Could it be that she is sitting between the King and then still Crown Prince Olav because she was married to the only other next in line to a throne present (at that time Jean was still the Hereditary Grand Duke of Luxembourg)? I doubt any such consideration as honouring a deceased mother would come into play with so many royals gathered, even if she was born a Swedish princess.
: I saw a picture of young Josephine Charlotte
: wearing her peacock necklace with her scroll
: tiara. She is sitting next to the King of
: Sweden and Olav of Norway for Queen
: Elisabeth Ii State Visit.
: Why is she sitting next to the King ? To
: honnor her late Mother?.

: In contrast, Vincent Meylan has worked
: directly from the Van Cleef and Arpels
: archives, and he gives a very specific date
: of 15 December 1954 for the date the Grand
: Duchess Josephine-Charlotte commissioned the
: tiara. Source: Vincent Meylan, Van Cleef
: & Arpels page 84.
: Maybe the piece was commissioned in
: Decemeber 1954 but not completed until 1956?
: Just a thought about the disconnect between
: the dates.
