The Danes kicked off 2016 on January 1 with their annual New Year’s Banquet at Christian VII’s Palace. Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik – along with Crown Prince Frederik, Crown Princess Mary, Prince Joachim, and Princess Marie – hosted government officials and other guests. This event, which originated in the 1600s, is one of the […]
The night after the Nobel Prize Award ceremony and banquet, December 11, the Swedish Royal Family – King Carl XVI Gustaf, Queen Silvia, Crown Princess Victoria, Prince Daniel, Prince Carl Philip, Princess Sofia, Princess Madeleine, and Chris O’Neill – attended the King’s dinner for the Nobel Laureates, bringing us another round of tiaras and food.
I love tiaras, I really do. And I love it when people break out of their tiara ruts and wear something new (while I think the Lover’s Knot should have stayed in the vault a while longer it was still interesting to see it again). Yesterday, December 10, the Swedish Royal Family – King Carl […]
Well I can’t quit now. Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, shocked me this evening as she showed up to the annual diplomatic reception at Buckingham Palace wearing the tiara formerly worn and most closely associated with Princess Diana: The Cambridge Lover’s Knot Tiara.
As I was finishing up this post yesterday, Duchess Kate/KP dropped two new photos of Princess Charlotte on us and that bumped this post to today.

The Cambridges joined Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip in honoring President Xi Jinping and Madame Peng Liyuan. *Updated with more photos*
Ahead of what looks to be a very Duchess Kate-heavy week and a half, let’s take a look at what some of the other royal ladies have been doing this week. We’ll start with Crown Princess Victoria at an IPC meeting, then move on to Queen Mathilde in tiaras, before doing a trifecta of horse […]
This week’s Royal Round Up includes someone we haven’t talked about in a while, Queen Letizia, dolling it up in a tiara. It also includes photocalls from Queen Maxima and Queen Mathilde and theirs families; Princess Charlene celebrating Prince Albert‘s 10 year anniversary; and the Battle of Britain flypast and the 7/7 commemoration.
Lots of tiaras popped up this week, so let’s take another Grand Tiara Tour of Europe on this Friday evening. Queen Elizabeth paid a State Visit to Germany with a State Dinner on the second night giving us lots of jewels and a tiara; Queen Maxima and other Dutch royals held a reception for the […]
