Meghan was reportedly invited by the Queen prior to the wedding for her to choose a tiara. The now Duchess of Sussex wore Queen Mary's diamond bandeau tiara, also known as the Filigree tiara.

According to the Kensington Palace, the tiara was made in 1932, "specifically designed to accommodate the center brooch (dating from 1893) given to her (Queen Mary) by the County of Lincoln on her marriage to Prince George, Duke of York."

The Palace adds, "The bandeau, which is made of diamonds and platinum, is formed as a flexible band of eleven sections, pierced with interlaced ovals and pavé set with large and small brilliant diamonds.  The center is set with a detachable brooch of ten brilliant diamonds." Additionally, Meghan wore earrings and a bracelet from Cartier.
