She manages to look so elegant in anything she wears.

Princess Alexandra always looks so beautiful, but I wonder why she only has one tiara, that she wears at every single gala event. I think the Royal Family should get her one more and then she could mix up her style a bit at these gala events.

She only possession of the one tiara. I haven't seen her ever wear any other. I think that if she were going to borrow another it would be from her mother-in-law, but either Queen Margrethe isn't responsive to that suggestion or Alexandra may simply not be bothered enough by having one tiara to borrow another or accept if Queen Margrethe has offered.

I think that another one has not been purchased by Alexandra or her husband because as I stated, the one may suit Alex just fine or for financial reasons. I wonder about the issue of finances particularly because I have noticed that since her marriage Alex has acquired other jewelry. However, it is unlikely that any of the new pieces cost nearly as much as that of the price of a new tiara.

Alexandra and Joachim are more than comfortable financially. Joachim receives 2 million Kroner per annum. Plus they have a profitable working farm/estate and hotel,from which they derive the bulk of their income. A few years ago (5?) their personal worth was estimated at about &#036;12 million (not kroner).

Based off of what I&#39;ve seen at Christies or Sotheby&#39;s, a cute, small tiara would not be more then a few thousand, which is what a nice necklace could end up costing.

I guess she has to take into consideration the cut, quality, and clarity of the stones too. A princess can&#39;t go around in inferior quality stones either. :P

Details :) :-P

So, do you guys think we will see a new gala dress for the ceremonies leading up to Frederik&#39;s wedding, or will she recycle some of her pretty, albeit previously worn, gala dresses?

Personally, I think we will see new gowns, and quite possibly some new jewels too. After all, this is a historical event for the Danes. More specifically, with Mary being given new jewels, etc. I think Alexandra may be given some new items too, as M & H may not want her to feel &#39;left out&#39;.

Yay for new dresses&#33; Maybe a new tiara she can borrow? (Or did you mean earrings/necklace/brooch when you said Jewels?)

Princess Alexandra would look beautiful in a burlap sack - so care must be taken that she does not "outshine" the bride and future crown princess. I think Alexandra is the most elegant of her generation.

true, but that shouldn&#39;t mean that she should never get any new things.

Was the purple dress she wore in her offical pictures at the Royal House website a dress she&#39;s worn to any galas? Or is it considered a "new" dress?

I was thinking more of the latter.

But who knows, she may be lent another tiara. However, I&#39;m nota big fan of the Danish collection and, IMO, she already has one of the better pieces. Besides, there isn&#39;t much to go around. I don&#39;t see QM lending out the Nassau tiara (she&#39;ll probably wear that herself), and the emerald tiara belongs to the crown jewels. Nor do I see her lending out the floral tiara.
The other ones are not as nice as the one Anastasia Mihailovna&#39;s diamond drop tiara (the one Alexandra now wears).

If we&#39;re thinking of the same dress, yes, she did wear it in the past. She wore it during the jubilee celebrations in 1997 (to the opera), and to the state dinner in honour of King Hussein and Queen Noor in 1998.

It does not matter if she put on an old gown as long as it is not dark or black color dress she wore since Mary getting into the royal scene. She is petite, and bright color gown suits her. I would think the yellow one in the official portrait is quite grandiore, and I have not seen her recycle that one yet.

She is beautiful and she wears bright colors wonderfully.

I hope she is in something new and bright. It will be interesting to see if a rivalry gets underway between them.
