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.

It actually looks too big on MC.
I thought it looked somewhat large, too. I wonder if she'll alter it to size as Mary did with her tiara; she could make some nice matching diamond earrings.

Both look so elegant and crown princess Marie Chantal's tiara is beautiful,it's nice to see the crown princess of Greece in some royal jewelry.

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.

Would anyone know if MC's tiara opens at the back or is fully enclosed?

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.

From old photos of Queen Frederika, the tiara is open in the back.

Thank you for clarification of the tiara's whereabouts as well as whether it was open or closed.

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.

Ok..we have VERY clearly been shown proof it has been in the family this whole time, even before Marie Chantal married into it. Lord almighty.. the internet just feeds into conspiracy theories.

We do not know why they waited so long...and I presume since none of us know them personally, we may not ever know.

I don't understand why Anne Marie wouldn't have worn the tiara for herself.

"I don't understand why Anne Marie wouldn't have worn the tiara for herself. "

As has been said elsewhere, maybe she just doesn't like it? Or maybe it has some bad association for her. Who knows? I'm just happy the darn thing is out of the vaults!

As much as the tiara is a dream come true for all royal watchers, it is bit too big for MC, maybe she should have worn it wo a base

There is also the circle tiara but i think it belongs to Princess Irene. As she never attends white tie Galas we don't see it.

I am SHOCKED to see this tiara! For so long I think many people assumed this tiara had been sold or given to another family member, lost or stolen...

...this gives me hope about a number of tiaras and other pieces that are likely sitting idle in family vaults.

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.
