Maybe if you guys give me the names and perhaps show me a picture or two I might be able to come up with something.

I didn't post Birgitta's other daught

Gorgeous poll, Humera! And thank you for putting so much work in the pictures. You had a lot of back and side views which I hadn't seen before.
I still haven't voted in the poll because I can't make up my mind. The wedding had an exceptional good number of good tiara-hairstyles and one really must congratulate the hairstylists on this event.
I very much like Mette-Marit, but have to criticise that the tiara was worn at such an angle that it nearly got lost in her hair. Mary's hairstyle was wonderful as well, but I'm a bit put off because I preferred the former version of the wonderful ruby tiara. Märtha-Louise was just great for showing us how the amethyst tiara should be worn to best effect, but it still is not the best tiara out there. Among the older generation with shorter/loose hair Queen Silvia was astonishing (and she showed GD Maria Theresa who to wear a big whopper gracefully!). Closely behind Silvia was Queen Anne-Marie of Greece, imo.
As for the worst looks: Neither Queen Rania nor GD Maria Theresa score high on my scale. But they were beaten by far by Princess Brigitta and the nine-prongs tiara (which you wisely left out of the poll).
Re. the Haga princesses: all four of them have received their own tiara, but only two of these tiaras appeared at this wedding. Princess Margaretha wore the aquamarine kokoshnik herself, and the tiara of Princess Brigitta was worn by her daughter. I found it a bit disappointing that Princesses Desirée and Christina didn’t lend their tiaras to one of their daughters of daughters-in-law.

I was kind of hoping for that too, Tilia C. But up until a few days before the wedding, all of Princess Christina's sons were bringing their girlfriends...which should get to wear hers? And Princess Desiree only has the one, but two daughters and a daughter-in-law. Desiree of Hohenzollern wore her mother's because it was actually given to her and now belongs to her. I'm not sure, but the only pictures I have ever seen of Birgitta wearing that tiara are from her pre-wedding ball ages ago. I suppose she didn't really care for it anyway. And since Princess Margaretha wore her aquamarine tiara, there was not thing for her daughter or daughters-in-law to wear. Still it would have been nice to haul out all the unused minor tiaras, brooches, revieres hooked on a headband, etc. and put the shine on with all of them!

I'm a bit suprised that this thread got going so late after the wedding, not that I'm complaining :) It's great to see such great combos

Ok, you are right about that. But like a spoiled child I am stamping my foot because I wanted to see HQ pictures of Princess Desirée’s nice little diamond tiara. And the wedding seemed to be THE opportunity for it. Lending tiaras to the girlfriends might not do, I can see that. But one of Christina’s daughers (in law) might have worn the tiara, while the other two wear other jewels like brooches in their hair. (More sulking footstamping from my side.) They could have looked at the Mainau-Bernadottes: while Bettina Bernadotte wore a tiara, her sister-in-law Sandra wore a ruby necklace. OK, they actually do have another tiara, but that is not my favourite with it’s harsh design of cuff-links on spikes. So I forgive Sandra Bernadotte for prefering the ruby necklace. (Sulking kid stops sobbing for a while.)

Mmh, I don’t blame her for not caring about this tiara, there are nicer ones out there. But Desirée von Bohlen und Halbach made it look nice. And I can’t say the same of Princess Brigitta and the nine prongs (more sulking sobbing from the spoiled brad here).

(Sobbing stops:) At least we now know that the aquamarine tiara was not sold, at least not outside the SRF. I’m really glad that it is still there, it’s a beautiful piece! But than there’s more sulking footstamping because of the missed opportunity to stick some nice brooches, pins, necklaces, etc in the hair.

1. I voted for Mette-Marit, even though my favorite tiara is worn by Queen Silvia (her hair style, while nice, was nothing special).

My other favorite tiara/hair combinations are:
2. Claire
3. Martha Louise
4. Mary
5. Letizia

Thank you for the pictures. The full views of the hair-dos was great.

I think that the princess of Jordan (#25) was a nice look. She might have had a small tiara but it worked really nice with her hair. Princess Alexandra had a nice french twist as well. Princess Martha-Louise looked nice in the amethyst tiara. Her curled dark hair-do made the tiara really stand out. Sophie, Countess of Wessex would have looked better had her bobby-pins not been sticking out. The idea though was flattering on her.

Special mention goes to M-T of Luxembourg. I like the way she wore the tiara. I also think that it looks really heavy and she wore that thing for at least 10hrs. So go M-T.

I voted for Maxima's. I really loved her tiara and hairdo for Victoria's wedding.

I chose Martha-Louise. The amethysts really stood out on her dark hair and went beautifully with her gown.

I also really liked Queen Anne-Marie of Greece - the tiara was beautiful and her hair really complemented it.

Okay this is what I've managed to come up with: Maria Fredericksson Silfverschiold - nice hairstyle but it obscures her hair-piece; I didn't even realize she was wearing one until you pointed it out. Anyway its nice, matches her pearls.

Can you identify this lady (I'm assuming she's one of the cousins as well): Photo - interesting tiara

who's the young woman in the blue dress behind her, I think I might be able to come up with a picture of her as well. She seems to be wearing a very small bracelet? in her hair.

unfortunately I couldn't find anything on these ladies.

