Choosing a wedding outfit is a thrilling and sentimental process for any bride, especially those who are part of or marrying into the British royal family.
From choosing a show-stopping gown, to picking out the perfect veil, there are so may details a royal bride must attend to before she walks down the aisle.
And one of the most crucial details is, of course, her tiara.
Royal ladies are only allowed to wear tiaras once they're married, meaning each royal bride's wedding day is the first time she is able to don one of these incredible headpieces.
Most are invited to borrow a tiara from Queen Elizabeth II's vast jewellery collection to wear on their wedding day, especially those brides marrying into the monarchy.
Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex both wore headpieces on loan from the Queen for their nuptials.
Other royal brides have chosen to wear their own family heirlooms or sparkling new tiaras on their wedding day, including none other than Diana, Princess of Wales.
Each bride's tiara is unique and chosen with her wedding dress, veil and personality in mind, making them standout pieces at each royal wedding.
We've collected details about each of the most exquisite bridal tiaras royals have donned in recent history, so scroll through to see them in all their glittering glory.
