Did AM actually ever wear it? I know lots of old photos from her when still Queen of Greece, but never with this beautiful tiara!

No Queen Anne-.Marie never wore. Queen Friederike gave Anne-Marie the rubies and the emeralds at her Wedding and keept this one for herself. Wonder when she worn it the last time. Probably when the Family was till in Greece before the End of 1967.
Btw it has no pearls only diamonds.

Queen Ingrid wore it once in Greece. Because her ruby parure was missing she borrowed the diamond tiara from Queen Frederika. Luckily the ruby parure reappeared the next day. Unfortunately I have never seen a picture of this event.

She was the one whose straps I half feared, half hoped would break. - A brave lady and something of a risktaker, eh?
As a woman I'm probably viewing this differently, but Muhler .. I'd be surprised if it's as much as a C-cup ..........

Her dress didn´t fit her - I´m glad that the straps were there to hold up the dress - otherwise it would´ve fall down

The dress was a bit too small, imo.

Either he didn't held a speech or it wasn't televised. Ever since the reporters announced he was going to be one of the speakers, I was looking forward to something á la QMII's 70th birthday (with Mary running over and kissing him afterwards ), but sadly it didn't happen (or they didn't show it, but I think that's unlikely).

According to the papers 1.2 million Danes watched the gala show Saturday evening. That amounts to just a little more than 20 % of the population. - On a Saturday....

Major events in the DRF routinely score more than a million viewers, almost regardless on when it's aired.

Spaghetti straps are demanding.. with very few exceptions they look best on the young and slim.

. So did I ! Margrethe Vestager and the PM took their gala dresses to a new level last night!

By the way: was the Queen's blue gala dress 'a repeat' or a remade number? She's worn a similar style before; I think it was at the 25th jubilee, however the colour was burgundy-ish.

I think the whole wardrobe of QMII during this jubilee was new

Yes...she had all new outfits while Crown Princess Mary recycled almost all of hers. I count only 1 new coat (Copenhagen Town Hall), 2 new hats and a new pair of shoes (black and gray) for Crown Princess Mary.

In her New Year's speech, Queen Margrethe spoke about the financial crisis. I wonder if there was an effort to not have both the Queen and Crown Princess in all new outfits. No one would begrudge the Queen since it was her jubilee...but if Crown Princess Mary was also seen wearing all new outfits, maybe the criticism would have been that the Queen is giving a lecture about financial difficulties while she and the Crown Princess can wear new outfits.
Also, there will be no official celebrations for Crown Princess Mary's 40th birthday...given the Queen's jubilee celebrations. Too bad Mary's birthday is so near to the Queen's jubilee celebrations!

Now, that's a thought I wouldn't rule out !

We need a break now! As much as the Danes (well, most of us) like our RF it's time for a 'royalty free' zone in the media etc. This is a balancing act and fortunately the RF seem to know it! In five years time there's the 50th anniversary of HM and the Prince Consort and in another 10 there's the 50th jubilee of HM. Right now the very thought of another batch of massive celebrations make me consider temporary exile somewhere (the UK is hardly an option in this respect ).

The 40th of CP Mary won't pass unnoticed in the royalty press, and she will most likely be celebrated privately. This will suffice.

You are absolutely correct! As a matter of fact, the British "Majesty Magazine" will have a profile on Crown Princess Mary in the second edition of the year!
