I agree with that you say Tilia is to be a highlight
When the King of Jordan made a State Visit to the Netherlands, Prince Constantijn and Princess Laurentien were at the State Banquet: picture.

A day later also some sons of Princess Margriet did attend: picture.

When Queen Beatrix made a State Visit to Belgium, also Prince Constantijn was part of her escorte: picture.

So there is a good chance that they will attend the State Banquet, for sure also because the couple and their children live(d) and work in Brussels.

But wasn't this because Willem-Alexander and Máxima did not attend. I believe they where on a trip abroad. And this was so far the only time they attended a State Banquet. But let's hope that this will change now.
As for Princess Beatrix Queen Juliana also used to attend State Banquets in the first years after her abdication and stopped only sometimes in the 1990's. .

It is time for Prince Constantijn to step up, I think. At the Corps Diplomatique Banquet -a few weeks ago- we saw Queen Máxima, Princess Beatrix and Princess Margriet, that means: the present Queen, the former Queen and her sister. The King's own brother who is the closest adult person in line of succession was nowhere.


I understand the desire of the Prince to pursue a private life. Maybe the royal family thinks that in 5-6 years the Princess of Orange will become more and more in the focus, reaching her adulthood. In these 5-6 years Princess Beatrix and Princess Margriet probably remain in the picture so now and then.

Wasn't their 'stepping-up' given as the reason for their move back to NL? So it would make perfect sense that they'd start attending state banquets. And what better than the banquet for their neighbors and friends?

So far Princess Laurentien has worn five differente tiaras: the laurel tiara, the ears-of-wheat, the pearl version of the emerald tiara, Queen Emma's diamond tiara with a centre ruby, and the aquamarine tiara.
I would love to see her trying out no. 6. My preferance would be the small sapphire tiara, but others are also possible.

I would like to see Princess Laurentien with the Ears-of-Wheat. She has it worn once, in Oslo, more than 10 years ago. It is time for a new re-appearance, I think. (Also that red-with-golden silk wrap is glorious and can make a come back...)

Errm... no. That is the one tiara I'd not like to see on her again. Imo it didn't suit her the last time she wore it, and I doubt that it would look much better on her the next time. Imo this tiara needs a wedding veil to cover the gap in the middle.

Queen Máxima surprised us with ears-of-wheat which were not a part of this diadem. The story is that some diamond ears-of-wheat were broken away from the diadem, and given to Hofdames or Dames du Palais as a sign of appreciation.

After seeing Queen Máxima with three diamond ears-of-wheat from another set, I wonder if that story is true. Why breaking diamond ears-of-wheat from a diadem while there are separate items in the cassettes?

So there remains a bit of a mystery around this. It would not surprise me when the Queen orders the Ears-of-Wheat in a different arrangement or eventually with copies of some ears-of-wheat (the Court Jeweller will be able to make replicas) to fill the set up. When the ears are able to tremble, it will have a magical effect, anyway. See picture.

There will be several State Visits in the coming months with a good chance on some sparkle.

Queen Margrethe II and Prince Henrik of Denmark will bring a visit to President and Mrs Jodo Widodo (Indonesia).

Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh will receive President and Mrs Xi Jinping (China).

King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima of the Netherlands do it the other way: they will travel to China and bring a visit to President and Mrs Xi Jinping. The Chinese President already made a visit to them, last year. See picture).

King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia will bring a visit to President Mrs Dalia Grybauskaitė (Lithuania).

When Queen Beatrix made a State Visit to China, she wore a diadem. See picture.

When the Chinese President was guest at the Royal Palace Amsterdam, he and his escorte wore stylish black costumes or gowns. It matched wonderfully well with the white tie dresscode observed by the Dutch guests. See picture. So it can become a stylish affair with jewels.

Also Queen Margrethe didn't wear a tiara on the SV to China. The dresscode was just suit. I am not sure about Indonesia and Lithuania, but I think that we won't see tiaras there.

