  1. Queen Alexandra’s kokoshnik tiara is such a brilliant wall of diamonds! I’ve seen videos where the Queen is walking and the tiara sparkles like crazy! No doubt she felt that ball was a special occasion worthy of it. I’m sure she and the Duke made lovely memories as they spent their first married years together there.
