  1. Did her daughter, Princess Tatiana, inherit that seriously impressive necklace? It looks like the stones may be emeralds, but I’m not sure. And whatever happened to her tiara? Was it yet another victim of inheritance taxation?

    1. The Tiara is the subject of a future article (for Princess Tatiana’s birthday in August) and I’m not sure of it’s fate. The impressive necklace (sapphires) was inherited by her youngest son, and unfortunately sold at Sotheby’s in 2010!
