Princess Astrid, Prince Lorenz and Prince Laurent are present as well.
It is odd that Laurent is present, but Claire isn't.

Is Astrid wearing the Savoy-Aosta tiara ? We wish we had closer pictures.

It was expected that the Queen would choose the Wolfers for this banquet as she is probably reserving her bigger tiaras like the full version of the Nine Provinces or, hopefully, Queen Fabiola's Spanish tiara for more regal events later this year like King Carl Gustaf's birthday dinner, or the state visits to Japan and the Netherlands.

Yes, it is her smallest tiara.
She wore four tiaras since her wedding:
- Queen Paola's Art Deco tiara (only on her wedding day)
- Her own Laurel wreath tiara (a wedding present from the Belgian Nobility Association)
- the Nine Provinces Tiara (tiara for the Queen of the Belgians, can be worn in two different ways, a smaller version and a bigger version)
- the Wolfers tiara (inherited from Queen Fabiola)

We do not know if she inherited the Spanish tiara from Queen Fabiola as well. That would be fabulous, it can be worn in different forms. This november, there will be a Belgian state visit to the Netherlands. Now that will be nice for jewelwatchers!

Seems strange to me that princess Claire is not present. She should have bene when Laurent is.

Yes I've just noticed that and no Princess Claire, but at least Astrid and Lorenz are there.

Can she only wear the same tiara once? It just seems odd IMO, now that she is queen, she is wearing a less substantive tiara than her SIL. It just seems to me, at least with other royals (the Belgians don't have as many tiaras as others it seems), that the queen would normally have the more substantial tiara presence at an event.

I think it's something he bought at the garage-sale Henrik of Denmark had after retiring.

Princess Astrid has only one tiara availible to her. And she often wore it for State Banquets when her mother wore the art deco Bandeau whichb is also smaller then the Sayoy Aosta tiara.

Prince Laurent's intentional breach of the protocol was not amusing. Prince Laurent acts like a spoilt child at this point.

On a different note, Frau Schadt's gown was quite shiny in a cheap way.

Not the best of Her Majesty´s gowns IMO. The dress of Mrs. Schadt looks much more elegant.

If it is longer it is the small bandeau of the 9 Province tiara.

Doesn't it look a bit to pointy for the bandeau?

Still not great quality for detail, but it does seem too long for the wolfers. Starting to look like one of the forms of the 9 provinces.

Could it be a "new" tiara ? Or a lost one ?

I agree it is too pointy to be the base of the Nine Provinces.

It looks a bit like a baby fringe

Mathilde doesn't own a baby fringe as far as we know xD

It might be just her own laurel tiara.

Size does not always matter... The diamonds in the Wolfers Diadem are far better of carat, cut, color and clarity than -for an example- the diamonds in her bigger laurel wreath diadem. Making the Wolfers Diadem more valuable and exquisite.
