The queen's jewels were perfect for the event.

IMHO, obviously apart from Queen Anne Marie herself, Queen Letizia was the best and most appropriately dressed lady at the service.

Information on these jewels that pass from monarch to monarch: the joyas de pasar, or, “the jewels that are passed on.”

https://www.thecourtjeweller.com/201...sh-queens.html

And more detailed information on the Spanish language Wikipedia version.

Make sure you right click and select Translate from the drop-down menu if you don't see the quick web browser window drop down asking if you want the page translated to your PC's language.

https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joyas_de_pasar

Excerpt:
The jewels of passing are a set of jewels gathered by Queen Victoria Eugenia of Spain, linked to the head of the Spanish Royal House, and worn in turn by the queens of Spain.​

It was the Countess of Barcelona who coined the expression jewels "to pass", when Queen Victoria Eugenia (born Princess of Battenberg) gave her the historical pieces when her husband, King Alfonso XIII, died...


This brings up a very special, and yet sad, touch to Queen Letizia's using them for King Constantine's funeral.

Thank goodness for the forward thinking of the late Countess of Barcelona!
