This tiara was a wedding gift to then Princess Elizabeth from her mother-in-law Princess Andrew of Greece and Denmark. The Meander Tiara is in the classical Greek 'key pattern' featuring a large brilliant cut diamond in the center surrounded by a diamond wreath. It also incorporates a central wreath of leaves and scrolls on either side. The Queen has never worn this item in public and it was given to Princess Anne around 1972. Princess Anne has frequently worn the tiara in public, notably during her engagement to Mark Phillips and for an official portrait marking her 50th birthday.
