Queen Camilla shunned traditional accessory at wedding that most royal brides wear


Queen Camilla, 75, married King Charles, 74, back in 2005 at the Windsor Guildhall in a civil ceremony, followed by a religious blessing at St George’s Chapel.

Many royal fans were expecting the future Queen Consort to wear a tiara, as is customary for most royal brides.

For instance, Kate Middleton wore the Cartier Halo Tiara to marry Prince William in 2011, and Meghan Markle wore Queen Mary’s Bandeau Tiara to marry Prince Harry in 2018.

Camilla, however, wore two headpieces on the day of her wedding, both designed by the famed milliner Philip Treacy. Why didn’t the current Queen wear a tiara at her royal wedding?

There are two reasons for this – the first reason being this was Camilla’s second wedding, as she previously married Andrew Parker Bowles in 1973.

Interestingly, the Queen Consort did wear a diadem at this wedding and chose the Cubitt-Shand Tiara. This diamond piece was passed down through her mother’s family.

The tiara was originally added to the collection by Camilla’s grandmother, Sonia Keppel Cubitt, who was famously the mistress to King Edward VII.

For Camilla’s 2005 wedding to King Charles, she did not wear a tiara because wearing diadems at second weddings is uncommon for divorced royal brides.

For instance, Princess Anne did not wear a tiara to marry her second husband, Vice Admiral Timothy Laurence in 1992.

Another reason for Camilla not wearing a tiara at her wedding likely had to do with the location of the nuptials.

Instead of a traditional church wedding, then-Prince Charles and Camilla opted for a civil ceremony at the Windsor Guildhall, followed by a blessing at St George’s Chapel.

Since they did not actually tie the knot in a church, it was likely not considered custom for the current Queen Consort to wear a tiara.

Camilla wore two outfits on her wedding day, both designed by Anna Valentine and Antonia Robinson.

The first gown for the civil ceremony was a cream silk chiffon dress, which Camilla paired with a Philip Treacy wide-brimmed hat.

Her second outfit for the religious blessing was a full-length pale blue chiffon dress with a gold embroidered coat.

This was teamed with a dramatic gold feather headpiece, also designed by Philip Treacy.

Camilla’s style on her wedding day was largely viewed as a transformation in the public eye from the then-Prince of Wales’s former mistress to a future Queen Consort.
