So delicate. I would have a hard time not wearing them. I love the delicacy of them.

I think the Floral tiara might be her favourite tiara just like those diamond stars were her favourite earrings

To be honest I really wish Letizia had a tiara of her own ,but it was nice to see the beautiful fleur de lys brooch again.

It was what I expected. And I think that the floral tiara is a favourite of the whole SRF. Sofia wore very often, Christina chose it for her wedding. It is a very beautiful tiara, imo, and it suits Letizia's facial shape perfectly. Also I'm glad that Letizia seems to have given up on loose tiara hair. This up-do once again was very flattering.


... but I'd still like to see a bit more rotation in her jewels. We couldn't really expect one of the big gun tiaras for this visit, yet I'd appreciate another outing of the Melleria shell tiara (at least).

actually, if we base it on which tiara she's worn the most, her favorite is the Prussian. It's been a few years since she last wore it, but she's worn it (if I've counted correctly) 13 times, compared to 9 times with the Floral, and once with the Shell.

She is the Queen. She has access to all major diadems in the Spanish royal collection.

But then we must not forget thet the floral tiara was a favourite of Dona Sofia as well. Very often the floral tiara was not available for the then Princess of Asturias, because her mil wore it.

My files might not be complete, but I found only one event when Letizia wore the Prussian while the floral stayed in the vault. That was the French SV when Sofia wore the small ruby tiara. I makes sense that Letizia also wore a small tiara for this banquet.

Letizia has worn the Prussian tiara quite a few times ,a tiara which I think suited her rather well.

Most of the SRF tiaras are privately owned by Queen Sofia, so apart from the large Fleur-de-Lys tiara, she has to borrow the rest.

I am not sure that all tiaras are privately owned by Sofia, most of them may be private property of Sofia or JC but will be used by the King's family.

If there is one tiara that is truly private property of Sofia it's the Prussian tiara, but I do think that it will remain with the King's family as well. It was Queen Letizia's wedding tiara after all, and it may pass directly to Leonor.

Victoria Marichalar could wear her father's family tiara for her wedding, not sure about Irene Urdangarin. Maybe the royal touch will be gone for Cristina's kids when they come of age.

We know that the tiaras are or at least were once owned by JC and/or Sofia. But maybe they gave one or more as gift to the new monarchs? Anyway, I don't think it matters much who owns the individual tiara. I'm convinced the the former monarchs have made sure that the new Queen has access to the jewels she needs for her job. Or can you imagine that Sophia is holding back her larger tiaras and says: "not before I die!" ?

What I can imagine is that Sophia is keeping Niarchos rubies to herself. So far she has never shared them with any of the younger royals. And since they have nor royal provenance she may consider them as her most private tiara.

I think King Felipe would also loan a tiara to his niece for her Wedding Day.

A big favorite for a long time of Queen Sofia was also the Mellerio Shell tiara. In the early years of her marriage when Infanta Cristina also still attended State Banquets she wore often the floral tiara and Letizia the prussian tiara or the other way.

Letizia unlike her mother in law doesn't really seem to like wearing any jewelry,if I was Sofia I'd keep the Niarchos rubies rather than see them gather dust!

I agree, Christina's children will have relatives who would lend them wedding tiaras, either their uncle the king, or their grandmother Dona Sofia who hopefully will live to see the proud day.

When there was more than one royal lady at a gala one of them would usually wear the floral. I don't blame them, because I think it's a very beautiful and flattering jewel.
During the past few years Sofia has rarely worn the shell tiara. And when she did, someone else wore the floral at that event.

Hehe, unfortunatels Sofia doesn't have many events to undust the rubies herself these days.

For the necklace yes. But the bandeau/tiara urgently needs a better setting/base. It really is a pity that Letizia doe never wear one of the many necklaces from the collection.

She used to wear several necklaces during the early years of her marriages. For some strange reason she stopped doing so, which is a pity.

It all went bit by bit watches,necklaces,bangles and the rings,for a time all she wore was those wretched diamond star earrings. Letizia has been a big disappointment so far as queen on the jewel front.
