I think it is lovely, and I would love to see it somehow end up to the main line of the BRF - Camilla would do it justice!

Did anybody get to see pictures of the tiara that the Duchess used whilst hosting the banquet at the Guildhall for the President of Ireland?

The Gloucester collection is one of the most extensive outside of the main royal collection - and it will be a shame that there will be no use for the children in the years to come to wear the man tiaras. the collection will likely be sold unless it is gifted back to main royal collection

Let's hope it is gifted back to the royal collection! It would be shame for it to be sold and broken down.

It would indeed be sad if the jewels were sold off, but sometimes one has to let things go. And to be honest, I don't see why they should be 'gifted back'. They are lawful possessions of the Gloucesters, and the Gloucesters have every right to give them to their children. Why deprive the kids of their heritage, and give the jewels to distant relatives who are x-times as rich as your kids will ever be? Your children might have to sell the stuff, but at least they will have the money in order to give the grandchildren and great-grandchildren a better start in live. I really hope that the mainline of the family would think about buying back some of the most important heirlooms, but I am also convinced that the Gloucester kids deserve the financial benefit from the jewels.

I agree Tilia.
Duchess Brigitte of Gloucester a Dane communor did not marry the Heir of the House.
As her brother in law died in an accident she is a great Duchess.

The Iveagh Tiara looked amazing when Lady Rose wore it at her wedding. I guess in times to come, if there is no need to sell it, it will be kept for sentimental reasons if nothing else.

The Iveagh tiara makes a gorgeous wedding tiara and Lady Rose wore it beautifully. I was really disappointed that Lady Davina decided against a wedding tiara.

Also I still wonder which tiara the Countess of Ulster wore at her wedding. It looks like nothing I have ever seen on either of the Duchesses. Could it be from her own family?

I assume that the family will hang on to at least some of the heirlooms, so that future brides will have something to wear.

Death duties in Britain are punitive. Its the reason why so my heirlooms are sold. Unfortunately its probably the fate that the Gloucester's jewels will come to

Tilia - I quite agree with you "gifting back" the jewels to the mainline implies a sort of present giving ! Why should the heirs to the Dukedom of Gloucester have to suffer in this way - the jewels will form the major part of their inheritance and indeed the simplest heirlooms to dispose of. None of these jewels were ever really favoured pieces worn by generations of Royals and have only really become known as we have seen the Duchess and her late mother in law wear them!

An unusual brooch worn by the Duchess of Gloucester yesterday. Perhaps an anniversary gift from the Duke for their 40th anniversary in 2012 as it combines both of their initials?

No this brooch was an early present to the Duchess, it dates from the early 1970's.
