Re: Duchess of Edinburgh and Saxe Coburg Gotha
Many thanks RDavid! If that is correct then I suspect that the jewel has left the family. I wonder if it is like so many other historic pearls and is now owned by the Qatar Museum Authority.
I have the impression that it was inherited by her daughter, Queen Marie of Romania, and then by Princess Ileana of Romania.
Does anyone know what happened to the splendid pearl brooch the Grand Duchess Maria wore for this portrait taken in 1911?
Also what Order was she wearing?
