anonymous asked:

can you post some pics of tiaras worn by ladies with short hair?

There are a lot of tiara wearers with short hair especially if we consider all of them from the 1920s until now.  I just chose one person from each of the current European monarchies but there are many more.

Confirmed list of royal attendees for King Harald and Queen Sonja’s joint 80th birthday celebrations on May 9th - 10th, 2017. 

“I am who I am because of my lady mother. She was destined to be Queen, as am I. My mother was a daughter of the House of Lancaster and married the heir to the House of York. Tis’ I who unites the houses of York and Lancaster. She fought tooth and nail to keep our family together, to protect our inheritance and my family’s legacy. Tis’ I who will be Queen of England, and by the Grace of God I will bring peace and unity to a kingdom that is rightfully mine.” 

The Princess Elizabeth, destined in after years to become Landgravine of Hesse Homburg, was the third daughter of George III and Queen Charlotte, and is generally considered to have been her mother’s favourite child. She was born on the 22nd of May, 1770, between eight and nine o'clock a.m. ; the Princess Dowager of Wales, the Archbishop of Canterbury, several lords of the Privy Council, and the ladies of her Majesty’s bedchamber, being present on the occasion.

The Royal Princesses of England: From the Reign of George the First - Mrs. Matthew Hall

Wearing her father’s necklace and looking radiant, Elizabeth made her entrance into the ancient abbey in a dress that had taken 3,000 clothes coupons and bore 10,000 pearls. Some 2,000 guests were waiting, among them one of the largest gatherings of royalty since the time of Queen Victoria. All eyes were on the silk-clad figure as she walked down the long nave. There was an awareness that history was being made; all the ritual of a royal wedding in this building so alive with past spectacle. Princess Marina, who had helped to facilitate the match with private meetings at Coppins between her young cousin, Prince Philip, and her niece, Princess Elizabeth, was delighted. The Duke and Duchess of Gloucester were waiting in some trepidation as Prince William was to hold the long train of her dress as a page. From across Europe they came drawn to this great royal reunion, like times of old. Many were direct descendants of Queen Victoria, such as King Michael of Romania, Queen Victoria Eugenie of Spain and Queen Ingrid of Sweden; others were related by marriage, such as Uncle Charles.
