Happy 52nd Birthday to Princess Alexia of Greece and Denmark. As eldest daughter of the King and Queen of Greece and the niece of Queen Margrethe of Denmark and Queen Sofia of Spain, Princess Alexia has attended a plethora of tiara events. In honour of her birthday, take a look at her personal Diamond Tiara-
Given as a gift to Princess Alexia from her parents, the Tiara is composed of a dense, diamond-packed design, with various motifs. It was first worn in the 1990s, and though Princess Alexia has been loaned the Antique Corsage Tiara and the Khedive of Egypt Tiara before, it has been her only tiara since her 1999 wedding.
One of the earliest appearances was at the wedding of her cousin, Prince Joachim of Denmark, in 1995. (Top left)
The first post-wedding appearances was at the 60th Birthday Celebrations of her aunt, Queen Margrethe of Denmark, in April 2000. Princess Alexia wore the Tiara for the Gala Performance and the State Banquet the next evening.
