1. But of course, it’s the state visit tiara that wins it for me this week: Sonja wore the small version of Queen Maud’s Pearl Tiara 2.0 — and the Drapers’ Company Brooch! — for the state banquet on Wednesday evening. I actually think the full version of the tiara suits her better, but I’m not going to look a tiara gift horse in the mouth!
