She paired the tiara with earrings that also come from Queen Sofia's jewelry box: the long diamond and pearl drop earrings.

And here's a look at her entire ensemble. Her gown, actually a set of formal separates by Lorenzo Caprile, has been in her closet since 2004, the year she joined the royal family.
