Programming Note: We will have an open post tomorrow for those that wish to enjoy Prince Alexander's of Sweden's christening. The guests begin arriving at 11 am, and the service starts at noon, local time. (Here's a time zone converter.) Links to livestream will be included in the open post. See you then!
Queen Anne-Marie turned 70 on August 30, which means it's time for a sparkly celebration, only slightly belated. The daughter of a Danish king, Anne-Marie married a Greek king - one of the last examples of marriage between big royal houses, just as the practice began to grow increasingly rare. Her tiara collection happens to be one that has benefited handsomely from a history of jewels traveling from country to country, often courtesy of royal marriages. (As always, click the name of the tiara for its full story.)
But wait, there's more! Yes, on at least one occasion, Anne-Marie borrowed Queen Sophia's Star and Pearl Tiara, a tricky tiara she wore rather well (and another with a country-hopping past!).
Which tiara is your favorite on Queen Anne-Marie?
