Princess Eugenie’s wedding took place in the autumn and was televised just months after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s spring-inspired affair. She wore a full skirted dress, which had a low back and left crowds gasping.

Princess Eugenie wore the stunning Greville Emerald Kokoshinik, which may well be the most expensive wedding tiara ever worn.

The Russian-inspired style is worth a huge £10million.

Made by Boucheron in 1919, this diadem was, like a notable number of pieces in the Royal Family’s possession, originally owned by Dame Margaret Greville.

Mrs Greville, a close friend of Queen Mary & the Queen Mother, Elizabeth, left her jewellery collection to the latter on her death. When the Queen Mother died in 2002, it went to the Queen.

The tiara wasn’t seen on any member of the Royal Family until Princess Eugenie chose it for her 2018 nuptials to Jack Brooksbank.

The choice was a departure for royal brides, who have previously favoured an entirely diamond look.

However, Eugenie’s tiara featured incredible cabochon diamonds, which perfectly complementing both the autumnal theme of the wedding and Eugenie’s auburn hair and hazel eyes.

Many might have assumed Eugenie’s earrings, which perfectly complemented the tiara, were also borrowed from the Queen’s collection.

They were not. The gems were gift from her husband, the perfect “something new” for the wedding day.

The gems are diamond drop emerald earrings and must have been designed with the tiara in mind as they are a perfect fit.

The choice of emeralds for her wedding jewellery was very different choice to Eugenie’s engagement ring.

However, it was still an unusual choice. The princes clearly favour originality in her jewellery and the ring was no different.

Eugenie opted for a rare “lotus blossom” sapphire, which an expert has valued at around £7,000 – modest for a royal ring.

Also known as a Padparadscha sapphires, the gems have a pinkish orange glow.

They can range from a very warm, deep pink hue to a light coral colour.

Eugenie’s engagement ring was on full show in her pregnancy announcement.

The caption read: “Jack and I are so excited for early 2021….”

She and Jack smiled in another picture, both looking thrilled to announce the news.

Eugenie wore a simple green top, while Jack wore a white shirt with a blue suit jacket.

Fans left gushing comments.
