I prefer the way Princess Mathilde arranged the veil on her wedding day, instead of the way Princess Claire did. I liked very much Maxima's.

Adding too my list.
Claire Coombs

Crown Princess Margarethe of Denmark

Is Queen Margrethe's veil the same as Princess Mary's?

I actually prefered the way Claire wore it; I believe that Mathilde and Paola wore it very similarly.

When I look at the pictures closely I do not think it is the same veil unless the border the lace is different at various places.

Mathilde has a sort of leaf pattern and Clair does not.

The way it is worn seems similar to me, the tiara is just different but I would love to hear what makes the difference.

Yes, Princess Mary wore the same wedding veil as Queen Margrethe at her wedding. The veil was first worn by Princess Margaret of Connaught upon her marriage to Prince Gustav Adolf of Sweden in 1905. It has since then been worn by her daughter Queen Ingrid and grand-daughters, Queen Margrethe, Princess Benedikte, Queen Anne-Marie and later great grand-daughters Princess Alexandra of Berleburg and Princess Alexia of Greece. Wonderful tradition!!

I'm new to Royalty, so I could be wrong, but perhaps then-Princess Elizabeth and Lady Diana Spencer wore tiaras because they had them in their family, whilst Sarah Ferguson did not?

Sarah Ferguson first wore flowers to hold her veil and later, after the veil was removed, she wore a tiara. Information is on the previous page.

My all time favourite has to be Maxima's. It was just pure perfection.

Yes, I liked that idea too. Indeed, I thought she was an absolutely gorgeous bride. I loved Diana's veil, though, with all those sequins on it.

from the royal webbsite about crown princess victoria of swedens vail



The Bridal Veil



The Crown Princess was wearing Queen Sofia's lace veil. It is the same veil that was worn by Crown Princess Victoria's mother, Queen Silvia, at her marriage to King Carl Gustaf in 1976.
This veil was given by Queen Sofia to her youngest son, Prince Eugen. Prince Eugen then passed the veil on to Princess Sibylla, who wore it under a garland of myrtle at her marriage to Prince Gustaf Adolf in Koburg in 1932.

Queen Sofia's veil was also worn by the Princesses Désirée in 1964, Margaretha in 1964 and Christina in 1974.

Crown Princess Mette-Marit's long bridal veil made her look like Rapunzel.

Oh, I love this topic! A veil can make or break the entire bridal ensemble, imo! Here are my favorites:

Maxima of the Netherlands
Fabiola of Belgium
Cristina of Spain
Birgitta of Sweden
Claire of Belgium
Charlene of Monaco
Zara Phillips(veil only...don't care for the dress at all!)
