Why Lady Kitty Spencer may have snubbed Spencer’s tiara on her wedding day last year

A jewelry expert said Lady Kitty Spencer may not have worn the Spencer tiara on her wedding day last year because she associated it with “painful” memories.

The society personality, who is known for her polished, ultra-feminine style and turns 32 tomorrow, tied the knot with Michael Lewis, 63, in Italy last summer.

Princess Diana’s niece married the South African millionaire in a dream setting, but shocked the royal crowd with her decision not to wear her aunt’s bridal tiara at her wedding.

Princess Diana wore the Spencer tiara at her wedding to Prince Charles in 1981, and she wore it on numerous occasions after her big day.

Lady Kitty Spencer married Michael Lewis in Italy last year, but decided not to wear her family’s heirloom, the Spencer tiara, for the big day.

The tiara is a family heirloom that was also worn by all of Diana’s sisters on their wedding days.

After the princess died in 1997, the Spencer crown likely returned to Earl Charles Spencer, Diana’s younger brother and Lady Kitty’s father.

The tiara belongs to the Spencer family rather than the royal family, and Kitty’s mother, Victoria Aitken, wore it when she married Charles Spencer in 1989, making it all the more surprising that the young socialite decided not to wear the diadem last year.

Prestigepawnbrokers.co.uk founder James Constantino told Express.co.uk why he thinks Lady Kitty Spencer avoided the idea of ​​wearing a tiara, saying personal taste and painful memories may have combined.

He explained that it was speculated that Kitty was affected by a number of factors on her wedding day.

“Initially,” he said, “she wanted to combine her love of Italy with her English heritage, which includes wreaths worn in poetry.”

Plus, Mrs. Kitty probably has a specific idea of ​​what she wants to wear on her wedding day.

And so the expert argued that Spencer’s tiara may simply not have worked with Kitty’s wedding outfit.

On her wedding day, Lady Kitty Spencer made a number of changes to her outfit, which was designed by Italian designers Dolce & Gabbana, and is valued at more than £2.5 million.

As a global ambassador for the Italian fashion house, they designed exclusive dresses for her wedding and honeymoon.

For the three-day wedding, D&G created five different custom creations, including the stunning Victorian-inspired lace gown she wore down the aisle.

She was paired with earrings, necklaces and rings from the brand’s exclusive Alta Gioielleria Fine Jewelry collection.

Prices for these diamond and gem-encrusted pieces are not available to the public but start at £25,000 and rise to nearly £510,000 for the best-of-the-kind necklace.

Mr. Constantino speculated that Spencer Tiara might have looked weird with her choices.

However, Lady Kitty has always remained very private and has never discussed her choice not to wear a tiara.

And so he said that one of the reasons she didn’t wear the crown could be because it was “painful” for her for a major reason.

The tiara, which Diana wore on her wedding day, is now owned by Diana's brother, Earl Spencer, and has been in the Spencer family in various forms for over 90 years.

“However, it is also believed that wearing the tiara will bring back painful memories for Kitty, remembering her aunt who died in tragic circumstances, as well as memories of her mother’s marriage which also did not have a happy ending,” he said.

In fact, Lady Kitty was fully vested and expected to wear this crown as the next Spencer woman to marry after her mother and aunts all married in the 20th century.

But Mr. Constantino continued: “Ms. Kitty would have been entirely entitled to wear the tiara because it is the Spencer’s heirloom, but she could have chosen to wear a discreet piece in reference to her heritage.”

Tiara Spencer: Diana’s heirloom wedding piece

Princess Diana wore the Spencer tiara at her wedding to Prince Charles in 1981, and she wore it on numerous occasions after her big day.

The tiara is a family heirloom that was also worn by all of Diana’s sisters on their wedding days.

The headpiece, made by Garrads, has an elaborate design of stylized flowers embellished with diamonds in silver inlays.

Said to date from the 18th century, it was given to Diana’s grandmother, Cynthia, Viscountess Althorp, by a distant relative named Lady Sarah Spencer as a wedding gift in 1919.

Legacy: Diana, Princess of Wales, chose the Spencer tiara for her wedding day in July 1981 and many times since.

The crown was rearranged and sections added in the 1930s, with the oldest pieces mentioned at either end. It features large foliage in gold and is decorated with tulips, stars, and a central heart, each decorated with diamonds and set in silver. Their curved shape and whimsical design set them apart from the more formal style of royal headdresses.

It is said that Diana was a favorite of her older sisters, Jane and Sarah, on their wedding days (in 1978 and 1980, respectively). Diana, as bridesmaid to both, longed for the day when she might wear a sparkling headdress as a bride, and on her wedding day it served as a fitting “borrowed thing”.

The value of the tiara is unknown, but in 2018 the Spencers sold another headpiece, set with more than 800 diamonds, for £185,000 to a mystery bidder at auction.

The tiara is now owned by Diana’s brother, Earl Spencer, and has been in the Spencer family in various guises for more than 90 years.
