Royal Wedding Rumors - Some True- Some Not!

It's 3am and I am just giving you the "secret deets"

The dress - Sara Burton for Alexander McQueen!

I have to say that I have a new found respect for Ms Burton - to turn out all the really trendy -edgy fashion expected by the fans of the late Alexander Mc Queen and to then turn around and put out what is sure to be a classic wedding look for decades!  Kudo Sara Burton...

The Tiara!  the Scroll Tiara or Halo Tiara by Cartier...
from the Official Wedding page:

The veil is held in place by a Cartier ‘halo’ tiara, lent to Miss Middleton by The Queen.  The ‘halo’ tiara was made by Cartier in 1936 and was purchased by The Duke of York (later King George VI) for his Duchess (later Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother) three weeks before he succeeded his brother as King.  The tiara was presented to Princess Elizabeth (now The Queen) by her mother on the occasion of her 18th birthday. 
The Bride’s earrings, by Robinson Pelham, are diamond-set stylised oak leaves with a pear shaped diamond set drop and a pavĂ© set diamond acorn suspended in the centre.  Inspiration for the design comes from the Middleton family's new coat of arms, which includes acorns and oak leaves.  The earrings were made to echo the tiara.  The earrings were a personal gift to the Bride from her parents for her Wedding Day.

This tiara seems to have a tradition of being lent to royal ladies until they receive a tiara of their own.  Elizabeth's sister Princess Margaret wore it until she was given the Art Deco Fan Tiara by the Queen Mother...then Princess Anne borrowed the Scroll until she was given the Greek Key Meander Tiara.  So - it leads one to wonder if Kate will be presented with her own tiara?

One more additional piece of jewelry that was so sentimental - the Queen wore sunshine yellow and Queen Mary's True Lover's Knot Brooch

So - Good Night...there is more here:
