It looks like the SRF is screeming at us that they like their buttons tiaras very, very much and would the royal watcher please stop speculating about a new setting. I was surprised to see Madeleine with the 4 buttons tiara. Sofar I always thought that maybe it's not her taste. But she managed to wear it well, imo. Victoria's purple dress would have been perfect with the amethyst tiara.

I believe that there will be another dinner tomorrow. I couldn't find any information about that, but last year Queen Silvia wore the nine prongs tiara for this event, Victoria had a diamond necklace in her hair and Madeleine a diamond flower brooch. That makes me wonder what they might wear this year. Will they go back to tiaras? Or are they planning to go more low key in the future? I would like to see the ruby tiara again, but really have no idea what to expect.
What are your thoughts about this?

Yes there will be another dinner tomorrow hosted by the King in honor of the Nobel Prinze Winners. Until last year the wore all tiaras so probably we can expect the same tomorrow.

Maybe it's just me, but I am tired of the nine prong tiara. I don't think it's the most attractive tiara out there, either. Overall, I was disappointed in Silvia's jewelry selection for the Nobels--but perhaps she was playing it low key because she wanted her daughters to shine. Either way, though, not her best year. But, I do like her gown-
Victoria looked wonderful--the Belle of the Ball! Amethysts suit her quite well, I would have loved to see the amethyst tiara but I'm happy with the buttons (they are lovely, historic, and sentimental)
Madeleine--well, WOW is all I can say. She wore that four button tiara perfectly.

Tonight's dinner
Queen Silvia: the ruby tiara
Ps. Victoria: the steel cut tiara
Ps. Madeleine: the diamond necklace worn last year by Victoria
Ps. Christina: her own pearl tiara
- IBL Bildbyrå - Royaltyfria bilder, historiska bilder, illustrationsbilder med mera.

Good to see the ruby tiara worn more often, but I'm not sure of colour of the dress.
I always like to see the steel cut tiara on Victoria, imo it is the one tiara she wears better than all the other royal ladies. But I'm surprised to see it again today, as Princess Christina wore it yesterday.
Madeleine's up-do looks great today, but the necklace gets lost in it. Imo it looked better on Victoria, especially on the new portrait they just released. All in all it looks rather understated.

I do love the Connaught Ruby tiara, it's a beautiful piece of jewelry. However, Silvia looked, well, I think she looked about the worse I've ever seen her look--her hair slipped at one point, she looks rumpled--she just doesn't like Queen Silvia to me at all!

The tiara looks rather awful on Silvia with that hair, she should have done her hair up.
Shame Madeline never wore a tiara, and Victoria looked wonderful as always.

I went through the guesses for the Nobel Awards and must say that we did altogether poorly. Only Stefan, Her Majesty and rop81 came up the the Queen Sophia's nine prongs tiara. So congratulations to you three! But the buttons tiaras came as a surprise for everyone.

But the next event might be easier: the president of Vietnam will pay a state visit to Spain and there is a gala dinner sceduled on December 14th. My guess is that the royal ladies will wear their usual uniform of Prussian tiara for Letizia and floral tiara for the Queen. It would be great to see something different, but looking back at the past few state visits the only exception from the above was the small version of the ruby tiara worn by Queen Sophia at the French visit.
What do you think?

I keep coming up wrong with my guesses (most of it is vain hope on my part anyway) but I sure would love to not see the Prussian tiara. It's very lovely, but I'm getting to the point where I am tired of it. It's the same feeling I have for Mette-Marit's wedding tiara, Camilla's Boucheron, and the Swedish nine prong or Baden. I would love to see something different.

With regard to Queen Sofia, I confess my favorite tiara of hers is actually the Niarchos ruby bandeau--I love it. I really, really do. It's beautiful. Here is a pic, although I prefer the double stranded bandeau:

so, here is my wish/hope:
Letizia in the rubies (I know, I know--but I must see them with her dark hair all swept up with the rubies woven through) and Queen Sofia in the floral--with the turquoise necklace and earrings.

Nice would pe Queen Sofia in the Diamond and pearl tiara from Queen Victoria Eugenie and Letizia in the Mellerio Shell tiara. But please an updo on letizia and not the loose hair with tiaras like she has worn it the last times.

Yes, an updo. It looks too casual!

Oh dear, it is the usual combination of Prussian tiara for Letizia and the floral tiara for the Queen. No elegant up-do, but the standard loose curls.

I didn't yet see good enough pictures to determin if she wears a proper brooch on the sash or that safety pin again.
Looks like we have to photo shop if we ever want to see Letizia with an elegant up-do and another tiara. I'd better pour myself a glass of wine and raid the fridge to get of a severe disappointment.

It would be fun if the royal families read these pages and took some of our suggestions.

I completely agree-they need to read the pages and do something less predictable!
On another note, and this is not the right thread I am sure, but I am not loving the Prince of Asturias with a beard. He's such a handsome man--why hide behind all of that??
