Wedding of Grand Duchess Kira Kirillovna of Russia (daughter of the Head of the House of Romanov, wearing the Prussian Meander Tiara) and Prince Louis Ferdinand of Prussia (future Head of the House of Hohenzollern) at Huis Doorn in The Netherlands on this day in 1938. The couple had an Russian Orthodox ceremony in Potsdam with a Lutheran ceremony at Huis Doorn. Attendees included Kaiser Wilhelm II (grandfather of the groom), King Cristian X and Queen Alexandrine of Denmark (maternal aunt and uncle of the groom), and Crown Princess Juliana and Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands among a host of German royalty and nobility.

  1. The Prussian Meander Tiara is one of my favorites! It has a kokoshnik shape and it’s quite large, but it’s not overwhelming because of the trellis design. It looks light and airy, very becoming to the wearer, provided it’s not work too forward on the head. The last person to wear it was the Princess Viktoria Luise for her wedding in 2017, and she wore it far too forward on her head. I find that Princess Sophie of Prussia wore it perfectly for her wedding reception. One can only hope that there will be another occasion to see this beautiful jewel soon!
