Other sources (can't remember which one) have suggested that it was a wedding present for kaiser Wilhelm. And I think it was mentioned here earlier that the tiara last was seen in Madrid in 1966. |

: The secret of the Tiara
: The fate of the Prussian-Greek gem has long
: been regarded as uncertain. After more than
: four decades, it now appeared again.
: She was the shining star of the evening,
: after all heads craned. The opulent tiara
: which graced the head of Marie-Chantal of
: Greece, 43, seemed for over four decades
: swallowed by the earth.
: The Crown Princess wore the diamond jewelery
: piece now at the beginning of the year
: together with an emerald velvet dress at the
: gala for the 40th Jubilee of Denmarks Queen
: Margrethe II.
: Frequently had already been speculated that
: valuable gem was sold or broken up. The
: tiara that Sophie of Prussia in 1889 was
: given by her mother, Empress Victoria of
: Germany, at the wedding of Crown Prince
: Constantine of Greece, was most recently
: seen on 18th September 1964.
: On that day Queen Frederica wore the tiara
: to the wedding of her son, King Constantine
: II, the father of Marie-Chantal's husband,
: Pavlos, 44. In the 1930s, had her sister,
: Helen of Romania, liked to decorate herself
: with the precious heirloom.
: A part of the puzzle is now solved so: the
: tiara is intact and continues to be - or is
: again - property of the Greek royal family.
: But why it was kept under wraps for so long
: - that remains a closely guarded secret.
