Royals in tiaras for the Dutch-Denmark State Visit

The Tiara Tour LIVES! Sorry I haven’t gotten to it until now; real life beckoned. But we’re here now, so let’s head over to Denmark where the Netherlands paid a State Visit.

I would normally wait and include the goings on of Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall in the Royal Round Up post on Sunday, but Camilla’s rubies and diamonds just can’t wait.

Camilla wore a four-strand diamond and ruby necklace, with matching earrings and bracelet. She paired her jewels with a long-sleeved, deep burgundy velvet gown by Anna Valentine, a lilac organza wrap, and lilac and gold clutch.
