Britain's Royals

An old picture Princess Anne, the Princess Royal (at title usually conferred upon the eldest daughter of a British king) wearing a beautiful naturalistic tiara, depicting cattails and flowers.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge.

Princess Katherine, Prince George (looking sweetly at the family dog), and Prince William, 2014.

Kate and William on a visit they made to the US.

The Duchess with Prince George in September 2014.

The one photo of the Duchess wearing the diamond lotus leaf tiara of Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother's. The Queen has a large store of jewels in the vaults under Buckingham Palace that haven't been worn in decades, but perhaps that will change when Catherine and William take the throne. It was always a mystery why Princess Diana, as the Crown Princess of Great Britain, had only two tiaras at her disposal: one borrowed from her family, and one which was a wedding gift from the Queen.
