By the way, I don’t really think that the shape of the tiara suits her face. It’s a pity!
That was really strange. I don't really like how she wears it. I think it should be placed a bit more up the head and upright so that the sides go back insteady of going done one the sides.

The pose is a bit underwhelming might have had more of an impact had the tiara worn with the Order of St.Charles and a bit more formal looking!

I could not agree more.
But I also think, that the angle of the head is unfortunate - as well as the coiffure..... with another hairdo (and also another face expression) the tiara would look great on her

A very stunning tiara on the a beautiful head, this tiara fits her very well. she wears this tiara as the princesses and queens wore their tiaras in the years 1920 1930 like queen Elizabeth of belgium, the grand duchess of Luxemburg and so

It looks like it is almost a halo style tiara.

I guess the hair is supposed to look like waves to underline the tiara (to me it looks like a hairstyle medusa would wear). I don't like the styling (hairstyle, 'outfit') or Charlene's pose at all but that piece of jewellery is stunning.

She looks like she has just woken up and put that tiara on as a headband before she washes her face. And it makes me feel sad that she poses with a tiara for a magazine, but doesn't want to wear a tiara at royal events where tiara would have been needed.
The tiara is beautiful, but she wears it on a wrong way.

The way she wears the tiara to the front of her head reminds me of the way the African ladies in South Africa wear their headscarves/bandanas right on the hairline. Maybe she was thinking that too...

I have mixed feelings about the diadem because I dislike the picture: far too celebrity-like modelling and nothing which refers to her position. She could have posed in the fabulous Cour d'Honneur of the palais princier, or next to the throne in the magnificent Throne Room.

This person with that diadem could have been any model, despite the diadem. I am sorry to say I am deeply disappointed with how it looks.

I first thought it was at an occasion where she finally wore the tiara, so it's disappointing that it's only for the cover of a magazine and not for an event. Maybe it's Charlene's hairstyle, but I don't like how it looks on her. Maybe it's the V shape or "hairband" position, but I'm not enthralled by this tiara the more I see it.

Ditto. She is an amazingly lovely woman who happens to be a Princess Consort, not a TV starlet. As I posted in another thread, the Palace should have released official photos of Charlene wearing her tiara...not casually posed on the cover of a celebrity magazine.

Love it! Charlene looks stunning with this tiara. I don't really understand why she chose to wear it for a fotoshoot with Hola but I am happy to see her finally wearing it. Now if we could get official pictures of Charlene with the tiara ..... . 😄

She is stunning as always (and a stunning tiara, although i still prefer the foam tiara of her recent new jewelry), but to me she looks like she's playing the role of princess rather than being one..

It is a missed opportunity. After all these years Charlène still not feels as THE Princess of Monaco. I have the feeling that she still misses the stature, the prèsence and the natural "grandness" as the First Lady of the principality. She still seems not knowing her place, she still seems overshadowed by Princess Caroline and the Casiraghi clan.

The palais princier could have used this opportunity to frame Charlène for once and for all as Son Altesse Sérénissime la Princesse de Monaco, wearing a stunning regal gown, with the decorations belonging to the Ordre de Saint-Charles, historical jewels and set in a sceney which stresses her position. For an example in one of those majestic marble stairways of the palais princier, or seated next to the throne, or looking out over the ramparts of the palace.

The Princess of Monaco Jewellery [Charlene]

I am interested to know what the text of the article is. Is there any specific reason given for Charlene to be wearing the tiara, do other pictures inside the magazine show her wearing other important pieces of jewellery? As I posted on another thread, I think this is bad judgement by Charlene to choose a celebrity magazine as the first proper outing for this significant item in what appears to be basically a fashion shoot. This tiara was prominently displayed in the Oceanographic Museum following the wedding suggesting its importance. Somehow I don't think Albert had Hola in mind when he commissioned it.

Such photoshoots should give Charlene some of the gravitas and the credibility she seems to miss compared to the other European CP's. I am a big believer in the power of visual image to make a statement, and I am afraid the only statement HSH makes by appearing like that on 2nd rate celebrity magazine covers is that she is...one of them.

It's just not a good image for Charlene, Albert or Monaco even though she does look very beautiful. She appears more like a celebrity than a princess, imo.

Hmm. Beautiful tiara, worthy of more dignified portrayals in my opinion. Disappointing.
