The state banquet at Christiansborg Palace in honour of the Belgian state visit to Denmark on 28 March 2017 – as seen in Danish and Belgian royal tiaras:

  • Queen Margrethe of Denmark wearing the Pearl Poire Tiara
  • Queen Mathilde of Belgium wearing the Nine Provinces Tiara
  • Crown Princess Mary of Denmark wearing the Ruby Parure Tiara
  • Princess Marie of Denmark (not pictured because the producers refused to give me a close-up of her) wearing the Diamond Floral Tiara

A wonderful image of Princess Stephanie of Belgium, Countess Lonyay and previously, Crown Princess of Austria. 1900s (decade)
