Re: Meghan Markle and her wedding day Cartier Jewels
Hi Bob, in my initial query I was really focusing on the bracelet the DoS wore on her wedding day and the subsequent video produced by or on the jewels from Cartier' 'which showcased the said bracelet the DoS wore on her wedding day along with a necklace, earrings and a ring which came with the said bracelet all made at Cartier.
So I was making a supposition that maybe the DoS may have been gifted the other jewels in the video which was designed as a set and included the bracelet.
I never made any mention of the tiara being wholly gifted to the DoS because it has been confirmed that all brides of the BRF are loaned a tiara from HM's collection of jewels.
Well we do know of the DoY being gifted a new tiara for her wedding by the Queen and if we go back in history, we'd also see that QV gifted royal brides with their wedding tiaras as well.
So it made me wonder if the Duchess was indeed gifted an entire parure of diamonds.
Was the tiara really given to her? My understanding is that The Queen allowed her to wear it that day (ie: a loan, not a gift).
