When it came to her royal wedding to Prince Ernst August of Hanover, Ekaterina Malyshev followed in the footsteps of another Hanoverian bride, Princess Caroline. The Russian designer donned the Hanover Floral Tiara, which dates back to the 19th century, for her July 8 nuptials. The stunning piece that features a floral design covered in diamonds paired nicely with Ekaterina’s custom hand-embroidered Chantilly lace gown by Lebanese designer Sandra Mansour.

Prince Ernst’s stepmother, Princess Caroline of Monaco, previously wore the tiara back in 2004 to a pre-wedding gala performance in honor of Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary of Denmark’s wedding. Like Ekaterina, Charlotte Casiraghi’s mother also styled her hair up when wearing the sparkling tiara. While Prince Ernst August Sr., the head of the House of Hanover’s estranged wife did not attend her stepson’s wedding on Saturday, her four children — Princess Alexandra of Hanover, Charlotte, Andrea and Pierre Casiraghi — were in attendance. Ernst Jr.’s father also skipped out on his oldest son's wedding due to a financial dispute.
