There have been so many tiara sightings over the last couple of months I could hardly keep up with them all! We have also had lots of activity from royals all around the world. And if you haven’t heard the wonderful news, Crown Princess Victoria has given birth to a new baby Prince! The Crown Princess couple posed with their daughter Estelle the day after the birth, below.

On to the tiara sightings! Just before she gave birth, Crown Princess Victoria along with the rest of the Swedish Royal Family attended an official dinner for various government officials and representatives at the palace on February 3, 2016.
The King and Queen were in attendance and Queen Silvia wore my Swedish tiara favorite, the Connaught Tiara.
A (very) pregnant Crown Princess Victoria was accompanied by her dashing husband Daniel and wore her favorite tiara, the Baden Fringe.
Also pregnant Sofia wore a fabulous sparkling dress and her wedding tiara that I have dubbed the Varmland Tiara, due to her title as a princess.
On February 22, because the Swedish Royal Family is all about #fanservice they posted the most adorable photos of Princess Madeleine wearing the Swedish Aquamarine Kokoshnik tiara and her ice blue dress from the 2015 Nobel Prize Banquet at a tea party for sick children where everyone (obviously) dressed up as princesses.
And, because apparently they heard my cry for high-quality pictures, the Swedish Royal Family also release a super HQ pic of Princess Madeleine from the day wearing the Aquamarine Kokoshnik. Like God Bless. The photos I could find of this tiara were all so crappy and so bad and now look what you have given me. Thank you.
On March 6th we got photos from another dinner for government officials and diplomatic representatives, only this one was in Norway and it was held March 3rd. No official photos were released by the court, so please forgive the quality…the Swedes really spoil us.
The King and Queen of Belgium have recently been on a state visit to Germany and on March 8th there was a State Dinner. Queen Mathilde wore the Belgian Laurel Wreath Tiara and a dress that looked oddly familiar.
And last, but certainly not least the Danish Royal Family were out in force March 15th at a dinner hosted by Queen Margrethe for arts & culture. While some tiaras were not a surprise, Crown Princess Mary sent waves through the royal watching world when she debuted the tiara version of a necklace she had worn for Queen Margrethe’s birthday celebrations in 2015.
Once again, please forgive my photos, I had to steal these off of Twitter (click on photo for source). Queen Margrethe wore the Baden Palmette Tiara and Princess Marie wore her classic Danish Diamond Floral Tiara. We don’t know much about Mary’s tiara, there has been no word from the royal court. But we can tell that it is a convertible diamond tiara with diamond uprights similar in design to the ones on the Girls of Great Britain Tiara. In my opinion is is quite a bit more regal than Mary’s Wedding Tiara and gives the Danish Ruby Parure a run for its money. I really hope that we see her in this tiara again soon and get some better photos. For now, we in the tiara world are calling this the Danish Necklace Tiara.
Here’s a slightly closer look at Mary’s new tiara…
