For all we know Victoria may have told Mary to give it to her daughter for her wedding when young Mary was born.

Today I found this picture of Mary, Princess Royal & Countess of Harewood wearing her emerald and diamond necklace and bar brooch with her large Belle Epoque diamond tiara. This is the first time I see a picture of HRH with the necklace after she had it altered.

The Lascelles family was fabulously wealthy by the standards of the 1920's. No financial troubles whatsoever. Queen Mary and King George didn't possess a crystal ball. They didn't know that death duties, taxes and the events of the next half century were going to leave the Earls of Harewood scratching around for money and things to sell.

Looking back at the 1953 coronation and the glamor and the glitter and the bling and how everyone went all out to be in their very best, I really would love to see that tradition kept for Charles' coronation.

No one does pomp and circumstance or tradition like the British do and it would be a real shame to cut back on any of it when it comes to be Charles' turn.

I wonder who now owns the Harewood scroll Tiara,it was sold off following the death of Mary, Princess Royal and Countess of Harewood in 1965.

If it remains a tiara event (and I think many of us hope so) it will be a great opportunity to see where some long-unseen pieces have come to rest, I hope!

A bit off topic - but who among you think the public is offended by tiara appearances, or maybe what they stand for? Or is the issue that tiaras are uncomfortable, too difficult to keep secure or something else? Frankly, I'd rather give up high heels than tiaras!

I think republicans and socialists in general see tiaras as an offensive display of wealth, especially considering that some royal tiaras in particular were not historically acquired with private family funds, but were rather "gifts" from "the "people" to the royal family , or were indirectly purchased with money the royal families got from the State.

I think it was part of the cause for the royals to stop wearing their jewels to oversea official visits (except for The Queen), Royal Variety Performances, Opera's.

Although there are those that will whine and complain of the show of wealth, I think in general, the British love a good occasion to break out everything they have and throw a good party. We've seen this with Will and Kate's wedding, with the Diamond Jubilee and the Queen's 90th birthday. I would think that the British would want to go all out for Charles' coronation and that includes seeing all the royals and the aristocrats done up to the nines with everything they've got.

It will be the first British coronation that the majority of the world has seen and quite a majority of the people would be sorely disappointed if it was toned down as to not insult the sensitivities of some.

I, for one, would be glued to the TV and the internet so as not to miss a single minute of it. I want the pomp, I want the traditions and I want all the trappings a royal coronation can muster.

I do expect some great jewels to be displayed for Charles's Coronation. Charles is a royal from way back and like women to look grand in jewels.

Camilla will be able to carry that off well...she won't look overdone if she really decks herself out.

Kate will have to be more careful but I do hope she wears more than we've seen to date.

I wonder about the York girls...then Zara, and Autumn etc.

Possibly the York ladies will wear tiaras for the Coronation, but I don't expect anything for Zara and Autumn. They're not princesses of the U.K. They will likely wear beautiful hats with their outfits.

Zara wore her mother's Meander tiara for her wedding. I don't think there's really been any occasions for coronets in recent memory but I'm sure if I'm wrong, someone else will know.

Yeah for her wedding, but I'm not sure she'll wear one for her uncles coronation.
