Bettina is a daughter of the late Count Lennart Bernadotte and his second wife, Countess Sonja. (Lennart was the son of Prince Wilhelm of Sweden and Grand Duchess Maria Pavlovna of Russia.) Here you get a good look at Bettina's unusual tiara, which features multi-colored gemstones sitting atop a tall, modern diamond base.
