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?
Isn't the Oriental Circlet a Crown jewel owned by the State rather than an item from Queen Elizabeth's personal collection ? If so, I think it is less likely the Queen will wear it overseas, but I may be wrong, as she wore it precisely in Malta before.

I think Camilla will go big this time as well.. Probably her usual tiara but a big necklace! Maybe the ruby Saudi necklace... or another big loan?

The Queen will probably go with her basics, but she DID wear the Sapphires at the China state visit this year so she might be feeling like playing around a bit. I would not turn down another appearance of the Oriental.

To my knowledge there is only one royal-royal SV announced: Belgian -> Netherlands.
Spain does only do very few State Visits apart from Latin American countries, same for Belgium minus the Latin America. So I think that incoming royal SVs to Sweden will take place a couple of years apart.

The Oriental Circlet is owned by the crown, but the Queen Mother has worn it abroad and Queen Elizabeth II has only worn it once so far: in Malta. So she wouldn't mind taking it abroad, but it seems not to be a favourite.

I don't think that Camilla will wear the ruby bib necklace in Malta. Because it's a Commonwealth meeting I'd rather expect a something with a royal background, be it a loan from the Queen or something from Queen Mum.

Oh, very true. I was only thinking size! Hmm.. I'm wondering.. have the Dehli dulbar necklace been worn by lower ranking royals ever? The one with the drops? That could be a big loan maybe.

No they haven't been announced and it will probably be some years between all of them. But I still hope we see the first visit soon.

Haha, guess I got the necklace right but on the wrong person. The queen is in the Dehli durbar necklace and Vladimir tiara with emerald.Looks like Camilla is in her usual tiara and I can't see the necklace yet.

Not a bad guess on the necklace! And I guess that everybody got the honeycomb tiara right.

From the first pics the Duchess' necklace looks like one of her pearl chokers, but better pics are needed to be sure.

Yeah, I think it looks like one of those as well! I actually expected more from her on this event. Guess she spoiled us the last time :P

After even me guess the Honeycomb tiara (which I'm still a bit irrelevant) imagine others . However nice the choice of the Queen to wear the Vladimir tiara.

I read somewhere that there will be also a belgian State Visit to Japan next year. And according to a spanish Newspaper there will be State Visits to Japan, Morocco and the Uk soon. But nothing official.

That would be welcome, if true! Japan and UK would be BIG tiara alerts. But if true, it would also mean that a visit to Sweden is not on the top of the list. So that's bad news for the Braganza.

The Empress doesn't wear tiaras anymore, does she? And does she even travel anymore. Wasn't it a huge deal when she went to Fabiolas funeral? And if they go to the uk, how many of the princesses do they take with them? :P Might actually be rather sparse in tiaras and jewels. If it was one with the Uk going to Japan it might be another thing since there would be a bunch of princesses involved. But I don't see the Queen doing that long of a travel.

I understood from Stefan that it will be visits from Belgium to Japan and Belgium to the UK. So in Japan we'd see some of the other princesses (maybe even CP Masako?). And if they really go to the UK soon there might be a tv broadcast again that shows glimpses of the royals and other ladies at court with their jewels. Apart from the two Queens, of course, and the second lady at the head table (might be Camilla again). Maybe the Duches of Cambridge will attend again?

But so far there is no secure source for these visits, so we should take that with a grain of salt.

That's probably because she wore the Braganza for Luxembourg in the 1990s. Not sure why she didn't for Jordan.

She's also getting older, so she may not want to wear such a heavy tiara very often.

Aaaaah, that makes way more sense than either QEII or the Empress travelling!!

I thought he meant that there would be a State Visit from Belgium to Japan and then from Spain to Japan, Morocco and the UK.

Morocco makes sense as it is a neighbor to Spain and a partner in the fight against terrorism and illegal immigration. I also find the information about a Spanish state visit to the UK credible as the UK government and the Windsors seem to be interested in improving relations between the two countries after tensions over Gibraltar (remember that King Juan Carlos did not attend Queen Eizabeth's diamond jubilee lunch !).

Personally, I'd like to see a state visit from Belgium to the UK so that King Philippe could be made a stranger knight of the Garter (no King of the Belgians has received that honor since King Baudouin), but I don't think it is going to happen. As Queen Elizabeth recently said, state visits are "very political these days" and I don't think Belgium is a high priority country for the UK government.

Silvia did wear the Pronger, the "smallest" of her three "Big guns" so she still went for it. Since Rania wore a fairly small tiara maybe Silvia didn't want to outshine her to much?

They haven't yet been confirmed by Buckingham Palace and the other royal household

A belgian State Visit to Japan was reported by royalblog.nl which is usually a reliable source. And spanish Newspapers have reported about upcoming spanish State Visit to the UK (i think also biritish Nespapers have speclated about this), Morocco and Japan.
I have my doubts about a spanish State Visit to Japan because King JC and Queen Sofia made a State Visit to Japan in 2008.

Might Letizia wear the fleur-de-lys at their state visit to the UK next spring?
