Royal Round Up: Royal Wedding Tiaras

I thought about doing a “Which Tiara Will Sofia Wear” post going through all of the Swedish tiaras to contemplate which one Sofia Hellqvist will wear on her wedding day on Saturday, but, while looking at photos of the Swedish tiaras would be fun, realistically there are only a handful of tiaras she could wear that aren’t in use solely by Queen Silvia or owned by other people. Of those, there really is only one that would work well as a wedding tiara (The Connaught Tiara), plus Silvia will have to tiara all of the King’s sisters (I’m guessing Princess Christina will wear the Six Button Tiara). My guess for Sofia is that she will get a brand new tiara to wear.

So instead of listing all of the Swedish tiaras and telling you why Sofia won’t be wearing them, let’s keep on the theme of royal wedding rewinds and take a look at past royal wedding tiaras for the ladies we’ve been looking at this week. As with the engagement rings and wedding dresses, this is not an exhaustive list of royal wedding tiaras, and we’ll be starting with the Swedes.
