Kate Middleton to wear Queen's tiara
London - Kate Middleton is
reportedly planning to wear a tiara belonging to Britain's Queen Elizabeth for her
wedding on Friday.
The pretty brunette will marry the queen's grandson Prince William
in front of 1 900 guests at Westminster Abbey and speculation she will wear the
Russian fringe tiara has increased after a "well-spoken, middle-aged
woman" placed a £6 000 bet on Kate wearing the priceless head-dress.
If Kate does wear the diamond tiara from the queen's own personal

Stylist James Pryce - who will be in charge of Kate's locks for her

"100% down and flowy".
He added: "Every bride's hair on their wedding day should
reflect their look throughout the year. Kate's such a natural girl, so no stuffy
up-dos for her."
