The only adult member of the Royal Family who hasn’t worn a tiara yet - and it makes total sense!

Only one adult member of the immediate Royal Family hasn't worn a tiara yet and there's one occasion where it's expected to happen

There’s only one adult member of the Royal Family who hasn’t worn a tiara yet but this makes total sense given what we’ve seen from their fellow royals. 

There have been some magnificent tiara moments from immediate and extended Royal Family members over the years. Many of Queen Elizabeth’s tiaras have had many state occasions at which to shine and Queen Camilla’s favourite tiara was her go-to for a visit to Berlin in March. Whilst the Princess of Wales’ Lover’s Knot Tiara was a show-stopper at the wedding of Crown Prince Hussein and Princess Rajwa of Jordan. And it’s easy to forget that only one adult member of the Royal Family hasn’t worn a tiara at this point. 

Out of all the adult members of the Royal Family, from the late Queen Elizabeth’s children to her grandchildren, it’s only Lady Louise Windsor who’s never worn one.

The 19-year-old has attended plenty of high-profile royal occasions over the years but never a State Banquet where tiaras are traditionally worn. This doesn’t mean that Lady Louise will remain the one adult member of the Royal Family who hasn’t worn a tiara forever though.  When it comes to getting to wear a tiara, both working and non-working royals alike have been seen wearing them at other times, though typically for the first time on one particular day. 

Lady Louise Windsor’s cousins Princess Eugenie, Princess Beatrice, and Zara Tindall wore tiaras for the first time on their wedding days. Princess Eugenie opted for the Greville Emerald Kokoshnik Tiara, whilst Princess Beatrice wore Queen Mary’s Diamond Fringe Tiara which both Queen Elizabeth and Princess Anne wore on their wedding days.

Zara Tindall’s wedding tiara was one she’s understood to have borrowed from Princess Anne and which once belonged to Prince Philip’s mother Princess Alice of Battenberg. This is the only time fans have seen Zara - who was born without a royal title - where a tiara and Princess Eugenie has likewise only been pictured wearing one at her wedding.

Stepping out in the York Tiara in Jordan earlier this year, Princess Beatrice’s tiara stunned as she wore one for only the second time. It’s likely that Lady Louise Windsor will wear her first tiara on her own wedding day and could possibly get to wear one another time if she goes on to attend a high-profile royal wedding or event where one is required.

Lady Louise could also be permitted to borrow one of her grandmother’s tiaras for her big day, possibly one of the ones her mother has worn. Sophie, Duchess of Edinburgh has been seen wearing some stunning pieces over the years, including the diamond and aquamarine tiara she wore last year for a state banquet and the diamond Anthemion Tiara she wore for her wedding to Prince Edward. 

This is more subtle as royal tiaras go and would also have a lovely story behind it and so could likely be Lady Louise Windsor’s tiara of choice whenever the time to wear one for the first time comes.
