Are they still doing tiaras at the Vatican? When was the last time a Royal with her tiara was seen there?

At the last Swedish SV to Italy in 2009 Queen Silvia wore even two tiaras: the nine prongs at the State Banquet and the ruby tiara at the return banquet. Of course, that was before the crisis.

So it is a real State Visit to the Holy See. Under Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI this would have seen everything in full splendor: the Pope himswelf wearing choir dress topped with a red or white mozzetta, the guests in white tie and long dress with diadem.

The current Pope however seems not to attach a lot to ceremonial and protocol. State Visit? Official Visit? Private audience? He just wears his daily soutane and the protocol for guests is free for interpretation. So I have no any expectation of seeing King Willem-Alexander in white tie and Queen Máxima in long dress with diadem.

Queen Silvia in 1991 seems last. And other then Elizabeth in 1980, seems to have gone out of fashion to do so back in the 1960s.

I try to not compare royals, but this so reminded me of one of the more famous "Di looking sad, bored" photos. Max is still beautiful in this! And I'm NOT saying she is either sad or bored - but has definitely been caught in a moment.

Maybe Máxima will surprise us and show up at the Vatican with a tiara while Willem-Alexander will be in white tie. After all, as you said, it is an actual state visit.

I think it is safe to say it is becoming her favorite tiara/ parure along with Queen Emma's sapphires. It is unfortunate though that she doesn't wear the smaller Orange-Nassau pieces more often, e.g.. the emerald or the aquamarine tiaras, which would be perfect for black tie dinners in state visits to a republic like Italy.

Tiaras were long gone even before Pope Benedict XVI. Like Countessmeout said, the last person to wear a tiara at the Vatican was Queen Silvia in 1991 and Benedict didn't become pope until 2005.

Here's a photo series of all the photographed instances of royal ladies wearing tiaras at the Vatican. I think it might be of some interest to us here.

It looks like the base from the Antique Pearl Tiara. The same that Queen Maxima wore in 2001, before she became crown princess!
