Sorry if you answered this before, but what tiara do you think the future wife of harry might wear?

The only real options besides and new tiara and something from the Queens personal collection are the Strathmore Rose (although its said to be in pretty rough shape so who knows if its even wearable),


The Teck Cresent (this is my top choice, its versatile and hasnt been seen in a long time) and Charles apparently inherited it after the Queen Mother died

Queen Mary’s sapphire bandeau is another option 

As is this bandeau (although I’m not 100% that its an option but I dont think it belongs to Margarets family and it wasnt sold, so that probably means that its still in the royal family)

The Lotus is an option

The Queen Mothers double meander might be an option, but Anne wore it recently during the state visit from Mexico so it might be in her possession, but if not (sans the feather of course)…

Now this one is more of a stretch, but Princess Andrews (Philips mothers) tiara is available. The middle version was worn once by Sophie and hasnt been seen since

SINGAPOUR MON AMOUR: Politics and Poetics of Space(s)


17 June -12 July
19 June Opening
Point Éphémère
www.facebook.com/events/986947894662187

The exhibition Politics and Poetics of Space(s) presents a selection of works by eight contemporary artists, who dedicate their artistic research to exploring social and urban developments in Singapore. Through subtle observations, conceptual or speculative approaches, they focus on unseen, neglected or imaginative spaces, as well as everyday life in the periphery. Distanced from the highly mediatised image of the modern metropolis, they unveil the vision of a quiet city that functions at a slower pace, which gives the viewer room for critical reflexion. The inherent poetry of the chosen images resonates with a sound installation that complete the selection.

The exhibition is curated by Silke Schmickl (Lowave) in collaboration with Catherine David.

Fun royal story

The great British Cunard ocean liner Queen Mary was originally to be called Queen Victoria. The head of the Cunard company explained to King George V (1865 – 1936) that he wanted to name the ship after “the greatest of all English queens.” Upon hearing this explanation the king replied, “Oh, my wife will be pleased.” As a result, the great ship was christened after Mary of Teck.