But usually there is a Representation Dinner in Sweden each autumn. (I bet that will be Sofia's second tiara date!)

And Norway always holds a gala for the Parliament (Stortinget), usually in October.

Also I read that QEII will bring a State Visit to Malta. But I'm not sure if the information is correct, it might be just a normal visit without gala (I hope not!).

It would be very surprising if there were no incoming State Visits announced in autumn. But we'll have to wait and see.

And then there is the Stuyvesand Ball in NY which is attended by Princess Margriet most years. (Last year she wore the star tiara for the first time!)

Of course there is always the Diplomatic Reception at Buckingham Palace (behind firmly closed doors ). But sometimes the paps catch a glimpse of an arriving lady in the car. Last year there were pics of Camilla with the Shand tiara, and some years ago they photographed Kate with the papyrus tiara. I hope that we'll get lucky again this year.

Still, the Nobels will be the highlight of the next tiara season. Here some of my wishes:
- the Queen with the cameo parure! 5 years is to long to stay in the vaults, it needs to see some candlelight!
- CP Victoria with Lilian's laurel tiara. The Nobels are just the right event to pay tribute to the late princess.
- Madeleine with something other than the modern fringe. It is nice, but over-used. Give it a break, try the large cut steel! Or the Baden fringe! Anything.
- I'm not yet used to the emerald tiara, so Sofia is welcome to wear it again, but only the first night. On the 2nd night she should show us that the emeralds can be detached (if they can). Or start to loan from the Bernadotte collection. The four buttons tiara is not my favourite, but it is a good start, and it has been worn by all the other princesses.
- For Princess Christina: Please not the six buttons again, at least not two nights in a row. What about borrowing that beautiful aquamarine tiara of Princess Margaretha again? (Unless Margaretha suddenly decides that she wants to attend the Nobels herself. Now, that would be welcome. Ok, it's not likely, I know.)

What i feared not many tiaras event until Nobel
Well quite early but Tilia tempted me and i will do my wishes to. (I'm starting to become tiara-mania and therefore you fault Tilia ).

I want Silvia with the Leuchtenberg tiara (i adore, adore this tiara).
I want Victoria (why not?) cameo tiara.
I want Madeleine with the Connaught tiara.
I think Sofia she wore her wedding tiara.

Ohoh, so I am responsible? No I feel really bad! Can you forgive me?

Yes, quite early to think about the Nobels. But what else should one to if tiara events are scarce?

Silvia has worn the Leuchtenberg tiara at last year's Nobels and also three times this year. I agree that it is very beautiful, but still I'd like to see one of rarely worn tiaras again, either the cameo or the ruby tiaras would be a nice change.

At the 2015 Nobel Prizes, I would love if Silvia wore the Cameo tiara, Victoria in the Connaught tiara, and Madeleine in the Amethyst tiara. But those are not my "official" predictions. I will post it when the event it more near.

I'll make some guesses on the China/Britain state visit and the nobel.

China/Britain:
The Queen: The Girls... (wish: the oriental ruby tiara!)
If DoCornwall is there: The Greville tiara
IF DoCambridge is there: The Halo Scroll tiara

Nobel:
Queen Silvia: Cameo.. or Amethyst
Victoria: Maybe Lillians laurel wreath
Madeleine: Her go-to fringe tiara
Sofia: Her wedding tiara

Notr sure about Lithuania but i don't think we will see a tiara in China. Petrhaps QWueen silvia will wear a small tiara in Lithuania.
As for the representation Dinner i read that the one who will take place in autumns is the sWeden Dinnder so we will not see tiaras as it has a different dressccode.
There wioll be also the annual Gala Dinner fior the Storting in Norway in autumns. I guess we see the usual tiaras there
for MM the daisy bandeau
and for Sonja one of her three big guns

As for the Nobels:
It is high time that Silvia wears the full Cameo Parure again the last time she wore was on a State Visit to Austria in 2007 and i guess now that all children are married chances are higher that she will bring it out the vaults again.
