Beatrix has also worn the Sapphire Tiara once as Crown Princess but I agree that it adds a certain importance to a piece when it is reserved for the monarch or spouse of the monarch. I didn't enjoy seeing Maxima wearing the Mellerio Ruby Tiara for that very reason. Princess Margriet has never worn any of the larger tiaras either. |
: There is already a division: the grand pearl

: Beatrix as crown princess.
: The big advantage of the Dutch system is you
