But how many yeyars ago was this? 20 or 30 years probably. I guess that if the Banquet is suits and short gowns nthat there will be no tiara. Perhaps if we are lucky a broosh in her hair

Yes, you're right. I just checked the pictures of the French state visit and I was indeed mistaken.

I think Queen Silvia looks very nice though in the Lithuanian dinner.

I think she will wear a diadem or one of those wonderful antique haircombs which come handy. (picture)

Of course Maxima wore a tiara when receiving China! It's always the host who sets the dress code, the dress code for NL state banquets is always white tie, so the Dutch Queen always wears a tiara at home.

Queen Beatrix's visit was many years ago, things have changed till then. If the host sets suit and short dresses as dresscode, even Queen Maxima can't don a tiara, though it's not unlikely that she adds a brooch to her hair.

Yes, it is disappointing that Queen Silvia didn't wear a tiara. I think that until know she has always worn tiaras at black tie state banquets. So we may be looking at another step in abolishing tiara events. They get more and more scarce , with only WA and Maxima stemming against the tide .

I think it was expected to not see a tiara on Queen Silvia tonight, even if I would have liked it. I rather think that she occasionally wears tiara for black tie events (i.e. state banquets abroad). For example she opted for no tiara in both Poland and Latvia in recent years, for black tie state banquets.

Yes, at least the guessing was fun. But it's already October, the dry season should be over by now. I'm getting a bit restless .

I know that there still is some time until New Years, but I can't help it. What grand tiara events could we look forward to during 2016. I know that there are rumors about some royal-royal state visits as well.

What I hope (and kind off expect):
- King Harald V 25th Jubilee as King of Norway17th January
- King Carl XVI Gustaf's 70th Birthday 30th April

I know it's the Daily Mail but they are joining in with tiara guessing.

Will Kate Middleton borrow a tiara from the Queen for first ever state banquet? | Daily Mail Online

I'm willing to bet my last life saver that should Kate attend the Chinese state banquet, she will most likely wear the Halo tiara she wore at her wedding and her dress will be simple yet elegant. She's definitely a less is more kind of person.

I think she'll pretty much stick to that one tiara even through years of being Duchess of Cornwall and Cambridge with it being the one tiara that she passes down to her daughter when the time comes.

I can't think of other big tiara events next year and hope that they really will be tiara events. It wouldn't surprise me, if King Harald decided against tiaras for his jubilee. We will have to wait and see. But the birthday of King Carl Gustav should have tiaras like his previous milestone birthdays.

What a joke this article is! But it shows that the journalists keep an eye on internet forums and realise that there is a big interest in tiaras. So they write about it. But they don't go for correct information, they just want a showy article.

I completely agree with you, and I'm absolutely convinced that the Duchess wore the papyrus tiara only because the halo scroll was not available. Had the scroll tiara not been lent to the Cartier exposition, she would have worn it to the diplomatic reception.

I think we will have to wait for a Programm for King Harald's Jubilee. So far nothing has been announced yet. But usually the big celebrations in Norway like Wedding anniversaries, round birthdays etc. have included at last 1 tiara Event.

In 2013 I had hoped for a tiara gala for King Carl Gustav's 40th jubilee. There was none, although the Swedish too usully have big tiara events for weddings and round birthdays.

Yeah, it will be very nice :) They usually wear 2 different tiaras. I wonder if Sophia will her her own both days or borrow one on one of the occasions :)

Very true! The DM actually says the Spencer tiara belongs to William; of course it is the property of Earl Spencer.
There's no way Kate could wear that.

Well, last year the Queen was the only one who wore two different tiaras. All three princesses (Victoria, Madeleine & Christina) wore the same on both days . Of course I'd like to see 8 different tiaras, but I fear that at least Madeleine, Sofia and Christina will repeat their standard tiaras. And I hope that at least the Crown Princess will wear two.
