Although I would agree that the tiara is a good match for the dress, I am for some reason not a big fan of this tiara.....
But hey, after all, Letizia wearing a tiara!

That was the Prussian Tiara, the Floral Tiara was last seen at the Swedish wedding.

Zarzuela confirms that the tiara worn by Princess Letizia in Amsterdam was a gift from Franco to Queen Sofia due to her wedding with the king. The tiara was commissioned by Alfonso XII to his bride Maria Christina of Austria in 1879.

I don't understand why the Palace confirmed it,its widely known that Franco gave the Tiara to Princess Sofia as a wedding gift,don't know what the media are trying to cause controversy over this?

Maybe the important thing they wanted to say was, that the tiara was made for Queen Maria Cristina. Maybe the meaning is: the connection to the former queen is more important for us than the connection to Franco.

Absolutley,the media are just itching to stir up trouble for Spain's Royal family and its a tiara in this latest instance.

But it hasn't been known that Alfonso XII ordered it to Maria Christina, that it was sold sometime because the lack of money and bought back.

Some information about the floral tiara & pictures of all SRF ladies wearing it. As the article states, the pre-Franco history has been mysterious, I've heard for the first time that is has a SRF history and that it was bought back by Franco & not commissioned by him.

It was know before, that it was an antique piece, that it was't comissioned by Franco. But the info about Queen Maria Cristina is absolutely new to me. Afaik this was not publicly known before.

So far the Princess of Asturias wore a tiara 20 times:

All of Letizia 's Tiara looks so far

I always wondered why she only wore the shell tiara only onetime.

The Prussian Tiara seems to be the most worn one by Letizia,hopefully we might see her fleur de lys one if she attends Princess Madeleine's wedding.

No chance as this one is reserved for the Queen. We will have to wait for some time before we will see it in her.

I thought you are referring to the big fleur de Lys tiara from Ansorea. It would be nice if she would finally wear her own. Apparently she has another not seen tiara which she got as a Wedding gift by spanish Jeweler Carrera y Carrera.

Really??? I haven't heard about that one. Can you share more info?

I wonder if we will ever see her in any of her own tiaras (exciting that there are even two!). Now that the Spanish press has been entangled in the Franco-gift-tiara-story, I also wonder when we will see the floral tiara again? Or will they avoid this tiara in order to avoid more headlines about the gift from Franco?

Sigh, the SRF have such beautiful tiaras, but we hardly ever see them .
