The most famous tiara in the exhibition is the Spencer Tiara, famously worn by Princess Diana during her wedding to Prince Charles.
The marriage of Charles and Diana, (later the Prince and Princess of Wales), took place on 29 July 1981, marking a high point in the popularity of the Royal Family. It was seen by a global television audience of 750 million in 74 countries. In Britain, where a public holiday had been declared, 28.4 million watched on television while 600,000 lined the streets of London.
According to Vanity Fair, Lord Spencer, Diana’s younger brother has loaned the garland-style tiara to Sothebys London and will be showcased for the first time since the 1960s. According to the auction house, it was a go-to accessory for Diana, who reportedly wore the piece seven times between her marriage in 1981 and her death in 1997.
