Royal Mother of the Bride (and Groom!) Tiaras


In Scandinavia, royal weddings are tiara affairs for all of the guests. Today, we've got a look at the tiaras worn by Queen Margrethe II of Denmark, Queen Silvia of Sweden, and Queen Sonja of Norway as mother of the bride (or groom!).


In 1995, Queen Margrethe wore the Danish Floral Aigrette for the wedding of her younger son, Prince Joachim, to Alexandra Manley.

Six years later, Queen Sonja chose the tiara and jewels from the Norwegian Emerald Parure for the wedding of her son, Crown Prince Haakon, to Mette-Marit Tjessem Hoiby.

For the wedding of her daughter, Princess Martha Louise of Norway, to Ari Behn in 2002, Queen Sonja wore Queen Josefina's Diamond Tiara with other diamond pieces, including diamond earrings that once belonged to Queen Alexandra of the United Kingdom.

When Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark married Mary Donaldson in 2004, Queen Margrethe again chose the Danish Floral Aigrette, pairing it with diamonds from the crown jewel collection.
