This weekend, Camilla Tominey broke the news that Eugenie is planning to move to a cottage on the grounds of Kensington Palace ahead of a wedding to Jack in 2017. Though the Duchess of York swiftly denied the story, the move to KP has been widely reported, and Tominey has stood by her sources on the entire story.
If a royal wedding really is on the horizon, it's time to start wagering on a wedding tiara, isn't it? Regardless of the location or size of the guest list, each of the weddings in Eugenie's royal generation so far -- those of Peter Phillips, the Duke of Cambridge, and Zara Phillips -- have featured brides wearing tiaras. Here are some of my early guesses for Eugenie's bridal diadem...

Queen Mary's Fringe Tiara
There's another tiara from the Queen Mother's collection with a more obvious bridal history: the diamond fringe tiara commissioned by Queen Mary. It was worn by the Queen on her wedding day in 1947, and Princess Anne also borrowed it for her first wedding in 1973. I love a good diamond fringe on bride -- when worn correctly, they make her look like she's a shimmering ray of sunlight. (Read more about this tiara over here!)

A Flower Crown?
When Eugenie's parents married, her mother famously arrived at Westminster Abbey wearing a bright crown of flowers. Her tiara was hidden underneath the blossoms and was only revealed after the marriage certificate was signed and she was officially a princess. Flower crowns are back in vogue, especially with Eugenie's generation, so perhaps we'll see her honor both trend and family tradition by eschewing gemstones altogether and donning a crown of flowers instead?
