From what I heard about it, Princess Irene does not wear a real tiara in this photo. It's said that the Princess was not yet 18 in the photo shoot and wore another kind of head ornament.

Queen Sophie’s Diamond Tiara is my favourite of the three but the The Leeds Cartier Pearl and Diamond Drop Tiara is also beautiful shame its fate is unknown!

The Princess also had a very beautiful Pearl Diamond Tiara,was probably sold off after her death?

A sapphire and diamond brooch of Princess Eugenie of Greece. The brooch was to be auctioned by Sotheby's Geneva in May of 2010.

That picture is from the pre-wedding of Juan Carlos and Sofia. The lady between them is Princess Margareta of Denmark with the large diamond tiara from Princess Marie Orleans. Behind them are supposed to be Princess Sophie of Hanover and Prince Georg-Wilhelm. The lady in the third row looks very much like Princess Irene of Greece.

I forgot how common the name Margaretha is in that family. Yes, I was talking about Prince Axel's wife and the big diamond loop tiara which had previously belonged to her mother-in-law, Princess Marie d'Orleans. If you enlarge the picture, you can make out the shape of that tiara.

Well, not exactly Greek jewels, but here is a wedding picture of Princess Eugenie of Greece wearing diamond tiara:

https://i.pinimg.com/originals/4f/5a...74c8e9c701.png

It seems to be Radziwill tiara, as it was previously worn by the grandmother of the groom, Princess Maria Dolores Radziwill, born d'Agramonte:

Princess Marina of Grecce and Denmark, as the Duchess of Kent wearing Greek Ruby Parure:

https://image.invaluable.com/housePh...3_original.JPG

The picture was taken in 1949. I don't know if, at that time, the parure belonged to her sister Olga or it was already sold to Queen Frederika?

The duchess of Kent was not short of jewels of her own and I wonder why she borrowed the Greek Ruby Parure?

It looks to me like the setting for Cecil Beaton photo-shoot:

https://www.pinterest.com/pin/532972937154468521/

Here is her sister Olga wearing the same parure, but don't know the exact date of the photo.

Marina also wore the ruby parure once before, for the state opening of the Parliament:
