Prince Harry will wed fiancée Meghan Markle at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle on May 19, with the royal family among thousands of guests witnessing the ceremony, as well as the rest of the world.

The most important guest of all, of course, is the Queen and Prince Harry’s grandmother, who is missing out on one key part of the big day.

As always, Queen Elizabeth II will no doubt wear one of her treasured brooches to the wedding, but her choice is rumoured to honour the newlyweds’ relationship in a very sweet way.

At every important event the Queen ensures the diamonds in her brooch represent something meaningful, and she will keep to this tradition at Meghan and Harry’s nuptials.

David Bader and Josef Caldaron, of Bader and Caldaron – celebrity jewellery designers and diamond experts – said the Queen is likely to wear Queen Mary’s True Lover’s Knot Brooch.

David explained to OK! Online: “The Queen is very intentional with her jewellery choices, always tastefully choosing pieces that reflect the occasion, and the wedding of her grandson will be no exception.

“Acquired by Queen Mary from Garrard in 1932, the True Lover’s Knot masterpiece is fully encrusted in Old European Cut diamonds and said to represent everlasting true love, as real diamonds often do. 

“It is most fitting for the special occasion. The uniquely articulated and highly stylized Edwardian ribbon brooch is formed with sharp, dramatic switch-back curves and folds that create a lucid illusion of fluidity and movement even though it is a stationary composition.

“Its symbolic meaning, exquisite beauty, and sheer scale render it most appropriate for the royal wedding.”

Her Majesty last wore the brooch at Kate Middleton and Prince William’s wedding, so it is long overdue to adorn the Queen’s ensemble.
