When she married Captain Mark Phillips in 1973, Princess Anne famously borrowed Queen Mary’s Fringe Tiara from the royal collection – the diadem the Queen wore for her own wedding in 1947. But Anne has collated a collection of personal precious tiaras during her time as a royal.

Pineflower Tiara

The Pineflower Tiara is adorned with huge aquamarine stones and diamonds for extra sparkle.

Like most of her diadems, Anne was actually gifted the Pineflower Tiara by another member of the Royal Family.

King George VI commissioned the tiara for his wife, the Queen Mother, to mark their anniversary.

Festoon Tiara

Princess Anne has often reached for her Festoon Tiara over the years and it first entered her possession in the 1970s.

The tiara was reportedly generously gifted to Anne by the World-Wide Shipping Group after she christened one of their ships.

The tiara has distinct scrollwork, impressive height, and it is bedecked with diamonds.

When Anne’s elder child Peter Phillips married Autumn Kelly in 2008, the bride borrowed the Festoon Tiara for the ceremony at St George’s Chapel, Windsor.

The tiara has a distinct Greek key design and it is adorned with an array of glistening diamonds.

Experts have estimated the tiara could be worth up to £4million, due to its royal provenance and the fact it may have been crafted by renowned jeweller Cartier.

Anne has worn the tiara on several occasions, but to the delight of royal fans, it got perhaps it’s most famous outing in 2011.

The Princess Royal’s only daughter Zara Phillips wore the diadem to marry rugby star Mike Tindall in Edinburgh.
