Varuna D Jani, an award-winning jewellery designer and founder of Ruani, India’s favourite jewellery collective, based in Mumbai, India, spoke exclusively to Express.co.uk to explain why Kitty did not wear the Spencer heirloom, but her mother did.
She said: “Why didn’t Lady Kitty Spencer wear the Spencer Tiara, despite being Princess Diana’s niece, and her father reportedly owning the tiara?
“Lady Kitty Spencer represents the modern-day woman. She acknowledges her lineage, yet at the same time asserts her individuality.
“Perhaps, it is for this reason that she chose not to wear the iconic ‘Spencer tiara’.
