Well, that's why I think the Tiara would be the perfcet choice for Märtha!
She proved to be the biggest Star Wars Fan when gave her daughter the name "Leah Isadora"... and admitted that she chose this name because of "Princess Lea" in Star Wars.

This Tiara has been a present by King Harald for Queen Sonja's 60th birthday. ... but I guess his daughter gave him some advices which Tiara he should chose.

For some reason, the star wars tiara doesn't bother me on Märtha Louise in this pic.....Maybe that should bother me......

The Lover's Knot just doesn't look right on Camilla. Skipping over the Diana-Camilla thing (because I honestly don't care) I think that the proportions or detailing or something just isn't right. The lover's knot looked beautiful on Diana who would look overshadowed or overdone with the Boucheron tiara or Mrs. Greville's tiara. Camilla looks best with the larger tiaras such as the Boucheron and Mrs. Greville's tiaras. It's just another example of even a stunning tiara can look wrong when it doesn't suit the woman wearing it.

Now I was actually hoping to see the tiara on Leah Isodora, considering your photoshop skills

Thanks for that one HM, it gave me a good laugh and actually it looks better on her than on her granny... Now we should send this picture to oslo and hope that Q. Sonja agrees that it would be the perfect birthdaygift for her granddaughter.

wow, I am not a big fun of MM, but she looks stunning in this pic, and the big tiara looks great, she should wear it while she is still young

Oh Lord, from all these plug uly horror please deliver me. MM doesn't look good in any of them. The gold cough drop tiara looks almost charming on the tiny little child and an absolute abomination on everybody else. Even the magnificent emerald parure does not seem to work for the poor woman. As for that contraption that Harold gave anybody, the thing should be melted down and then sold to highest bidder. Cheers.

I have to disagree Thomas, I think the Emeralds really suit Mette Marit. It's a big piece but I think she can carry it. She's got good bones.

Well, I'm just dizzy with all the activity on this thread in the past day
but I believe I will survive!
Where to begin---well, I guess in the order of post--
Madame Royale--beautiful work with the tiara on CP Mary---I think that she is just such a beautiful woman--quiet, yet dignified--that tiara really suited her overall. I wonder how she would look in the Lover's Knot???? (Hint, Hint)

Her Majesty--I love seeing that fringe on Camilla--it suits her. I know we've talked about how larger tiaras seem to suit her well, but I do think she would look wonderful in a fringe and I'm always happy to see one. It's a beautiful piece; I also think she will look lovely in Queen Alexandra's fringe as well.

The Lover's Knot--well, it is a beautiful tiara--after all, Our Beloved Queen Mary had it made. It's impeccible in its workmanship and detail--those bows are amazing. The diamonds are stunning, the pearls luminous--the pieces that make up the whole are amazing--but, while I like it, I'm not a big fan of the piece. I think it is a piece meant for a young girl/princess and I think that it was a wonderful tiara on a young Queen Elizabeth and equally lovely on a young Diana---but on Camilla, I'm not so sure--not because of the whole Diana/Camilla thing (God forbid that starts up here) but because it is, in my opinion, a little young for Camilla. I know that Queen Mary wore it at an advanced age, but it was Queen Mary--with the spikes it works better for an older person, but in its form now---I think that even though it looks good on Camilla, that it wouldn't suit the generation? Am I making sense? I know what I want to say, but I'm not sure its out there well.
As for Princess Martha-Louise--she's a pill! I like her, I think she's got personality, and hey, she choose an interesting name for her child. I think SHE should get that ugly tiara--I really dislike it. It's too Xena/Wonder Woman for my taste.
As for MM, well, I rather like her. She has very petite features but manages to look good in that emerald piece (I don't love the photo--it looks like she's hard to be sexy) but I'd like to see her in a new tiara. She needs more jewels. She's a Crown Princess, after all!

Mette Marit has to wait until she is Queen of Norway or Norway's first lady . Then she can wear the bigger Tiaras!

I've always liked this taira. It's a shame we haven't seen it in quite some time.

I could not agree more. I have always been somewhat ambivalent about the Lover's Knot Tiara. I saw many years ago the tiara with the top teardrop pearls in place as spikes-it was magnificent-and wonder if I am the only person who would really like to see the thing in all its pearlite (????) splendor including the pearls that have been removed. I do not suppose that the BRF or the keeper of the Royal Treasurers or whatever EVER throws anything away does he??? If so I wonder if the unused pearls, which being teardrop pearls are lovely indeed, are stuck off in a box in a vault somewhere. Just like the Dehli Durbar, which I have always wanted to see with the emeralds and original center gemstone. That will never happen either, I suppose. Sigh.

The Delhi Durbar in its original, unadulturated form.....SIGH. We won't see that again, I'm sure. I wonder if there is a good color photo of the parue? I've only seen black and white

Dear Thomas what I'd love to see is the Lovers Knot Tiara with all of the pearls removed & replaced with briollette cut diamonds (maybe rare Australian pink diamonds). Either that or some nice drop sapphires or amethysts?

How about just a new tiara of amethysts? The BRF does not seem to appreciate the stone--and I think Camilla needs a tiara with a colored stone--
could someone put the Swedish Amethyst tiara on Camilla???? Or some emeralds- or something; that would be nice.
