Because of this the trial against a 22 year old suspected for involvement in the theft have been postponed by the Swedish Prosecution Authority who confirms that the whole booty have been found.
Why was the trial postponed because of the find? Did the location suggest that the prosecutors' suspicious were incorrect?

According to Swedish radio a man has been taken into custody for dealing with stolen goods. The man was apprehended Thursday night for a suspected involvement in the return of the stolen funeral regalia according to a press release by prosecuter Isabelle Bjursten.

Eskilstuna Crown Court have sentenced the 22-year old charged with the theft of the royal funeral regalia from Strängnäs cathedral to 4.5 years in prison & to pay a 90 000 SEK fine
Although first denying the charge he later admitted to being the one who performed the theft. This, together with his DNA being secured on the shattered glass boxes in the cathedral, makes the Crown Court certain that he is the main perpetrator of the crime.

Has the regalia been damaged somehow or is it in a good state ?

In the context of the Swedish courts, isn't that a severe sentence? I am thinking of the man at the center of the events that led the King to amend the Swedish Academy bylaws, who was sentenced to 2 years in prison after his conviction for rape.

According to what respected attorney Viktor Bank tweeted earlier the normal punishment for both a serious theft and rape normally is around two years in prison. The punishment for serious thefts are on a scale between 6 months and 6 years. Since this is deemed by the court to be an exceptionally serious theft in regard to national and cultural interests they find it suitable to weigh in on the higher end of the scale.

Unfortunately they're in a very bad state. According to an expert at leading Swedish auction house Bukowskis who had a look at the pictures they should be able to be renovated to somewhat their original status. https://www.nsk.se/2019/02/14/stulna...ftigt-skadade/

Press release from the Swedish Police on 18th June:
Now the regalia is back in Strängnäs Cathedral, from where they were stolen almost two years ago. Read about the extensive investigation and the entire criminal history.
The regalia has just been restored and is now in place in its new safe glass showcase in Strängnäs Cathedral. They will still have small traces of being roughed up during the theft, but at the same time they carry a criminal history that may even increase their value.
- The cathedral has also gained a boost. They have an exciting story to tell now, which makes people go there, says Lukas Sterner.

Quite strange that the Belgians have no Crown not even a gilded ceremonial crown that could be displayed at Funerals/Enthronements.

Szczerbiec (The Jagged Sword) is the ceremonial sword used during the coronations of Polish kings from 1320 to 1764.

No, because a crown was connected with the droit divin, being King by the grace of God and represents a territorial claim as well. The Belgian monarchy of 1830 is an "elected monarchy" by which the King is "of the people" and not of the country (as the country belongs to the people and not to the King).

Anno 2022 this sounds as pure futility but back then it was in the same league as Louis-Philippe d'Orléans who became "King of the French" instead of Roi de France et de Navarre, which was the proper title for centuries. And befitting the topic of this thread: Louis-Philippe opted for no coronation at all. This example was followed by Leopold I (who would marry King Louis-Philippe's daughter, Princess Louise-Marie d'Orléans in 1832 by the way).

Are not the tiaras that the Queen of the Belgians wear considered Crown Jewels?
