Tiara Tuesdays: Baden Palmette Tiara*


Made by Koch. The romantic piece, whose palmette motifs join to resemble hearts, aww, was given by Luise.

Princess Luise was given this tiara for a wedding gift from her father, Kaiser Wilhelm I. Luise then gave the tiara to her daughter, Victoria of Sweden. Victoria then gave it to her granddaughter, Queen Ingrid. Queen Margrethe inherited the tiara on her mother's death in 2000. Princess Benedikte has worn it before and Princess Alexandra wore it to Margrethe’s birthday celebrations.

Margrethe first appeared in this tiara in 2001 at Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette-Marit. From then on, Margrethe has worn the tiara to many different occasions.
