Very bad news from Stockholm:
Princess Christina’s jewelry was stolen from her apartment in Stockholm Palace by a 19-year-old acquaintance of hers and her husband Tord Magnusson.
The items stolen are worth a minimum of 110.000 Euro and include cufflinks from King Gustaf VI Adolf, a watch which came from the Ethiopian Emperor Hailie Selassie, and most importantly ‘a tiara’ – most likely her own small diamond and pearl tiara which once belonged to Queen Sofia, assessed to be worth 40.000 Euro.
The thief was arrested after he sold most of the pieces and claims he threw the tiara into a Stockholm river; attempts to retrieve it have been so far unsuccessful.
