On this day in 2008, the Queen’s eldest grandson, Peter Phillips, wed Autumn Kelly in a private family ceremony at St. George’s Chapel, Windsor. Sadly, after more than a decade together, Peter and Autumn are currently going their separate ways. But today, let’s take one more opportunity to look at the gorgeous royal jewels she wore on their wedding day.
Happy 50th Birthday to Queen Maxima of the Netherlands! Maxima, who is one of the best and most innovative royal jewelry wearers around today, is one of the lucky people with access to the enormous Dutch royal jewelry collection. Today, we’ve got a look at all of the tiaras she’s worn since she announced her royal engagement way back in 2001. (Spoiler: it’s a LOT of tiaras!)
The Queen’s jewelry boxes are packed with brooches featuring florals in their design. Unique among them is today’s brooch: a modern diamond jewel made to resemble a spray of yellow daffodils.
