All eyes may have been on the Duke and Duchess of Sussex as they made their appearance at the wedding of Diana’s niece yesterday, however, we couldn’t stop looking at the bride’s tiara.

Celia McCorquodale, who is the daughter of Diana’s eldest sister, Lady Sarah McCorquodale, tied the knot with George Woodhouse in Lincolnshire, with a slew of royals watching on.

And in the biggest nod to her beloved late aunt, Princess Diana, Celia wore the same tiara Diana did when she say ‘I do’ to Prince Charles back in 1981.

The Spencer tiara hasn’t been seen in years, mainly because it was on the road in an exhibit about Diana’s life until recently.

Diana and her sisters, Lady Sarah McCorquodale and Lady Jane Fellowes, all donned the glittering tiara for their wedding days.

In 1989, Earl Charles Spencer’s wife Victoria Lockwood wore the Spencer tiara when she walked down the aisle.

However, the tiara, which has been in the family for centuries, was not worn by Earl Spencer’s two future wives.

Meanwhile, Princess Diana’s family was represented at the wedding by Prince Harry and his new wife, Meghan Markle.

The loved-up newlyweds held hands as they made their way into the cute country church, with the Duchess of Sussex looking glowing in a floral Oscar de la Renta gown from the designer’s resort 2019 collection.

She matched it with a white bow fascinator and her Aquazzura wedding shoes.
