Wow, I didn't realize that this was the third time she has worn these diamond earrings this year. They are huge!

What's that? They are really real! And, this is the third time she's worn them! Oh dear, I think the hamster fell off the wheel!

I think they are just as beautiful, be it precious gems or crystal. Swarovski has made sparkle and bling possible for everyone, and often I see no difference between e.g. fine pearls and pure costume whatsits. Either way, one will feel adorned. :)

Does a photo shoot count?

Well, as long as someone is wearing a tiara , it does to me! Plus I felt I had to include it as it's been three years since she last wore a tiara at the time.

And I love how it looks!!!! Everyone has their own opinion, though "hate" seems a rather strong word.

Maybe after her twins are born she will feel less inhibited about wearing a tiara. There seems to be a sentiment online and in the media that a Royal consort has not "arrived" until she has produced an heir. Which must make life very painful for women like CP Masako, and dowager Queen Fabiola.

If that is in fact the problem maybe the birth of her babies will give her confidence.


ETA: I agree with Princess of Durham...I love the way Charlene's tiara looks in that photo!

I would love if Charlene wore the Cartier Pearl tiara. I hope Caroline would let her borrow it someday.

Ha! I doubt it. She hardly wears the tiaras she has now. I think she's just not into them which is a shame. To have all those remarkable, history making jewels and she doesn't wear them.

One can dream! Imo the fringe tiara would be gorgeous with Charlene's short hair, and she would look good in Grace's ruby tiara. But I don't expect to see that in real life. Firstly the Grimaldis seem to have no tradition for passing jewels from Princess to Princess. And secondly Charlene seem not the kind of person who revels in heirloom jewels.

I just came to my mind that we soon might seen the "push present" :) If Albert gave her a gorgeous necklace for the wedding I cannpt imagine now what he will give her for the birth of their children...

I have great hopes for Charlene wearing tiaras as she gets older. I think as Europe gradually moves out of recession, we are more likely to see tiara wearing. On another point, I imagine Albert would like one of Grace's tiaras to end up with his daughter.

I don't think the recession is the problem. Charlene has deliberately not worn tiaras to official state functions where one is required. Which is actually quite disrespectful. Besides her wedding and a magazine article she has not worn a tiara at all.

I agree. I was baffled and irritated to see Charlene posing on the cover of a celeb magazine wearing a tiara, given that she has refused to wear one on occasions that are more appropriate and befitting her status(ie. the wedding of Princess Madeleine)

Now that she has become a mother and is entering a new stage of her career as princess consort, I am hoping her attitude will change and she will become more confident about wearing her jewels.

Perhaps Prince Albert II will give his wife some new jewels to celebrate the birth of the twins!

Perhaps, she thinks they are foolish symbols of a day gone by.

If we can't count on a princess to wear a tiara then what can we count on? What's the use of a monarchy then? Let's get philosophical here...😉

You know COUNTESS that's actually a good point, and a lot of people do feel that way. So then why agree to receive one's from one husband in the first place? Why not insist that he use the money for a more meaningful gift/gesture like a donation to a favorite charity? Then explain this in some respected, prestigious publication that would make Royal watchers sit up and take note?

More troubling, why wear the foolish symbol on the cover of Hola, posing like some Almanach de Gotha version of Kim Kardashian?
