Glamorous Royals

Crown Princess Mathilde and Crown Prince Philippe of Belgium. Mathilde most often wears this olive leaf diamond tiara.

Crown Princess Maxima of the Netherlands in a striking silver and red dress, which is reminiscent of something that the Red Queen, from the Alice in Wonderland book, Through the Looking Glass, might have worn.

Maxima has many tiaras that she wears, and this is one of the largest. It was worn often by  Queen Juliana of the Netherlands.
