Re: Query re RDavid's blog
I always post in both Spanish and English, there is no need to translate. If it is not on the caption it is on the comments (because sadly Instagram has a limit of characters for the caption).
Well... I think Queen Ena is a bit mistaken in that part. It is known that Queen Frederica gave to her daughter the diamonds that she wore on the wedding day (necklace with cross, earrings and bracelet) and the pair of ruby earrings from her collection so Sofia could pair them with the ruby necklace given by the very rich Niarchos.
The bracelets were reportedly the wedding gift from Constantine and Irene, the brother and sister.
I guess she received the Prussian tiara when she come of age, Queen Sofia started wearing this tiara when she started attending white ties.
With the help of Google translate, I gained the impression that Queen Ena of Spain was critical of the few jewels which the King and Queen of Greece (Paul and Frederica) gave to their daughter, Sofia, when she married Juan Carlos of Spain.
I was stunned to read that the Greek King and Queen gave only 4 relatively modest bracelets.
I wonder why they were so stingy?
Have we ever seen photos of these 4 bracelets?
When was Queen Sofia given the Prussian tiara? Before the wedding? Or after?
