The Spencer tiara story comes from 2013. It was interpreted by some to mean the tiara was left to William and or Harry.

The problem is of course it was never Diana's to give away. Given Charles Spencer's penchant for selling family heirlooms I could see him flogging it off for a price though.

Quote:
Earl Spencer, the younger brother of Diana, Princess of Wales is to close down the exhibition at Althorp next year.

Lord Spencer, who vowed to protect Diana’s memory from the pulpit at Westminster Abbey during her funeral, is to hand over its contents to his nephews, the Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry.

“It will close worldwide in August 2014,” confirms a spokesman for Charles Spencer, who took the show, Diana: A Celebration, on tour to America.

The collection includes 28 of Diana’s dresses, two tiaras and other priceless family jewels as well as pictures, letters and home movies.

Lord Spencer says Diana’s will stated that her belongings were to be “looked after” by him until both of her sons turned 30, at which point the contents would transfer into their possession. Prince Harry will be 30 next year.

As I thought then, lets hope for some glittering state visits instead.

We have to wait and see how it will be celebrated. King Carl gustraf also celebrated his Silver Jubilee without a big Gala and foreign Royals. Can't remeber how King Olav celebrated his Sivler Jubilee. But usually the norwegian Royals have at last 1 Gala. They even had had a white tie Gala at Haakon's confirmation.

It will be interesting to see which tiara Sofia will wear at the tunesian State Visit. If she wears her Wedding tiara again or of the other smaller tiara's from the Family foundation. For the Queen i guess either the nine pronge or the Connaught tiara and Victoria the baden fringe tiara or the Cut steel tiara.

I think that the Tunisian state visit will be very standard in the tiara division.
Queen Silvia - The Nine Prong
Crown Princess Victoria - The Cut Steel Bandeau
Princess Sofia - Emerald Wedding Tiara, but of course nice to see her with a tiara for the first time at a state banquet.

There a rumours on a Belgian state visit to the Netherlands next year. Now, that would give some bling!
The French President invited the Dutch Royal Couple for a statevisit in March 2016, but neither Silvia nor Letizia wore a tiara in France. However, it's Max.
Perhaps (very small chance) there will be another incoming state visit for the Dutch somewhere in November or so. They haven't had any incoming state visits yet this year. Usually, there are two incoming and two outgoing.

Under Olav, there was gala for everything. Scanpix has a few photos of events, but only one gala event. So there was at least an opera performance and one can assume a dinner of some kind, though I haven't found photos.

If Harald follows Olav's actions, then we can hope for at least a gala dinner.

Wit a dresscode who has suits for the men and short gowns for the woman not even Máxima can wear a tiara for a State Banquet at the Elysee.
I have also read that there are rumours about a spanish State Visit to the UK. If they are true then i think it is likely we will see Letizia in one of the bigger tiaras.

I think that Sofia will wear the emerald tiara a couple of times before she wears a Bernadotte tiara for the first time. Given that Madeleine hasn't worn anything other than her modern fringe for a long time, I think that the other tiaras are meant for rare occasions. Maybe she'll wear something else for the Kings birthday next year?

The Belgian SV to NL is bound to be very glittering! I'm already looking forward to it! Eg. I hope that Princess Laurentien will be seen with a tiara again, since they have moved back to NL and usually royal-royal SV's mean 'all hands on deck'.

The state banquets in Paris nowadays have the dress code suit and short dresses. Even Maxima can't wear a tiara with that dress code.

Incidentally, I came across the same rumor yesterday about a possible Spanish state visit to the UK. The royal houses of the UK and Spain have good relations at the personal level, but the Gibraltar issue remains a permanent focus of tension between the two countries.

Exactly. But she might do what Silvia did. Silvia had a big brooch in her hair. So Maxima can still bling it up! :)

I actually think the Amethyst Tiara would look really great on Sofia combined w/a great updo. I don't think we'll see it on her for quite awhile of course, but JMO. :). I also believe we'll be seeing Sofia wearing her Wedding Tiara for the foreseeable future.

