Re: Princess Beatrix' first tiara appearance
That last idea would really be wonderful. It is obvious that Maxima is really very interested in the family jewels. The documentaries made with the cooperation of the Swedish and Danish royals could be nice precedents. And after all, to quote Queen Margrethe : "we do'nt count the carats, we count the centuries". It is all about the historical and cultural value of the jewels.
As for the laurel wreath tiara, we know that it was broken when princess Louise died in 1819. So maybe it remained as such in the vaults for more than a century and was only repaired for the becoming of age of princess Beatrix.
