What an interesting observation about the cross, thank you JohnAF.
I think that, as a royal Princess, Princess Alexandra is entitled to wear a Princess' coronet, although her place in the Order of Precedence for Court functions would be different from the daughter of a monarch - but my knowledge of such things may not be accurate.
