But as the return Events at the belgian State Visit to NL was black tie i expect the same in Denmark. But as Queen Mathilde wore her laurel wreath tiara as necklace in NL i hope we can expect some nice Jewels at the return Event in Denmark too. I would love to see her wearing the necklace of the tunisian Parure.

Yes this one

It is said to be called the 25th anniversary tiara from what I read. A gift to alexandrine from her husband on their anniversary. Could be wrong on that. But yes she loans it to her nieces, that's Josephine in the photo.

I thought about the Dutch visit to Denmark, but wrote Swedish.
If the Dutch had a black-tie return banquet, then the Belgians will certainly have black tie as well.

Queen Alexandrine received this bandeau from her husband for her 25 wedding anniversary, but she was never publicly seen wearing it. Princess Elisabeth received the bandeau as confirmation gift. She mostly wore it as a young girl and has rarely worn it when she grew older. So it's a good bet that she'll wear her sapphire tiara at the state banquet.

I think I've read that the Swedes return visit is "always" the same dresscode as the banquet. So if a banquet is black tie then so is the return, if it's white it's also white. If that makes sense. Makes it an easy choice :P

In the Netherlands the Swedish return event was a banquet held at a Sociëteit De Witte and it was white-tie indeed: http://gpdhome.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8...f5064ae970c-pi

A the Argentinian sash in light blue (based on what we saw in Spain recently), I think we might see Maxima tonight in either one of the pearl tiaras (the larger Wuttenberg one?), or perhaps in the rose cut diamond bandeau.

Any guesses on what Letizia might use for the state banquet in Japan?

Much as I would like to see the Fleur-des-Lys get reused (If I were Leti, I might reserve that for the trip to London in June), it would be great to see the Cartier loop tiara get used.

I also think she will not wear de Fleur-de-Lys in Japan as the Empress doesn't wear tiaras anymore. It would be nice is she would wear either the Carier loop diamond and pearl tiara or the diamond ans pearl tiara from Queen Victoria Eugenie. And togther with it the pearl-necklace which is for the use of the Queen.

I think given the Japanese fondness for pearls, Letizia will certainly wear some pearls. Lets wait and see.

Yes it would be brilliant to see Letizia wearing the Carier loop diamond and pearl tiara but I have a hunch it will be the Floral Tiara.

The rationale for a smaller tiara would be linked to the fact that the Empress no longer wears tiaras. That said, I think (hope?) Letizia will indeed go big this time, and pull out one of the two larger pearl and diamodn tiaras. The good thing is that we do not have long to wait now to find out.

I have a feeling Letizia will refrain from going big in Japan. I also expect her usual floral tiara or the Ansorena Asturias tiara. She will probably wear the Fleur de Lys again in the state visit to the UK (assuming the visit will still happen, which is in doubt now because of the Gibraltar crisis).

Hopefully, if she attends King Harald V's birthday celebrations in Norway, she may wear a different Spanish tiara like the pearl and diamonds or the Cartier loop, but I don't expect her to attend.

My guess is that if someone from Spain is attendingthe joint norewgian birthday celebrations it will be King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia like last year in Sweden. But it can happen that they only attend the daytime Events like last year in Sweden an noe evening celebrations.
I think for the birthday celebrations of King Willem-Alexander it is more likely that King Felipe and Queen Letizia attend.

For Spain, which tiaras are belonging to Queen Sofia and which tiaras are in the Spanish Vault.

Only the larger F-d-L tiara is exclusively for the use of the reigning Queen. The new, smaller pearl and diamond FdL tiara was acquired by Felipe for Letizia. All the other tiaras (Mellerio Shell, Prussian, Floral, Cartier pearl adn diamond, Loop Pearl and diamond, Ruby) belong to Sophia and J-C.

Queen Letizia may yet surprise us with another first-time tiara in Japan. But actually, I find it difficult to imagine her with a first-timer twice in a row. She usually is so jewel-frugal, that it's hard to believe that she suddenly splashes it out like that. (I wouldn't mind, though.)

As for the ownership of the Spanish tiaras:
- the big fleur-de-lys is set aside for the Queen only
- the modern fleur-de-lys was specifically made for Queen Letizia, so it's her personal possession
- the Prussian is Queen Sofia's, a gift from her parents
- the floral, the Mellerio shell and the ruby tiara were wedding gifts to Queen Sofia
- the Cartier pearl tiara and the loop tiara are probably owned by JC, (it is not clear if the loop tiara was inherited or bought back from his sister.)

Nevertheless, I believe that Queen Letizia may wear most of them. She has borrowed three of Sofia's tiaras while being Princess of Asturias. She frequently wore Sofia's floral tiara while being Queen. Queen Sofia hasn't worn a tiara since the abdication. Both Queen Sofia and King JC have dedicated their lives to the monarchy. They know the role that those ancestral jewels play for representing the monarchy. So I really don't see a reason for them to deny her access to the tiara. With one exception: the small ruby tiara has never been worn by anyone other then Sofia. She might see it as her most personal tiara and is probably not going to share it during her lifetime.

Nevertheless, Queen Sofia hasn't worn her ruby tiara in an official event for quite some time now, has she ? If she is going to leave one of her tiaras to one of her daughters, I'd say the rubies are a likely candidate. One of the infantas may also inherit the Mellerio shell, but that is speculative.
