There were members of foreign royal families from around the world in attendance at the coronation of King Charles III and Queen Camilla on Saturday in London, and they brought some of their best jewels along with them.
We’ll head down the list alphabetically again, starting with the King and Queen of the Belgians. Queen Mathilde wore pink and white for the coronation.
She wore many of the same jewels that she wore for the state funeral of Queen Elizabeth II in September: Queen Fabiola’s Pearl Drop Earrings, a pearl choker necklace with diamond spacers, and her antique butterfly brooch. She also wore her diamond bracelet with the criss-cross design motifs on her left wrist.
Queen Jetsun Pema wore a lovely traditional Bhutanese ensemble in shades of purple, gold, and teal.
She wore a pair of eye-catching jeweled statement earrings, plus a diamond tennis bracelet and ring.
Tsaritsa Margarita of Bulgaria wore white lace, and her jewels largely remained hidden behind her hair and her purple wrap.
Crown Princess Mary of Denmark was elegant in an ensemble that read both navy blue and purple, depending on the light.
Either way, it looked good with the heirloom diamond and turquoise earrings and brooch that belonged to her husband’s great-grandmother, Princess Margaret of Connaught. Queen Margrethe II of Denmark gave the turquoises to Mary as a 50th birthday present last year. Mary also wore two necklaces, including one with an “F” pendant (for Frederik).
The Queen of Eswatini wore a ruffled floral gown in shades of pink and green for the coronation.
She accessorized with a large, gem-set collar and gold bracelets.
Queen Anne-Marie of Greece wore navy blue for the ceremony, while Crown Princess Marie-Chantal opted for a lighter shade of the same color.
Anne-Marie wore diamonds and pearls, including her diamond floral and pearl drop earrings, a single-stranded pearl necklace, and her diamond swan brooch. Her hat pin was even tipped with a pearl.
Crown Princess Marie-Chantal wore the same jewels she wore for September’s state funeral: diamond earrings and a diamond coronet brooch. She also wore small gold earrings in her second piercing.
She added a diamond ring as well, and carried an interesting clutch bag in the shape of a copy of Proust’s À la recherche du temps perdu.
Crown Princess Kiko of Japan wore a traditional kimono for the coronation. She accessorized with a pearl ring on her left hand.
Queen Rania of Jordan was elegant in buttercream yellow for the ceremony.
She wore diamond and pearl earrings and a diamond ring.
Queen ‘Masenate of Lesotho was incredibly elegant in blue.
She wore a modern demi-parure of jewels set with diamonds and blue gemstones.
Hereditary Princess Sophie of Liechtenstein wore a brilliant shade of violet for the service.
She added diamond earrings and her diamond ribbon brooch (also worn for Queen Elizabeth II’s state funeral).
A navy blue trouser suit was the outfit of choice for Grand Duchess Maria Teresa of Luxembourg.
She wore an interesting mix of jewelry, including modern diamond and pearl drop earrings that she previously wore with gray pearls. She also added a diamond floral brooch with a cabochon emerald pendant and an Art Deco-style diamond bracelet. (The necklace-esque element is part of her blouse.)
Queen Azizah of Malaysia wore a bright goldenrod ensemble for the occasion.
She wore a modern diamond fringe necklace and a scattering of diamond brooches, including a diamond ribbon brooch that she also wore for Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral.
Princess Charlene of Monaco wore subdued ivory for the coronation.
Her jacket featured pearly buttons, and she kept the rest of her accessories simple, wearing double pearl earrings and the miniature ribbon of Monaco’s Order of Saint Charles.
Princess Lalla Meryem of Morocco wore a pink caftan with a white wrap for the ceremony.
She also wore a major pair of diamond and ruby earrings.
For the occasion, Queen Máxima of the Netherlands wore a white dress from a favorite designer, Jan Taminiau.
This time, it was Máxima’s turn to sneak a little tiara-related flair into her ensemble. She wore the earrings made from four clusters that sit atop the Stuart Tiara. She also pinned an additional diamond cluster brooch at her waist.
She finished off the look with the smaller of the two Dutch East Indies Bracelets.
Crown Princess Mette-Marit was pretty in light pink for the coronation service.
She wore King Harald V’s Royal Family Order, which coordinated nicely with her diamond and ruby floral cluster earrings.
Sheikha Jawaher, wife of the Emir of Qatar, wore a gorgeous embroidered ensemble and cape for the event.
She piled on the diamonds, too, wearing impressive diamond statement earrings and diamond rings on both hands.
Margareta, the Custodian of the Crown of Romania, chose brilliant blue for her coronation ensemble.
She wore a three-row pearl necklace and pearl and diamond button earrings, plus the diamond fleur-de-lis brooch that belonged to her Greek royal grandmother, Queen Helen of Romania.
Crown Princess Katherine of Serbia wore a soft shade of silver for the ceremony.
She added a little sparkle with her diamond chain link necklace and earrings.
Queen Letizia of Spain wore a bright lilac jacket and skirt with embroidered detailing.
She nearly out-dazzled everyone with the diamond earrings from the joyas de pasar collection (which, of course, belonged to a British princess, Queen Ena).
Royal blue was also the color of choice for Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden, whose hat, shoes, handbag, and gloves all matched perfectly with her dress.
Queen Suthida of Thailand shimmered her way through the coronation in a traditional dark blue and silver ensemble.
Suthida wore a profusion of jeweled pieces set with diamonds and sapphires, including an impressive necklace and coordinating earrings.
And finally, Queen Nanasipauʻu of Tonga also chose traditional Tongan attire for the coronation ceremony.
Her jewelry, though, may have been a little nod to the Brits: a classic strand of pearls and lovely pearl stud earrings.
And that’s it for our major round of coronation jewelry coverage, everyone! Because I’ve published so much content over the past few days, I’m going to take little breather. I’ll be back with more royal jewels here on Wednesday morning. (Unless we get important royal jewels at the coronation concert—in which case I’ll pop in!) In the meantime, please go back and enjoy all of the sparkle we experienced this weekend!
