Queen Elizabeth II talking candidly about her grandmother Queen Mary.
does anyone have the video??
Its really fun seeing her so relaxed and candid! Any ideas what tiara she was talking about?
She’s talking about the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara. Elizabeth received the tiara in 1947 from Queen Mary, but the piece wasn’t reunited with its base (which Mary wore alone as a bandeau) until 1969.
Anonymous asked: What are the orders Princess Mary has in that picture? If you know, of course. :) I recognize the Family Orders of George V, VI and Elizabeth II, but the one above those three is one I can't identify.
I believe it’s The Imperial Order of the Crown of India.
Princess Mary, the Princess Royal and Countess of Harewood (1897-1965), third child and only daughter of King George V and Queen Mary.

This is probably going to sound ridiculous, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen a color picture of her… She’s beautiful
and so sparkly!!
I don’t think I have either. Which as she is one of my fave royals I am excited to see it.
What tiara is that she’s wearing?
Her diamond fringe tiara. She received it as a wedding gift, and her family auctioned it after she died. It’s owned now by the Duke of Westminster.
The Delhi Durbar Tiara
Garrard for Queen Mary, 1911
What tiara is Diana wearing at 44:52? I thought she only ever wore the Cambridge Lover’s Knot and hte Spencer tiara in public?
There’s no footage of Diana in this video, so I assume you mean the Royal Jewels documentary? She’s wearing the Spencer Tiara at 44:52 on that one.
