It's a new princess for the blog, everybody! This is Princess Theodora of Greece and Denmark, the younger daughter of King Constantine and Queen Anne-Marie of Greece. She's a Brown-educated actress who, at last check, was trying to make her way in Hollywood. Kind of like a Grace Kelly in reverse, I suppose!
Theodora's wearing an honest-to-goodness heirloom piece to her cousin's wedding: the Antique Corsage Tiara, which is composed of royal jewelry pieces that have traveled from Sweden to Denmark to Greece. The diamond-and-pearl floral piece that makes up the main part of the tiara was originally a set of brooches (which could also be worn as a stomacher) owned by Queen Victoria of Sweden, wife of King Gustaf V.
From Victoria, the brooches were passed down to her granddaughter, Princess Ingrid, who married the Danish crown prince and became Queen Ingrid of Denmark. She had the brooches reworked into their current tiara form, and gave them to her youngest daughter, Anne-Marie.
This photo doesn't do the tiara justice -- it's a really gorgeous floral tiara, studded with pearls. Lovely! Perhaps we'll see this one again at the upcoming wedding of Theodora's older brother, Nikolaos...
