Niece Wears Princess Diana's Marriage Tiara For Her Own Wedding

The Duchess of Sussex may have paid tribute to Lady Di as well with her wedding attire.

Princess Diana’s wedding-day tiara made a royal comeback over the weekend, when the late Diana’s niece, Celia McCorquodale, wore the stunning piece to wed George Woodhouse.

And she looked pretty fabulous ― see the clip above.

McCorquodale ― the daughter of Diana’s oldest sister, Lady Sarah McCorquodale ― put a lot of history on her head.

The Spencer family heirloom that Diana wore when she married Prince Charles in 1981 and on later occasions has also been worn by Diana’s sisters, Lady Sarah McCorquodale and Lady Jane Fellowes, on their wedding days, People reported. The tiara has been in the Spencer family for nearly a century.

The headpiece reportedly has not been worn in public since Diana’s death in 1997.

But it was not the only attention-grabber at Saturday’s celebration. The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, was a guest with her husband Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex, who’s the bride’s cousin.

The duchess wore a striking Oscar de la Renta number.

At least one outlet noted the similarity of the Duchess’ frock to a tunic worn by Diana on a trip to Saudi Arabia in 1986.
