By Laura Sutcliffe

Wedding preparations are fully underway since the announcement of Princess Eugenie's engagement to Jack Brooksbank on Jan. 22, and naturally royal watchers can't wait to see what the bride-to-be will wear when she walks down the aisle. Eugenie has always been a fan of fashion, having been photographed in designers including Louis Vuitton and Erdem, and her bridal gown is sure to reflect that. But a royal wedding calls for a little extra flair in the form of the elaborate, antique headpieces women with titles wear so well: tiaras! After feasting their eyes on her stunning engagement ring, fans can't wait to see which tiara the Princess will choose!

If the 27-year-old decides to wear a tiara that has a similar connection with her engagement ring - which was inspired by her mother Sarah, Duchess of York's design - she might opt for the tiara her mother wore when she wed Eugenie’s father Prince Andrew in1986. The beautiful tiara Sarah wore to her wedding was lent to her by her then mother-in-law the Queen. It would add a meaningful touchto Princess Eugenie's bridal attire, and would also fit in with the age-old tradition of the bride wearing 'something borrowed'!
