Good for him. Interesting design, too. Love the hanging emerald pendants.

Exclamation Queen Victoria's Crown

Why is it that we dont see any member of the royal family wearing Queen Victoria's small crown? Why doesnt the queen wear it. I think its a beautiful crown. Do they still have it?

They do. It's on display in the Tower of London.

It is no longer worn because the Queen Mum had a crown made for the coronation which matched the Imperial State Crown. Also, it's miniature in size, not the size of a proper crown.

Good point. I'd have thought a small crown would have plenty of uses

Yes many people ignore it till now and that's what it’s so wonderful with blogging on TheRoyalforums nowadays. The Kingdom of Madagascar has been recognized for the first time by a great power, Great Britain in 1817 although some principalities have escaped to the Kingdom of the Center.It ends in 1897 six months after the colonization of the Big Island by France. But let's go back to the Malagasy royal jewels now. Here's an array of the same pictures below :







1 The Coral Tiara of the Queen RANAVALONA III of Madagascar:



2 A part of the last Queen of Madagascar’s Coral full dress:


3 The Queen RANAVALONA III portraited by Trevor HADDON in London – Credit Photo : Rominia:


The picture of the Queen (3) with her light diamond tiara and the State Crown on her right is from a Trevor HADDON portrait made in London from photography.
It‘s described as a light diamond tiara topped with “brillants” and centered with an enamel “médaillon” of the royal arms. It is a private jewel purchased in Paris in early 1887 on her own cassette. She will bring it with her in exile in Algiers in 1899.

If she reigns today on our Great Island, Ranavalona III would surely be trimmed with diamonds but also multicolored fancy sapphires as the country abounds.
However the Queen was portrayed (4) with the massive gold state crown with seven spearheads (5) and the small gold crown decorated with lilies and royal insignia (6 - 7) the seven spareheads.
The state crown is yet now exposed at the Museum , it was made by Malagasy jewelers with the first kilogram of gold officially mined in the country inca.1890

4 The Queen RANAVALONA III of Madagascar (1861-1917) with the gold State Crown – “coloured” portrait:


5 & 5a The massive gold state crown with 7 spearheads:

From Wiki:

Some of the Crown Jewels and the original Thrones of the Kingdom of Hawaii reside within the custody of the Bishop Museum. Copies of the thrones can be seen at Iolani Palace. Some lie in state with the royals at the Royal Mausoleum at Mauna Ala. Feather cloak and wear are among the oldest of Hawaiian regalias: Nahienaena's Pa'u, the 180 feather skirt of Nahienaena and later the funeral attire for the dead monarch while lying in state; Kiwalao's Cloak aka Kamehameha's Cloak, the cloak won by Kamehameha I during his battle with Kiwalao; and Liloa's Kaei, the feather belt of Liloa, the 14th century King of Hawaii. Also the Kiha-pu or the War Trumpet (Conch Shell) of Kihanuilulumoku which is one generation older than Liloa's Kaei.

Do the royals of Luxembourg have Regalia? If so, does anyone have pictures of them?

^ I just found the answer to my question. I guess they don't because I saw a video of GD Henri and GD Maria Teresa during their induction service and they don't have any crowns or robes. They wear sashes and the Duke sits on a big thrown. That's about it.