True, but sometimes Royals can smooth paths where usual channels can not. :)

I think that depends. For example Princess Christina often wore one the the tiara's from the Family foundation to Nobel even when she still had her own tiara. And Princess Llian wore also from very erly in her marriage Family tiaras. I could imagine for example the four-button tiara for Sofia for the start.
At the belgian State Visit to NL it will be interesting to see who attends from the dutch Rf. I would be great to see Constantijn and Laurentien attending but then i fear that perhaps Margriet and Pieter would not attend.
I found just that on 22.10. the annual Gald Dinner for the Storing will be hosted by the King and Queen of Norway. The King and Queen, the Crown Pricnelöy Couple and Princess Astrid are to attend.

Prince Constantijn and Princess Laurentien have taken over from Princess Margriet and Pieter van Vollenhoven on Prinjesdag. It is just natural that they also replace them at state dinners. I believe Princess Beatrix will attend the Belgian state dinner though if there is actually one next year.

Going back to the rumored Spanish state visit to the UK, I wonder if the PoW's alleged reticence to be seen with young kings will be an issue. It would be interesting to see Charles and Camilla bowing/curtsying to Felipe VI and Queen Letizia !

I think and hope that we will see Princess Sofia in a different tiara during the Nobel ceremony and banquet this year. I think that it isn't impossible as she might wear her Emerald Wedding Tiara for the Tunisian state banquet, and again for the King's Dinner on December 11th. The Four Botton Tiara is the most likely in my opinion. So this is my combined predictions/wishes for the Nobels:

Silvia
10 - Cameo Parure
11 - Connaught Tiara
Victoria
10 - Amethyst Tiara
11 - Princess Lilian's Laurel Wreath Tiara
Madeleine
10 - Modern Fringe Tiara
11 - Aquamarine Bandeau
Sofia
10 - Four Botton Tiara
11 - Emerald Wedding Tiara
Christina
10 - Aquamarine Kokshink Tiara
11 - Six Button Tiara

It would be lovely if at the swedish events - the state visit and the Nobel festivities - princess Lilian's jewellery would be seen, since at the end of August came 100 years of her birth. So I hope that Victoria will wear the Laurel Wreath Tiara at least one of the events and that Queen Silvia would surprise us and finally wear the Scarab necklace, during the Tunisian state visit.

That would indeed be a lovely tribute!

It's the 'job' of State Visits to overcome such tensions with the means of diplomacy, so I truely hope that these rumours are true. I would so much love to see Letizia in one of the bigger tiaras. Imo the Cartier tiara of Queen Ena would be most likely, Ena was a British princess after all! And I think that out of the big ones, it would look best on Queen Letizia.

In South Korea Queen Maxima wore two lovely bow brooches at a banquet with similar dress code, so I believe that she will think of something for China. She has already tried various brooches in her hair, form butterfly to wheat ears, so I can imagine a lot of possibilities to add some bling.

It seems that the 4 buttons tiara is seen as a kind of starter tiara for Swedish Princesses, and I think that this will be the first Bernadotte tiara that we will see on Sofia. As for the amethyst tiara, I fear that it will look awfully wide on her, as the circlet has a very large diameter. Imo she would have to invent a really good hairstyle to make it look good, otherwise it will drown her.

I think the four button tiara is the most likely one because it is one of the smaller tiaras which is usally worn by more of the Bernadotte woman. Another smaller one would be the Baden fringe tiara but as this one is according to Queen Victoria's wish mostly worn by the Crown pricness i don't see her use that to one to soon. But another of the smaller and easier to wear tiaras would be the smaller cut steel tiara.

That would be a great tribute, and I'd really like to see the laurel tiara and the scarab necklace again. Though it would also be great if the laurel tiara were seen as a necklace again. Imo it doesn't work too good as a tiara, especially with Victoria's sleek hair. But it makes a beautiful necklace!
