Today, Princess Alexandra of Luxembourg celebrates her 31st birthday. To help celebrate, I’ve got a rundown of the royal tiaras that she’s worn over the past decade. Enjoy the birthday sparkle!
In October 2012, Princess Alexandra wore the Nassau Floral Tiara for the pre-wedding gala during the wedding celebrations for her brother, Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume, and his bride, Countess Stéphanie de Lannoy.
For Luxembourg’s National Day Gala in June 2015, Princess Alexandra wore the family’s Citrine and Pearl Bandeau. (Her mother, Grand Duchess Maria Teresa, wears the Belgian Scroll Tiara and Princess Ingeborg’s Pearl Fleur-de-Lis Brooch.)
For the National Day Gala in 2016, Princess Alexandra wore the all-diamond setting of the Chaumet Choker Tiara. She also wore a pair of important diamond earrings. These were a wedding gift to Alexandra’s mother, Grand Duchess Maria Teresa, from her parents in 1981. They’ve also been worn by two of Alexandra’s sisters-in-law, Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie and Princess Claire, for their royal weddings in 2012 and 2013.
For a banquet at the Imperial Palace in Tokyo during the Luxembourgish state visit to Japan in 2017, Princess Alexandra (who stepped in to replace her mother during the trip) wore the diamond and pearl setting of the Chaumet Choker Tiara. She also wore pearl drop earrings from the family collection, as well as a lovely diamond necklace previously worn by her mother.
In January 2020, the Grand Ducal Family shifted the annual diplomatic gala from the National Day celebrations in June to the New Year’s celebrations in January. For the New Year gala, Princess Alexandra again wore the all-diamond setting of the Chaumet Choker Tiara, plus a diamond rivière, diamond and pearl earrings, and a pearl bracelet.