I do plan to post pictures of several other ladies wearing tiaras, most of them I don't recognize. They're probably members of the extended SRF.

Thanks for the pics of Maria Silverschiold. The pearl-thing looks really nice in her hair, although it does not look like precious jewellery, imo.

The lady with the multi-coloured tiara is Countess Bettina Bernadotte, daughter of Count Lennart Bernadotte. Her sister-in-law Countess Sandra Bernadotte, née Angerer, is the lady in the blue dress with the ruby bracelet or necklace in the hair.

It would be really great if you could post pictures of other tiara wearers. I think there's enough combined knowledge on the TRF to identify them. I will now check my files and post some of the other tiara-ladies later.

I think the King's sisters weren't yet posted in this thread, so here they are:
Princess Christina with the six-buttons tiara http://inlinethumb21.webshots.com/25108/2076314900105578647S600x600Q85.jpg
Princess Brigitta with the nine-prongs tiara http://inlinethumb21.webshots.com/42452/2345695340105578647S600x600Q85.jpg
Princess Desiree with the amethyst tiara http://inlinethumb31.webshots.com/47454/2851789700105578647S600x600Q85.jpg
Princess Margaretha with her aquamarine tiara http://inlinethumb13.webshots.com/46540/2455038180105578647S600x600Q85.jpg

Some relatives of the SRF:
Countess Gunilla Bernadotte http://inlinethumb34.webshots.com/47649/2466162710105578647S600x600Q85.jpg
Countess Marianne Bernadotte http://inlinethumb29.webshots.com/34780/2555063200105578647S600x600Q85.jpg
Countess Jill Bernadotte http://thumb7.webshots.net/t/76/176/8/93/40/2821893400105578647RfHZml_th.jpg
I think the lady in the red cape is called Dagmar von Arbin http://inlinethumb35.webshots.com/38370/2689603860105578647S600x600Q85.jpg
Mrs. Madeleine Kogevinas http://inlinethumb03.webshots.com/45250/2453879830105578647S600x600Q85.jpg

Alice Trolle-Wachtmeister, I think she’s a lady in waiting to Queen Silvia http://inlinethumb23.webshots.com/23062/2229210270105578647S600x600Q85.jpg

I hope I didn't mix them all up.

Humera, you are amazing! You actually exceeded my expectations. Based on what I was able to accomplish on my own, I was sure there wouldn't be anything clear or close-up on Maria Silfverschiold. I bow to your greatness! On that and your other posts, please refer to my posts in blue below:

Yes, I didn't realize it at first either, but most of the shots of her had her facing to her right which obscured the view. Thanks for getting such close and clear shots.

Can you identify this lady (I'm assuming she's one of the cousins as well): Photo - interesting tiara

This is Countess Bettina Bernadotte, daughter of the Lennart and Sonja Bernadotte and currently head of the branch that lives on and operates Mainau. The tiara was worn previously by Lennart's first wife Karin in the 1960s (?). It is the only time I have seen it other than this.

who's the young woman in the blue dress behind her, I think I might be able to come up with a picture of her as well. She seems to be wearing a very small bracelet? in her hair.

This is Countess Sandra Bernadotte, wife of Bettina's younger brother, Bjorn. They married in 2009. For her wedding she wore the "cuff-link" tiara usually seen on the Mainau women, but changed it for this bracelet (?) for her wedding reception. Although it is rather insubstantial, I think she look good in it and the blue gown is very nice on her.


I have the same picture, plus a rather blurry view of the back of the hair but she doesn't seem to be wearing any jewels in her hair.

I didn't think she had any adornment on her hair...but with that choker and rather ample cleavage, she really didn't need anything else. The style of her gown was...meh...but I really liked the color.

unfortunately I couldn't find anything on these ladies.

Actually, Kristina de Geer was the only one that I thought I may have seen something glittering on the back of her head (maybe during the cake-cutting footage) but it was from far away and hard to tell. Not crazy about her gown either.

I do plan to post pictures of several other ladies wearing tiaras, most of them I don't recognize. They're probably members of the extended SRF.

If you post others, I will try and do what I can to help identify. Until then, thank you again for your work in finding, creating, and posting these for all of us who follow the Swedish royals. I appreciate it very much.

I voted for Princess Letizia. Her hair was spectacular! I always like Princess Mary and she was wearing my favorite tiara. I almost voted for Queen Sonja. Love the emeralds and her hair is gorgeous.

Hi, Tilia C. Based on our pvt discussion, I uploaded this. When I opened your post, it came out like a thumbnail or avatar so maybe I did something wrong. Anyway, here is what I have, sorry it isn't as clear.

Thank you Rascal, it seems better than mine. On your picture the tiara looks like it has pearls on top, so it matches then necklace.
Humera, you came up with a really good bunch of photos, thanks once again.

I just decided to vote for Mette-Marit, but it is a difficult choice because I like so many others as well. But I seem to be the only on who doesn't like Queen Sonja's hairstyle that much. The back looked fake and over the top to me. I like the added brooch, of course, but the rest was too much for my taste. And the colours of the added hair don't really match her real hair imo.

Bravo Princess Christina for being making the button tiara actually look good! I didn't think anyone could do that. Lovelove the color of the dress too.

Ella Kay at Mad Hattery referred to her looking like something out of Star Wars and now I too can't unsee it.
