Our November birthday tiara tributes continue today with a look at a gala appearance from a princess with Swedish, Danish, and German roots: Princess Alexandra of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg.
Princess Alexandra is the daughter of Princess Benedikte of Denmark, the younger sister of Queen Margrethe II of Denmark. In May 2008, Alexandra was one of the guests at the wedding of her cousin, Prince Joachim of Denmark, and his second wife, Princess Marie. Alexandra attended with her first husband, Count Jefferson von Pfeil und Klein-Ellguth. The couple had two children, Count Richard and Countess Ingrid, but they later divorced, and Alexandra has since remarried.
For Prince Joachim and Princess Marie’s wedding, which was held at Møgeltønder Church in Denmark, Princess Alexandra wore a gorgeous violet evening gown with a silver sequin wrap.
Princess Alexandra added even more sparkle to her outfit with an array of diamond jewels. The star of the show was her diamond floral tiara, which she borrowed from her mother, Princess Benedikte. The tiara, which is made of a series of floral brooches, was Princess Benedikte’s 18th-birthday present from her parents, King Frederik IX and Queen Ingrid of Denmark.
With the tiara, Princess Alexandra also wore additional jewels borrowed from her mother, including a pair of diamond pendant earrings and a classic diamond riviere.
A gorgeous diamond ribbon brooch was pinned to the bodice of her dress. Princess Benedikte has also been pictured wearing the same brooch.
A sleek diamond tennis bracelet, worn on her right wrist, finished off the glamorous look.
