Just learning about tiaras. Are there criteria as to what constitutes a tiara event?

That is indeed sometimes difficult to determine. The general rule is that it has to do with the dress code of the event, and it is the host who decide on the dress code. Usually the dress code ‘white tie’ means formal evening wear with tailcoats and orders for the gentleman and long evening gowns and big jewels, including tiaras, for the ladies. The dress code ‘black tie’ is less formal eveningwear and means tuxedos without orders for the gentleman and for the ladies evening gowns without orders and usually no tiaras. But there are always exceptions to the rules. Sometimes white tie events don’t have tiaras, sometimes the invitation would call for black tie with optional tiaras. Ifaik, that would be specified in the invitation.

In European monarchies the dress code for State Banquets at incoming State Visits is white tie and tiaras. So we know that next week’s banquet in Sweden will certainly have tiaras, order, big jewels. Two other certain tiara events that will come up soon will be the Nobel Awards ceremony and one day later the King’s dinner in Stockholm.

Do you agree with what I think,
White tie - habit = with Decorations and Uniforms, evening dress.

Black tie - smoking = without Décorations.
(In Belgium I see gentlemen wearing their decoration collar with their smoking)

Jacquette = english ??
For weddings
For some old fashioned Funerals .

The next tiara event I know of will be the dinner at the Commonwealth Meeting in Malta on Nov 27. The Queen and the Duchess of Cornwall will attend.

Guessing Camilla's tiara is easy, I'm sure that she'll wear the honeycomb.
The 2005 Commonwealth Meeting was also held in Malta. On that occasion the Queen wore the Oriental circlet for first and only time. I'd love to see her wear it again, but I think that the girls of the kokoshnik tiara are more likely.

In English it is called morning coat. It is standard formal daywear.

The King of the Netherlands in jacquet

Three Dutch ministers in jacquet

Prince Harry, Prince William, Prince Charles and Tom Parker Bowles

All in jacquet

I would love if Madeleine wore the Connaught tiara at her fathers 70th birthday. She wore the Modern Fringe tiara at her fathers 60th birthday, it would be great if she wore a tiara she only wore once before at a big family event.

I so hope too that Madeleine won't wear her fringe tiara again. Maybe it's her favourite or she has a special affection for that but it has been overworn..

It would also be great if Silvia wore the amethyst tiara at this years Nobel Prizes as she only wore it once in 1986 at the event.

As for the King's 70th birthday celebrations, some assume she will wear the Braganza tiara. However it may be a pattern as she wore the Connaught tiara and the Braganza tiara at his 50th and 60th birthdays respectively. If she continues that pattern, maybe she will wear the Cameo tiara or the sapphire tiara at his 70th birthday.

I think she opt for the Cameo for the King's 70th birthday as well, but I'm think exactly like you. The Connaught was the favorite tiara of the King's late mother, and the first tiara Queen Silvia ever wore. The Cameo is also the private property of the King and with great history and meaning within the family, a perfect choice for a family occasion, and as it is going to be their Ruby Wedding anniversary next year as well.

I think there could be another reason for Her Majesty not to wear the Braganza as well. We'll hopefully see it a lot in the years to come for the incoming state visits from The Netherlands, Spain and Belgium. That could be a reason to save it for later and wear the Cameo that we haven't seen on her for a while.

Lets hope she continues with her tradition of wearing the Braganza tiara for State Visits from other monarchies. For the State Visits from Luxembiurg and Jordan a few years ago she din't so. But wouldn't it be a sight to see the Braganza and the Stuart tiaras next to each other.

Both the Braganza and the Cameo haven't been worn since the Crown Princess' wedding. But the Cameo makes a good Nobel tiara and, unlike the Braganza, has often been worn to the 'normal' events including outgoing State Visits and Representation Dinners.

That's why I hope that Queen Silvia will wear the Branganza at the King's birthday. There are not so many high profile events that would call for this big gun tiara. And State Visits from the new monarchs aren't yet on the timetable. It may take another couple of years till they take place, so let's not waste a good opportunity to wear this spectacular historic treasure! (Please! )


On another note: Today is a tiara alert in Malta, the Commonwealth Dinner is taking place with Queen Elizabeth and the Duchess of Cornwall.

I half expect to see the girls tiara, but still hope for something spectacular. The Oriental circlet for the second time, or maybe another rare sighting of the fringe tiara?

Have those incoming state visits from the Netherlands, Spain and Belgium been officially announced yet ? When are they supposed to take place ?
