Will Kate Middleton wear King George IV State Diadem

Will Kate Middleton wear King George IV State Diadem

Will Kate Middleton wear King George IV State Diadem? We are accustomed to see Queen Elizabeth II with this gorgeous crown in solemn ceremonies. Luxury… but maybe too much!


King George IV State Diadem

The expensive diadem includes 1333 diamonds weighing 325.75 carats (65.15 g) and 169 pearls. Woow! Furthermore, the design features roses, thistles and shamrocks, and of course, the symbols of England, Scotland and Ireland. Normally, it is exhibited at the Queen’s Gallery in Buckingham Palace, London.

King George IV State Diadem is part of the The Personal Jewel Collection of Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain. It’s also called Diamond Diadem and it was made in 1820 by the firm Rundell, Bridge and Rundell. It was first woren by King George IV in his coronation, in the procession to Westminster Abbey.

No doubt, the crown is fabulous. However, Queen Elizabeth II has said several times that it’s too heavy and she has headaches due to its impossible burden.

Then, will a modern princess as Kate Middleton wear this heavy crown the day of her coronation? It’s possible, English Royal family is very traditional but maybe it’s too ostentatious for these times,  and even a little unfashionable.

The same as the current Pope has refused to wear the papal triple crown, maybe princess Kate Middleton will wear a more simple crown or diadem. What do you think?

Have a nice day, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere!
