Royal bride Princess Eugenie turned heads in her classic off-the-shoulder wedding dress by Peter Pilotto, but the look would not at all be complete without her regal headpiece—the Greville Emerald tiara.

Eugenie, who opted against a wedding veil, sported the sparkly tiara with emerald accents, which perfectly complemented her wedding day updo. She also donned earrings to match the royal accessory's gemstones. Created by Boucheron in 1919, the tiara features a 93.70-carat center stone, and Queen Elizabeth inherited it from her mother in 2002.

Prior to the royal wedding, speculations arose as to whether the bride would follow in her mother, Sarah Ferguson's, footsteps and accessorize with the York Tiara. Fergie donned this accessory in 1986 when she wed Prince Andrew, but Eugenie decided to take an alternative route for her own bridal ensemble. And, based on her affinity for over-the-top headgear, we expected nothing less than the best for the 28-year-old royal's big day.

Believe it or not, Eugenie's wedding day actually marks the first time that she's allowed to wear a tiara in the first place. As per (quite outdated) royal rule, unmarried women are prohibited from wearing tiaras in public.

But, now that Eugenie has crossed this threshold, we can't wait to see what royal headpieces she'll sport post-wedding.
