Re: Queen Mary Star jewels
I have the same recollection as 992234177 (but I haven't double checked in the biography)
Queen Mary's mother, Princess Mary Adelaide, definitely had a number of diamond stars. At various times she was reported to have worn them in her hair and in a form of a tiara.
I also think that the photos were all taken before Queen Mary married, so it is highly unlikely that the stars would have an connection to Queen Alexandra.
i Think it is mentioned in Pope Hennessy that she was given one or some star brooches for either her confirmation or presentation.
