I agree. I believe that we'll see at least the Royal dukes with their wives, their heirs with their wives, the princes//ess with their spouses and the other adult descendants of King George VI attend the coronation meaning that some of them may need to either borrow from outside sources, are inventive with necklaces and brooches or hopefully and not unlikely get to loan something from the BP vaults if needed. |
I'd say that the Gloucesters', The Michael of Kents', The Princess Annes', the Linleys' and Chattos' and the Wessex' are set with their own tiaras and other pieces of jewellery while those who already have something one loan will either stick to that, or in the case of Catherine and Meghan, get some "upgrades".
Thank you The Duke of Polignac. I have a feeling where the English side of things are concerned, we may see lots of forgotten or rarely seen tiaras reappear at the next coronation even if they are on loan.
I wanted to start a thread about forgotten pieces of jewelry that belongs to the Spanish, Italian, British, Russian, French, Belgian, Austrian and German nobility and some of the formal royals who gets unnoticed.
We only tend now to get to see this jewels on the heads of brides at weeding and when this jewels hit the auctions market.
I will give some examples:
A diamond tiara belonging to the Spanish Suarez family.
Tiara of the Counts of Floridablanca.
Countess Nicoletta Arrivabene tiara, earrings, and necklace.
Baroness Bruntisfield tiara and necklaces at the coronation.
Princess Paula of Fürstenberg tiara.
The Hon, Diana Astor tiara.
Princess Alexandra Obolensky stars tiara.
The Sayn-Wittgenstein-Sayn emerald tiara.
The Waldeck-Pyrmont floral tiara and necklace.
Infanta Eulalia's Ruby Star Tiara.
The Martinez de Irujo tiara.
Princess Tessa of Bavaria emerald tiara an earrings.
and many more.....
