The Royal Hair Accessory

As Neil George Salon is of British Heritage, I thought it would be appropriate to post a picture of Kate Middleton’s stunning tiara.

Kate Middleton chose to wore the Cartierhalo” tiara, which was made in 1936 and purchased by the Duke of York (later King George VI) for his wife, Elizabeth’s mother (also Elizabeth). Queen Elizabeth received it as an 18th birthday present, at which time she was Princess Elizabeth. The delicate headpiece, which is as understated as a headband of diamonds can be, was lent to Kate by the Queen, though there’s a chance she’ll come into one of her own soon: the Queen’s 1981 wedding gift to Diana was the Cambridge Lovers’ Knot Tiara.

Kates Dress was designed by Sarah Burton, at Alexander McQueen. Her earrings were a gift from her parents. I think she looked absolutely flawless or in the words of Karl Lagerfeld “elegant and chic”.
