I understand that MC family is quite wealthy - so why should she sell it - espescially with such a huge family and lots of daughters in law to come.
BTW - does anybody know the provenience of this particular fringe tiara?
I read on another board a long time ago that her father Robert Miller gave her the fringe tiara as a wedding gift.
That indeed is a tiara! I wonder if she has better earrings to go with it as IMO the ones she chose didn't quite go with the tiara. And she either needs a big wig or a big hairdo since the tiara looked too big for her head. Maybe they could change the base cover to another shade and make a slight adjustment to the base like they did with CP Mary's ruby tiara.
Seeing Queen Frederika's tiara pop up makes me hope that the Poltimore would suddenly make a surprise outing... Please tell me Mr. Middleton has secretly bought it..? Oh, I really don't care but it would be nice to see "new" tiaras come back to use for a change. There are many princesses and queens that need new bling for the parties.
There's speculation on the Jubilee thread that the tiara may have gone on the market and Marie Chantal purchased it at auction. So that could be why it's on her head and not the Queen of Greece's. In any event, MC brought it home tonight out of all the tiaras!
Queen Frederika's tiara was never on the market. Roger, a royal Swedish author interviewed Queen Anne-Marie for his book about Queen Ingrid and A-M told him that the tiara was still in the family.
This is the tiara surprise of the year! There have been rumours for years that the tiara was still in the family and that it would make a reappearance eventually but even those couldn't prepare me for actually seeing it. Its such a lovely and grand tiara. My only complaint is that the base is too big, it should be smaller so it sits closer to the head and less obvious to the eye.
My theory is that MC actually owns this tiara and has been waiting years for the right time to wear it. I would guess and say the GRF needed money and was going to secretly sell it and instead MC bought it up, the royal family gets money and the jewels stay in the family.
I loved to see it again! For some time I had hopes that it would turn up on Anne-Marie soon. So it was MC. So the hair wasn't perfect for this whopper. So the base showed. So what?
I'm still thrilled.
Now I only want a confirmed (!) explanation why it took so long. But one can't have everything, sigh.
