Re: Hampden House ball. Reconsidering Princess Marina's tiara
IDK Beth, I see two different pieces, the pearl and diamond one and the Bandeau tiara as identified in the pic above. But yes I do agree with you when you say that posters will be turned off from posting if they feel no one is noticing. But I also lead a very busy work and study life but still find time for this hobby of mine. I will continue to post and comment on stuff as long as my contributions are accepted and this board has life. Thanks again Beth and to others such as "The Royal Watcher", "Kongetro", "Franck", "OmerH", "Stefan", and "992235177". "MarcA"and "Vincent", "Maridje", "Mike", and "Bryce", "JohnAF", "Thomas", and "Andrew U", and "Eriks", "mauriz" and anyone not mentioned here just continue to take part in this positive hobby and community.
After seeing so many blurry photos of Princess Marina wearing a narrow bandeau style tiara, I now strongly suspect that she wore the snake pearl tiara to the Hampden House ball. The shape of the tiara in the photo below seems to more closely resemble that of the snake tiara rather than the bandeau Ursula and Laura discovered.
