On the Alexander Palace forum this subject came up a few years ago. A poster there suggested that as officials in the Danish Embassy had got Queen Olga of Greece's jewellery out of Russia during the revolution, the Greek RF might have had an plan for their valuables formulated with the same Embassy as the situation deteriorated for them in Greece. It's an idea anyway, as there are such strong links between the royal families of the two countries.

The big sapphire was inherited by one of her children (probably irene) and was sold at auction to a Qatari museum in 2003. The tiara you refer to i assume was the necklace that was made to fit the sapphire - since this hasn't been seen since the 1970s (irene often wore it as a tiara) this might be the tiara she was referring to. Its assumed to be sold as its not been seen since, althogh it could well have been broken down for other uses, simply in need of repair etc....

Queen Freidiriki, after leaving Greece in 1967, she never sold her jewels. The legacy of Queen Sophia(she was Princess of Prussian), was sold by King Paul to restore, the Palaceof Tatoi and the Royal Palace of Athens. And I remember that during the World War ,and then , was when queen Freideriki had said that she had to sold her own jewelry.

You are not talking about the Romanov jewels? They are not sold.

Tiara of MC has no relationship with the Romanov family or historical value. In an old interview, the journalist asks MC, if she has jewels with historical value, and focuses on the Romanov family, the answer was, that she had no jewels of historical value, but her mother in law, yes.

Regarding Tiara of Marie Chantal, she used this tiara at the wedding of Prince of sweden, I remember.

And diamond tiara which was widely used by Queen Freideriki, it was of Queen Sophia of Greece, it was never sold, but the Queen Anna María has never used it, and I understand why she has not used that tiara, because frankly, must be very heavy, uncomfortable and sorry to Marie Chantal did not fit on the head. The jewels of the princess Irini I do not know about it, but she is a woman who has never given great value to the jewels.

the Tiara of Marie chantal has no historical value, so it catches my attention, because the value of the tiaras of European royal houses is in the history, not in the economic value of the jewel. It strikes me that Princess Tatiana at your wedding used a jewel of the Greek royal family, and Marie Chantal no.

The Diamond Circles Tiara tiara of Princess Irene was still in the family up until the early 90's as her niece Infanta Elena wore it but is hasn't been seen since.

I can imagine given how low-key Princess Irene is that she could still have her tiara and simply choose not to wear it very often anymore.

I think people are always surprised when long forgotten tiaras reappear but I guess when you have plenty of tiaras like Queen Anne-Marie you don't worry about wearing them all just to prove you still have them. The big diamond tiara MC wore looked very big and heavy and I think Anne-Marie would give it a miss in favour of her other tiaras which all seem much lighter and easier to wear.

That is also my thougt. Unlike her brother and his Family she does not attend the big Events in Denmark where tiaras are worn. So probably she has not the occasions to wear it.

She would be more likely IMO to wear a tiara in Spain and the RF there very rarely wear tiaras. I doubt, given how close she is to her sister with all the resources that brings that she would need cash that much to sell a family heirloom.

That's what i mean. She usually attends more Family Events in Spain but they are no tiara occasion's so no Events for Irene to wear a tiara.
