  1. Wow! I had to do a double take on several of these photos! For a moment I thought Princess Kira of Prussia was wearing the Empress Augusta Viktoria’s clover leaf coronet, but it looks like this is either a copy or made very similarly on purpose. And when I scrolled to the 4th photo, I thought the lady in the flowery gown was Queen Louise of Sweden wearing Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother’s Boucheron tiara! Wrong again, though! And I’m so sad that the Kents no longer have the Kent Pearl Circle tiara. That was so pretty, and I truly feel Princess Alexandra should have inherited that from her mother. But then the late Duchess had strange ideas about that. One thing’s for sure, there was a lot of bling at this party!
