Luxembourg Royal Wedding: Tiara Guesses!

As we all (Or some) may know, the Luxembourgish Royal Family has a very grand tiara collection. As I posted, in March, there are the possible tiaras that Stéphanie could wear to her October Wedding.
Stéphanie, originally born as a Countess to Count Philippe de Lannoy and Alix della Faille de Leverghem (Who, sadly died on August 26, 2012.) She was born on February 18 in 1984, at Ronse, East Flanders, Belgium. She is the youngest of seven sibling and she grew up at the family estate, the Château d'Anvaing. Stéphanie is also going to be one of the only three consorts in waiting of Europe’s reigning houses to actually have descended from a noble background, once she gets married. The others? Countess Mathilde d’Udekem d’Acoz (Princess Mathilde, Duchess of Brabant – in Belgium). The other – Duchess Sophie of Bavaria (Sophie, Hereditary Princess of Liechtenstein).

Like, I said a very grand amount of tiaras. There are however, a couple that I think would look great on Stéphanie, I do have to be reminded that she is a Countess. They may have a tiara in their vault, waiting to sit on Stéphanie’s head. No matter, I’m still choosing the tiaras!
Maria Thesea - Congo Diamond Necklace TiaraMaria Theresa - Grand Duchess Josephone-Charlotte's Diamond Scroll Tiara
The Congo Diamond Necklace Tiara is a good pick, it’s been a Luxembourgish tradition, for mostly every royal bride to wear the tiara. The Belgian Scroll Tiara, which was the tiara worn by Josephine-Charlotte for her wedding photos. I do really like that piece.
Maria Theresa - Grand Duchess Marie Adelaide's TiaraMaria Theresa - Diamond Floral Tiara #2
Grand Duchess Marie Adelaide's Tiara, my possibly FAVOURITE tiara of the whole collection, I love the design. Next, the floral tiara, it’s a nice piece, and I can see it on Stéphanie’s head at her wedding.

Prinsjesdag 2012

Prinsjesdag (or Prince’s Day in English) is the day on which the reigning Monarch of the Netherlands. In this case, it would be Queen Beatrix. Addresses a joint session of the Dutch Senate and House of Representatives. In the 18th century, Prinsjesdag was the country’s most popular public holidays and was celebrated on March 8th for the then Prince’s of Orange’s birthday.

Beatrix - Outfit

Beatrix wore her usual hat attire, and the dress I very much like on her. It’s looks somewhat of what the Duchess of Cambridge wore in January of this year. I know, it’s not the same, but it does look similar.

Laurentien - HatLaurentien - Outfit

Laurentien wore her usual flower in the front of her head, and a matching dress to go with it. I do in fact, like the earrings and the orange-ish sash really stands out.

Maxima - HatMaxima - Outfit

Maxima must love me today – I love the colour pink, and I love what she wore. I do in fact don’t like how the top is sort of separated from the skirt. But, the hat does have the same style two years ago – but, I do like it.


Margriet was in attendance, I didn’t find any pictures, except this one. Although, better ones are sure to come. From what it looks like, she looks amazing. I just love it when she comes out in offical events, she always looks amazing.

Sadly, this year we didn’t have Princess Mabel join us. Mabel possibly due to the fact that Prince Frisco is still in hospital after the avalanche, and she really hasn’t really appeared in many official events.

Opening of Parliament in Sweden

Today was the opening of Parliament in Sweden. And most countries do this, such as the UK, who has it in spring, and Denmark who celebrates it, I’m sure every 2nd of October. No matter! We’ll worry about Sweden right now.


I see their going for a black and white colour code. I still like what they wore, although, I do wish Madeleine and Victoria would wear hats in the front of their face. But, nothing like this:

Crown Princess Victoria - Meeting a new Bishop

This made my worst list of 2012. I think everyone agrees with me on this one, though.

The Many Tours Of September

Over the last while, two British Royal tours for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee began. While, in Denmark the Crown Prince and Princess went to Brazil, for a royal tour.

The Earl and Countess made another Jubilee visit. This time though, to my home nation, Canada. They went to Iqaluit, Nunavut which is the farthest north that any royal(s) have been. They also went to Toronto, where they attended the Toronto International Film Festival (The Black dress where she went to).
