  1. My goodness! Whatever possessed Princess Diane to wear her tiara upside down! Its design doesn’t lend itself for such experiments. I’m sorry that it doesn’t look good on her in spite of her beauty and youth. It reminds me of the Duchess of Bajadoz’ daughter-in-law Barbara Cano who also used her mother-in-law’s sapphire tiara upside down- which was a bit more successful, though not by much.
