Royal Tiara Challenge 2017 19/30: Favorite Norwegian Tiara

Empress Josephine’s Emerald Tiara

This is one of my more favorite big gun tiaras.  It’s gorgeous and has such an intricate design.  I think Queen Sonja wears it so well.  Even when she’s wearing an *interesting* dress (see her coral gown at Victoria’s wedding), I love the tiara.

Today in 1952, Elizabeth Windsor became Queen Elizabeth II. After 65 years she is now the world’s oldest reigning monarch as well as Britain’s longest-lived. In 2015, she surpassed the reign of her great-great-grandmother, Queen Victoria, to become the longest-reigning British monarch and the longest-reigning queen regnant and female head of state in world history.
