FIRST OWNER OF LOTUS FLOWER
The Lotus Flower, also known as the Papyrus Crown, which adorned Kate Middleton’s head at a diplomatic dinner at Buckingham Palace has a long history. The first owner of the Lotus Flower crown, which is the favorite crown of Queen Margaret’s sister and recognized by her, is Queen Elizabeth II, the mother of Queen Elizabeth II. Actually, this tiara was originally a necklace. The Queen Mother received this pearl and diamond necklace as a wedding gift in 1923. The person who gave her the necklace was her husband, George VI, who would later ascend the throne. He had bought this gift for his wife from a very famous jeweller. The Queen Mother, known as Elizabeth at the time, later wanted to use this jewel as a crown, not a necklace. The designers of the famous company, which her husband bought as a necklace, also made the jewelry look like it owes its fame. So he turned it into a crown. The Queen Mother posed for many photographers wearing this crown. But Elizabeth did not use the Lotus Flower or the Papyrus Crown in the same way that her granddaughter Margaret or Kate Middleton did later. Elizabeth placed this crown on her forehead in accordance with the fashion of the period.

Stanhope wore this tiara with her dress when she married Margaret’s only son, David Armstrong Jones. After the death of Princess Margaret in 2002, the crown disappeared for a while. At that time, some of Margaret’s jewels were sold at auction by her children, but there was no Lotus Flower among them. Meanwhile, let us remind you that David Armstrong Jones and Serena Stanhope divorced in 2020.
YEARS AFTER KATE APPEARED FROM THE HEART
The fate of this crown was at the center of various claims in the first half of the 2000s. For a while, everyone thought that the Lotus Flower stayed with Margaret’s bride, Serena. But the truth was not like that. The Lotus Flower, which is considered among the Queen’s missing tiaras, appeared on the head of Kate Middleton at a diplomatic dinner in Buckingham in 2013. Two years later, Kate Middleton used the Lotus Flower, this time at a diplomatic dinner .
