is this tiara hers to keep or could this be Maximas tiara in the future?

Laurrentien wore this tiara at her wedding. I believe this one will only be used for the lesser 'gods' in the house of orange, so not by the queen or crownprincess...Margriet does not own tiara's , all the dutch tiara s belong to a family foundation & everybody is free to use these (officially, although I do not think it will be appreciated if Margriet will wear the huge SDtuart tiara for example..only the smaller ones)

Hi Josefine ... I think this is the event you are talking about. It looks like Margriet is wearing a tiara with emeralds in it (although it is pretty hard to tell). Sorry, it is the best picture I could find. The picture was taken in early May when the Governor General of Canada visited.

Good question Josefine! It's really hard to tell. It seems that most pictures of Margriet wearing a tiara are so small, that you can't really see much of the tiara.

But anyways, here are some pics in another tiara she has worn.

... and this is (I hope) yet another one ...

I like all of these tiaras, because they are so subdued, yet elegant

its the same tiara all the time :) The ears-of-wheat tiara can be worn with 2/4/6/8/10 ears I think, which explains why sometimes it is hardly visible while other times it is clearly there. I think it was onces property of Princess Wilhelmina of Orange (nee Princess of Prussia), wife of Stadholder Willem V, mother of King Willem I.

You are rioght about the emerald one. Maxima is wearing that one with pearls instead of the emeralds, but this way it is much nicer I think.

Thank you so much Marengo for clearing that up for me!

And it's nice to hear about the history of the tiara. Do you know how old it would be then? Sorry, my knowledge of the Dutch RF from previous centuries is not good. (There are just too many King Willem's & they get me all confused :confused:))

Also, does Margriet have any tiaras that are her own, or does the RF just share all of the tiaras?

Marengo 01-26-2006 07:23 AM

Well, Princess Wilhelmina was the one who was arrested by dutch 'patriots' at Goejanverwellesluis & got so angry that after her release she urged her brother, the king of Prussia to send an army. However, a few years later, she and her family had to flee to London in fishermansboats at Scheveningen, when the french armies of Napoleon invaded The Netherlands.

Margriet doesn't own any tiara herself. Everything is in the foundation (except the peacock ruby tiara, which was given to Princess Irene by Queen Wilhelmina, before the foundation was started). She owns however some nice bracelets and earrings, as her 3 sisters, part of the broken-up Amsterdam-parure. Probably the modern jewels she is wearring are hers as well.

wow, thanks Her_Majesty!!!! I never knew Margriet has worn the small diamond tiara that Beatrix wears so frequently, it looks great on her. And I must say I have never seen Queen Anna's pearl spike tiara looking better then on Margriet (second picture)!

Is there a good picture of HRH Princess Margriet wearing the star-necklace as tiara?

Her_Majesty 06-28-2006 08:45 AM

Margriet wearing the StarShaped Tiara for the Visit from Ukraine.

HRH Mims 06-28-2006 10:05 AM

I'm not big fan of this tiara. I like that big diamants but not in triangles.

Marengo 06-28-2006 02:51 PM

I agree with you mims, it looks much better as a necklace, in Her_Majesty's overview, the 4th picture.

Her_Majesty 11-20-2006 12:46 PM

Margriet wearing the ears-of-wheat Tiara
