The wedding celebrations in Jordan continued on Thursday night with a grand state banquet—and lots of royal tiaras!
Princess Rajwa changed into a second dress for the banquet. The gown was reportedly made by Dolce & Gabbana.
She wore the same tiara and earrings that she’d worn earlier in the day, but with an updo this time.
Delightfully, there were tiaras for all the guests this time! Queen Rania wore her Arabic Scroll Tiara for the banquet and secured her order sash with a diamond crown brooch.
Princess Iman wore the same diamond tiara from Chaumet that she wore for her own royal wedding in March.
Princess Salma borrowed Queen Rania’s Boucheron Bracelet Tiara for the banquet.
The groom’s grandmother, Princess Muna, was elegant in a diamond and pearl tiara.
King Abdullah’s elder half-sister, Princess Alia, wore an antique diamond tiara with a floral design motif.
The King’s younger sister, Princess Zein, wore a diamond and pearl tiara previously worn by their mother, Princess Muna.
Princess Zein’s twin, Princess Aisha, wore a diamond bandeau with an interlocking design. This tiara was also previously worn by Princess Muna, and Princess Aisha wore it as her wedding tiara.
The King’s sister-in-law, Princess Zeina (wife of Prince Faisal) wore a diamond tiara as well.
Another sister-in-law, Princess Rym (wife of Prince Ali) chose a diamond and pearl fringe tiara. (It reminds me a lot of the one worn by the Duchess of Kent.)
The King’s youngest half-sister, Princess Raiyah, wore a slender golden bandeau.
Another sister-in-law, Princess Fahdah (wife of Prince Hashim) went sans tiara for the banquet.
Princess Sarvath, wife of the King’s uncle, Prince Hassan, went tiara-free as well, though she wore a hair comb that looks to be set with amethysts, plus coordinating earrings.
Princess Basma, the King’s aunt, wore her diamond wedding tiara, a legacy from her mother, Queen Zein.
Many of the foreign royal guests brought along their tiaras, too. Princess Elisabeth of Belgium wore the lovely antique diamond tiara that she debuted last summer in Norway. She also used her mother’s antique diamond and sapphire brooch to secure her order sash.
Queen Máxima of the Netherlands wore a smaller setting of the Stuart Tiara for the banquet, plus more diamonds (including Queen Wilhelmina’s Diamond Earrings and Diamond Scroll Brooch).
The Queen of Malaysia wore the country’s state diadem for the banquet, plus lots of other diamond jewels. (We previously saw her wear the tiara for the Japanese imperial enthronement banquet in 2019.)
No tiara for Sheikha Moza of Qatar, but a splendid jeweled belt and bracelets certainly helped make up for it.
Queen Sofia of Spain made her first tiara appearance in almost a decade, wearing the Niarchos Rubies.
Queen Jetsun Pema of Bhutan wore a lovely demi-parure set with diamonds and red gemstones, plus a slim strand of diamonds in her hair.
Her sister-in-law, Princess Euphelma, wore a lovely gold bandeau.
Crown Princess Mary of Denmark wore her Edwardian Tiara with its coordinating earrings.
Hereditary Princess Sophie of Liechtenstein wore the Kinsky Honeysuckle Tiara for the banquet, plus diamond earrings that belonged to Princess Gina.
Japan’s Princess Takamado wore her diamond and pearl wedding tiara and coordinating jewels for the occasion.
Her daughter, Princess Tsuguko, wore the diamond parure that she usually wears for imperial gala events.
Perhaps the very biggest surprise of the evening was Princess Beatrice of York’s appearance in the York Diamond Tiara. The jewel, which was given to her mother by Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, hadn’t been seen in more than two decades. Beatrice paired it with the same diamond earrings that she wore for the wedding ceremony that afternoon. (She’s also wearing the same dress worn for the wedding by the groom’s aunt, Princess Aisha.)
There were also some jewelry moments from the throne-less royals in attendance. Farah Pahlavi, wife of the last Shah of Iran, wore a suite of gold jewels for the banquet.
Margarita, wife of the last Bulgarian monarch, didn’t wear much jewelry, but her outfit sparkled all on its own.
Katharine Butler, the partner of Kyril of Bulgaria, wore a diamond pendant necklace with her ensemble.
And finally, we did get a tiara from Crown Princess Margareta of Romania, though she moved so quickly that it was a bit blurry! She wore the Romanian Greek Key Tiara for the occasion.
Margareta paired the tiara with diamond and pearl jewels, including the fleur-de-lis brooch that belonged to her Greek grandmother, Queen Helen. (She recently also wore it for the British coronation.)
