I don't really like her tiara. Such a beautiful girl and dress and then that thing on her head. But she probally didn't get much of a choice.

No she didn't the King decided that she shall wear this. According to me - this splendid tiara which is one of the most historical tiaras in the Bernadotte family was a very good choice.

I love the cameo tiara. I would love to see either one of the princesses wear it at one of their weddings.

I don't think that it was very flattering on Queen Silvia, however. I think that it has to do with the way in which the diademe is worn and the way in which Queen Silvia wore it was not as flattering as it could have been. I also don't think that her wedding gown did her must justice. She is so glamorous that I would have liked to have seen her wear something that suited her personality more. However, as I said before the cameo tiara is quite impressive and gorgeous, IMO.

Princess Birgitta and Princess Desirée also wore the cameo tiara for their weddings and it looked fantastic on Princess Desirée.

Here is Princess Desirée wearing the tiara on her wedding day. She looks absolutely stunning wearing the cameo tiara. I haven't seen many photographs of persons wearing this piece, but Princess Desirée simply looks radiant. I think that her choice of hairdo is also very becoming with the tiara which is really why (IMO) that she wears this piece so well.

I especially like the last one. I don't think we see enough of the King's sisters. (Are they still classed as official members of the Royal Family or are the three that married commoners classed the same as the Counts Bernadotte?)

I have read that prior to his marriage, HM's youngest sister was his official hostess to state visits and major events. (I know she accompanied him on his state visit to Scotland in 1975.) Does anyone have any photographs of this?

And doesn't Lillian look just stunning hovering in the background of that photo. She was such a beautiful woman in her 60s. What an amazing lady she must be.

Cheers

Davo

In that first picture of Princess Desiree's wedding it appears that she is wearing the family lace veil along with a stylish 60's veil as well. What do you all think? Is she wearing two veils?


Does anyone know if there are video clips on the internet of their wedding?

Jacqueline, I have to agree with you whole-heartedly. I think that Princess Desiree's choice of hairdo accentuated the beauty of this extraordinary tiara. Queen Silvia and Princess Birgitta both wore their hair up, which made the tiara stand out and the focal point, while their faces should have been the focal point and the tiara a lovely and spectacular accessory.

I think that Silvia's dress is lovely, but I don't think it was a good dress for her. I think that Silvia is indeed a beautiful and glamorous woman and her dress should've reflected that. I feel that it covered her up too much.

I´m so sorry Josefine but I think that one of the pictures isn´t from C-G´s and Silvias wedding.

It´s the picture two steps back from this comment. The picture is taken in Slottskyrkan ( the church at the Royal Castle) and they where married in Storkyrkan. And I think that the fourth person at the front road ( to the right of Queen Ingrid of Denmark) is C-G himself. This must be one of his sisters weddings, i don´t know if Princess Christina got married in Slottskyrkan but that is my guess if I look at the clothes and so on...
Sorry, i don´t want to be a "besserwisser"-take this comment the right way please...
Love Alva

Filling in some more blanks ...

Row Two: King Frederik and Queen Ingrid (in the purple-print satin dress) of Denmark
Row Three: In the lilac dress and head wrap, Crown Princess Margrethe of Denmark, (next to the Grand Duke of Luxembourg) is the husband of Margrethe, Prince Henrik
... I can't seem to pick out the King's sisters or the Queen's siblings.
