call an "authentic" recipe - http://www.saveur.com/article/Recipes/Coronation-Chicken - but I'm going the simpler route with just chicken, celery, raisins, curry powder and mayo.



Yeah, thinly sliced white bread, butter, cucumber. In triangular quarters, crusts off ;)

Going through my cookbooks last night (I have about a dozen devoted to tea :cool:), I decided that my cucumber sandwiches will have a bit of mint butter, along with cream cheese.

The third tea sandwich will be one I loved from a now sadly closed local tea shop - tomato and avocado :swoon:. The recipe is from the Savoy Hotel.

When Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden got married last year, everyone was worried when it was announced she would be wearing the Cameo Tiara (http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_KMZsVauhWU4/S_V8i-2KBLI/AAAAAAAAAHg/sL3lCdbE6aE/s1600/SwedenCameoTiara.jpg). It's a big, old fashioned & fussy tiara. No one knew how she'd be able to pull it off. But IMHO, she looked fabulous (http://www.1weddinggift.com/521/swedish-crown-princess-victorias-royal-wedding-speech/). (scroll down for pictures)

Oh agreed! Victoria made that god-awful monstrosity look delicate and lovely, I'm sure Kate can work a bunch of spikes.

IIRC, the George III / Russian Fringe is that same tiara HMQ wore on her wedding day..............the same one that *snapped* in half and had to be repaired the morning of the ceremony! :lol:

The article suggests that the woman who placed the bet might have had some inside knowledge. If she knew about the tiara being sent for cleaning or something maybe it's being cleaned for Zara's wedding.

Found in a web post about the royals:


There is a huge house in our street. The extended family is run by a grumpy old woman with a pack of irritable dogs allowed to run without leads. Her car isn't taxed or insured and doesn't even have a number plate, but the police still do nothing. To the best of my knowledge, she has never worked in her life.

Her bad-tempered old man is notorious for his racist comments. A shopkeeper blamed him for arranging the murder of his son and his son's girl-friend, but nothing has ever been proved.

All their kids have broken marriages except the youngest, who everyone thought was gay. Two grandsons are meant to be in the Army but are always out partying in nightclubs. It is not known if they have the same father. They are both out of control.

I hate living near Windsor Castle! :rofl:

Or maybe it was Angelica Houston.

That's funny, skaternum! But isn't it true that the Queen worked as a mechanic during WW2?

Sorry for the double post. :shuffle:

I think the Vladimir is even more severe. I think the Russian Fringe may work if Kate's hair is done in an non-severe way.

I think Kate would look nice in the Girls of Great Britain and Northern Ireland Tiara (http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_TU_1Wmmo6sM/SrRw1Q2RjtI/AAAAAAAAKPk/AqEEvNYNUS0/s1600-h/gbi-tiara.jpg). If she doesn't like it, I'd be happy to wear it. Must keep it polished up and wearable!

Question: Would Zara get to use a tiara (let alone that one?) IIRC, her mother declined titles for her children. (Man, I'd be annoyed.)
