  1. Princess Laurentien wore it as well, at the dinner ahead of Queen Beatrix' abdication (April 2013).
    I'm not to fond of this tiara, nor Laurentiens style. But on that evening she looked absolutely fabulous with this tiara, worn with a matching aquamarine brooch and earrings, paired with pale blue coloured gown.
