Mathilde still has her laurel tiara, which she wears as a necklace today. She hasn't worn it for the few tiara events she had since she is Queen, but it was clear that it is still available for her.

The Wolfer's tiara has belonged to Queen Fabiola. After her death it was not known if it was still in the family, or if it had gone to Fabiola's foundation, together with the bulk of her estate. Today's banquet shows that it still belongs to the Royal family.

Thanks for the clarification!
It is great that Queen Mathilde has one more tiara at her disposal. I completely forgot about the Laurel Wreath tiara. It was the wedding gift from the Belgian nobility.

Yes it is wonderful! For you, as a Belgian lady, it must be even more special than to the bulk of us tiara lovers. Queen Mathilde is such a lovely lady, she really deserves these jewels.

I'm not keen on the Laurel wreath as a necklace,I prefer it as a tiara.

Here are some blogs about it:
Saturday Sparkler: The Wolfers Tiara | The Court Jeweller
The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Tiara Thursday: The Wolfers Necklace Tiara
De Wolfers-tiara - All Things Royal
Tiara Mania: Diamond Necklace Tiara

As you can see, it also makes a very nice diamond necklace. So we can look forward to Mathilde wearing it as necklace as well.

The good thing at the wolfers tiara is that it can also be worn as necklace. For example Queen Fabiola often paired it with the Nine provinces tiara to which i think the laurel wreath tiara would not work as the styles are so different.

Queen Mathilde wears for the first time Queen Fabiola's present from the belgians.
I don't know if we will see the Mrs Franco's tiara!

I have to admit to being totally underwhelmed. I wish she had worn her Laurel Leaf as a tiara and the Wolfers as a necklace because the Laurel Leaf has an elegance and purity of line that the Wolfers lacks.

Agree. But I think because it was the first time wore it preferred to do so wearing as tiara. I guess we will see as necklace combined perhaps with 9-province tiara as did Fabiola.

It is NOT Franco's diadem but it was a gift from Spain. That Franco, at that moment, was the head of state does not make it a gift from him.
