Kate Middleton to wear Queen's tiara

2011-04-27 14:48

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 collection, she will be the first non royal to wear it for her wedding after Queen Mary, the Queen Mother, Princess Anne and Queen Elizabeth all chose the headpiece - known as the George III - for their weddings. 

Natural girl

Ladbrokes spokesperson Alex Donohue said: "If the punt comes home, we'll lose a fortune. This woman either has more money than sense, or she is very well informed." 

Until now it had been thought Kate would wear flowers in her hair, which she is planning to wear down because she doesn't want a "stuffy up-do". 

Stylist James Pryce - who will be in charge of Kate's locks for her big day told fellow celebrity hairdresser Sinead Kelly that Kate's hair will be "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."
