Did you know that the diamond headpiece worn by Celia McCorquodale on her wedding recently was actually the iconic tiara that completed her aunt Princess Diana’s (Diana Frances Spencer) iconic wedding look in 1981?

On Facebook, the page Diana, Princess of Wales 1961-1997 posted a photo of Celia and her husband George Woodhouse during their marriage ceremony last June 16, 2018. Celia is the daughter of Diana’s older sister, Lady Sarah McCorquodale.

“Celia McCorquodale (Princess Diana’s niece) wore Spencer Tiara at her wedding at St. Andrew and St. Mary’s Church in Stoke Rochford, Lincolnshire – June 16, 2018,” read the caption of the picture.

The iconic “Spencer Tiara, which has been in the Spencer Family for nearly a century, was one of Diana’s favorites. To note, she chose to wear it on her wedding day instead of the “Cambridge Lover’s Knot” tiara, which was lent to her by the queen.

Aside from the two, there were other members of the family who wore the same tiara on their special day.
