    Could Meghan wear the Cambridge Lover's Knot tiara (now usually worn by Kate and worn by Diana) to a function if Kate selects a different tiara or does not go to the function? In other words, who gets first pick for selecting what royal jewels to wear to functions? I would call 'dibs' on certain pieces and wear them all the time so that the other sister in law would not want to wear them:Up_to_something:. I guess that is why I am not a princess:lol:.

    Love the simple hair, and the size and design of this tiara on her. Think it looks wonderful.

    Queen Silvia wore the same gown in 1995. Big tiara called for big hair.

    You & I both...

    Natural akoya do exist too. I have never heard of such strands of them.

    OMG the same gown! So timeless and elegant. So I wonder if there is a huge warehouse with all the gowns worn over the years! I would love a peep at that!

    There is a video on YouTube that appears from time to time called "de kongelige juveler." It is about Scandinavian royal jewels. Most of it is in Danish but there are parts in English. It comes and goes on YouTube (not sure why) and is currently available. It is a great watch even for the parts in Danish that I don't understand!

    Not a jewel but I love reading these and thought some people following this thread might enjoy as well....here's a link to a series of essays on queens - some notorious, some forgotten by history. the language is salty. if you like history and f-bombs, you may want to check it out.

    I bet they do.

    There was a Queen Margrethe's Dresses Exhibition at Frederiksborg Castle back in 2015. Also another one called Fit for a Queen: Nobel Gowns of H.M. Queen Silvia of Sweden Exhibition at American Swedish Institute in Minneapolis, Minnesota in 2008.

    I was not crazy about CP Mary's choice of this ensemble for the biggest of the New Year's Courts. While I love the Edwardian tiara, it does not have the gravitas for the biggest event of the year. She needs her Big Gun Ruby Parure for this event. This dress and tiara combo would have been great for the Day 2 or 3 court, but I can't get on board for the event that really needs your biggest tiara and poofiest dress.

    CP Mary sporting a lot of big pieces-esp around her neck. Her earrings are pretty big too. Maybe she wanted to go lighter on the head as the weight of the other pieces seem substantial. But, If I had Big Gun Ruby Parure, I would choose that over the pieces she selected. BTW, I am not a fan of the dress.
