We seem to be in full tiara season, which is great! So another tiara event next week is coming up.
My guess:
Sonja: Queen Josephine's diamond tiara
Mette-Marit: the daisy bandeau (... again and again and again...), but I wish she would give the vifte tiara another chance.

Congratulations, you got it right! The Queen wore the large version of the pearl tiara and Mette-Marit wore the amethyst tiara.

Unfortunately, we may be forced to host the current President of the United States.

Wasn't this visit downgraded to an official visit and afterward canceled?

Yes, it has been downgraded, I believe the very short Official Visit is now scheduled for around October of this year.

I think that Mathilde will wear the base of the nine provinces tiara for the Australian State Visit. And I do hope that Astrid and Claire will attend as well, though I doubt they will.

If Princess Astrid attends, will she wear the Art Deco diamond bandeau again, thus confirming her mother gave it to her ? Or will she wear her traditional Savoy-Aosta tiara ?

Is Belgium hosting the Prime Minister or the Governor General? I would have thought that, if the former, it would be an official visit as the Prime Minister is not the Head of State. HM The Queen is our HoS with the GGen as her representative.

I would expect the State Visit to be hosting Malcolm Turnbull with the GG being part of the delegation. Seems weird if it's only GG Cosgrove

It will be GG Cosgrove.

In commonwealth countries that is how it is handled. The GG is the acting head of state, as the queen's representative. It is only considered a state visit, when the head of state is making the trip. We see this with Canada, like the state visit to Sweden was made by our GG not the Prime minister. If the Prime minister goes as well, he would be the one who is 'part of the delegation' and not head of it.

If the PM of the country makes the trip it would be considered an 'official visit'. The term state is only used when it is heads of state making the trip.

Belgium is hosting the GG and his wife. It would be termed an 'official visit' if the PM.

Even if she wears it, doesn't mean she has 'given it to Astrid'. She may just loan it to her daughter.

I love how in most countries the thought of tiaras leaving the main line seems to be out of the question, and worrisome. But in Belgium people seem anxious for one of the rare tiaras they have, to be given away.

There already is a thread for the Australian State Visit: State Visit from Australia to Belgium 27-30 June
So this thread should be left to the jewels guessing.


I agree that a repeat of the art deco tiara by Astrid is not a confirmation of a gift. It might just mean that she borrowed it for the second time. Personally, I think that she will wear it again, but not already at the next event. So my guess is that she will wear the Aosta tiara next time.

Princess Astrid not because she will be an economic mission to Argentina and Uruguay from 23-30 June. The visit from Australia it will be 27-30 June.

Princess Astrid already has a family tiara to wear on special occasions (the Savoy-Aosta tiara), so there is no need for her to borrow a tiara from her mother. So far, she has only worn the deco tiara once (at the state banquet for the German president). If she wears it again during the Australian state visit and repeatedly thereafter, I believe it will be a strong indication that Queen Paola has in fact given the tiara to her daughter.


EDIT: Based on Eya's post above, it is confirmed that Princess Astrid will be in Argentina on the dates of the state visit, so no tiara appearance for her this time. I doubt Princess Claire will attend, but, if she does, she will probably wear her pearl and diamond tiara. It looks like she has retired her other small wedding tiara.

Stephanie - citrine bandeau
